Silk Stalkings

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Silk Stalkings was a trashy detective drama from the early 90′s. Think Miami Vice with more boobs, except that they couldn’t show boobs because it aired on the USA network.

The show was basically soft-core porn for people who couldn’t afford “Skinamax”, and didn’t have a time machine to go watch Baywatch.

Silk Stalkings was chock full of cheesy inuendos, for instance:

Sammy, I’m impressed. I didn’t know you followed baseball. I thought golf was your only sport.

And regardless of whether they were naked or wearing a power suit with shoulder pads, the women of Silk Stalkings were always smoking Virginia Slims.

Sister, Sister

Sister, Sister was huge in the mid 90′s. It was about two identical twins with less-than identical personalities.

More importantly, the Sister, Sister theme song was off the hook.

The American Gladiators

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

I could care less about that new American Gladiators show, the original American Gladiators are definitely up to 88 in the coolest way possible. I used to love this show when I was a kid, it was so bad ass with the jousting and the human cannonball. But I think my favorite event was the one where they had a big network of hanging rings and you had to monkeybar along and throw the other person off. Check it out

The American Gladiators were definitely part of that unknowing 80′s homo-eroticism with Nitro the “arrogant dickhead” and Malibu the “surfer dude” (top and bottom ;) ).

Check out the intro

But the best is where Nitro ended up: confessing his steroids in his memoirs. It’s absolutely priceless, he talks about his shrinking penis and growing man-boobs: “Breast-chesticles is what they’re called on the street. Gynecomastia is the scientific name.” (From `Gladiator: A True Story of ‘Roids, Rage and Redemption`)
