This week, we take a look at one of the quintessential 1980s toy tie-in cartoons G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. In "Twenty Questions," pesky journalist Hector Ramirez weasels his way onto the Joe base to expose the truth behind the elite military team's operation and waste of taxpayer dollars. How will the Joes deal with this new threat? By pawning him off on Shipwreck of course! Also, one of us says something stupid. Yooooo Joe!
This week, we look at bona fide classic The Muppet Show. Special Guest Steve Martin shows up only to learn of a scheduling SNAFU. The Muppets have also planned on holding open auditions. Don't worry, though, a miffed Steve finds a way to get in on the act in between singing vegetables, aliens, rivals for our favorites, a surprise dance routine, a human cannonball, and more!
This week, we probably take a look at what might be the definitive 1970s docuseries In Search Of. Through diligent research, authoritative interviews, and on-site camerawork, host Leonard Nimoy and crew dig deep into the mysteries of Amelia Earhart and the Loch Ness Monster and come up with--well, you be the judge. In all probability, we might offer are own opinions. Also, "What We'd Like To See!"
Listener Andrew Reinhard requested we discuss this two-part episode of The Six Million Dollar Man that terrified him as a child...and haunts him to this day. Can the Bionic Man defeat a crashed Russian Venus probe bent on destroying Wyoming? Can we get through the final climactic Bionic Man in helicopter vs. Death Probe scene? What do we think of the Bionic Man's mustache? We can give you the answers because we have the technology!
