Kim Richards, Kyle Richards, Brian Keith discussed on Nick Digilio
We're discussing some eighties TV series that were short lived and easily forgotten some of them were good, some of them were terrible. Some of them were just downright goofy. All right. How about this, Shaun Cassidy and breaking away, and I do remember this, because it was the it was terrible. And it was a TV version of one of my favorite movies, breaking away, which is what a truly one of my favorite movies, and I remember not, I couldn't believe it was Shaun Cassidy would take over the role. Sean, Cassidy gained teen idol status as Joe hardy on the hardy boys Nancy, drew mysteries. He took on the role of Dave Stohler, a guy who loves bicycle racing in the series, breaking away, inspired by the Seventy-nine feature film of the same name, the series may have done little better than it did, if it hadn't been caught up in the nineteen eighty Screen Actors Guild strike, and because of it, it didn't start production until late in the fall, while ABC had publicize it heavily. Is didn't seem to notice it, and it came on the air, and it was pulled when the schedule after it was pulled from schedule only eight episodes, seven of which were shown it ran from November. Nineteen November nineteen ninety two January Eighty-one Cassidy didn't see the film before. Oh my God. Cassidy didn't even see the film before signing onto work on the series. He didn't want to, to allow his take on solar to be influenced, by the way Dennis Christopher portrayed in the movie, the film was filmed, it was filmed in Athens, Georgia. His co stars were Tom Wiggins, Tom Brady and Jackie Earle Haley who actually appeared in the movie, but this time Cassidy was had given up on touring with his musical career, although he had released the album, wasp been speculated that he should tour somewhat to promote it. Barbara berry Jackie Earle Haley, John, Ashton reprised their roles from the feature film, Cassidy was proud of the show, and how it dealt with human human issues in relationships and it had no gimmicks. So. About this. Eight four seven says for seven Hello. Larry was a short lived in obscure. But nobody remembers it, but me I had a crush on the girl. I can't remember her name. Do you know Kim Richards? That would be Kim Richards. Hello. Larry mclean. Stevenson, it was notoriously considered one of the worst sitcoms in the history of television. And. And yeah, that was Kim Richards. I all I to she was in the which mountain escape to which mountain movies. She was in Tuff turf t u f f turf we will the no. Yeah. Kim Richards kidding. You made me play that she's on, she's also an assault on precinct thirteen she's the little girl with the ice cream cone, who gets shot by the gang members way. But that was it's Kim Richards. Kim, richard. Yeah. Her sister her sister, Kyle Richards is the girl who's babysat in Halloween. So they were in those movies, they were in those movies back to back now. They're Beverly Hills about real housewives. They're real housewives really. Yeah, they're nuts. They're both nuts. Now. Kim Richards was a ma- amassing crush a for me in the seventies. And they both appeared in great John carpenter movies Kim Richards was in a south on precinct thirteen and notoriously shot by Frank Doubleday who played Romero and escape from New York. And then Kyle Richards was the girl that was being babysit. Do you remember what the the name of the? Girl was in this whole time, precinct thirteen penny or was it, Julie, Julie, Julie, played by Nancy Loomis? No Nancy Loomis really Nancy Loomis is she's the one of the babysitters in Halloween. Man. She's a much older than that. Julie was trapped in the she Julia was trapped. She's a she's the brunette babysitter. She's the one that killed in the car in Halloween. So Nancy Loomis was like the she was the slutty one PJ souls was this one, but she's the one who goes she she gets stuck in the laundry room of in Halloween. And Kyle Richards has to come out and you know, it's Kathy. That's it there she is. Kathy Cambridge chemistry who gets plugged. Yeah. She gets to get shot and it was considered one of the most controversial. I mean, that was almost almost got it almost got the movie and x rating because nobody killed like you don't kill like a seven year old kid in graphic in graphic nature like that. Yeah. For for really no reason that was the that's the thing she just walks pay for sprinkles. Laugh at that. But it's kind of it's kind of funny in a way and I, I just think that, that detail that both of those sisters appeared in carpenter movies back to back both kind of icon roles in those movies. And now they're nuts. They're completely nuts on the Beverly and the real housewives, whatever they're both insane. I think Kim's even a little bit more insane than Kyle.
