Invitation To Hell (1984)
It was a film better tolerated in the present but still a victim of its limitations.
There are golden nuggets:
Wes Craven kept it tight. The spacesuit caper and some action sequences spit art
Soleil Moon Frye does a spot-on imitation of Golem, before his time
La Lucci is a playful and committed demonic force. Tacky with hilarity, bitchiness and nerve
Robert Urich was pretty, in charge and in demand.
Gidget's Summer Reunion (1985)
Little girl feminist revamp. They don't exhibit likeness to any of the original characters but nostalgia is intact. Men prevailed short shorts, everyone oozed good health and greater hair and the environment exuded flexibility. 27-Feb-2019
25,0000 Pyramid, The (1974-1991)
Shelley Smith was a gorgeous brain and the vampire was condescending. 17-Sep-2018
It's a documentation of history. I am awe-struck by how quick witted and intelligent we once were. 09-Aug-2018
Burning Bed, The (1984)
A guideline for women on how impossible it seems for a man to cork violent rage. An artistic awakening for Farrah. 18-Jun-2018
A Very Brady Christmas (1988)
The actors get to spoof their own and nobody owns "so bad, it's good" like the Bradys. 26-Dec-2017
It relied on the agreeableness of an adorable moppet. It was blind to color, height, age and privilege. The surprise was the weighty themes the show stockpiled onto the shoulder of its child character and the many hands slapping each other to ride on his success. There are moments when the family starts to mesh and affection becomes inherent but then hand slaps are instituted again and the family dynamic is fully separated by series end as Webster is turned into a bit player. 24-Jul-2017
Endearing wickedness, courtesy of top notch cast and writers. 21-Jul-2017
I'll have a drink with them. 21-Jul-2017
Seinfeld (1989 - 1998)
It fell off my top list because it eschewed a lack of humanity in sitcom that spilled into everyday life. 29-Jun-2017
I rewatched all the seasons except the first one because its irrelevant. The second season is not so great either. There are two and half seasons of greatness and then it coasts and tires. Waiting for something funny and smart to arise again becomes insufferable. Larry David wrote the worst "fuck you" finale ever but who is it directed to? The audience, production or the cast? That is the question. 19-Sep-2015
Simpsons, The (1989-)
Bright, endearing and colorful sabotaged by no end. 15-Feb-2017
Mostly Jessica Tate. 21-Jul-2017
A few bad last seasons aside, blue collar badness. 21-Jul-2017
Golden Girls, The (1985-1992)
Must-see gaiety. 21-Jul-2017
