The Cult-TV Faces of: Jonathan Harris







A mainstay of the 1960s and 1970s, the late Jonathan Harris headlined in several popular cult-TV series over the years, both as heroes and as scoundrels. How many of the many cult-tv faces of Jonathan Harris do you recognize? If you can, name the series, character, and episode (though that's harder this week...).

  1. Wow.. #2 is from Lost in Space. #3 is from Ark ][ (I just watched that episode recently). What a great series that was. It took YEARS of talking to other people about Ark ][ before anyone else I knew remembered it. I'm sure that series is what cemented my love for post-apocalyptic world. :-)

    I feel like I should know #4 and #5, but my brain isn't cooperating. #1 I have no idea.

    On pure guess work I'd go with...

    #1 The Twilight Zone
    #4 Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
    #5 Battlestar Galactica

    ...but have no idea about the episode or character names.

  4. Hey Dave:

    You got # 1 (The Twilight Zone) and # 5 (Battlestar Galacitca). But #4 is not Buck Rogers.

    Still, great job!

    I believe #4 is Space Academy.

  6. Tim - you got it! Space Academy is indeed # 4. Nicely done.

    The whole line up was

    1. Twilight Zone: "Twenty Two"
    2. Lost in Space: "The Space Croppers"
    3. Ark II: "The Drought"
    4. Space Academy: "Life Begins at 300"
    5. Battlestar Galactica: "Gun on Ice Planet Zero Part 2.

  8. Sci-Fi Fanatic:

    That's a very good way of putting it, I think. In every one of his roles, you saw that glint in his eye, that devilish (but charming) side.

    Being a fan of WWII movies, as a kid I really enjoyed the "Gun on Ice Planet Zero" episode of BSG with its 'Guns of Navarone' meets 'The Dirty Dozen' plot line.

  10. I think Lucifer may be my all time favorite Galactica character.-Unk
