The Gormogons are remiss in celebrating the life of Stephen J. Cannell who passed away on September 30, 2010. Mr. Cannell worked hard (in his terms he strived for “over-performance”) to advance in a rough industry that he was interested in from a young age. He worked through his affliction with dyslexia and the loss of a son (in a strange accident where the son suffocated after a sand castle collapsed on him). His career includes the following:
- 16 novels – a recent effort in his life
- Created or co-created over 40 Television shows
- Scripted over 450 episodes within those 40 shows
- Produced or Executive Produced over 1,500 episodes
- Multiple screen writing and associated awards
Your Gormogons grew up watching Cannell’s shows (some where he wrote, directed, produced, created…) including: The A-Team, Hardcastle & McCormick, Silk Stalkings, The Greatest American Hero, Hunter, 21 Jump Street, Ironside, Tenspeed & Brown Shoe, Black Sheep Squadron, The Rockford Files, Riptide, Wiseguy, and many more.
His entertaining (even if campy or cheesy) shows will be missed – I recommend hitting up this Hulu link in remembrance.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
