15 thoughts on “The Disney Years – 1998

  • Is it me or did you upload the Rush Hour episode twice?

    • Norman, If you can link me to the other one, it would be most appreciated!

      • You are right, Norman. Duplicate deleted~

  • I was wondering if you have 1998 episodes for:

    Half Baked
    Dark City
    Barney’s Great Adventure
    3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain
    The Big Hit
    Black Dog
    Les Miserables
    Almost Heroes
    Halloween H20
    Soldier (I’m a huge Kurt Russell fan)
    The Avengers (Ralph Fiennes, Uma Thurman, Sean Connery)
    Dead Man on Campus
    54 (Mike Myers, Ryan Philippe, Salma Hayek)
    Knock Off (I’m a Van Damme guy)

    • I don’t believe they reviewed Dead Man on Campus, Barney’s Great Adventure, Almost Heroes, Soldier and Half Baked.

    • There was one website, I think it was TV Guide, that use to have summaries of the shows. I know gradepoint, a big contributor, kept up with that as well. You may want to contact him.

  • This year is another one of the more complete ones. Here are the missing episodes according to thetvdb:
    S12E19 Memo to the Academy – 1998 (1/10/1998)
    S12E22 Zero Effect/Deep Rising/Great Expectations/Desperate Measures/Deceiver (1/31/1998)
    S12E26 Kissing a Fool/An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn/Krippendorf’s Tribe/The Real Blonde/Dark City/The Long Way Home (2/28/1998)
    S12E35 Les Miserables/The Big Hit/Wilde/Don’t Look Back/Little Dieter Needs to Fly/Junk Mail (5/2/1998)
    S12E40 The X-Files: Fight the Future/The Land Girls/Mulan/Off the Menu: The Last Days of Chasen’s/Beyond Silence (6/20/1998)
    S12E50 Breakout Stars (9/5/1998)

      • Hi old fashioned guy, I just downloaded the Empire Strikes Back review, and I will be looking into the others this week. I appreciate the head’s up on this!

      • Dark City – very cool! One of Roger’s favorites!

        • Yeah, he picked it as best film of that year. Thanks for putting up some more of the missing ones from andyfilm. Check the ones he has to not only see missing ones, but if the ones he has are in better shape than the ones already on here.

  • IMDB has a transcript of the Mulan review in their quotes for that episode. Sounds like they had an awkward disagreement about it on the first episode that Siskel was back in studio after his surgery.
