WOW, some of that is great company!

The Thread has been quiet lately, but I suppose that is because we are running out of fresh ideas. It appears that Hollywod is MAKING more crap than ever!!

Yes.

A five year span between these two. Both Made for TV. Interesting. wink

They would have come in that period right before Shatner's magnum opus "Big Bad Mama" and just after "Kingdom of The Spiders". Of course he would have been toiling away on "Barbary Coast" in that period for a little while as well. Poor guy.

big grin

Thank goodness for T J Hooker and Star Trek!

Gotta love the Shat man.

...and in that order, right?

Those "telefilms" are the kind of fare one might find at a dollar store bin packaged in a cardboard longbox, with both movies crammed onto one disc. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
