This Show Made THIS "Loser Who Stayed Home Most Weekends'" Weekend!
30 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show, which left you COMPLETELY clueless as to what to expect each Friday and/or Saturday night, other than knowing you were going to see some kinda bizarre or otherwise unusual movie, some good pre- AND post- early ('79 or '80 to around '83 or so?) MTV rock/new wave/punk/etc. videos, weird movie shorts, and so much other stuff (rare interviews with bands - one on Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young comes to mind, the Doors, and so on, and on...), etc., etc., etc...

And another good thing about it (I think each "Flight" was either 3 or 4 hours long) was that it repeated itself, first starting at 10 or 11 PM, maybe even midnight in the Central time zone and lasting until daybreak! 6 AM if I'm not mistaken - just the thing for a Night Owl like myself, AND making it possible, if there was another movie that you just HAD to see that was on for a couple of hours, you could watch it and still be able to catch up with what you had missed on the second airing (which seems to have become the norm with a LOT of cable stations today - airing shows back to back, and most of them you wish they wouldn't!).

It was just a perfect show for a Rock loving weirdo like me, or for anybody who wanted to see some weird short films, hear some music, or to get some inside info on the Sex Pistols, David Bowie, or any of a number of bands of various genres backstage - footage that now seems to be something that would be impossible to get a hold of. I wish I had taped every episode (kinda like the way I wish I'd taped every episode of "Beavis & Butthead" when they ORIGINALLY aired, with them commenting on the different music videos they were always watching and "huh-huh-huh-huh-huhing" to all the time, the copies of the old cartoons you can buy today are alright, but you just don't get the whole "B&B Experience without their "Commentary"), because I doubt there's anyway to get copies of it now.

It'd sure be nice if USA still had all the old shows in their entirety, I'd love to see them ALL again.

An overall GREAT TV show and one that I would love to see revived - with no changes - just exactly like it was.
