Short memory? Cosby did star in "I, Spy"... Do I presume "ST" surviving pushed the debut back? Or is the debut OTL & this reflects it surviving? Count me among them. I never liked either one. (Nor in "1999".) Can you say ILM? I seem to remember liking this quite a bit, too. It lacked the magic of "ST:TOS", IMO... I have a feeling it's going to bomb, if Desilu actually makes it as OTL. (It wouldn't affect Alex Cord enough to butterfly his work in "Airwolf", would it? I liked him as Briggs...) I've been a fan of Sam Elliott, too. Can't say if I was of his character in "M:I"; I have no recollection of it at all. I didn't take a particular shine to Lupus. That makes sense, disappointed as I am to see Valerie losing out. That surprises me, as good as Carol's show was. (How much of that was because I didn't quite get Flip, IDK.) It generally takes about a generation for old attitudes to change, so it follows there'd be resistance.
