Manimal

WAS THERE no beginning to Glen’s talents? This way lies SIMON MACCORKINDALE, playing a professor who could somehow change into either a panther, hawk or snake at will, by dint of close-ups of a wobbly rubber hand turning into a sort of paw/claw. Plus shit make-up. Naturally those freakish powers were used to “fight crime”, though the relevancy of a snake in a delicate terrorist hostage situation beats us.

    When Manimal turned into a shark at the end of the pilot episode and apparently ate a baddie, Jaws-style, in his swimming pool did this make him a cannibal? A Mannibal? RIP Glen.
