Meet Davey, Chad, and P.J., three typical American slackers with a lot of time on their hands, and an affinity for T.V.

Unfortunately for them, they're too cheap to pay for cable, so the only station they can get on their old beat up set and its rabbit ears is Channel 37, the local UHF station that only shows crappy old re-runs.

Fortunately for them, and for us, they are very resilient and have a good sense of humor. As they watch, they provide a running commentary mocking the show, and occasionally put on little skits to add to the fun.

Join the boys as they take on Captain Video and the Magic Clown, attend Ding Dong School, go out on a dragnet with Friday and Smith, and lots more televisual adventures over the coming months. Television this bad never sounded this good.

Swamp Women

Swamp Women was the first movie directed by Roger Corman, back in 1955. It tells the story of a female cop who goes undercover to infiltrate a gang of vicious women jewel thieves. She persuades them to break out of gaol with her in the hope they’ll lead her to a cache of stolen diamonds hidden somewhere in the bayous of Louisiana. It’s an enjoyable romp of an exploitation movie, with lots of fist-fights between girls as they squabble over the loot and a hunky male hostage. Since they’re in a swamp the gals naturally wear incredibly skimpy shorts, as you would if you were trudging through a swamp. Like most of Corman’s movies it looks better than its limited budget would lead you to expect. Most of the film takes place in the swamps and the atmosphere is rather well done. It might be cheap but it doesn’t look amateurish. The acting is what you’d expect in an exploitation B-movie but it’s fun. If you’re a devotee of bad girl movies then this one is an absolute must-see.

The Creature from the Haunted Sea (1961)

Roger Corman’s The Creature from the Haunted Sea is a spoof of monster movies, spy movies and crime movies. It’s a thoroughly enjoyable romp, with one of the silliest monsters you’ll ever see. It’s all highly amusing, and while the acting is terrible it’s absolutely perfect for the type of film it is. It’s set against the background of the Cuban Revolution, with American gangsters trying to steal the gold from the Cuban treasury. Finding themselves on a small boat with a large group of Cuban soldiers the head gangster decides to start killing the soldiers while making it look like they were killed by a sea monster. Naturally a real sea monster just happens to show up. Definitely a movie not to be taken seriously but if you’re in the mood for some rather campy fun then it’s pretty entertaining.

What does everyone think of "Legends!" in Toronto right now?

... a comedy about Big Stars, Big Egos and Big Hair

LEGENDS!, a comedy by Tony Award-winning author James Kirkwood (author of A Chorus Line), centres on two somewhat desperate and waning movie stars, Sylvia - played by Joan Collins - and Leatrice - played by Linda Evans.

Both actresses are courted by an unscrupulous producer to co-star in a Broadway show, despite the fact that they have hated each other for decades. He convinces both ladies to go along by misleading them into believing that they will be starring in the show with Paul Newman. This hilarious set-up provides the background for the full-blown comic confrontation between these two divas and the surprising and riotous resolution, played to the hilt by the two stars that the world will know as "rivals to the death" from the internationally acclaimed television series Dynasty.

You can get a good idea of what it's like with this quick visit with Joan Collins and Linda Evans themselves. Just click here - it only takes 30 seconds.
