  • If you google “Siskel and Ebert data for [10/81, 9/82]” you’ll find that someone made a post on Usenet on September 21, 1982 summarizing all of Siskel and Ebert’s up and down votes for the most recent season of their show. This includes 20 movies which appear to be from “lost episodes” that we don’t have videos of. Here are those movies and their votes. The date shown is the release date of the movie as listed on Wikipedia. The Usenet post did not say on what dates Siskel and Ebert reviewed these movies. A few of these release dates fall outside the range for this season of the show, for whatever reason.
