September 6 in Sci-Fi History: Roger Waters and Jane Curtin

Get out your copies of both The Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd's The Wall, because it was on this day in sci-fi history that Roger Waters was born.

You've all done this, right? Play The Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd's The Wall at the same time. The deal is, you start the music when the lion roars. It's pretty impressive. Especially the clocks.

If you haven't watched the movie of Pink Floyd The Wall (1982), you should consider your commitment to dystopian storytelling. Because wow, that thing is serious.

In lighter fare, today is also the birthday of bona fide national treasure Jane Curtin.

Curtin was born in 1947 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her first big acting break was on Saturday Night Live in 1975, and from there she starred in several television shows, including the surprisingly good Kate and Allie.

More relevant to our interests, however: Curtin was the main love interest on Third Rock From the Sun.

Third Rock From the Sun is definitely one of those shows that holds way up. Particularly via which to watch the genius of a young Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Tomorrow: Benjamin Linus in the Land of the Lost.
