I named my rabbit "Jack Tripper". So you know how I feel about his death.  frown

If you want to see Ritter in a good movie, go rent "Noises Off."  You won't be disapointed.

Noises Off? I saw that play in Ashland, Oregon during the Shakespeare Festival last year! It was awesome, I'll see if I can rent the movie. Man that was a good play.

He was in a really cheesy horror movie called Terror Tract and was the best thing about it.  He had a completly over-the-top role as a murderous real estate dealer, and just lept into it with relish, outshining the other cast members.  (Which included the dad from Malcom In the Middle fighting an evil monkey!)

It's official: 8 Simple Rules... will continue without him.  Don't ask me how.

I feel sorry for the cast. Now that the show will continue I expect it to go down the tubes faster than Spin City. They should have shown the final three episodes and then let it go.

Just goes to show, that TV executives live in some insane version of the real world sometimes.  One, where they think that people won't notice things, or that even if something happens in real life, then Hey!, let's write it into the storyline. 

If they had any decency, they would have just aired the last three episodes, with a tribute to John Ritter, and then closed it out.  Instead, the actors and everyone involved now have to put this facade on, and treat the real-life event as part of the show.  They should have just let it be.

Okay, what about the British show Taggart?  The guy who played Taggart died around 1990, but the show carried on for another decade.

Well I'm not sure about Taggart, but John Ritter was about the only reason to watch 8SR. Katey Segal was okay, but John Ritter was a t.v. veteran who was loved by many. I doubt the show will last much longer.

Well, I first heard about the news as soon as you guys, but today I watched VH1's special on him. Very sad. I once in a while watched his shows, he's a good guy. I feel bad for Katey as well. I know she was good friends with him. Like our beloved show, he'll always be remebered    smile until aliens destroy all of the earth's contents and no files are retraced!

Here is someone who's never watched last of the Summer Wine...

mikey, FJ is right.  Writing out a character because the actor quit is totally different to writing out a character where the actor's died.

And Michael J. Fox's illness isn't really the issue, because it wasn't written into the script.

I can't imagine how it would feel for the actors to act out the pain they really are going through. Those episodes will be pretty tough to watch because it will be real tears and everything. But, on the other hand, they said his widow helped make the decision to go on because he would've wanted the show to continue, so in that case, I really hope it goes well.My condolences and best wishes go out to all involved.

I hope everyone can recover from this tadgedy quickly. Its sad to see people who worked with him in pain. I aso think there's a conspiracy. Think about it, John Ritter Johnny Cash, both have John in their name. Hmmmmmm.......

I read yesterday that the show will continue without him - his character will die and the family will deal with the aftermath.

I always laughted with him in Three`s company and specialy in that movie in wich he went into TV (in wich there was a laughty parody to three`s company in wich as soon as he saw he was in the series again he began to scream   big grin  ) He was a good actor.. very bad loose.

I heard on the radio that they will show the last three episodes and have commentaries from his "TV family". I also just saw the tribute to him on the Emmys. It was sad.

Didn't see the Emmys. But, I heard about the tribute on other shows.

BTW, TV Guide have their tribute on the September 27 issue (The one with Trista & Ryan from "The Bachelorette" on the cover), as well as a "Face Behind The Voice" feature on Maurice LaMarche (the voice of the Professor) on page 20. Well worth reading.

Billy West did the voice of the Professor.  Maurice LaMarche did other voices such as Kif and Morbo.

I understand that the episode of 8 Simple Rules... will have a special introduction by Katey Sagal, if you're interested.  I don't know why I should be; I never watched the show before.

Neither did I, until tonight. But, I did. And, I have to drown myself watching it with these on hand:

Soylent Green with Slice of Soylent Orange and some Soylent Coleslaw
Croque Monsieur, Paella, Two Mutton Pills and Stein Of Mead
Small Injection Of Femislim
Fishy Joe's Extreme Walrus Juice
Thompson's Teeth
Glagnar's Human Rinds

Top it with one spoonful of honey to calm me down, two spoonfuls to help me sleep, and didn't take a third spoonful.

And to drain all of my sorrows with Molten Boron after watching it.  tongue

*Bumping this thread up*

According to my newspaper's tv journal, there's a new hour long episode of 8 simple rules on this Tuesday, with Cate and the kids mourning Paul's death.  I still worry about them pulling it off.

They pulled it off. It was officially the hardest thing i have ever watched. i bawled like a small child. i STILL have the headache all the crying caused and its been over half an hour. The second Katey reacted i was gone. And i was in pieces for pretty much the whole rest of the show.

I agree Venus, overall, they did a good job with it.  If they'd had a laugh track for any joke they told, it would've messed it up.  I'm glad that they did a good job with it, but I honestly don't see it going on past this season, it just wouldn't feel right to me.
