Okay. Granted--Betty is a stone cold, manipulative, gold-digging trollop. But her teacher's treatment of her is unsettling inappropriate, and would cost him his job nowadays.
I mean he basically told her, to her face: "You're a sweet piece of tail, but dumber than a bag of hammers"....JESUS! The harassment lawsuit that would result from a teacher talking to a student like that these days would bankrupt the school district!

705 - Escape 2000 - over 4 years ago

So....where does the "2000" part of this mess fit in?
I'm more than halfway through this movie, and there's been NO reference whatsoever to the year 2000...matter of fact, nothing's been established regarding when this film takes place save for a vague sense that it's sometime after 1986 (the only year mentioned thus far)

Again, I'll answer my own question: The only reason they called this crap sandwich Escape 2000 is because Escape From New York was taken :P

I recognized a name in the credits, and decided to look it up on IMDB. Sure enough, that's THE Toni Basil in this film--Toni "Oh Mickey you're so fine" Basil...as a character named "Red". I had no clue she was that old! :)

So from what I've read, Rebane finished this film in 1961, but couldn't afford to release it, so Herschel Gordon Lewis bought it. Lewis decided to add some new scenes, but it was 4 years later, and he couldn't get all the origiinal actors. So basically we end up with 2 bad movies spliced together to form one horrible movie.

610 - The Violent Years - over 4 years ago

I love this show, but this episode is seriously disturbing. They've always been kind of playfully sexist, but this really crosses the line. Two lovers in a car get held up. One of them gets dragged off into the woods, stripped, and gang raped at gunpoint. And Mike and the bots not only cheer it on but keep going back to how so many other people must be lining up, hoping it'll happen to them.

Y'know, I love this episode-- but I can never seem to remember the name of the main character....if only someone else in the movie would say it out loud...

Isn't it just heartwarming how the It Stinks Guy's girlfriend is comforted by the Non-Threatening Best Friend? Basically, he explains that musicians, by nature, are unfaithful cads. He advises her to suck it up and accept a life of playing second fiddle to an endless stream of nubile young groupies...because he really does love her! Honest!

Essentially, it's HER fault for not taking Ricky's complete lack of respect for her, or for their relationship in stride like a good little doormat.

620 - Danger! Death Ray - about 3 years ago

Like Stephen was saying 2 years ago, I'm surprised, and slightly confused by this ep's popularity--I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it--but it's on the list (a rather short list, mind you) of episodes that made almost NO impression on me--along with Code Name: Diamond Head, The Phantom Planet, The Hellcats, and a few others.

Am I missing something? I'm gonna watch this tonight and see if I can figure out why I don't remember this film better.

It's not a good sign when the action in your movie is upstaged by a mural.
