RIP Stephen J. Cannell

Master of Eighties TV

Stephen J. Cannell at his trademark typewriter

Stephen J. Cannell passed away recently from complications caused by his battle with cancer.  He was a major player in the television of my youth.  I grew up watching the Rockford Files, A-Team and many other of his shows.  He was a very talented writer and knew how to create intriguing characters.  He will be missed as we move forward with cookie cutter cop shows and mindless reality programs.
