    I don't really get how Hagman could be the subject of a series like this given that he was 80something and died of natural causes.

    I'm in.

    Just as long as they don't sully his memory, I wouldn't like that at all. :)

    They're now casting for an extra to play Marty Feldman in the Gilda Radner one.

    Lol. Half of these people weren’t even in the movie!

    Back on topic, I don’t know what is so mysterious about Hagman’s death. Even by his own admission, alcohol killed him....

    They will focus on anything in his autopsy that provides evidence of his lifestyle. So, signs of alcoholism and drug use is a favorite of their's. They will probably also speculate on signs of dementia and how else the condition of his corpse could the result of his lifestyle choices.

    This won't be a celebration of his life and work but a tawdry search for dirt under the pretence of being about post mortem examinations.

    This could turn out to be a valuable warning to people: If you're gonna drink or take drugs you could die as soon as your early 80s.

    Like most, I'm disheartened it's not focused on Larry's life but on his death- I watched the one for Whitney Houston and it was hard to watch- however, I do have faith in Linda's involvement.

    I hate these shows with a passion. It's like car crash TV on Channel Five with dramatic music and a doctor being all over the top clearing up if any drugs were in the person's system.

    It will break to an ad after they tease the historic drug taking.

    Saying I hate them but I did watch the one on Whitney Houston. ;)

    They're now casting Gene Simmons and others for an episode about Kiss. Not sure who's supposed to be dead.

    Rutger Hauer perhaps? He and Gene Simmons were great friends.

    I don't know either but possibly former KISS members drummer Eric Carr or guitarist Mark St John.

    Wikipedia says: St. John died suddenly under murky circumstances in early April 2007, several months after being badly beaten during a brief stay in an Orange County jail.
