Memo to the Academy – 1996

13 thoughts on “The Disney Years – 1996

  • I was also wondering if you have episodes for the following 1996 films:

    Big Bully
    All Dogs Go To Heaven 2
    Flirting with Disaster
    The Frighteners
    First Kid
    The Stupids
    Maximum Risk
    The Rich Man’s Wife

    • The reviews for Kazaam, The Frighteners, Rich Man’s Wife , Fled and Flirting with Disaster are in here.

      • Then I totally must have missed it…but thanks but there are other films that I was looking for too that have reviews for 1996 that are not here like Maximum Risk and The Quest…both are Van Damme films

  • Thetvdb’s episode guide verifies that this is another one of the most complete years in the archive. Below are the missing episodes, but I noticed the individual M:I, Spy Hard and Star Trek reviews are on YouTube:
    S10E19 Memo to the Academy – 1996 (1/13/1996)
    S10E38 Eddie/Dragonheart/The Arrival/Mission: Impossible/Spy Hard (6/1/1996)
    S11E08 The Associate/High School High/Normal Life/Twelfth Night/Trees Lounge (10/26/1996)
    S11E12 Star Trek: First Contact/Shine/Jingle All the Way/Sling Blade/Microcosmos (11/23/1996)

    • Forgot to add that the Sgt. Bilko review and part of the Jack & Sarah review is missing from that episode, which is why it’s marked incomplete here.

    • S10E38 Eddie/Dragonheart/The Arrival/Mission: Impossible/Spy Hard (6/1/1996) has been recently uploaded by andyfilm on YouTube, btw I would provide the link for the episode on this, but unfortunately every time I try to this site keeps moderating my comments.

      • Hey, old fashion guy! Sorry about that. I will look at the setting for links later today. I saw what Andy had posted yesterday on his YT channel. I will try to incorporate that link onto this site this Sunday. Andy and I are exchanging vids at the moment (sorta). He wants my collection of Gabler and Lyons (Sneak Previews/PBS) reviews back from the early 80s.

    • The show with The Associate, etc. of course has been uploaded here now.

  • User andyfilm on YouTube has posted a 1996 interview special with four celebrities, Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Steven Spielberg and Brad Pitt. It appears at least two of these interviews are not posted elsewhere on the internet at this time:
    The Siskel & Ebert Interviews – 1996 Network Primetime Special

  • It’s great to have some missing shows being found and put up here. Keep it up, guys!
