Stinker of the Week – Homework

Roger reviews Class of 1984 by himself at the end of this video.

I believe gradepoint obtained this unaltered video from the Library of Congress. I also believe this was the first show under the Tribune banner.

  • You see Nostalgia Critic? That’s how your idols review movies! All you ever do is not do any research, make dumb, unfunny skits with cheesy special effects, and come up with questionable film critiques!

  • After watching Nostalgia Critic’s review of Pink Floyd The Wall, I’m so happy Siskel and Ebert weren’t alive to see that awful. What he did to The Wall was to completely take its themes out of context to make it look weird and pretentious as possible and pander to his viewers with unfunny skits. Hell, it didn’t even qualify as a review, because a film review is supposed to talk about how he or she thinks and feels about said film. Siskel and Ebert were capable of this. Nostalgia Critic choose skit comedy to cater to the lowest common denominater.

  • Online episode guides do have this as the first Tribune episode. They say the Road Warrior episode was the last episode of the PBS run, so there was about a 7-week gap where they weren’t on the air. It looks like Fast Times at Ridgemont High was the biggest movie that came out during that gap. It’s not clear if they ever caught up and reviewed it later as we don’t have the full line-up for other early Tribune episodes. There was also a rerelease of Star Wars during this time that was not insignificant (the rerelease was the 50th highest-grosser of the year) which could’ve prompted them to look back on Star Wars if they had been on the air.

  • I saw on gradepoint’s profile page on the old site in the Wayback Machine, that he said he obtained eight episodes from the Museum of Broadcast Communications around 2014. I had posted elsewhere on this site a few months ago a list of quite a few episodes that that organization still has listed in their online archives that this site doesn’t have. I even tried e-mailing the Museum at that time but didn’t get a response. I’m not sure what methods gradepoint used to obtain those eight videos. And if the Museum didn’t have all the other missing episodes in their files at that time, or if there were only certain ones he was allowed to get.
