Wrestling spoof

BASHER MALONE was the final ever episode of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE and the best thing I can say about it is that it isn't the worst. It's a comic story that tells of a fan favourite wrestler who finds himself against an opponent from hell - literally! Said wrestler is a lovable Roddy Piper type who finds his strength from eating his momma's cookies, but he meets a nefarious promoter who decides to conjure up a demonic opponent to test his mettle.

This is a broad comedy played for laughs, clearly paying homage to the then popular sport of wrestling. The acting is poor and the script just manages to reach about average, but it's clear to anyone watching that the producers were well short of ideas so it's a blessing that the series ended at this point.
