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?

Episode 44: Dudes (1987)

Since childhood MikeR has yearned to watch Dudes. From defender of punks Penelope Spheeris, it stars Jon Cryer as a punk dressed like a cowboy and the guy who played Jay Leno in The Night Shift as a punk dressed like a Native American. A road-trip comedy, a revenge thriller, a showcase for Daredelvis, and a hallucinatory Western – can it pull off all those things? Well it has great music at least.

Episode 40: Tuff Turf (1985)

Special guest Spencer from the Tune In Tonight podcast brings us Tuff Turf, in which James Spader stars in ten 80s movies at once. Morgan Hiller is a rebel. A loner. A man apart. A jokester. But troubled. A preppie who talks like a dad. In a leather jacket. On a Schwinn. And he’s about to become a hero. By being marginally rebellious. And killing people who kill dads. Featuring a great 80s soundtrack, Kim Richards as the rebellious babe, and Robert Downey Jr. as the wild card!
