Did not realise the actor Powers Boothe died a few days ago.

One of those actors you forgot he was in so much stuff. One of my favourite films he was in was Tombstone.

That was a great film, I tried to watch my DVD again a few days ago. However being an early one it puts it into a weird compressed letterbox format with barely VHS quality. Oh well, good excuse to by the blu ray

John Noakes. Legend. Fab down-to-earth presenter, the likes of which we so rarely encounter. Back with his beloved Shep (a canine legend) - what a double-act they were. RIP.

RIP Peter. I hope you're enjoying some "cracking cheese" up in the great cheeseboard in the sky.

Yeah that was sad. Had a good innings etc and all the platitudes one can come up with, but I do wonder how Family Guy will respond (most importantly) now that "Mayor Adam West" has passed away!

I dont normally bother with this thread but yeah sad to hear about Adam West. Spent a lot of time as a kid watching those old classics, corny and cheesy as hell but to a kid i didnt see that, just found them exciting as anything.

As they say he had a great innings but sad news

Its quite scary when you suddenly realise how old a celeb is, its like Billy Connolly to me has suddenly 'aged' and now looks really old whereas before he just 'seemed' to be the same age forever. When you havent seen a celeb for age then see them in a show years later you cant believe how old/frail they are its a shock

Just as Lemmy tried to go on even if he was ill and almost dying on stage, its the mentality to keep entertaining that a lot of newer "stars" dont get

Adam "Best Batman" West
Was really gutted when I saw this on saturday, my lad noticed so I had to explain who he was, and mentioned I had the whole of the original series on DVD. His response was 'so we can enjoy seeing him be Batman all the time'. Which is a great way to look at it, it's sad these people pass but it's kinda inevitable and at least we have their work to remember them by.
