Jack Kelly on TV - "Claws"!?

Hey, look what I just found on Hulu--an episode of The Bionic Woman guest-starring Jack Kelly! He plays a baddie, but he looks good. And, this episode is better than that other BW he did (where he's dressed like Elmer Fudd and gets "kidnapped" by a UFO!) ;->

Incidentally, the lion's owner is portrayed by Tippi Hedren, who founded a real-life animal sanctuary and is the mother of actress Melanie Griffith.

Happy Friday! :)

The Maverick Report - "The Savage Hills"


One of this evening's Encore Maverick episodes was
"The Savage Hills", wherein Bart meets the charming con artist, Samantha Crawford (Diane Brewster), who'd already bamboozled brother Bret (in the episode "According to Hoyle").

This time, Samantha gets Bart entangled with some stolen treasury plates and the tenacious agent who is hot on their trail.

Sneaky Samantha isn't one of my favorite Maverick characters. Talented Diane Brewster does well with the role, however, and she and Jack Kelly have some sweet scenes together in "The Savage Hills". There's one in particular where Bart and Samantha are on the lam out in the wilderness. Bart's noggin is hurtin', and Samantha soothes it by gently rubbing his temples as he lies with his head in her lap. (Lucky lady! :->)

Then, Bart tries to get Samantha to admit what she's planning to do with the stolen plates. She says she plans to turn them back in to the government. Bart's not buying it, however.

Samantha claims she's been thinking of things she hasn't before, and Bart chimes in, "Like a rose-covered cottage and the patter of tiny feet?" Samantha says yes, and concedes it sounds rather ridiculous in her case. Bart thinks it sounds like a good idea, though: "It'd be cheaper to have you in the family!"

But, come the dawn, there's no cottage, no plates, and no Samantha. There's just Bart waking up to the realization that he's been fooled by a lovely face--again. ;->

Breakfast with Jack Kelly--Part II

I found a longer version of one of the "Quaker Oat Squares" commercials with Jack Kelly's hearty voiceover:
Also, when I was at the grocery store the other day, I wondered if Quaker still made Oat Squares. I moseyed down the cereal aisle and there was the familiar blue box. Only now, the cereal is called "Quaker Oatmeal Squares". I bought a box and brought it home to the breakfast table: (Irish breakfast tea has long been my customary breakfast beverage, and it does fit right in with Mr. Kelly. ;)
I'd never had Quaker Oatmeal Squares before, so this was something new for me. They're just as JK described them: "...the rich, nutty taste of toasted whole grain oats with a hint of brown sugar...crunchy little squares that stay crunchy in milk and sure taste good!" :)
