Sam Jones (Flash Gordon) stars alongside Jacko (from the old Energizer commercials) as the driver of a futuristic semi-truck that can turn invisible and the cab can turn into a helicopter for escape/reconnissance purposes. A cross between The Road Warrior & Knight Rider, it only lasted 10 episodes before being canceled.

Maybe We Can See It?

Washington revealed their new team name, we’re glad it wasn’t the Admirals. BUT the team is plagued with more sexual harrassment charges including one where the video department was directed to splice together a sexually suggestive video of cheerleaders showing their privates

Utter BS in order to get ratings, the show has been on a spiral downward since the pandemic started…

Not sure we’d agree, maybe…

Have to agree, studios are looking for guaranteed hits and not willing to take many chances anymore…

“Madame Web” may become a movie which might be interesting…

This story reminds me of a Reddit post where someone took one of those DNA tests to horrible results…

We didn’t think he would leave Michigan

Sunday Cinema – “Roomies”

Corey Haim wasn’t a household name when this series debuted on NBC. A kind of “odd couple”-type show, Burt Young (who starred in the Rocky series and Back to School with Rodney Dangerfield) plays a retired Marine sergeant who goes to college as a freshman and is the roommate to a 14-year-old genius who is obsessed with fish. The show lasted only 8 episodes, which is good since Corey went on to huge stardom in the movies.

Someone uploaded copies of all 8 episodes to the internet archive, check out the pilot episode

I Want a Manager

Neil Young (who sold half his song catalog last year) demanded that Spotify either remove Joe Rogan (who’s podcast cost them $100 million and garners 11 million listeners each episode) or his song library. They promptly removed his song library. Neil has done sh*t like this before, being sued in the early 1980’s by Geffen Records for not producing “commercially-viable” albums

This could be an offensive TikTok, but it’s a true (we think) story about a young man’s elementary school field trip from the 1980’s…

The sub-reddit r/MaliciousCompliance is filled with stories of people actually doing what they’re told or following the rules foisted on them with hilarious results…

What used to be a “secret menu” for McDonald’s is now one of their latest promotions…

Transgender women are offended that they cannot use a social networking app for women because it excludes them due to facial recognition software…

Why? Why make changes to beloved advertising characters? Was anyone ever offended that the green M&M looked sexy?

Goldie Hawn gets it, she’s here to entertain and not be a political commentator…
