Everybody knows about the pop culture legacy of Lucy and Ricky. But Lucy and James? In our Segment #2 with James Doohan, titled “Trek’s Rocky Start,” you hear the “Star Trek” star talk about the unlikely connection between “I Love Lucy” and the show that boldly went where no show had gone before.
It’s interesting entertainment industry and pop culture history — and it’s now playing on the RerunIt.com Home Page.
And speaking of bolding going where no show had gone before, actually, “Star Trek” wasn’t alone in space. Competing for sci-fi audiences in the late 1960’s was the series from producer Irwin Allen, “Lost in Space.” Coming soon to RerunIt.com, you’ll see three interesting and, we hope, entertaining, clips with actor Bill Mumy, a/k/a Will Robinson.
In the meantime, the RerunIt Shop has “Star Trek” on DVD in its various releases. Add to — or start — your own personal collection at special RerunIt prices.
As we prepare to launch our salute to “Lost in Space,” which camp do you fall into? Most TV sci-fi fans were/are either “Space” people or “Trek” people (my own term). Given that it’s election season, I’m taking a poll. Post your opinion here on our RerunIt Audience Page. Log in or sign up and then log in to participate.
Thanks for being a RerunIt! (Also my own term! 🙂 )
From Los Angeles, Brad Lemack.
