Robot No More

Bob May died last week. One is tempted to make a "Danger, Will Robinson" joke, because that was his best-known role, but Robot jokes felt stale long ago. And besides, May's career encompassed much more than just wiggling his arms inside a Robot suit. He was a comedian, an actor, a dancer, a stuntman. He was one of those guys who was literally born into the business, had it in his blood, and did whatever he needed to do to keep his hand in. It's cool that he was able to luck into a role that turned into a cultural icon, though.
