The Video Vault of Mora Tau 11/28/12!

Continuing a look back at fun movie hosts - here are three more that were - in the last ten or fifteen years - appearing nationally thanks to cable TV...respectively TBS, Speedvision, and Syuh Fyuh...

Dinner and a Movie with Annabel Gerwich and Paul Gilmartin

On this show, the hosts prepared a meal in their segments going to and coming from commercials - with the recipe displayed and offered up for your own kitchen. They joked around and talked about the movie - and they were pretty fun.

Lost Drive-In with Bruce Dern

This was a cool way to see car-centric drive-in style flicks, with Bruce Dern offering some stream-of-consciousness hosting segments. Groovy, daddio!

William Shatner's Fright Night

After the original cast Star Trek movies had petered out, but before Boston Legal brought William Shatner back into the public eye - and scored him some Emmy awards - he was taking whatever came his way, like hosting this prepackaged set of a baker's dozen Full Moon movies. Give this to him - even if he was mostly showing up for the paycheck - he fully committed and wasn't afraid to appear goofy - which is one of the many, many reasons I love William Shatner.

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!


  1. I miss these crazy cool hosts. TV is so colorless without them

  2. I never saw the William Shatner hosting before Craig. He is very good at comedy. "That's good B+! And it's good to be positive." LOL I always liked Joe Bob Brigg's drive-in. Would you count MST2K as hosts?

  3. Kick-ass review, Craig. I knew you would like it :-)
