I was watching an episode of The Donna Reed Show from 1960. I watched the end credits and saw that it had been written by a man named John Whedon!

And one of the characters was named Buffie.


Yes. But not entirely. He's Joss's grandfather. *G*

I love all that interconnectedness! And getting to see the young-adult version of someone you knew later on, as a grownup, is even more like time travel. In a period piece, too, to add another layer of historicity. The Twilight Zone is a great place to run across familiar actors when they were young, and then you get the 'ooo-eee-ooo' effect, but not the old-timeyness. And it's charming that so many of Susan Seaforth's mannerisms were the same!

Hugh O'Brian is one handsome dude omg.

(Oh how funny -- I was thinking back to when I found out that Nathan Fillion had been a character I knew on One Life to Live, and I didn't make the connection when I met him in the Jossverse, only realized it when I read something about his previous work. And there's your icon!)

lol, yes!

I wasn't watching OLTL regularly anymore by the nineties either, but I tuned in every now and then, and was always amazed at how familiar everything was. I could be away for years, dip back in, and feel immediately right at home.

Dr. Jeff scenes would be a fun clip hunt to go on. Baby!Jack! Even babier!Jack than Mac! D'awwwwww ...

Baby!RDA! Cavorting in the surf! Chewing the scenery! Being ridiculously young and skinny and smooooooooth. And he has something very like Daniel hair! With MS and his 'Rick' hair at FedCon, it's like a cosmic Wheel of Hair.

That was so much fun, thank you!
