Movie Meltdown: Fans of the Land of the Lost
Movie Meltdown – Fans of the Land of the Lost
This episode we’re coming to you “live” from WonderFest as we’re joined by our guest co-host Bill, who among many things is a “Land of the Lost” aficionado. Plus we also talk with one of the stars of “Land of the Lost” – Wesley Eure. And in addition to discussing running from dinosaurs, we also go into some of his movies like “The Toolbox Murders”, “Jennifer” and “C.H.O.M.P.S.”. Not to mention a special guest appearance from Holly herself – Kathy Coleman!
And while we cover the potential disadvantages of wearing a pith helmet, we also delve into… Star Trek, Riverdale, The Orville, Idiocracy, Don’t Look Up, G.I. Joe, board games, Days of Our Lives, we all sat on a dinosaur, Psycho Goreman, NBA players, Dinah Shore, melding film and video tape, buying way too many toys, starting your own cult, becoming a cowboy, The Tempest, it took me about two weeks to get out of the character, Star Wars, the boa was so big, a William Castle experience, you forgot to mention that Frankenstein had a cape, moon spinners or a periscope, being at the drive-in, every day for nine months, Carrie with snakes, expensive spaghetti, crushing on Valerie Bertinelli, Mississippi, hobo booze, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, reruns, struggles and strifes, Luke Perry, collecting toys, so the cast hated me, Tales from the Crypt, playing an oak tree, the dialect of the immigrants, they called the Disney people in, robot dogs and Crocs are the end of days.
“I had one scene where I had snakes wrapped around my head.”
