Speaking of Cannell, has anyone read any of his novels? I have RIDING THE SNAKE in my TBR list, and a friend of mine enjoys his Shane Scully series. Also, the first season of THE ROCKFORD FILES is now out on DVD, and I've been wading through it, and enjoying every wisecrack.

Lastly, I agree that Dennis Weaver was good at what he did, especially on GUNSMOKE and MCCLOUD.
