BAD  TV !!  
I'm majorly into my BAD movies... so much so that I look at BAD TV too... Never really thought about it... I mean in the right context... and I don't look at a lot of TV.  I was once again watching a BAD two-part "The Love Boat" (yes, "The Love Boat" this one from 1979) with a stunning cast like... RAYMOND BURR CHRISTOPHER GEORGE KIM DARBY JOHN RUBINSTEIN ... STOOPID plot AND stoopid dialogue.  I've always hated that show.   Now I'm watching it.  I am stunned by the casts... I think I mentioned a fraction of the actors in this two parter sh!t.  
I think I'm starting to love it.   Lookingup TeddyR  "The Love Boat" is so BAD.   Drink BounceGiggle 

Did I mention MICHAEL COLE (in a wheelchair)? (Again, yes again).

I used to really like that show too, it's light entertainment at its lightest  BounceGiggle

Lately I've been watching Jason of Star Command, that live-action kids show from 1978.  Cheesy as can possibly be imagined, with Sid Haig as the bad guy

Grew up watching Knight Rider, the A-Team, the Greatest American Hero, the Dukes of Hazzard, The Incredible Hulk, MacGyver, the Love Boat, Magnum P.I. which I enjoyed a great deal back then but I have to admit some of them were pretty bad shows at times. That said, I'd take any of 'em over most modern day reality TV shows. What about shows like Manimal and Automan? I loved Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future animated show too. By today's FX standards, that would probably be considered pretty bad. Back then, it was cutting edge. In the 90s I enjoyed stuff like Thunder in Paradise and Sweating Bullets too.

Bad television programs... Can name you just about as many of those as I can movies.

Out of the many I've seen, my top B-Rated TV picks would be:

SUPERHUMAN BAROM 1: Two children are given a device, called the "Bop", by an alien wizard, called "Kopu", that allows them to turn into a superhero called "Barom 1" (the device also has many other abilities, but that's the main one). After Kopu suffers a random case of self-combustion, it is up to the kids (Barom 1) to save Japan from a shadow alien, with horns, called "Doruge", and his army of fingerprint men, animal-based demons, plant-based demons, fungus-based demons, and even body part-based demons!

DIAMOND EYE: WARRIOR OF LIGHT: A news reporter tracks down a gem stolen by gem thieves. The news reporter gets in big trouble with these thieves, and a superhero, called "Diamond Eye" appears from a stolen diamond ring, and reveals the thieves to be members of a monster group, called the "Zensei Majin". Diamond Eye entrusts the ring in the news reporter, so that any time he is in danger, Diamond Eye would appear to save him.

ULTRAMAN ACE: The next "Ultra" in the series must fight against an alien called "Yapool", and his army of object and animal-based monsters! Including a hot-air balloon, a pigeon, a swimming pool, a salamander, a violin, a cactus, and more! But these monsters are no ordinary "Kaiju". They are stronger creatures, called "Choju". However, they seem to have a hard time avoiding decapitation, or being brutally (but cheesily) ripped apart in some other fashion.

ASSAULT! ARMOR JACK!: A Japanese toy company, Amapro's sad attempt at making a tokusatsu with their character, Armor Jack. It seems to have no plot, the budget was probably less than $1000, each of the only three episodes is about only 2:30 long, and the monsters look like fast-food restaurant mascots. The recurring theme in the only three episodes is two monsters fighting each other, and then Armor Jack appear to stab them both. It's probably one of the worst tokusatsus ever made.

MACHAAKI MAETAKE HAJIMARU YO! Nobody has told me a fully translated title for this one, so I'm just using the name it is most commonly addressed by Americans (it's the second Japanese name, written with the English alphabet). Anyways, it's a variety show where the actors have their monsters brawl for... I guess competition purposes or something. One of the actors also teaches calligraphy. I've actually never seen this show, but the images I've seen of the monsters look pretty hokey.

Yeah, I know, most of my picks were mainly tokusatsu, and that's because they are cheesy, and I love them.

I've literally watched all 22 seasons of Power Rangers.  In fact, I own the first 17 seasons on DVD.  It's got it's charms to it.

Well with no Adobe Flash Player working I can't look at embedded, but, "The Love Boat" takes the cake as far as amazing casts with sorry story lines.  Soggy story lines.  It's so bad I like it.

I love Love Boat just because it is so bad.... I have wondered more than once what the guest stars thought when they got the scripts and how much the tv studio had to blackmail them into doing the shows.

How about FANTASY ISLAND?

I thought that show was totally cool as a teen, but watching it on TV land, it's so bad my brain wants to leak out my ears!

Used to love watching that one and have often thought I'd like to see it again sometime.

On the subject of TV shows, I was bought a DVD recently of a cartoon called The Ghost Busters (which throughout makes quite some effort towards accentuating the space between Ghost & Busters). It turns out this was originally an old TV show (and the reason a certain other cartoon ended up being called The Real Ghostbusters). Kristi expressed an interest in looking up the show and I just wondered if anyone here had seen it, or knew where I could get it?

 I REALLY hate to say this, but Castle is turning into Bad TV; it's all over the place this season.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

the LOST SAUCER was awful-starring Gomer and Ruth Buzzi!
I think that was about 13 years old.

I remember that cartoon - it predated the Bill Murray movie by ten years or more - one of the actors wore a gorilla suit, and I think it was called SPENCER, TRACY, AND KONG: GHOST BUSTERS.
