Vernon Wells on "Knight Rider" (1986)

Time Force villain Vernon Wells (Ransik, Time Force) appeared on the original "Knight Rider" series in its fourth season back in 1986. Wells appeared as the villain during the episode titled "Hills of Fire." His character Wilson is trying to smuggle drugs, which he's hidden in a remote area. To prevent anyone from discovering the stash, he & his crew set several wildfires to keep people away. But when a teenager is trapped in one of the blazes, Michael Knight (series star David Hasselhoff) and his car KITT come the rescue and set out to find the culprit behind the flames. Playing Wells' sidekick who tricks Micheal into trusting her, is Nana Visitor. Visitor would go on to share screentime with other PR alums like Amy Jo Johnson on "Wildfire" and Edward Laurence Albert on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine." Wells appears throughout the episode and is ultimately captured by Michael.

Season 4 of "Knight Rider" is available on DVD

Michelle Langstone's (Kat, SPD) eighth appearance on "McLeod's Daughters" came in the twelfth episode of Season 6. She reprises her role as Fiona Webb in the episode "Second Best," which is a fitting title given her storyline. Fiona's impending marriage to Alex Ryan (series regular Aaron Jeffrey) has the two making serious plans about their wedding party. Alex asks his best friend Stevie to be his best man and she declines at first, to Fiona's delight since she's not a fan of their close friendship. But when she suggests to Alex that Fiona may not want to have such a male-oriented role, Alex talks her into taking Stevie on as her bridesmaid instead. While Fiona is visibly annoyed at the suggestion, she asks Stevie anyway and gets a new bridesmaid. Langstone appears in two scenes of this episode.

Season 6 of "McLeod's Daughters" is available on DVD
