Episode 51: Trancers (1984)

Trancers has so much great stuff. Time travel, Honda Elite scooters, Helen Hunt’s elf outfit, the punk version of Jingle Bells, Police Chief McNulty. But we just think something’s missing. And that thing is… one-liners. It looks like a Troma movie but the script is like a TV movie. And what is so bad about the trancers anyway? They are just normal people until Jack Deth comes in and ruins everything. Our most important discovery: Trancers is on Hulu with optional commentary from Elvira. And what a commentary it is. Trancers!

Mighty Morphin Forgotten Failures 23: Frankenstein’s Party

It’s time for the Angel Grove High School Masquerade. Everyone’s in the costume you would expect, except Alpha 5 who is attracting ALL the ladies in his Alpha 5 costume. Rita and Finster spend most of this episode getting the Putties to assemble a giant flying meatball. Meanwhile, Lindsay, Mike, Mike, and Darrill discuss Zack’s sad love life and Robin Hood: Men In Tights. Oh, and today’s monster is… Frankenstein. The Pudgy Pig, the Spit Flower, the Gnarly Gnome, and… Frankenstein. Somehow he doesn’t fit in.

Episode 50: Megaforce (1982)

Many years ago… three people, and some other people, watched a movie called Megaforce. And this, more than any other ridiculous movie, inspired them, and one other person, to create what is now known to many as Forgotten Failures. And now… after 50 full-length episodes of wall-to-wall wackiness… we stand before you, discussing Megaforce.

AND OUR VERDICT IS????? Well it’s no Laser Mission, but it’s fun I guess

Mighty Morphin Forgotten Failures 22: The Spit Flower

In this episode Kimberly and Tommy share a harrowing experience (watching Putties rough up Kimberly’s award-winning miniature parade float), which only deepens their burgeoning romance. We discuss how Angel Grove apparently hosts a nationally televised parade; the increasingly bold behavior of the Putties (appearing INSIDE the Gym and Juice — is nothing safe?), and Finster’s newest monster. a triumph of psycho-sexual imagery.

“Billy is up to his Billy fuckery as usual” – Lindsay

Episode 49: ??????????????? (2013)

As Ep 50 approaches, Lindsay, Darrill and Awesome Mike chose this week’s movie via Random Movie Generator. And we won’t tell you what it is until you listen! Hint: It’s the greatest Danish superhero movie we’ve seen since Russian Terminator? And our greatest dubbed movie since Catman In Boxer’s Blow? And our greatest movie about people sneaking into a house full of weird plants, even better than Habitat? And our greatest movie where the hero gets beaten up by his gym teacher, even better than Habitat? Do you know what it is now? Huh do ya?

Mighty Morphin Festive Failures: Alpha 5’s Magical Xmas

We watched Alpha 5’s Magical Xmas! How is this Christmas special so utterly terrible? It’s like Power Rangers for an audience of four-year-olds in 1890. Marvel as we discuss:

  • Alpha 5 and Zordon’s dreary home life
  • Speculations about Alpha 5’s religious beliefs
  • Alpha 5 selfishly makes Christmas all about himself. What a diva.
  • The Power Rangers are helping Santa? Helping him do what?
  • Zordon kidnaps children with a beam? That is how he cheers up Alpha 5?
  • Alpha 5 has magic powers to make things appear?
  • Can Alpha 5 taste cookies?
  • The children are released from their captivity by walking into a Stargate / Poltergeist mystic fog cloud doorway

And hear MikeD’s award-winning Alpha 5 impression!

Mighty Morphin Forgotten Failures 21: Punks and Cannibalism

Big shakeup in Rita’s management team: Finster may be out of a job because Babboo created this week’s weapon, a potion turning Billy and Kimberly into those most hated of all creatures: Punks. MikeD, MikeR and Darrill were appalled at the depiction of punks, but were intrigued by a glimpse into Zordon’s past as a warrior not stuck in a tube, and terrified by the Terror Toad. He has a laser tongue thing AND an actual tongue! And why does Finster still have that pig in his office?
