    Does everyone buy their brown, hooded robes at the same discount store? Cults R Us or something?

    #6 I'm going with Buck Rogers for this one.

    1. I have an executive membership at Cults R Us. It's just fifty dollars a year... :)

      Terri -- you rock. #6 is Jack Palance (as Kaleel) from Buck Rogers: "Planet of the Slave Girls." Well done!

      Happy Monday!

  2. #2 is Kolshak: The Night Stalker. I think the episode is "Legacy of Terror".

      Yes, that's right. That's Erik Estrada (CHiPS) in the Kolchak episode "Legacy of Terror." Great job!

    1. Hi Carl,

      Yes! That's Roger Delgado as The Master. Well done!

  5. I'm a little surprised these two have yet to be snapped up, but (3) is a star turn from Roger Delgado as The Master in Doctor Who's "The Daemons", and (9) looks to be from the excellent Eighth Season X-Files instalment "Roadrunners"!

    (I half expected to see the Millennium Group feature here, too, but maybe that would have been to court too much controversy for the Cult Faces feature!)

    1. Hi Adam,

      That's right, you tagged both Delgado and "Road Runners" correctly. About the Millennium Group, I got flummoxed. Is it a "group" or a cult? I figured I would avoid controversy! :)

      True, The Group could be taken in a lot of ways, depending on which season you can tolerate.

      The boys in "Gehenna," though, definitely a cult. ;-)

    1. Hi Randal,

      You are perfect (as usual!) in your ids. Well done sir!

  7. Hi John,

    3 - Dr. Who "The Daemons" with Roger Delgado's Magnificent Mug!

    9 - X-Files "Roadrunners". (Admittedly, I was probably prompted by the mention in the post above).

    Also, I recently finished the Back to Frank Black book and it was fantastic. Thanks for adding those great essays. Bardo Thodol was always a bit opaque for my poor mind.
