George Lowe (Space Ghost, Brak's Dad) could do a pretty decent Capt. Murphy. I think that may be what they wind up doing in the long run. (Murphy *was* in the episode the week before. Harry Goz must've died in the middle of a production stretch. I guess there's a chance for a few more Murphy episodes, then.)
I was suprised that the show worked that well without him, though. I mean, that was a damn good episode. They've really stretched those other characters out to the point that they can totally carry the show on their own.
The Space Ghost and Aqua Teens DVDs both have 16 episodes. That seems to be the number they're going with. I heard that in about three/four months they're planning on releasing the first volume of Brak and Sealab DVDs. (Harvey Birdman's supposed to be in the next batch - meaning we should get at least seven new episodes by summer. I think they're shipping him with a new Space Ghost set, but I'm not sure about that one.)
(Speaking of Space Ghost - they're right. That was a really weak episode last night. That's what I love about Adult Swim, though. They come right out and admit that the show's not gonna be that great. That bit of honesty gives them credibility when they say something like how they said that last night's Sealab was the best one since Bizzaro.)
Originally posted by Mr ShhLast night's show was hilarious. The sad thing? It wasn't until the credits started rolling that I realized that Capt. Murph wasn't there. I feel bad for not missing him.

I noticed, but I kept expecting Murph to pop in somewhere with a "holy CRAP" or something right up until the end.
If that's any indication of the shows minus Harry Goz, I'd say they're not in too bad a shape. That was GREAT.
Is anyone else hoping that they do at least one last episode with the Captain, though? Maybe one where they just splice in his old dialogue, say he's gone insane or something like that. Hell, just show him trapped under the BeBop Cola machine again, wherever the hell that room was.

Oh, the pain. The pain. LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jonathan Harris, the flamboyantly fussy actor who portrayed the dastardly, cowardly antagonist Dr. Zachary Smith on the 1960's sci-fi show "Lost in Space," has died. He was 87.
