  2. Hi Meredith,

    Very nicely done! You took 6 of the first ten images right of the table. And I threw some curve balls in there...

    Whoo-hoo! Excellent!

  4. Howard, you are impressive as always, and you too have just made six correct identifications. Awesome!

    You even got the "V" entry (Michael Wright)which was tough because of the shot/image I selected.

    You rock!

  5. John, actually, it was the image that made me get the shot of Elias, because the show in which he died kicked off about a month of really good episodes of "V," and his death was, essentially, quick and pointless, unlike so many TV resistance-fighter death scenes. I've always rememembered that sequence.

  6. Also, #3 is Gareth Thomas as Roj Blake in "Blake's 7."

  7. Hi Howard,

    You are right about #3 Gareth Thomas as Blake in B7! Excellent.

    And you make a terrific point about the death of Elias. "quick and pointless" -- perfect! Yep, and therefore kind of realistic. And I agree with you, it kicked off a great month of V TV back in the day!

    I see Tara,Anya and Spike from Buffy, and Cordy and Wes from Angel. And I'd say the last pic is Rita from Dexter.

  12. Brother. You were completely up front with your Spoilers warning, but I am regretful that I peeked on one image. What the heck was I thinking!?

    You see, your blog is irrisistible.

    Nevertheless, I have learned of other demises over time before seeing it happen. It won't detract from my enjoyment. : )

    Have a nice Thanksgiving my friend.

  13. SFF:

    Oh man, crud.

    I was afraid that could happen to some folks and settled on the warning in the title!

    I tried to skew towards older shows, but then thought people might say, "you forgot (that person," so I went right up to 2009.

    Bummer. I am soooo sorry if something was spoiled (and I can guess which one it was, I think.)

    best,
    John

  15. Brian,

    Thanks for putting this round of cult-TV faces to bed with the correct identification of the beautiful and talented Meghan Gallagher as the tragic Catherine Black.

    Great job!
