If you’re a fan of action movies, particularly those that went direct to video in the 1990′s, you might know the name Maria Ford. A recurring co-star of Don “The Dragon” Wilson (she appeared alongside Wilson in four of his films, including Futurekick, Ring of Fire 1 & 2 and Night Hunter), Ford was also a staple performer in many of Roger Corman’s Dtv efforts in the same decade…
However for everyone who isn’t a hardcore action movie nerd like myself (or indeed if you didn’t grow vicariously through VHS rental during the decade), Maria Ford is probably a name you won’t recognise, but a face you will. With over 50 credits to her name, she’s appeared everything from sleazy skin flicks such as The Key to Sex to family-friendly comedies such as Addams Family Reunion and Beethoven’s 5th…
These are 10 of her best films:

The sitcom revolves around Baio's character, an actor who starred as "America's favorite dad" on television for a decade and is now a stay-at-home dad. The show also features the talents of Alanna Ubach and Mark Curry and, interestingly enough, is being shot on the old Happy Days sound stage.
Here's the press release from Nick at Nite:
Nick at Nite Premieres Scott Baio Comedy, "See Dad Run," on Saturday, October 6
Children’s network Nickelodeon has taken second place to its television rival, Disney Channel. Gone are the days when slime ruled supreme and Snick was the ultimate in tween entertainment. Now, Nickelodeon has decided to fight back with its new programming plan for 2013 and beyond. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Nick announced that they have greenlighted a number of series and pilots from the creative teams behind “Frasier,” “Reba,” “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “iCarly” and “Victorious.” This fall, the network will launch “See Dad Run,” a live-action comedy starring Scott Baio (“Happy Days,” “Charles in Charge”) and the animated series “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” The following shows are under current production, according [ Read More ] »
It was only a matter of time: Jimmy Fallon will release a new album full of the parodies he and such guests as Justin Timberlake, Dave Matthews, and Bruce Springsteen have made famous on NBC's “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” Out June 12, “Blow Your Pants Off” features no stand-up routines, just Fallon's own impressions on such tunes as “Tebowie” and “Bob Dylan Sings ‘Charles in Charge’,” as well as viral hits like his and Timberlake’s “History of Rap,” and “Balls In Your Mouth” featuring Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, according to Rolling Stone.

I can’t get enough of making fun of manic pixie dream girls. This spoof is pretty awesome.
Speaking of things I can’t get enough of: cats. In space.
Why anyone listens to Kirk Cameron, I don’t know. The dude just spouts hatred and bile. But hey, this video shows the not hot chick from Charles in Charge, and she looks great! There’s hope for all of us.

It’s a family affair on ‘Chapter 19’ this week as Kenny and conman/father Eddie are reunited with Mother Powers, guest start Lily Tomlin. Both have ulterior motives though, Kenny wanting to unload Toby on her and Eddie just simply wants to rob her. Feel the love.
As the episode begins we see how Kenny’s mom, Tammy, is as deluded as Kenny is about his fame and greatness when she punches a rival bowler square in the face for badmouthing him.

There are few things in this world that rival my love of horror cinema, but one of them is most definitely the sub-genre known as the “80′s comedy”. There’s something really special about almost all of the comedies (and hell even the dramas) of that era. Even the not so good ones at the very least had heart. And one film that I hold in the highest possible regard is Rod Daniel’s 1985 feature film debut Teen Wolf starring (at the time) TV sensation Michael J. Fox. Although shot before Back To The Future, the movie didn’t get a proper release until after that flick was huge at the box office.
