”It Was a Thing on TV: Episodes 307, 308 & Minisode 21 - BUZZR Lost and Found/SNL Funny Cars

This week on It Was a Thing on TV we look at a pair of forgotten game shows along with crazy shenanigans with funny cars and monster trucks.

 

First, usually around this time of the year BUZZR would air their “Lost and Found” marathon except they aren’t doing it seems. Whatever, we’ll have our own version! (with blackjack and hookers!) The week starts with a show from the 1950s, hosted by podcast favorite Tom Poston.  Split Personality didn't last long, though it technically aired in the 50s and 60s.

 

Next, as we've said many times, NBC in 1979 was desperate for anything that would draw eyes.  Mindreaders was helmed by a former primetime personality, trying to capitalize on an ESP craze at the time.  If only the people behind this show had ESP and could see this show not lasting all that long…

 

Finally, Saturday Night Live starts it's 48th season on NBC. In this special minisode we look back at a weird commercial parody making fun of monster truck shows where those boring funny cars turn out in the ad to be sentient beings able to achieve perpetual motion. Sadly those monster trucks are not amused by what these funny cars manage to accomplish.

Seriously, that spoon truck by Yuri Gellar sucks.

It Was a Thing on TV: Episodes 304, 305 & 306 - The T.Ocho Show/Good Morning, Miss Bliss/Captain Power

This week on It Was a Thing on TV we kiss the baby while reminding everyone that Zack Morris is trash.

 

First, with the start of NFL Season, we mark the occasion with a look at a short-lived reality/discussion show starring the two biggest diva football players of the early 2010s. Also, Mike tries taking their Twitter handle and...hilarity ensues.

 

Next, we revisit school briefly for this episode.  Before Saved by the Bell, some of its characters were in a short-lived Disney Channel show set in a middle school in Indianapolis.  Good Morning, Miss Bliss was a precursor to the popular series from the 80s and 90s.  One thing remained the same:  Zack Morris is trash.

 

Finally, 35 years ago, a series blended gritty stories, wartime allegories, and cutting edge special effects. If it wasn’t the violence that people were against, it was the toy tie-ins. A show that was ahead of its time could not have come at a worse time. Prepare for the Metal Wars as we talk about Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future.
