This week we have a special Christmas edition, but we’re not covering Christmas episodes. Instead, I asked our hosts to pick a show to cover. And lo, here is the result.

This week we’re exploring hybrid toy shows from the 80s with Kenner’s M.A.S.K., commiserating about how much high school sucks with Freaks and Geeks, and returning to a childhood favorite with Saved by the Bell.

 

  • Review of “M.A.S.K.”
  • Review of “Freaks and Geeks”
  • Review of “Saved by the Bell”

 

Next episode:

We let you decide what we cover next! Next week’s theme is One Season Wonders! These are shows that only aired for a single season but are still widely beloved, like Freaks and Geeks.

The choices are: The Adventures of Briscoe County Jr, Battlestar Galactica 1977, and Eerie, Indiana

If you ever wondered whatever became of me, then I’m hear to tell you we’re on the air in WKRP in Cincinnati. Premiering in 1978 and created by Hugh Wilson, WKRP was never supposed to be a hit show. But the show, starring Gary Sandy and Gordon Jump, supported by Loni Anderson, Richard Sanders, Frank Bonner, Jan Smithers, Tim Reid, and Howard Hesseman, was a surprise hit and a long lasting syndicated show.

 

  • Review of “Pilot”
  • Review of “Pilot Part 2”
  • Review of “Turkeys Away”

 

Next episode:

In a break from our usual voting, we’ve asked our regular hosts to pick their favorite show for our next episode. We’re going to cover all three of these in one mega episode.

So join us next time when we watch M.A.S.K., Saved by the Bell, and Freaks and Geeks
