It’s just a whole lot cheesier when viewed through adult eyes. People today love to laugh at the initial “Star Wars” trilogy, while contrasting these first three films with Mr. Lucas’ latest cinematic creations, but “Lost in Space” makes Luke Skywalker and his gang look like state of the art sci-fi characters in comparison.

Although Allen’s main character Tim Taylor makes a living hosting “Tool Time,” a TV program that exists for the purpose of demonstrating home improvement tips, he is nevertheless relatively inept when it comes to actually doing the construction work. It’s up to his “Tool Time” sidekick Al Borland (Richard Karn) to demonstrate the proper way to perform each task, while Taylor merely talks the talk. On the one hand, this show is an excellent forum for Allen’s physical comedy and witty one-liners. On the other hand, it’s also a ...

Steve-o and Chris Pontius became the stars of a relatively educational show centered around animals and exotic locations titled “Wildboyz.” Professional skateboarder and “Jackass” regular Bam Margera, most famous for terrorizing his parents in rural Pennsylvania, assembled his cast of local friends for the MTV series titled “Viva La Bam.” The format is almost identical to Margera’s segments on “Jackass” and this two-disc set contains all eight episodes, as well as a disc full of bonus features, including bundles of outtakes, a photo gallery and other assorted goodies, including music videos and TV commercial spots ...

They said the movie and the TV show that spawned the feature film had no redeeming qualities. While I personally enjoyed the show and movie, both filled with over-the-top, goofball humor and lunatic stunts that should never be attempted at home, I can see why the critics might not like the show and its subject matter. Well, all of those conservatives who wanted “Jackass” banned from our TVs and movie theaters can now rest easy. The latest spin-off of “Jackass,” called “Wildboyz,” is actually one of the most educational shows to ever grace the screen on MTV.

As you may recall, Fox was still a relatively new network at the time, and doing everything within its powers just to get noticed. But if you have ever watched Comedy Central’s current “Chapelle’s Show,” which is the latest and greatest African-American-centered sketch comedy program, “In Living Color” looks relatively tame in comparison. (Envelopes were made to be pushed, you know.) Nevertheless, it’s with good reason that “In Living Color” was/is referred to as the black “Saturday Night Live,” because it bravely infused a large ...
