Storyline

Marlo Higgens is a lowly computer expert banished to a sub-basement office by his vindictive boss. However, his life after hours is lively as each closing time means he enters a secret room with his secretly built artificially intelligent computer called the Magic Movie Machine. Together, Marlo and his machine explore and joke around about various topics primarily with the vast collection of video files of various archival footage along with viewer correspondence.

I LOVED this show as a kid; My sister and I watched it faithfully each Saturday morning.
25 August 2001 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

This show was great! The premise was that Marlo, a programmer at the "L. Dullo Computer Company" (Do ya think that was a poke at big, corporate IBM-types, or what?) having fallen from grace, is "banished to the basement by [his] boss, the legendary Mr. Leo Dullo."

There, in the basement, he would slave by day, but by night he would build and program the Magic Movie Machine a kind of computerized version of "Picture Picture" (of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood) with a personality.

The show had lots of interesting film clips focused on the fun, the odd, and the arcane. There were also occasional guests --usually on location-- I remember Dorothy Hamil in particular.

A really fun show. I'd like to see it in reruns.
