The Show:

Turner & Hooch (1989)

 

On a scale of 1 to 10 on the Pumps & a Bump (original version) scale, this is a 4 of how much of Tom Hank’s package you are forced to see.

 

Weird things I noticed

 

Turner has a star badge, typical of Sheriff’s in a wallet folder for a shield badge.

 

Hooch breaks the window. When Turner is on scene investigating the death, the animal handlers go through a door with the windows boarded up. Who boarded up those windows?

 

Tom Hanks is super anal and is unreasonably angry

 

I had not seen this since the theatre, didn’t remember much, so why did I know Craig T. Nelson is a bad guy?

 

I think that this is T. Hanks, just after dumping his pre-fame wife, mother of Colin. He thought this was his sexy movie, so that’s why he fired and replaced Fonzie as the director. It’s a challenge to have the nicest man in Hollywood hate you. I remember the early interviews on Roswell with Colin Hanks talking shit about his dad, since he was on his mother’s side and hadn’t yet been won back over by his Dad casting him.

 

The music in this movie is horrible, fuck you Charles Gross!

 

Where did Hooch sleep the first night? I find it unlikely that Turner didn’t bath him immediately.

 

Why during the wacky hijinks is Hooch not pissing on something?

 

Spottiswoode is not a good director.

 

The people on Does the Dog Die need to fix their shit. They say this movie has a clown, a kid who dies, a parent who dies, finger/toe mutiliation

, shaving/cutting, and says there is a shower scene. No…there is a bath scene. Where is the one where a clown breaks in, mutilates a finger or toe and then kills a parent and child?

 

I would prefer this movie with Lea Thompson.

 

Time to get a better view of Hank’s package and taint!

 

I refuse to believe this Turner would wait until the morning of day three to give him a bath.

 

FULL TAINT SHOT

 

So hooch fucked that shoe, didn’t he.

 

VelJohnson cares way too much about Turner getting some.

 

There are some bad leash continuity problems in this movie.

 

Yeah kid, your moms a pussy because she bought a Tercel!

 

That is so not what money laundering is or how money was smuggled out of the country. This is what stupid old white dudes thought was going on, not pallets of money that filled warehouses.

 

VelJohnson is creepy as fuck

 

It’s weird that Turner is using a revolver.

 

Aaaand Hooch gets shot.

 

Aaaaand Turner kills coach.

 

Aaaaaaand Hooch dies

 

Aaaaaaaaand Turner is now the chief.

 

Aaaaaaaaaaand Turner is now shacked up with Not Lea Thompson and they have a little Hooch…I don’t think that’s how dog genetics work.

 

And least it was an easier movie to watch than the one where they teach the chimps to fly and then nuke them.

The Show:

Airborne (1993)

 

What is weird, I had not seen the movie but had seen the ending.

 

Why surfing?

 

Did they kill the dog (Slash)

 

They abandon the dream sequences

 

The introduction makes no sense, this is after Christmas not the start of a new term

 

The hockey team idiot is 20, and looks 25. He is also amazingly funny on The Patriot.

 

WOMEN/GIRLS are not PROPERTY

 

Little brown people did not play hockey unless they grew up in Alaska.

 

The hockey game is as out of place as the surfing. For a ‘prep’ team they have shitty gear,

 

If this is a game, where are the refs and coaches?

 

So they just abandon him, passed out, on the ice. Nice. He even dreams about his dog, the one they put down when they moved.

 

Who takes a leisurely shower unrelated to gym and an extended crap with reading material AT SCHOOL.

 

Luckily it was an early spring  in Cincinnati, it’s almost as if they relocated to Kentucky. This is 3 weeks after his arrival! So still January!

 

Weird diversion to the botanical garden and blue eyed soul boner jam #1. Where is the snow!

 

Gee, aren’t rollerblade brand inline skates SO MUCH cooler than skate boards and BMX’s? RADICAL

 

Sorry, I was paid for that interlude.

 

Another weird surfing interlude. Someone has a male foot fetish.

 

And now a fashion show interlude, the rare dude version. I’m too sexy for pants.

 

Gay slur.

 

Enter Alanah Ubach sporting her factory original honker.

 

The car, if you are interested, is a Pontiac Phoenix version of a Chevy Citation, sold 1980-84. so far from a new car on filming.

 

Prep douches spoil everything.

 

I’m not sure that Jack is wearing enough layers. He appears tp be wearing two jackets and a vest.

 

Math does not compute. Been here 3 weeks. Leaving in 3 months, his parents were going for 6 months.

 

He went and ruined everything with his pretty mouth!

 

Why did no one know Nikki was his sister?  She goes to the same school and should have the same name. How much younger is she supposed to even be?

 

He dreams of surfing and looking at his own feet.

 

Time for roller hockey, or contractural obligation #3.

 

So many sheets of plywood to conveniently skate over all the gravel patches!

 

He’s so good at roller hockey she just had a little orgasm.

 

Now he’s one of them!

 

Aggressive inline skating, or contractual obligation #4, racing the Devil’s Backbone.

 

Okay. How did they all get on top of the hill? Why is the “I won’t be skinny for no man” black girl the starter? Is her father the bus driver and she borrowed it to get them all there?

 

Sorry, but the ending choreography is week and the shooting removes the feeling of speed and danger. Perhaps because of contractural obligation #4?

 

Also how the fuck does surfer Johnny even know where he is going? It’s also a shame they couldn’t find a single skate Betty?

 

So Blaine drowned, right?

 

So, how did it work out for them?

 

Surfer Johnny knocks up not Jodie Sweetin. He sells his board, blades, and gear for a car seat after blowing out his knees. He ends up driving a dump truck hauling asphalt scrapings until he had a massive coronary in 2010, and in the process t-boned a school bus, knocking it into the river where they all drowned. Jodie Sweetin has an affair with Blaine, whose uncle owned the trucking company, so that Surfer Johnny gets hired, and keeps his job. To dull the pain she started taking opiates and died of an accidental overdose last year. Their 3 kids then went to live with uncle Jack, who is now out of the closet, and runs an athletic centre in a predominately refugee neighbourhood.

 

Gloria got a nose job, moved to Hollywood, and became a occasional Mexican. Wiley is still living in his parents basement where he is a semi-professional online poker player and Q-anon conspiracy enthusiast.

Dropping?

Defocused…maybe, but this week pulled it out of contention because they didn’t talk about a movie.

 

 

The Show:

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979) aka Awakening Part 1 & 2

 

the IMDB Summary

_In 1987, NASA astronaut William “Buck” Rogers is caught in a freak accident in deep space, causing his space shuttle Ranger 3 to be blown into an orbit that returns him to Earth – over 500 years later. The combination of gases that freezes him comes close to the formula commonly used in the 25th century for preservation, and his rescuers are able to revive him. In 2491, when Buck awakens from the freezing, Earth is recovering from a nuclear war and is coming under hostile attack by the Draconian Empire.

 

Oh my GOD the opening credits! Watch them! Watch them NOW!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BINijYepahA&t=19s

 

Far beyond the world I’ve known, far beyond my time

What am I, who am I, what will I be?

Where am I going and what will I see?

Searching my mind for some truths to reveal

What thoughts are fantasy, what memories real?

 

Long before this life of mine, long before this time

What was there, who cared to make it begin?

Is it forever or will it all end?

Searching my past for the things that I’ve seen

Is it my life or just something I dreamed?

 

Far beyond this world I’ve known, far beyond my time

What kind of world am I going to find?

Will it be real or just all in my mind?

What am I, who am I, what will I be?

Where am I going and what will I see?

 

 

He dreams of space sluts probably only there for the producers to interfere with sexually. Or is this porn for Mormons? There are no black space sluts after all. Why were they so cheap they had to reuse a shot right after they first showed it? Do you think they told the two female stars before of after they signed they needed drastic bikini wax? Maybe this is why Erin Grey was reluctant and late to sign on for the series?

 

The music, it is not subtle.

 

Ah, the future that was to be powered by light tubes.

 

Oh course, he must be a spy. That makes all the sense!

 

Let’s count all the footage ripped off from Battle Star Galactica!

 

This has porn quality acting!

 

I find it odd they would be monitoring analogue frequencies from 500 years ago, a cell phone from 30 years ago doesn’t work today after all.

 

Nice that not only did America remain with non-metric, they won over the rest of the world to renounce metric.

 

Yeah, you always send the boss up to intercept random interlopers.

 

Does it seem strange that Buck is so willing to have a conversation with a sentient wall clock?

 

Hey, the Bonaventure Hotel! As seen on almost every other SciFi show of the era, even Interstellar!

 

Now we get to the edit hack job. Originally, Buck was held captive after the trial, later to escape to the ruins, now it comes much earlier.

 

Because of course someone from 500 years ago could fly a space ship.

 

And the old men who made this get to complain that computers are ruining everything. Go with the combat computers! Don’t deviate! Everything was better in the old days when we did things right!

 

It can’t be the future without space disco! All the women just need that special stench of Buck rubbed on them. Buck has space roofies

 

I’m not sure this was very well plotted out. It’s kind of like they realized “fuck, this needs an ending”…maybe it all blows up and Wilma gets jealous as fuck?

 

Seriously people, find the opening credits on youtube.

 

Also, Pam Hensley and Erin Gray are smoking hot.

WHO is taking all that home video? WHO!

 

Too much Snuffy Walden, that man is treacle with extra maudlin.

 

So1E01: Pilot, 31 January 1988

In 1968, friends Kevin Arnold, Paul Pfeiffer, and Winnie Cooper attend the newly renamed Robert F Kennedy Junior High for the first time.

 

Sooooooooooooooooooo sloooooooooooooooow. I swear, today this 24 minute episode could be done in 4 minutes.

 

S03E01: Summer Song 3 October 1989

The Arnold family and Paul Pfeiffer travel to Ocean City for a little fun in the sun. However, once there, no one really seems to be having any. Paul’s allergies flare up, and Wayne and Karen’s attitudes are making it nothing like the family trips from long ago. Kevin is still stinging from the news the Winnie Cooper has a new boyfriend, until he meets a cute (but older) girl named Teri.

 

Yeah, that was Juliette Lewis. GOD, the music is as subtle as a fish to the face. Teri, by the way, has gone on to such great movies as “MILFS Like It Big 7” and “Suck It Dry 6”. Also, Soooooo slooooow.

 

S03E20: Goodbye, 24 April 1990

Kevin’s grades in Mr Collin’s Math class are not that good. After talking to Kevin, Mr Collins suggests that he could give him extra lessons to help him on the upcoming test. Kevin seems to be getting better, until one day when Mr Collins fails to show up.

 

The narration is so flat, I guess since the kids can’t/don’t have the time to act why should Stern bother to try? Well, at least it wasn’t a ‘special’ episode where Kevin gets raped in the basement – although I might have actually preferred that to this.

 

S04E11: Heartbreak,  23 January, 1991

Both Kevin Arnold and Winnie Cooper’s schools are having a joint field trip to the local museum. Kevin figures this will be a great chance to spend some time together with Winnie, but things don’t turn out as he planned.

 

Fuck Ben Stein. This time the girlfriend didn’t get into porn, but did marry the US Chairman from Iron Chef. Only got half the episode, so didn’t get to see them break up… or fuck… or both.

 

S06E21+22: Summer+Independence Day, 12 May 1993

After a fight with his dad, Kevin drives off to the summer resort where Winnie is working, to get a job and try to make it on his own. Only Winnie does not seem all that happy to see him.

+

After catching Winnie kissing another guy and losing all his money and his car in a poker game, Kevin decides to head back home to his parents.

 

Fuck you Giovanni Ribisi? Looks like they either gave Savage the time to act, or he learned how. Doesn’t seem like they learned how to make the show look good.

 

I will say, Kevin’s Mom, hotter than I remembered.

 

Remember when Danica MacKeller tramped it up and was doing all those lad mag covers? Guess it didn’t get her a second go around. Hard to believe most people found it shocking that she went to university…for math… and did well.

 

Paul didn’t go to Harvard, he became Marilyn Manson. I thought they killed the father though…oh, just in voice over.

 

I’m thinking I didn’t watch much Wonder Years. Not having boomer parents, they never were really down with boomer nostalgia, I wasn’t watching prime time at the time, and in syndication there were always 15 episode of MASH I could watch.

Wikipedia Plot

Bounty hunter Jack Walsh is enlisted by bail bondsman Eddie Moscone to bring accountant Jonathan “The Duke” Mardukas back to Los Angeles. The accountant had embezzled $15 million from Chicago mob boss Jimmy Serrano before skipping on the $450,000 bail Moscone had posted for him. Walsh must bring Mardukas back within five days, or Moscone defaults. Moscone says the job is easy, a “midnight run,” but Walsh demands $100,000. Walsh is then approached by FBI Agent Alonzo Mosely, who wants Mardukas to be a witness against Serrano and orders Walsh to keep away from Mardukas. Walsh takes no notice of this and instead steals Mosely’s ID, which he uses to pass himself off as an FBI agent along his journey. Serrano’s henchmen Tony and Joey offer Walsh $1 million to turn Mardukas over to them, but he turns them down.

 

Walsh captures Mardukas in New York City and calls Moscone from the airport, not knowing that Moscone’s line is tapped by the FBI and that his assistant Jerry is secretly tipping off Serrano’s men. However, Mardukas fakes a panic attack on the plane, forcing the two men to travel via train. When Walsh and Mardukas fail to show up in Los Angeles on time, Moscone brings in rival bounty hunter Marvin Dorfler to find them. Dorfler tracks them to the train and attempts to take The Duke from Walsh, but Walsh gets the drop on him and leaves the train. However, he discovers when he attempts to purchase bus tickets with a credit card that Dorfler canceled the card.

 

Without funds, he is forced to rely on other means to get across the country, including stealing cars, borrowing his ex-wife’s car in Chicago, and hitchhiking. Meanwhile, word of the skirmish on the train reaches Mosely’s ears and he leads a task force to find Walsh and Mardukas.

 

Walsh eventually reveals that, 10 years before, he was an undercover officer in Chicago trying to get close to a drug dealer who had almost the entire police force on his payroll. Eventually, just as Jack was going to bust the dealer, he had heroin planted in his house by corrupt cops. In order to avoid either going to prison or working for the dealer, Walsh resigned from the force, left Chicago and became a bounty hunter, while his wife divorced him and married a corrupt lieutenant. Since then, however, Walsh has clung to the vain hope that he will one day be reunited with his ex-wife. Later, Mardukas learns that the drug dealer was Serrano.

 

In Arizona, Dorfler takes Mardukas away from Walsh, who is found by Mosely. While arguing with Moscone over the phone, Walsh realizes that Dorfler intends to turn Mardukas over to Serrano for $2 million. However, Dorfler accidentally reveals to Serrano’s men where he is keeping Mardukas and is knocked unconscious by Serrano’s men, who go after Mardukas themselves.

 

Walsh calls Serrano’s men and bluffs that he has computer disks created by Mardukas with enough information to put Serrano away, but promises to hand the disks over if Serrano returns Mardukas to him unharmed. Jack meets up with Serrano while wearing a wire and being watched by the FBI. Dorfler spots Mardukas and interrupts the exchange, unknowingly disabling the wire. After Serrano takes the disks, the FBI closes in, arresting Serrano and his henchmen.

 

Mosely turns Mardukas over to Walsh with enough time to return him to Los Angeles by the deadline. However, Walsh realizes that he cannot bring himself to send Mardukas to prison, and lets him go. Before parting, Walsh gives Mardukas a watch that his wife gave him before their marriage, symbolizing he has finally let go of her. In return, Mardukas gives Walsh $300,000 in a money belt he had been hiding. Walsh flags down a taxi and asks the driver if he has change for a $1,000 bill, but the taxi drives away, so he heads home on foot.
