Sunday Cinema – “Whiz Kids”

 

Whiz kids

 

Hot off his stint as Albert on “Little House on the Prairie”, Matthew Labyorteaux starred in this short-lived television series about a group of intelligent kids and their adventures solving crime. Trying to cash in on the popularity of the movie “War Games” and the up-and-coming technological age, this show was way ahead of its time. Most people across the country back in 1983 didn’t own a computer, so a major portion of the viewing audience didn’t have a connection to the content of the show and unfortunately the scripting or guest stars weren’t enough to keep them. The show lasted for 18 episodes, with today’s selection being the last.

In this episode, Alice puts herself in danger after overhearing the plans for a crime come over the drive-thru speaker at her job. It’s up to a news reporter and the gang to stop the perpetrators. Someone posted this gem online to enjoy

Sunday Cinema – “Misfits of Science”

Misfits

 

All this month we’re going to look at television series that may have been way before their time. Often these shows were canceled due to low ratings, not because of their content.

“Misfits of Science” came out as a mid-season release and lasted a whole 15 episodes before being canceled due to low ratings (it aired opposite “Dallas”). The final episode was never aired in the United States but did air in Germany & France.

Dr. Billy Hayes, a research scientist at Humanidyne – specializes in “human anomalies”. The anomalies range from a “shrinking man”, a telekinetic teen, and “Beef/Ice Man”, a scientist that cryogenically froze himself in 1937 after his love, Amelia Earhart, went missing. “Beef/Ice Man” was written out of the show after the pilot episode due to a lawsuit from Marvel Comics claiming rights to the name “Ice Man”. His memory lived on in the show as the vehicle the misfits drove around in was an ice cream truck (“Beef” needed to be kept cool otherwise he would die).

Of all the old series that television networks are considering a revival, we have the technology and the audience to make “Misfits of Science” a popular show…

Someone, it looks like, posted a clean DVD-quality copy of the double-episode pilot online…

What started out as a small Indiegogo campaign to bankroll a comedy film turned into a pretty hilarious sequel that may help to spur more films!
