E.J. Gold's Galaxy Ezine: Science Fiction, Fantasy . . .
Culp plays a waiter on the sci-fi spy comedy "Get Smart" -- spy shows of this era predicted many of the hi-tech scientific spy gadgets of the 21st century including the shoe phone, which is now called a cell phone. Most folks don't classify Get Smart as a sci-fi sitcom, but it is, just as much as 3rd Rock from the Sun, originally a Galaxy short story by Richard Matheson.
