Somewhere along the journey of growing up in the 80s, Friday the 13th moves went from making us scream with terror to scream with laughter. On this episode of So Bad It’s… we’re joined by fellow Friday aficionado Graham LaMontagne as we track our memories, thoughts and insights and discuss the series and all things Jason Voorhees.
In keeping with the series’ myriad of sequels, this is the first of a two-part episode. So grab your hockey mask or burlap sack and meet us up at Camp Crystal Lake with Dudley, Corey Feldman, Crispin Glover, Alice, Kris and the rest of the gang.
The passing of Adam West on June 9 was felt by generations. Whether you knew him as Mayor Adam West from Family Guy, or for the role that came to define him, Batman from the 1960s TV show, there was no mistaking that butterscotch smooth voice. The world is a little less entertaining now that he’s gone.
On this episode of So Bad It’s…we talk about Adam West and the 1960s Batman television show, including listing our favorite Pow graphics, some of which are shown above. They may or may not be real. Jon then relates his fond memories of Batgirl Yvonne Craig. Also, Broadway Joe Namath stops by and gives us an idea for a future episode, because of course he does. Go long!
What would it be like to entertain the stormtroopers with a stand up gig on the Death Star? You know the Empire has its own galactic version of the USO and working on the Death Star can’t be the most exciting job in the world. Sure, you get to blow up occasional planets and transfer bad hombres to the detention block, but walking those long, sparse hallways gets tedious.
On this episode of So Bad It’s…we talk through what a stand up comic might go through on the galaxy’s ultimate weapon. And in a future episode where we might showcase a 15-minute Star Wars stand-up act, if we can actually come up with the material. Worst case, we just X-Wing it.
There were questions. There were answers. There were more questions. Therefore, there is a Part 2. In this episode, we pick up where we left off in Part 1, with Pete throwing Jon random questions which lead to equally random answers. It starts with the Commodore 64 and goes from there. Buckle up and press play.
