Playboy is hoping it can do for old porn what Time Warner’s Turner Classic Movies does for the best cinema of yesteryear.

The adult-entertainment company’s premium cable outlet, Playboy TV, will on Saturday night start a series called “Groundbreakers,” which will feature film director John Waters presenting and commenting upon some of the porn industry’s earliest commercial film successes.

“Porn classics are another extreme element of show business,” Waters said in an interview. Playboy reached out to him to host the series, and he was immediately interested, he said, having a strong interest in the history of cult cinema. “It’s an educational opportunity. You learn about the shows that you masturbated to for the first time.”

Others have tested the format. Showtime enlisted comedian Dave Attell to make fun of clips from old porn movies as part of “Dave’s Old Porn,” and he is often

"Pretty Little Liars" Recap 208: "Not My Muscle Cream, You Bitch!"

Hey there, Pookie Bears. Please forgive me for the brevity of this week’s recap. One of my puppies is dealing with some medical issues that require twice-a-day vet visits and on-the-hour wrestling matches in which I am obligated to shove giant pills down her throat.

Previously on Pretty Little Liars, Jason’s hair Medusa-ed Aria while Jason’s eyes drilled a literal hole in her skull; Toby unearthed an old hockey stick that reduced Spencer to the kind of hysterical absolutism heretofore reserved for relentlessly accusing Toby and Ian, respectively, of murdering Allison; Hanna hated her dad for her mom, then forgave him for both of them; and "A" used one hand to get Emily tangled up in a college admission’s scam, and another hand to Poison Her To Death.
