Electra Woman and Dyna Girl

Hopefully you are familiar with the unaired pilot for a remake of the Krofft Super Show's Electra Woman and Dyna Girl -- one of the filler shows that was not quite as good as Land of the Lost or Sigmund the Sea Monster. If you haven't watched this, you are in for a rare treat. Stick with it until you get to the alcoholic Electra Woman living in a trailer park. Just let the magic wash over you...

...because that's the point at which you realize that this is Markie Post from Night Court in her breakout dramatic role!

It's basically an unused flashback scene from the Watchmen movie, right?

And you're thinking, wow, they made some shitty tv in 1985 (with a $100 budget.). Nope. That was made in 2001.

So then this happened. Yup, they're taking another swing at this one. They're gonna put a shine on this turd or die trying! We've seen how the Kroffts do "grim and gritty" -- so now we're going to get to see how they do lesbians!

Still, even the 2001 version looks way better than Arrow.

    Oh man, I remember the original show from my childhood. It wasn't good at all, from what I remembered (I was always hoping for Land of the Lost). This is just....painful, so far (6 minutes in)! :p

      I remember that this was a show that I watched in my childhood. I can't honestly say that I remember anything about the show itself.

    That's Hannah "Harto" Hart from My Drunk Kitchen! https://www.youtube.com/user/MyHarto Best show to watch and cook, right before Drunk History.

  4. Reminds me of the Ghostbusters trailer.

    Thrilled to notice that it was filmed in Vancouver, Hollywood's backlot paradise. That's the PNE in the title shots, and the kid is hanging from the infamous Ferris Wheel O'Death in Playland.

    Unable to follow instructions. Dick caught in Victrola. Please advise; I don't think I can keep up at 78RPM for much longer.

    Aren't Sid and Marty dead? Didn't they get eaten by H.R. Pufenstuf, or something? Wait, they're zombies, right?

    • MattyJ says:

      Nope. Both still alive and kicking.

      In other news, Beverly Cleary will be 100 next week.

    Sid & Marty shows always had awesome music, and no exception here. Two Rubinoos songs - "Must Be A Word" in the 2nd scene at the reunion registration and "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend" later, tho brief. And near the end, the insanely great Nerk Twins song "Either Way." 1/2 of the Nerk Twins was Jeff Murphy of Shoes.
