I remember staying up on night and watching an episode of this hammy american TV show based on the quite-good action film starring Jean Claude Van Damme.
Unfortunately I didn't get to see the rest of the series, I don't know if it was unintentional or not, but the episode I saw certainly seemed to be funny.
Firstly you've got the hero with pearly white teeth...who travels back in time, and unlike JCVD doesn't do any martial arts.
Anyway, the episode I saw had this guy with a black leather coat on go back in time to Hitler and give him an IBM computer with his Gestapo-cum-scientists going "what is this....i...b...m?" I laughed out loud, mainly because I knew that IBM were around that time...but mainly because it just looked so damned silly.
The concept of going back in time to help the nazis is an intresting quirk, however it just seemed to be so silly and no forefought had been spared. Why didn't the Nazis' figure out he was neo-American when they saw him in Jeans and white sneakers.
The hero travels to the future (for some reason) only to be met by nazis in the future (future nazis?) and goes back in time to stop the guy in the leather coat (hang on a minute, if the Nazis controlled the time machine - doesn't that mean they control time? - ah to hell with plot!)
Anyway, by the end of this unintentional comedy, the guy in the leather coat can't make any more nukes from his IBM because er - well - someone deleted the file or something. Just as the leather coat guy is explaining his "error" Hitler has him shot right there and then...I nearly p***ed myself laughing by that point.
Its a shame this series ended so soon. It made me cry with laughter and joy so much...when will it be re-ran?
