Arthur, King of Time and Space


One of the regular - or, more accurately in tv writer talk, recurring - posters on for the past ten years (besides me) is Larry Gelbart. You know, the guy in the show's credits under developed for television by and, if it's an episode from the first four years, story editor (or something like that).

I once responded to a query what he looks like by stating he looks like a cross between Woody Allen and Larry King. Before I posted this, however, I began to wonder if it was quite a polite thing to say, particularly in front of him. So I emailed him first for his reaction to the statement. He wrote back a polite but vehement denial of having any desire or right to censor what anyone else writes. Now I wonder whether I offended him with my attempt not to offend him.

People have asked him a few times what he'd've done for a series finale if he'd been with the show all eleven years. Larry's never responded definitively enough for me to recall now what he's written about it, but I always like to suggest, "Well, look at the last episode he did do." ... which was The Interview.

Thursday, in response to a request from another poster, Larry posted what he might have written for Henry Blake had McLean Stevenson still been with the show to appear in The Interview. It's at the top of this page. It was weird and a little spooky to see new material, from the creator, featuring the character from all fiction who at 14 I thought was most like me, from a tv series that's been off the air for thirteen twenty-three years come the 28th.
