RIP Robert. Another Wild Wild West and Black Sheep fan. West always had some cool stuff.

I always liked the Wild Mr. West.
One of my cable channels is re-playing all the Wild Wild West seasons. I catch them as often as I can.
R.I.P. Robert Conrad.
End of Earth: 2 Miles
Upper Peninsula: 4 Miles
In lieu of flowers, Conrad’s family is requesting donations to the Wounded Warrior Project and The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation.
A great actor in many great series. RIP James West you will be sorely missed.
We lost Orson Bean the other day as well.

so let it be done...
Sorry to hear this - RIP Mr. Conrad
I was also a big fan of Black Sheep Squadron and the Wild Wild West - FETV is showing the Wild Wild West episodes again
'Live long and prosper'
That makes three this week; Kirk Douglas, Orson Bean, and Robert Conrad.

Knew the day was coming but was hoping it would be a while. I was a huge fan of Robert Conrad, watching most of his shows (including the failed ones like "A Man Called Sloane") starting with "The Wild, Wild West."
R.I.P., Mr. Conrad.
"Aut viam inveniam aut faciam (I will either find a way or make one)." -- Hannibal Barca
Honestly I thought he was gone decades ago, but it's pretty awful what happened, for him to live so long and die that way.
Not to make light of it, but the news reporter kept referring to him as "Mr. Bean", and while accurate, it conjures up confusing images in ones head.
Sliced bread, the greatest thing since the 1911.

Robert Conrad was a feisty individual. Saw him and Robert Blake jump up, square off and almost come to blows on the Johnny Carson show back in the late 70's. Some dispute over what was happening at the time with SAG(Screen Actors Guild/Union)

Visiting Marines in Beirut....and cracking a beer.
"The Marines I have seen around the world have, the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps." Eleanor Roosevelt, 1945

RIP sir... Watching Black Sheep Sqaudron with my Grandfather is a good memory
Blown away by his answer to the last question. Godspeed Robert again you be sorely missed.
Bob would have been so happy, that in the obit I saw, there was a photo of him with his shirt off. I think it was in his contract, that at some point in every episode of whatever show he was in, there would be an excuse to take his shirt off.
RIP Mr. Conrad.
Some great shows, great memories.
