The Fall was bizarro indeed, but Mark E Smith did produce a body of work that was unique. Sorry to hear he's gone and I know he was a rumbustious, confrontational and divisive figure but you never forgot him or his music.

John Gavin the man who was hired to play Bond after Lazenby has died. (He was paid off so that Connery could return)
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

Man!  Chuck was one of the best things about the latter years of MASH.  My favourite has to be the episode in which he spent the entire time sucking up to a British doctor who he thought was aristocracy, only to find out that he had gulled himself.

A close second, IIRC (and we've all seen how bad my memory is lately) was his performance in Doc Hollywood as the mayor.  An enjoyable bit of cheese.

His first episode is great - we really get the sense that Hawkeye and BJ now finally have a worthy adversary - but I'm particularly fond of the one in which he encounters Colonel Flagg. Flagg, expecting a Frank Burns-style potential collaborator, utterly misreads Charles, and pays the price.
