Guest star tidbits:

From Quincy M.E. FAQ:

Q: Who is credited with creating the series?

A: While both Glen Larson and Lou Shaw hold joint on-screen credit with creating the show, Mr. Larson has held executive producer, creator, and writer positions for many other shows. Larson represents the driving force behind numerous television hits like, Knight Rider, Magnum, P.I. [sic], Battlestar Gallatica, P.S., I Luv You, and One West Waikiki. Not surprisingly, one of his more recent projects, One West, involved strikingly similar plot elements initially presented in the QME series; namely, the "forensic pathologist/homicide detective" angle of criminal investigation. This time Larson cast ex-Charlie's Angels' Cheryl Ladd, in the M.E. role that Klugman had successfully performed years earlier. While it was clear that the new series could stand on its own, this up-to-date drama also re-visited many similar plots and sub-plots which were sucessfully pre-tested as QME story lines and subject matter.

Info relating to Lifetime showings of the pilot episode...

From the tapes I have, it appears that Lifetime showed the pilot two ways -- as a full two-hour movie and as a two-part episode. I have two versions of the pilot, both with cut scenes that the other version is missing.

Info relating to Vanishing Act episode...

From viewer Ken Hamilton:
"In Vanishing Act, the scenes at the airport were not shot in Honolulu. This is easy to figure out from the fact that Diamond Head is not in the background - instead, the background is San Diego. The tall building with the chiseled top is a bank building. Most likely, the producers wanted those airport scenes during some time when they weren't out in the islands, so they justed used a convenient airport, so they shot at Lindbergh Field."

"Also, the airplane that was shown landing is not the one that the protected witness got off of a few seconds later. The plane on the ramp has it horizontal stabilizer at the top of the tail, whereas the airplane that was landing had its HS at the bottom of the tail. The shooting location for the ramp scenes was at Lindbergh Field's FBO (fixed base operator), called Jimsair. An FBO is where transient private planes can park, get fuel, minor maintenance, etc., as well as loading and unloading passengers."
