tv and movies hard for me to remember
written by: admin

Date Written: 11/5/09 Last Updated: 12/12/23

These shows tickle my brain and are very hard to remember.  They are often in my brain for a second before I forget them and struggle to remember them off and on for months or years or, in several cases, decades.  Many are just bad, or embarrassing, but there are a few gems.

The Champions 1968 - 1969 (1 season 30 episodes) tv show where government agents crash land in the Himalayas and are granted super powers by an advanced civilization.

Originally, all I could remember was several people who were given superpowers by a monk in a mountain.  I spent a lot of effort trying to remember and find this one.  The episode I can think of in particular is called The Interrogation.

Student Bodies 1981 First horror spoof.

A very underrated movie.  I recently watched portions of this on youtube and found it hilarious.

Night Gallery: Pamelas voice, Lone survivor, the doll

This is very much subjective, but this episode of the night gallery with the doll was the scariest doll story I can remember and it scared me every time I watched it.  It took a long time to find this episode, because I had been looking for it in the Twilight Zone series.

Amazing Stories: The Doll

Here is another doll episode.  This is more of a valentines day story about a dollmaker that creates a doll to help a man find his love.  link to dolls in television

Christmas Every Day 1987 animated christmas special.  You can see it on Youtube

It is the story of a girl who wishes that every day of the year was Christmas and the amusing consequences that follow.

Time Trax Another bad short lived environmentally based sci-fi tv series.

The Darkroom 1981 Horror tv series that only lasted a few episodes.  see also

passions I have not seen this.

Tomes & Talismans Children's show from the 80's.  Apocalyptic show where kids hide out in an old library and learn how to use the dewidecimal system.  Silly premise that was oddly enjoyable.

Generation X A 1996 made for tv Marvel movie.  Surprisingly not listed as a Marvel movie. youtube

M.A.N.T.I.S. Terrible tv show

The Twilight Zone: The Pool Guy

A man finds himself murdered everyday and can't understand why or know how to stop it.

Guns of Paradise A western drama I remember fondly.  Around 1990 there were a good number of quality western tv shows.

Invincible Billy Zane.  I liked this one as it is the story of a pseudo-demon who repents and turns to the light.  Poorly executed, but interesting concept.

The Gathering Supernatural drama about an amnesiac girl.

Black Mask Jet Li superhero movie.

Population 436 Population of an idyllic town never changes.  Ever.

Shine Jewish piano player

Monstervision tv show that introduces and comments on sci-fi, horror, fantasy movies.

The Questor Tapes As I recall, this is the story of an android that was created as something of a superhuman and meant to guide and assist mankind.  The android is awoken too early and is somewhat flawed.  It is a morally good character.

The Sword and the Sorcerer A classic fantasy movie.  What has stayed with me is the scene where the man rips all of his skin off to reveal the monster within.
