Interview with Kenneth Johnson at AICN
About three years ago, I posted about the death of Jack Colvin, the actor of Jack McGee in the original Incredible Hulk TV series with Bill Bixby.
Apparently, Kenneth Johnson, who produced this show and many others (like the original Bionic Woman, The Six Million Dollar Man and Alien Nation) recently gave an Interview to notorious and frequently badly-spelled internet rumour site Aint It Cool News.
The Interview with Kenneth Johnson comes in three parts, and includes his thoughts and his side of the story about V is for Victory, the 80ies hit scifi miniseries. Apparently, he just released a sequel book to the original miniseries (he wasn't involved in the second movie or the TV series much, and apparently isn't too interested in the direction they took it). In aforementioned posting about Jack Colvin and Joe Harnell, I also mentioned this sequel, though back then Johnson was still trying to get it made for TV.
An interesting read, if you're into that kind of TV shows. While Johnson definitely had many "freak of the week" episodes and often stuck to "the formula", he also had a habit of making his characters deal with actual human issues. Generally, that was more prominent in his pilots and television movies, but even in the shows themselves his characters actually had a character.
