Farrah Fawcett, R.I.P.


Actress and eternal ’70s sex symbol Farrah Fawcett died this morning at the age of 62 after a lengthy about with cancer. I wasn’t going to post this sad news — I’m sure you’ve heard it elsewhere by sites with less Transformers-based profanity — until many readers chimed in with Ms. Fawcett’s often overlooked career in nerdery, and I’m not referring to Charlie’s Angels. She starred in both the little-known sci-fi show Saturn 3 (seen on right) as well as the Logan’s Run TV series, as well as a few episodes of The Six Million Dollar Man (she actually was married to the Six Million Dollar Man, Lee Majors, for a little while. Also, she was so damn popular in the ’70s that Mego made a doll of her — not her Charlie’s Angels character or anything, just her. This isn’t the stuff that will make into other articles and memorials. But I’m happy to help others remember a part of her legacy that others will forget.
