Watch Footage From the 'Hey Dude' Reunion You Never Knew You Were Craving (Video)

For those of you who remember the Nickelodeon show "Hey Dude," with its cheesy, computer-generated title card and cast of fresh faced camp counselors who toiled in a dude ranch, have we got some nostalgia-drenched news for you: the cast has reunited! And they're all significantly older!

The show, which ran from 1989 to 1991 and can currently be streamed on Amazon Prime, starred David Brisbin, Kelly Brown, Jonathan Galkin, Debra Kalman and Christine Taylor, all of whom reunited for what appears to be the purposes of some kind of Nickelodeon '90s throwback thing (and, of course, just to celebrate its 25th anniversary). One thing from the brief clip is very clear: Christine Taylor's consistent career (not to mention her marriage to Ben Sitller) has afforded her a much better skincare regiment/workout routine.

Watch the video, think about all those questionable hairstyles and sing along with us: "It's a

Get Ready for Atx Television Festival 2014

Austin television fans have been gearing up for the 3rd annual Atx Television Festival (or as the festival likes to say, "Season 3"), running from Thursday, June 5 to Sunday, June 8 in downtown Austin. The relatively new festival features a handful of current television shows as well as a few retrospectives and panels that focus on the behind-the-scenes world of TV. Venues include Alamo Drafthouse Ritz and Stateside at the Paramount.

The full lineup was recently released, and Nineties kids will once again rejoice at the fact that another childhood favorite is coming to Atx. A cast and crew reunion of Hey Dude! is one of the headliners, bringing fan favorites such as Christine Taylor and David Brisbin to town. That's not the only reunion the fest has planned, though. Everwood and Roswell cast members are also coming together again to discuss what it was like to work on these popular shows.

Hey, You Made It!

Hey, You Made It!
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences brings you the Oscars (yep, that's why they're called Academy Awards), and on Friday, the organization announced that it was prepared to invite 176 new folks to its fold.

In a list posted on its website, the Academy deemed Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Terrence Malick, Jonah Hill, Berenice Bejo, Jessica Chastain, Octavia Spencer and a host of other film luminaries worthy of inclusion in its nearly 6,000-member army.

The Academy has drawn the ire of critics who bemoan its overwhelmingly male, white population. A Los Angeles Times investigation found that of all Academy members, 94 percent are Caucasian and 77 percent are male. A mere 2 percent are black, with Latinos constituting an even smaller portion. Only 14 percent of members are under the age of 50.

Full members of the Academy select and vote on Oscars nominees. The organization was started in 1927 and is now governed by a 43-person board.

Hey Dude Season Two DVD Review

It’s another season of everyone’s favorite teenage ranchers, and though I know you thought it couldn’t get better, Hey Dude is back for more with a Season 2 release.

As I said in my review of the Season 1 release (and I went over the show pretty thoroughly, and won’t overly retread here), this is a show that makes you long for better demographically-targeted work today. While there isn’t anything about Hey Dude that exactly comes through as the next greatest thing, it’s fun and funny programming that the right age-group enjoys immensely, and remains in the category of utterly harmless as well.

By the time we get to the second season, we’re pretty comfortable with the characters, and the episodes reflect the fact. While the dynamics stay somewhat open in certain respects, we’re solidly in Ted is Ted country here. We’ve moved

Oskar Eustis on Discovering a New Talent

  • Backstage
It must have been the fall of 1985. I was living in San Francisco, running the Eureka Theatre, and visiting New York. As always, I was trying to cram in as much theater as I could, and I was frustrated because I had arrived late at the Public Theater for some show (I don't remember which one) with an 8 o'clock curtain. There was a no-late-seating policy, and I thought I was out of luck."Actually," said my friend David Brisbin, "this is a great opportunity. Remember that kid, the Nyu student I've been telling you about? He's got a show going up tonight in Chelsea—and it's an 8:30 curtain."I grumbled all the way to 23rd Street, disgruntled at wasting one of my precious nights in New York on a play by a student writer-director. We arrived, sat down, and within half an hour I knew I was at a life-changing.

Hey Dude and Stick Stickly Join The 90′s Are All That Line-Up Which is Moving to Primetime on TeenNick

Back in March we learned that a handful of programming from the 90's would make its way to late night time slots on TeenNick for a great block of shows called The 90's Are All That. Originally starting with All That, Kenan & Kel, Doug and Clarissa Explains It All, the line-up has since expanded to include shows like Hey Arnold! and Rugrats. Now another Nickelodeon classic is joining the ranks as EW has word that Hey Dude is saddling up for some reruns. If this just didn't hit during your childhood or you just didn't have Nickelodeon as a kid, the series, which aired from 1989-1991, followed a wacky group of teenagers working at the Bar None western dude ranch and starred David Brisbin (Mr. Ernst), David Lascher (Ted), Christine Taylor (Melody), Kelly Brown (Brad), and Joe Torres (Danny). Not only is Hey Dude coming around, but the entire programming

'Hey Dude' returns to TeenNick, '90s block moves to primetime -- Exclusive
TeenNick’s ’90s block is just too crazy popular to air at midnight, so the cable net has decided to move it where even more 20-somethings can appreciate a good rerun when they see one.

That’s not all: Hey Dude will now have a much-coveted spot in the lineup, alongside All That, Kenan & Kel and Doug. And Stick Stickly — aka the famous popsicle stick from the ’90s — will

Hey Dude: Season 1 DVD Review

Unbelievably, Hey Dude, Nickelodeon's teen-focused, dude ranch extravaganza, started airing in 1989. That isn't unbelievable because of how long ago it was, but because I find it hard to imagine I was actually that old when it came out.

The misadventures of the Bar None Ranch was the first original, live-action program on the network. Though it didn't last an especially long time in first runs, it lived on for quite a while on the network, and paved the way for more original shows by the network that soon followed - Welcome Freshmen, Clarissa Explains It All, Salute Your Shorts, Doug, Rugrats, and many others.

Thus, odd as it may sound, the show has its place in TV history, and is pretty legitimately the forefather of the teen market of shows now ruled by such treasures as iCarly.

The show opened with the return to summer employment at the ranch, with
