In reply to RevRico :

Since we’re recommending bad movies try Kentucky Fried Movie too.

Bad Taste is another one as well.

What is uhf?

Ultra High Frequency.  As opposed to Very High Frequency.  

What we used to have to do to get ABC,CBS, and NBC vs most of the PBS broadcasters.  Back when you would only get 4 channels in most markets, all over the airwaves.

Would it be fair to call it the AM radio of the TV spectrum? Not from a technical standpoint, of course, but in terms of how it relates to VHF content?

I think that UHF, the medium not the movie, would be better understood and the podcasts of their day. Not that there aren't fantastic podcasts out there, but you have to surf through a lot of carp to get to the good stuff.

Admit it: You started checking every penny you came into contact with to see if it was a double die Denver mint penny after watching this.

Nice. I have this movie on VHS which my wife has been trying to throw away for years.

For Christmas one year, my mom probably spent way too much money for a copy of the movie to gift to me.  It was long out of print at that point, so the only way to get one was to either luck out at Goodwill, or pay through the nose at a flea market.

 

(Another year she gifted me an unopened "A Night at the Opera" LP.  I don't think I ever opened it.  No, it wasn't warped from the plastic shrinking, either)

Put down your remote control, throw out the TV Guide

Put away your jacket, there's no need to go outside

(Don't you know that) We control the horizontal

We control the vertical too

We gonna make a couch potato outta you  (That's what we're goin' to do)

 

 

Thanks to this thread this song is stuck in my head.

Bonus:  How many '80s music videos can you identify being referenced?
