It’s always interesting when a star of a highly rated show leaves. Anytime in any occupation you can have some job security take advantage of it. Of course these roles are played by real people who have lives to lead and people can get burned out.
However you see soap opera stars playing their roles for over 30 years and they are still going. Perhaps they know something about longevity.
There are some high profile exits such as Matt Smith of Doctor Who, Cote de Pablo of NCIS and many others who have heeded the call of other opportunities.
Many people have invested their hearts and souls into these characters. They live their lives vicariously through these people who do things extraordinary. To me its OK to mourn, its a loss and some folks take it hard. Exits if done right can soothe the sting of a actors departure. If an actor is killed off violently the show risks losing that fan. It will be interesting to see how characters are resolved down the road.
We need more light-hearted fare on TV and in the movies. So much is about gruesome death and end of the world stories. I want to go to a movie, be carried away and not walk away feeling depressed. Hope, love and beauty can be expressed in a intelligent way. Maybe I am getting old and pining for better days. I am a man and a lot of the sci-fi and war movies do nothing for me. Change is a good thing, what do you think?

Vintage Home Entertainment at its Finest. Most people remember when televisions were functional furniture. I love the whole look here with the TV and the stereo system in one cabinet. Pretty sure there is a turntable in there somewhere. The big speakers could provide a room filling sound that would keep people entertained for hours.
Yesterday I was helping my dad install a TV in their RV and it did pretty much everything this unit did except it had a bigger screen and was only 2 inches wide. It’s amazing how technology has changed.
In the summer of 1982 I became a teenager and I saw 3 of these films that year. Summer is the time to unleash blockbusters to bring folks into an air conditioned theater. Check this link out and you be the judge. Popcorn anyone?
