Its the SEVENTH AND FINAL EPISODE of the seven-part miniseries IT CAME FROM SYNDICATION! This time around, I wrap up my look at syndicated television of the 1980s and early 1990s with a look at a show that was a worldwide phenomenon and one of the ultimate examples of a syndicated television series. It’s the legendary David Hasselhoff series BAYWATCH. I take a look at a few episodes from the show’s third season, where Nicole Eggert, Pamela Anderson, and David Charvet joined the cast. It’s lifeguards making rescues and trying to navigate a high school where the queen bee is … Jessie Spano? Oh yes. It’s amazing.
I also take a look at listener feedback, make some corrections, note some omissions, and have a few final thoughts to wrap up the whole series.
It’s the fifth episode of the seven-part miniseries IT CAME FROM SYNDICATION! This time around, I continue my look at syndicated television from the 1980s and 1990s with a look at cartoons. Join me and Amanda (for her final appearance on the miniseries) for a look back at our childhoods and classics like He-Man, G.I. Joe, TMNT, Voltron, Jem, My Little Pony, Thundercats, and many more!
“Siege at An Loc” concludes as Ed Marks continues to experience the 1972 Easter Offensive in a story by Don Lomax and Wayne Vansant. Plus, we continue to go “Stateside,” this time catching up with Sgt. Poklow from the original run of the series. I also have a look at season 3 of China Beach.
It’s the fourth episode of the seven-part miniseries IT CAME FROM SYNDICATION! This time around, I continue my look at syndicated television from the 1980s and 1990s with a look at game shows. Join me and Amanda as we talk about everything from Jeopardy! to the $100,000 Pyramid and take our discussion beyond syndication for a look at Double Dare, Press Your Luck, and Supermarket Sweep!
It’s the second episode of the seven-part miniseries IT CAME FROM SYNDICATION! This time around, I continue my look at syndicated television from the 1980s and early 1990s with a look at that bastion of American television, sitcoms. From Throb to Out of This World to Small Wonder, I’ll be looking at the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to half-hour comedies on the non-network channels.
When I was growing up on Long Island, in a house that was deprived of the sweet sweet bliss that was cable television, I had seven channels to contend with. While I could watch whatever was on the major broadcast networks and PBS, I also had the opportunity to view a number of programs that were syndicated.
Now, I’m going to be bringing my experience to a podcast.
For seven weeks starting this July, I’ll be spending my time looking at a variety of programming genres that aired in syndication in the 1980s and early 1990s. Complete with special guests along the way!
IT CAME FROM SYNDICATION will start on July 11. Until now, enjoy this promo …
It’s the first of a two-part look at police story comics of the late 1980s and early 1990s! This time around, I look at the DC Comics four-issue miniseries Underworld by Robert Loren Fleming and Ernie Colon from 1987.
