Flopcast 454: Memorial Show Part 2 - And the Rest
Okay, let's wrap up our 2020 memorial list, with everyone we lost in the second half of the longest year in history. (As with last week's show, strong beverages are strongly recommended.) Including (and this isn't the whole list): Our skeptic hero (James "The Amazing" Randi), professional old dude Wilford Brimley, the creators of Scooby Doo (Joe Ruby and Ken Spears), the Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), a Mythbuster (Grant Imahara), a Bond girl (Diana Rigg), an actual Bond (Sean Connery), a bunch of classic musicians (from Fleetwood Mac, Kool and the Gang, Van Halen, The Outfield, and Midnight Oil), a couple of classic Star Wars actors (David Prowse and Jeremy Bulloch), a Gilligan's Island castaway (Dawn Wells), and... Squiggy. Plus: Kevin pesters an NBA legend and juggles Spam for Regis Philbin, Kornflake may have thrown a camcorder in a washing machine, and we recall the margarine wars of the 1970s. Because it's not nice to fool Mother Nature.
That time Regis saw Kevin on TV was discussed way back in Flopcast 025!
David Prowse and Jeremy Bulloch — we may not have seen their faces onscreen, but their presence was definitely felt.
Two talented men we lost way too young — Grant Imahara and Chadwick Boseman
Felicity couldn't have told you the name of the brand, but she definitely remembered Mother Nature, played by Dena Dietrich.
