What Old NBC Shows Might The Peacock Consider Next?

25 October 2013 12:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With a remake of “Murder, She Wrote” on tap and a “Remington Steele” re-do reportedly in the works, NBC may want to consider switching its slogan from “More Colorful” to “Everything Old Is New Again.”

The Peacock in recent years has exhibited a jones for dusting off old TV chestnuts and trying to breathe new life into them. The record thus far has not been that stellar, as this season’s now–cancelled “Ironside” can attest, alongside efforts such as 2007’s “Bionic Woman,” 2008’s “Knight Rider,” or 2012’s “Mockingbird Lane” special (a revamp of “The Munsters”). NBC recently tried to resuscitate “The Rockford Files,”but the pilot never got picked up for a series.

‘Grindhouse 5: Dr. Alien’ Review

7 April 2013 4:20 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Billy Jacoby, Judy Landers, Troy Donahue, Olivia Barash, Stuart Fratkin, Raymond O’Connor, Bobby Jacoby | Written by Kenneth J. Hall | Directed by David DeCoteau

Yet another film from my youth and one that I distinctly remember from the pages of The Dark Side magazine (back in my pre-internet days when I used to buy horror mags religiously), Dr. Alien is a film that, despite my knowledge of it, I have yet to see. So this new DVD from 88 Films is a welcome addition to my ever-growing B-movie library.

After Ms. Xenobia takes over Dr. Ackerman’s science class following an “incident” the puts Ackerman in the hospital, she persuades a nerdish Wesley Littlejohn to participate in some vitamin research she and her assistant Drax are conducting.
