Good Night Sweet Prince

On November 10th, we lost someone special. Despite a winning/creepy smile, sardonic wit, and the best lines to ever come out of a robot’s mouth, Cromartie was somehow taken out by a magic shotgun. This came as a great shock to many of us, I know, as he was not only the greatest Terminator to ever step out of an electric ball of nudity, but he was without a doubt the best character on SCC.cromartie01

Starting life as little more than a thinly veiled stuntman with a gun in his leg, it turned out that being decapitated with a radioactive future gun was the best thing that could have happened to him. Thus did Cromartie start down the long road to self discovery, first in his clever ‘post-apocalyptic hobo’ guise, then as everyone’s favourite flesh golem, before finally settling down in the body of an actor of Beastmaster-level popularity. During this time he won our hearts, tossing dead SWAT officers into a pool and killing no less than one Lost cast member.

Now, I know what you’re saying: SCC isn’t exactly a ratings bonanza, and they were lucky to get a full season pickup, so why would they kill off their best character? Well, he is a Terminator, so there’s always hope for a roboty resurrection. He’s already made it through one post mortum episode, so it remains my hope that “we’ll see” him up and shooting people soon. Until then, let us mourn the loss of one of the greats.

  1. I don’t think the Shotgun was magic. I think it ammunition from the same company that brought you the Kennedy assassination.

  2. I want 3 dates on my headstone too.

    I know this guy from Deadwood where he played a creepy little grunt runner dude that killed like atleast 3 hookers then hung himself out a window. I think thats him, hard to tell without the chaps.

  3. Yeah, he was in Deadwood. IMDB, such a wonderful thing.

  4. I can feel your sarcasm though the interwebs. Jerk
