Iconic and Memorable Roles: TV part III

Sketches and Short Stories

These are shows that don't have a continuous storyline. Each episode is separate from the last, and only in some cases are there recurring characters. I included sketch comedy shows in this section as well as self contained short story series.

Rod Serling as Narrator

What a great idea to let co-creator and co-writer Rod Serling to narrate and open each of the episodes. So many great directors, actors, and wonderfully creepy episodes.


This is from the terrifying episode "It's a Good Life"

A little more sci-fi and less scary than the Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits was still a great show, with many powerful episodes.


Martin Landau as Andros in
The Man Who Was Never Born


A very emotional and artistic episode, 'The Man Who Was Never Born' has Andros going back in time in order to prevent the birth of a man who was destined to bring about the world's destruction.

Not quite the same as the original, but as good. Sometimes not as memorable, but occasionally more creepy than the original.

Beau Bridges as Dr. Simon Kress


I chose this episode because it is the first of the new show. I believe it helped to set the tone for the rest of the show, which lasted seven seasons.

I'm guessing that the people that love SNL hate Madtv, and vice versa. A different kind of comedy show than SNL, Madtv invested a lot of stock in being offensive. Sometimes gross, many times over the top, Madtv really was a 90's kind of a show.
