I was finally able to record Jon’s four episodes of MARCUS WELBY M.D. from my PVR onto my computer. A station where I live was playing the show from beginning to end and I waited for what seemed like forever for Jon’s four episode arc to come on in season seven. And they’re finally here. Jon played the part of Eric Brandon, a brash architect who was a long time love of the show’s newcomer Janet Blake played by Pamela Hensley. Hensley was brought on as a love interest for regular Dr. Steve Kiley played by actor James Brolin. I loved this character. Jon is quite good in it despite the rather laughable fake beard they gave him. Why oh why cover that beautiful face and skin? Those eyes though are just stunningly blue though. My take on the beard though might have to do with making Kiley/Brolin more attractive, giving him a leg up as far as Janet’s affections. However, the episodes are rife with both Brandon and Kiley pissing all over poor Janet, as if she doesn’t know what she wants or who she wants. Which stands in total contradiction to her character of Queen Ardala on the show Buck Rogers she appeared in later. Now I’m not sure about you but for me there would be no contest. While I’m sure James Brolin is both attractive and a catch for Barbra Streisand, I’ll take Jon Cypher over Brolin hands down. These episode screencaps go along with the stills I posted some time ago here.
