Episode 4: SF TV Shows That Flopped
Original Airdate: September 23, 1990
Judy and Keith are joined by the Rift's own Orenthal Hawkins, Andrea Lipinski, and Paula Araya to discuss science fiction television shows that failed to attract audience attention in their initial run.
Plus, Keith reviews Big Numbers by Alan Moore and Bill Sienkiewicz published by Mad Love Limited, the Colm Meaney Watch is slow this week, and the Memorable Moment is from The Empire Strikes Back.
Trivia note: This was the first episode where we upped the stakes by having a number of video clips in a montage. A friend of the show commented that we needed more video variety as we looked like a bunch of talking heads. The montage went too long. You will notice from time to time a voice in the background of the audio. This is John in the control room. On some episodes, for some reason, his direction bled out into the studio and was picked up by the mics.
