8/9 Missed question 2. I did guess some of them.

6/9. Felt like I missed more. Lindsey’s performance on “The Twilight Zone” really surprised me. I thought he was going to be comic relief, but he was rather cold-blooded in that episode.

Just some trivia here: photo #9 the actor on the left is Walker Edmiston. He's also a voice actor. He was the voice of "Slugworth" in the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

I got 6 out of 9. One show I hardly ever saw was CHIP's. METV does not currently or recently shown CHIP's. I didn't know too many of the Westerns either, as I'm not really a fan except for Gunsmoke. Goober was also on Mayberry RFD, but there were no questions about Mayberry RFD.

"You got 6 out of 9. ------Looks like you went under the hood to find these answers, nice work!" -----I got 2, 4, and 9 wrong. I never saw that episode of "CHiPs" he was in, in #9.
