User Reviews

CINEMA INSOMNIA hits the spot
23 March 2008 | by monsterjoshSee all my reviews

Mr. Lobo fills the void left with the departure of Bob Wilkins and John Stanley from the late- night Bay Area CREATURE FEATURES show of the 1970s. Lots of time and talent go into the production, and it shows--Mr. Lobo's brand of humor is (almost) always a gas. Since the show is (almost) always commercial-free it can be a challenge to get in a bathroom break; we appreciate his generous inclusion of plenty of old movie trailers of many much-loved B-films during intermission time.

Thank you, Mr. Lobo, for continuing to carry the torch, and Kudos to PBS television in San Jose for carrying the show on Saturday nights!
