First off, I am not a fan of this show. But I downloaded this episode today because I calculated correctly, after a visit to old trusty friend Wikipedia, that "Billionaire Body Club" had to be that episode on which I had inadvertently seen something that drew my attention donkey-years (well, very old donkeys) ago. The pretty girl on the operating table, which I today learned was Kim Johnston Ulrich of NIGHTINGALES fame. That shot of her vulnerable bare feet haunted me for decades. I am still relatively new on the Internet, and I really didn't think this show would be on the Internet. But Wikipedia showed me the episode list, and it all sounded so out of my way except kinky ol' "Billionaire Body Club". It then took more than 150 000 kBs to download, but speed was great*, and on second try, at just more than 100 kBs per second, I was there, but my heart sank when I heard that vampire bit, it didn't sound like that episode at all. Then again, I never actually saw it. Just the mad scientist bit. Then after struggling on, yeah, baby! Pretty girl! And an operating table! Bare legs. Those vulnerable feet! This was it!
Just to see if I remembered correctly. But aside from the thrill, I absolutely loathe this. Sam Jones looks like an over-fed lizard, and that Australian bloke gives me the creeps. Nobody passes comment on being followed by a truck with pretensions of being a helicopter?????
There is no involvement with the characters. They are weaker than weak. Oh, I loved Kim as Melissa, and I hadn't even identified her yet as one of the nurses from NIGHTINGALES, but this cardboard hero, in the unlikely presentation of Sam Jones... Hell, TV was bad during the Eighties, huh? That silly gunk like this could masquerade as entertainment... Gee, I'm not knocking the concept. A big guy in a big truck with pretensions of being an attack helicopter, bring it on! But that overstuffed, thick-faced lout that got the lead and that Aussie bloke I wouldn't want to step on, really!
And I'm reviewing this just to show I'm not always easy just because of the pretty skirt in the film. Really, people, this is bad, but fortunately, I got to see what I wanted. And now I know that the feet belonged to Kim Johnston Ulrich.
Really, really stupid, because of the male lead being a big dork, and his side-kick being a junior dork. A steroid-fed hunk of talentlessness, and a little creep with a smarmy accent, I wonder how many little boys grew up crooked with such role models?
*Gee, waffling on like a Grand Prix winner, huh? I'm officially a computer nerd now, after about 19 months on the Net, armed only with a BlackBerry
Foot fetishist's corner: Two movies that have no reason for existence other than fleeting pretty bare feet: ROCK AND ROLL HIGH SCHOOL, which is dreck of the highest order, and MITCHELL, and old action movie with a surprisingly kinky love scene. Be warned that Corey Feldman is about of the same status as a locust, so that ROCK AND ROLL thing is best avoided even if you l-u-r-v-e pretty, cute girls' feet.
