Fun fact: The guy who plays Sheriff Kyle was also Mr. Wilson in "Final Justice."

"Master Ninja Theme Song!" An abridged series I watched uses this song as their opening theme @_@ always wondered where they got it. Favorite skit ever!

They call it insipid, but I actually liked Manimal. I didn't see it in its original run, but the SciFi Channel (when it was still about science fiction) had a summer thing where they'd run a lot of older scifi series, mostly from the 70s and 80s. I thought it was kind of fun. Well-made? No, but still fun. :D

If a person wants that perfect excuse the end it all, they need only watch 'The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly'...or, Hell, even 'Escape From New York'...then watch this. If seeing how low a truly great actor can sink doesn't make you go in the bedroom, take out your Glock, and blow your brains all over the wall, nothing will.

Is there any explanation for what's wrong with Jill? Clearly, it's not paralysis since she can walk some. She manages a few steps; so what has she been doing before now? Or is it a recent problem? I'm so full of questions!

Right on Crow! It was about time that someone finally unmasked the infamous VanPatten conspiracy.

Sure this was a bad "movie" but I think I would have watched an episode of the show when it was on. Lee Van Cleef and Timothy Van Patten actually do make an entertaining pair. I lost track of what Joel and the bots were saying a couple times and had to back it up.

WHAT?! Nobody has started a thread on 'Chuck Ideas?' How about this classic self defense to use against people who want to force you to say a tongue twister....woodchucks! (I know, it's bad...help).

"Next on a very special Trapper John." Whenever they use the "very special" riff it reminds me of the 70's & 80's situation comedy ads. As a kid I knew whenever very special was used to describe an episode it involved serious (boring) material.
You say there is a very special Diff'rent Strokes on tonight? No thanks, I'll just go to my room and play with my Smaller Homes and Garden instead.

Yes, Demi Moore and went on to become a major star and Timothy Van Patten is now an award winning director, but they will always have this shame lurking in their pasts. Just as highly regarded two time Oscar nominated mainstream mega producer/actor Mark Wahlberg can never take back this….

Lee Van Cleef's ninja outfit is so ridiculous. He's supposed to be invisible in all black so he can hide in the shadows or in the dark. Yet he wears this big shiny medallion just waiting for a ray of light to hit it and give away his position. Nice going, Lee.

I loved how Joel almost laughed when he read the line "Important and dangerous work" from the letter. I can imagine the crew of the battleship Missouri rolling with laughter as their letter was read to the thrilling beat of "Master Ninja Theme Song"!

Evidently, Tim Van Patten is a director these days. Here's a list of some programs with episodes directed by ol' "Max": Sex and the City, Rome, Boardwalk Empire, Deadwood, The Wire, and The Sopranos. THE SOPRANOS, people.

It's baffling enough that a woman is fleeing a potential rapist by jumping into a stranger's windowless van without her taking a moment to assert command over the radio.

And when they put the line, "Don't do that; I like classical music" into the script, did it just not occur to them that they would have to score the first part of their high-tension car chase with a delightful and muted bit of symphony?

This movie was released in 1991. Lee Van Cleef died 2 years earlier, December 1989. It had to be in his contract that they couldn't release it until after he died.

He's an Occidental ninja master with a price on his head. He's a wisecracking young drifter with nothing to lose. They fight crime!

That's nice, but I'm not sure if I'm interested...

We also have this hawt young ingenue named Demi Moore. She only has a bit part in one episode, but we'll put her picture on the video cover higher and bigger than Lee Van Cleef's.

Better, but it's still missing something...

There's a hamster.

Does it talk?

No.

SOLD!
