A couple days ago Mary Tyler Moore died at the age of 80. She was the wife of Dick Van Dyke on the Dick Van Dyke show in the 1960's before going on to her own famous sitcom - The Mary Tyler Moore Show that ran for many years. Yesterday Mike Connors who played Mannix, a private detective, also died at the age of 91. His show ran for 8 years in the 1960's to 1970's. He also appeared in other television shows and movies, his last being Two and a Half Men in 2007. Both actors will be missed.

What I find appalling is that I have just spotted an advert on here and it actually says 'You won't believe what Mary Tyler Moore looks like now'. I wish we could report adverts, even if it's a genuine lack of updating. Mary Tyler Moore was a big name here in Britain. As well as enjoying her show and its excellent spin-offs I also loved Hill Street Blues, which her company made. Mike Connors may not have been such a recognised name here but certainly a recognised face. Both actors were from that era when television had found its feet.
