    The original television survivalist. I Just watched tremors and I wish i had his house, and everything in it.

    If he had ever offered a survival school I would have been all over that. lol

    How about you guys?

    I had heard rumor that Michael Gross was actually very anti-gun prior to making the Tremors movies, and now he is very pro-gun.

    Guns are so much fun that most people can be turned after a good day out on the range.

    As far as I know he remains anti-gun.

    Interesting. Michael Gross took a dark turn after Tremors just like the guy who played Gonzo did after Trapper John, M.D. The rest of their career was spent playing abusers, rapists, stalkers, murderers, etc. HH

    Good actor, good character, bad person.

    I can honestly say I didn't realize that he wasn't a nice guy. I would only wish to emulate the character anyways. I don't really give a thought to most actors, I only enjoy their work not their lives.

    Tremors cracks me up. Sometimes I think I'm married to Burt.

    Burt's great. Tremors was a fantastic movie and I still watch it every so often. The sequals were pretty bad but that's not unusual. Starship Troopers 2 anyone?

    C'mon, how can you squabble about the assblasters being too far, yet the original grabboid was a huge worm with four biting tongues that traveled at 30mph under ground?

    :rofl:

    I loved every movie they made. Good clean fun.
