There are few things worse than when any kind of demon remembers your name - metaphorical, allegorical or actual.

Re: RIP Jeff Conaway

I skip coming by the board for a day and this happens. I never have any appropriate words to say in response to events like this. It's sad. What an insufficient statement, but it is true. It is sad.

Thank you.

Poor guy. I got the impression he always had a pretty rough life, and the last decade or so seemed to be pretty horrible, from what little I heard. My prayers for his soul and his family.

* Original Star Trek core cast was alive and intact for 25+ years. B5 core cast down three already. WTF?

* @DRayburn We lost Andreas Katsulas, Rick Biggs, and now Jeff Conaway.

* @fizzixrat If we start including guest cast the list is going to get very long. Jeff, Rick and Andreas were core cast/regulars.

* @AgateGecko On any TV series, what defines core cast members isn't how much they're liked, it's if they appear in the main titles every week

* @AgateGecko But none of that matters on a personal basis: Tim was a great guy, much beloved, and his loss was a great burden.
Thank you.

Re: RIP Jeff Conaway

Jeff's best scene -- the one-take from Thirdspace with Pat.

Re: RIP Jeff Conaway

I'll echo what GKE said. Jeff/Zack was an everyman among giants. He held his own amongst them, and at times they needed him to remind them of their own humanity.

Re: RIP Jeff Conaway

^LondosHair, that is definitely one of the main scenes I remember of his. I also really enjoy his having trouble with his uniform not quite fitting. That always makes me laugh.

I also remember him from tearing off his Nightwatch armband after he'd aided in the capture of all of the Nightwatch security personnel.

Re: RIP Jeff Conaway

One of my favourite characters, right after Londo. Loved every scene of his. This is pretty awful, but you reap what you sow. Somehow I think that's something Zach would've agreed with.

Still, man. Another one goes
