Tonight at 9p on Syfy Danny Partridge and Greg Brady, I mean Danny Bonaduce and Barry Williams, stop fighting each other long enough to fight the baddest Bigfoot you have ever seen. Bonaduce plays a radio DJ/concert promoter who is planning a huge ’80s rock concert starring Alice Cooper in the woods, so he has been chopping down the trees to make room for it. Williams is his ex-friend and former singer who is trying to stop the concert. A freak snow storm in Seattle will bring Bigfoot out to the show and he is not happy to be woken up from his sleep. So the legendary creature will be going around killing everyone in his path. Will the former-friends, now rivals be able to stop him or will he kill everyone in the small town? You have to tune into this fun campy movie, that was directed by Bruce Davison, to see what happens to believe it. Be prepared to laugh the hardest you have ever laughed since you watched The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family as a kid.
On that I spoke to your elementary school crushes on a conference call earlier this week and here is what they told me. When asked if it was to get the ’70s stars in the movie Barry Williams said it was easy for him to do it as long as Danny Bonaduce was in it. But he did have one clause, “as long as I can beat him up Iâ€™ll do the movie.” I will give you a little spoiler, he got what he wanted. Now when it comes to the red head, he heard that he was cast in the movie two years before he really was. That part was never explained, but it definitely makes an interesting story.
So what are the two men doing now and where can you hear and see them today. Danny is a morning DJ in Seattle for KZOK 102.5 and you can listen to him online if you are not in Washington. Barry is in Branson, Mo doing a live show called A Brady Lunch with Greg Brady. He described it as “I have the new Brady Bunch kids with me. So they are all…in costume, original choreography. Weâ€™re doing all the music. Itâ€™s multimedia. Itâ€™s, you know, Iâ€™m using support clips and graphics and photos and stories.” So if you are in Branson, it is a must see. When I asked them if there is any chance that they would do a tour together like Debbie Gibson and Tiffany did after Mega Piranha vs Gatoroid, they didn’t count it out they just don’t know what they would do. So if some brilliant promoter could come up with something, they are ready for it and I am ready to see it.
Some Star Wars fans felt the force with Gotye and created a parody video to his chart topping song Somebody I Used to Know. Let’s just say it so freaking brilliant that it would even make Darth Vader crack a smile.
Since I actually know people who camped out for the last three Star Wars movies on Hollywood Blvd, I had to post this for them and all you Star Wars fans.
Here are some other Star Wars tribute videos by Teddie Films:
CBS announced today that they made a mistake by cancelling Unforgettable, so to make it up to the show they are bringing it back for second season next summer. Well they didn’t exactly admit their mistake, but what they Tweeted was “Hey â€ª#Unforgettableâ€¬ fans. It’s official, the series will return to â€ª#CBSâ€¬ for summer 2013.” I am so happy that they didn’t forget about this show because the procedural really found its footing as the season went on. Plus the season finale had a nice twist that would changed everything and now we get to see it play out.
It looks like thanks to success of shows like Rookie Blue and several of the cable channel hits like Dallas, Suits, Anger Management and so on that the networks are wiling to air scripted shows in the summer. I don’t have a problem with that because at least it gives something to watch when it is too hot to go outside.
Howie Mandel was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and he told the ABC late night host that he video taped his son after he came out of Propofol. Not only did he record his son admitting some embarrassing things about both of them, he allowed Alex to post it on YouTube. The poor kid hasn’t had a date in five years, telling the world wide web he likes to look at butts might not help get one anytime soon. Or maybe it will.
BTW Howie’s interview on JKL was so funny, that you have to watch the whole thing. I love the part where he talks about the theme planning for his youngest daughter’s Bar Mitvah’s. It was the most ingenious idea I have ever heard of for the Jewish ceremony.
