Considering he popped-up a couple times on The Six Million Dollar Man, Saxon was a familiar face going back, literally, as far as I can remember. Enjoyed his presence whenever he'd pop up over the years. However...
True story: My wife would have a visceral reaction to him whenever he'd show up on TV... turns out years ago (before I even met her) she once worked for a company that had dealings with Mr. Saxon (I obviously won't get into the details)... apparently he had quite a temper with her over the phone, and they both got into quite the shouting match, the way she tells it.
So my running joke whenever he'd appear on screen would be to exclaim, "Hey, honey! It's your buddy, John Saxon!" To which she'd grumble, swear, and walk out of the room! :)
Still: I liked him!
