THIS MONTH'S THEME: BAD MOVIES FROM TERRIBLE TV SHOWS!
Back in the day, when a TV show was cancelled, it was common practice for television executives to fill giant gaping holes in their prime-time schedules by sticking 2 episodes together and showing the resulting mess as a "Movie Of The Week". Unwary viewers would tune in expecting a new "Movie" and would get stuck with a slightly limp helping of cancelled TV-show leftovers.
So let's watch two of them at 2:45 PM on Saturday, July 25th at the Multnomah HOLLYWOOD Library!
First up is episode 322- MASTER NINJA 1
. It's the '70s, and Tim Van Patten has adenoid problems and drives around in a Chevy Van with his hamster. But his life gets REALLY exciting when he meets a ninja in a bar and they decide to do a road-trip, buddy-picture kind of thing. Joel and his robot companions tear this flick to shreds, and if you can figure out what the deal is with the hamster, please let us know.
Then, we'll enjoy (?) episode 814- RIDING WITH DEATH
! It's still the '70s, but in the far flung future of 1980, a freak accident turns a secret agent invisible, which can only mean one thing: he must go undercover as a trucker and pal around with country-novelty act Jim Stafford. Thrill to Mike and the Bots as they attempt to cope with this "movie" by using the Sharp Sword of Riffing!
This double feature of cheese starts at 2:45 PM on SATURDAY, JULY 25th. We'll be meeting at the HOLLYWOOD branch of the Multnomah Public Library
, located at 4040 NE Tillamook St in Portland. (This is a new location for our Meetup, so please don't go to the old location - we won't be there!)
Non-messy refreshments are still no problem, so feel free to bring something to share with your fellow fans.
Hope to see you there! RSVP today!
