  5. Hi everybody,

    Great identifications already, early this morning!

    Le0pard13, you were first out of the gate, correctly identifying a whole swath of these. You recognized Guy Williams (John Robinson), Russell Johnson (The Professor), Barry Morse (Victor Bergman), Daniel Davis (Moriarity), Billy West (Farnsworth), James Callis (Baltar), and James Marsters (Milton Fine). You also recognized Data as a professor (Brent Spiner) from "All Good Things." Outstanding Job!!!!

    Kentucky Packrat: More great identifications here, as well. You recognized Professor Goodfellow from the Super Friends (a tough one!!!) and you also recognized Professor Paradox from Ben 10: Alien Force! Wow! Outstanding!

    Meredith, you ticked off another difficult identification as well, Derek Farr as Professor Evans in Star Maidens!

    Brilliant job to all! Thanks for playing.

    That leaves us still to identify: 6, 7, 8, 12 and 15!!!


  6. 7: Professor E. J. Parsafoot (Charlie Dell) from Jason of Star Command.

    8: Dr. Hans Zarkov (voice of Alan Oppenheimer) from The New Adventures of Flash Gordon.

  7. I'll jump on #12 as Professor Maggie Walsh of UC Sunnydale, sinister director of The Initiative from Buffy's fourth season.


  8. Hello, my friends.

    Well, together you have taken three of the final five images right off the list! Congratulations on a job well done!

    Fang Shih-yu: You correctly identified Professor Parsafoot (Charlie Dell) and Dr. Hans Zarkov (Alan Oppenheimer!) Fantastic!

    Adam: You impressively remembered that #12 is Professor Maggie Walsh of the Initiative, on Buffy the Vampire Slayer . She was played by the great actor Lindsay Crouse.

    Excellent. We're down to two: #6 and # 15!


  9. Is #15 Professor Rush from "Stargate Universe"?

  10. Hi Michael,

    Bingo! That's Professor Rush (Robert Carlyle), from SGU.

    Great job... now we're down to the lonely # 6 in the collection...
