That 80's Show BounceGiggle

I remember that show.  It wasn't bad from what I remember, but it wasn't given much of a chance to expand or impress.

The Magician with Bill Bixby.  All I can remember about this show is the Corvette he drove.

I remember watching this show when I was a kid.  I always wanted to see the episode where he's hanging upside down in the flaming room, but I never got to see it.  I think I've been emotionally scarred ever since.

Holmes and YoYo  (a cop and his Robot partner)

I think I remember this one.  Didn't John Schuck or some other odd-looking actor play the robot?

How about:

* STRUCK BY LIGHTNING - a sitcom with Jack Elam as the Frankenstein Monster (???)

* FUTUREWORLD - every episode, they defeated the robots by spraying something in their eyes or doing something else to blind them (which was the robots' major vulnerability)

* THE MAGIC HOUR - Magic Johnson's dismal talk show

* THE ROPERS - not a good idea to leave THREE'S COMPANY

* THE EDUCATION OF MAX BICFORD - the beginning of the end for Richard Dreyfuss?

I remember that one. I thought it was great at the time. Wouldn't mind seeing it again, just to confirm that it was probably a lot dumber than I remember.

Small And Frye- A show with 2 detectives, one who could shrink to a couple inches tall.  Early 80s.
Manimal- A show where a guy had animal-like abilities.  About 1984 or so.
Makin' It- Starring David Naughton.  The song was popular, the show not even close.

You just reminded me of Big John, Little John.  That was a mid-70s Saturday morning show about a guy who took a drink from what turned out to be the Fountain of Youth. From that point on, he shifts back and forth between man and boy, usually at inconvenient times. Wackiness ensues. Had a great theme song too, perfect example of a cheesy TV theme of the time.

I was looking for clips from the shows Strange But True (80s version), and Weird 2, but couldn't find them.

I love it when wackiness ensues!  This is a sign of truly bad comedy!  It's almost as good as when hilarity prevails!

Cop Rock...cancelled for...well...stuff like this...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqTiA_LyV3k


my god, WHO ever ok'ed that show for production???



Truly, a genius.

I'm not EVEN being sarcastic. God, I wish Cop Rock was still on the air. Imagine the spin-offs! Cop Rock: Special Victims Unit would be amazing. Or how 'bout a Cop Rock/CSI: Miami crossover. I'd love to hear David Caruso sing a li'l jingle made entirely of bad puns and odes to sunglasses.

I got a few that aren't really that old, but came and went with little hubbub, and I've come to like 'em quite a lot (thanks to the magic of DVD-R bootlegs): Nightmare Cafe, Perversions Of Science, Brimstone.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
