I forgot to mention some interesting casting. Fred Grandy, of course, trying to look not like Gopher with his menacing beard. He reminded me of Jack Bannon's post-Lou Grant appearances on Knots Landing and Falcon Crest but without the head shave. And two from Star Trek - Wrath of Kahn's Bibi Besch and DS9's Armin Shimerman. Oddly I recognised the latter sans Ferengi makeup but didn't recall the former until seeing her name in the closing credits.
