The Cult-TV Faces of: Clint Howard


  1. But first, the tranya...

  2. Loved him in ROCK 'N' ROLL HIGH SCHOOL. Still his finest role.

    I also dig how his brother includes him in pretty much of all his films.

    Since nobody's snagged these answers yet...#1 is easy, of course, "The Corbomite Maneuver" from Star Trek. #2 looks like Gentle Ben, but I'll be damned if I know any of the episode titles. I'd guess that #5 is from Deep Space Nine, but I'm not familiar with individual episodes of that series.

  4. This is fantastic. I had no idea.

    It's also really interesting how incestuous sci fi is...

    Seeing as you mention Clint Howard, how about a future review of Apollo 13 (1995)? I'd also love to see a review of The Right Stuff (1983). I know these films aren't exactly science fiction, but I think it's safe to say that most fans of the genre wanted/still want to be an astronaut at some point.


  6. Hey everybody!

    That Neil Guy, Anonymous and Dave Starry: Yep, The Corbomite Manuever is the right episode, and that's Howard as Balok (from ST: TOS). Looks like the other photos are stumping people. But Dave, you did get Gentle Ben (opening credits) -- nice! :)

    J.D. I love Rock and Roll High School too...a great movie, and one of my favorites. Yes!

    Grayson: I'd be happy to blog Apollo 13 and The Right Stuff! As a kid, I always wanted to be an astronaut, myself. And those are two fine movies...

    best to all,

    Thanks John!

    I think photo #6 is from one of the Stargate series. I could be wrong though. Ahh! Some of these look vaguely familiar. Anybody else out there?

    The last one...well we have a hint, a recent genre series on Fox.

  8. Hey everyone, okay, I guess it's time for me to fess up: here are the Clint Howard photos (top to bottom).

    #1. Star Trek: The Corbomite Maneuver.

    #2. Gentle Ben (opening credits)

    #3 Rod Serling's Night Gallery: "The Boy Who Predicted Earthquakes")

    #4: Space Rangers: (opening credits)

    #5: Enterprise: "Acquisition"

    #6: Heroes: "I am Sylar."

    #7: Fringe: "The Road Not Taken."

    best to all!


  9. damn! I literally just got done watching "The Boy Who Predicted Earthquakes" 30 minutes before stumbling on this. You would have been SO impressed when I got that right.

  10. yeah, I would love to read your thoughts on THE RIGHT STUFF as well. I love that film and watch it often. There's a lot of interesting things going on in that film.


Jaws Binge: Jaws (1975)

A modern film classic,  Jaws   (1975) derives much of its terror from a directorial approach that might be termed "information over...
