Godzilla Marathon Promos

Godzilla movie marathons were a common staple of 90’s television programming, even before the hype over Tristar’s 1998 disappointment started. Although most of them were promoted by simply combining narration with clips from the films, some stations rolled up their sleeves to create something truly special. Our first example comes to us from WGN, as …

Happy 50th To The Munsters!

Today marks the 50th Anniversary of The Munsters. Last week saw the 50th anniversary of The Addams Family tv show, but since we work blue collar here, we have a bit of an affinity towards the middle class American dream that is The Munsters. We’ll have more about this on this week’s episode of 6ftplus, …

SJTV: Rock the Vote

I don’t watch a lot of television, especially compared to what I used to. My teenage self is envious of my adult self, because if fifteen-year-old Strange Jason had access to Netflix and Hulu and all these other troves of shows and content, he would be in heaven. He would not be going outside AT …

Horror Host Bloopers

I have to admit, it’s probably better that I failed to find it, as this selection from a 1985 episode of Bloopers and Practical Jokes features bigger …

Dead (and Loving it)

Or some of you are, at least. With the Walking Dead pulling in 11 million viewers last night, it might signal that zombies still have some life in them. Ugh. What am I going to do with you, America? Look, I get it. AMC has a decent drama that deals with survivors trying to make …

The effects are really great and the acting is pretty good. All the episodes are available online for your watching.  The …
