Episode 200–The Weird Al Show

This is it!  The big 2-0-0!  We look back at a great, short-lived show from the late 90s with a great cast of characters and array of guests, which got mishandled by the network during a time when there was a push towards educational and informational television on Saturday mornings.

It's time to release the drone in the newest edition of the It Was a Thing on TV remastered series as we go back to our Christmas 2019 episode covering the Food Network series (Charles Stiles) Mystery Diners.

We cover some of our favorite moments of (Charles Stiles) Mystery Diners including drag queen trivia shows, a grilled cheese eating contest and memorabilia mishaps in a diner.

It's listener request time!  We received a request to cover Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa months ago, and we finally found a spot for it on our schedule.  When a comet lands in the Old West, the end result is anthropomorphic cows.  Enjoy their adventures in this ABC cartoon from the early 90s.

Episode 198–Fall TV Campaigns

The new Fall TV season is here!  We're looking back at some classic Fall TV campaigns from the different networks, from reaching to the stars to insisting that we should all be there.

It's time to fight the frizzies in the newest edition of the It Was a Thing on TV Remastered series. This time we go back to Episode 16 and the Star Wars Holiday Special from 1978 on CBS.

Relive Harvey Korman pouring a drink over a hole in his head, an alien chef with multiple arms, the debut of Boba Fett and whatever the hell Itchy was viewing in his helmet.

Episode 197–Jeopardy! ties

The 38th season of Jeopardy! begins tonight and we felt it appropriate to talk about show rarities over the years.  We discuss various oddball tied games over the years, specifically games where contestants tied at zero or games in which a tiebreaker was used.

Screech, Slater, and Zack have all graduated from Bayside.  What's up next for the recent grads?  College, of course.  They're up to their usual mischief with the occasional familiar face and some new faces.  And most importantly, Bob Golic.

20 years ago this week, a game show scandal broke in the UK, as Major Charles Ingram, his wife, and another contestant collaborated and coughed their way to £1,000,000.  The trio later went to trial over the matter.  Listen to this episode and judge for yourself whether the money was hard earned or hardly earned.

Our second part of an interconnected trilogy of episodes. This edition of the It Was a Thing on TV Remastered series goes back to Episode 15 as we look at CBS' attempt to get in on that sweet Love Boat action with the comedy "Flying High"

Featuring Connie Selleca, Pat Klous and someone who had a great layover with Bobby Sherman according to the commercials for the Star Wars Holiday Special.

With this week being the 20th Anniversary of Aqua Teen Hunger Force as a regular series on Adult Swim, we take a look back at the very first appearance of our favorite trio on Space Ghost: Coast to Coast.

The Aqua Teens looked a lot different when they paid a visit to Space Ghost, Zorak and Moltar. We explain the differences between this and the regular series as the course of classic rock is changed forever in this episode, thanks a lot Space Ghost!
