  • Do you have episodes for the following 1989 films:

    Three Fugitives
    Cyborg (Van Damme)
    Kickboxer (Van Damme)
    Red Scorpion (Dolph Lundgren)
    No Holds Barred (Hulk Hogan)
    Uncle Buck (John Candy)
    Casualties of War (Michael J. Fox, Sean Penn)
    Next of Kin (Liam Neeson, Patrick Swayze)

  • No Holds Barred and Next of Kin are downloaded.

  • But the other movies I mentioned like Three Fugitives, Cyborg, Kickboxer, Casualties of War, Uncle Buck they reviewed that much I know

    But how about The Punisher (1989)? I wonder if that will also be downloaded

  • What happened to the reviews of “Parenthood” and “Sex, Lies & Videotape?” Those were on the old site.

  • Using thetvdb as a guide, these appear to be the episodes missing from 1989:
    S03E28 Video Treasures (3/25/1989) – I don’t know if it’s the same as Video Discoveries (7/1/1989)
    S03E46 Sex, Lies, and Videotape/Young Einstein/Parenthood/The Music Teacher (8/5/1989)

    The rest of these are missing from here but all were posted on YouTube by andyfilm in 2021:
    S03E18 Beaches/We Think the World of You/Dangerous Liaisons/The January Man/36 Fillette (1/14/1989)
    S03E20 Physical Evidence/Parents/Gone with the Wind (50th Anniversary)/The Dressmaker (1/28/1989)
    S03E21 Her Alibi/Three Fugitives/Lawrence of Arabia/Kinjite: Forbidden Subjects/Voices of Sarafina (2/4/1989)
    S03E22 Cousins/The Mighty Quinn/True Believer/Tap (2/11/1989)
    S03E25 New York Stories/Farewell to the King/Lean on Me/Out Cold (3/4/1989)
    S03E48 New Faces of 1989 (8/12/1989) – this appears to be a rerun of S03E19 (1/21/1989)
    S03E49 Casualties of War/Rude Awakening/Uncle Buck/The Abyss/A Chorus of Disapproval (8/19/1989)

    • A bunch of them are on youtube that aren’t on here and I have brought it up too. Thanks for helping as well to get missing episodes up here.

      • No problem. now he these just have to upload them on this site because although I copied and pasted the links, its still only on youtube.

    • That one you linked to with the Burbs is already on here, since 2019. But four of the episodes andyfilm posted which we have mentioned on this page still need to be posted to this site. I listed them below again just so we don’t forget about them. These are the titles andyfilm used:
      Siskel & Ebert Classics – 1/13/89 – Beaches, Dangerous Liasions
      Siskel & Ebert Classics – 1/27/89 – Parents, Physical Evidence
      Siskel & Ebert Classics – 2/8/89 – Cousins, True Believer
      Siskel & Ebert Classics – 3/1/89 – Farewell to the King, New York Stories

    • Sorry Michael.I will try to do catch-up this week on this site. Most appreciated!

      • I also mentioned this to you, plus I told them on youtube about those episodes. He even has some that seem a little cleaner, like Worst of 1988.
