Who's Who in the Strange Angel TV Show
Beware of some potential spoilers if you haven't seen the two seasons released so far.
Here's the ones I could easily identify, and some that seem to be completely made up: in bold, the few who are completely identical to their real life counterparts.
Jack Parsons = Jack Parsons
Susan Parsons = Helen Parsons Smith
Ernest Donovan = show-only character, or are there some correspondences with real life people?
Alfred Miller = Wilfred T. Smith
Joan = blending Regina Kahl + Joan Wolfe
Patty Byrne = Sarah Northrup
L.Ron Hubbard = L.Ron Hubbard
Richard Onsted = blending Frank Malina + Ed Forman
Professor Mesulam = Theodore von Kármán
Gui Chiang = Qian Xuesen
Ruth Parsons = Ruth Parsons
Virgil Byrne = show-only character, or was Sarah's father abusive and tied to the Catholic Church as the show states?
Marisol = show-only character (?)
Ernest has the occasional function of performing things in the show, that Jack P. did in real life, like the whole chemical/laboratory ‘thing.’
Ah, so that was the Importance of his being Ernest ?!
Never having had the pleasure of seeing the prog & not giving a solitary hoot about spoilers either,
Norma N Joy conquest
I probably won't watch it. The reviews make it sound pretty bla. There is too much 'programming' out there these days and most of it is crap. Most of it always was crap but...anyway.
Very hard to find good writers these days, of either books or television/screen.
Oh I know, let's make another 'reboot!' whatever the hell that means.
