  • I was just wondering if you have the episodes for the following 1988 films:

    Bloodsport (Van Damme)
    Biloxi Blues

  • I’m posting a list of episodes that appear to be missing from this year to aid people who might have some of these to post. I used the episode guide at thetvdb to compare against what’s here. I would guess if you don’t see a 1988 movie in the videos posted here or listed below, they probably didn’t review it that year:
