in watching something silly on amc, i started putting around online and found synopses of old beloved random television shows. i wanted to see how many you could actually guess.

comments are screened. googling is CHEATING, jerks. ***stars*** are put into places where someone's name will very obviously give away what show it is.

have fun.

#1 - Ralph Hinkley was minding his own business, a teacher on a field trip with his high school students, when the bus he's driving mysteriously drives itself out into the desert. A startled Ralph is soon visited by aliens, who had decided to endow him with superhuman powers to fight the battle against injustice and crime. To this end, they gave him a special suit and an instruction manual. Unfortunately, Ralph managed to lose the instruction manual, and the aliens have a nasty habit of never being around when you need them.

#2 - He's part boy scout, part genius... and ALL hero. Angus *** is a secret agent with a difference. He is quiet, mild mannered, deeply principled and refuses to carry a gun on his missions. Fortunately, the last detail is unimportant when compared to his astounding mind. Drawing on a vast practical knowledge of science, *** is able to make use of any mundane materials around him to create unorthodox solutions to any problem he faces. The enemies of world peace and justice continually learn that underestimating this man is a fatal mistake for their plans.

#3 - Jonathan Chase was a British college professor at New York University who had the unusual ability to transform into any kind of animal. He used his powers to battle crime alongside pretty policewoman Brooke and Vietnam-war pal Ty.

#4 - the estranged mother of Amanda Woodward, is the owner, president and CEO of ***, a top Los Angeles modeling agency which, like her ruthless and aggressive daughter on "Melrose Place," she runs her company with an iron fist and deals with all the usual problematic situations with the models and co-workers of the agency which include, backstabbing, murder, betrayal, seduction, blackmail, stalking, and other trash on an everyday basis.

#5 - Judge Harold T. Stone presides over a court which deals with petty crimes which can be dealt with in a dime-a-dozen manner. Invariably, the cases appearing before the court are bizarre, but that's ok because Judge Stone is not your regular judge. He's assisted by a motley crew of clerks and District Attorneys who often create as much chaos as the criminals they bring in for trial.

#6 - (easy peasy) A fugitive scientist has the curse of becoming a powerful green monster under extreme emotional stress. because it's so durned easy, i also want you to tell me the name of the comic version alter ego and the name of the one from the tv series and why there was a difference.

#7 - *** was a self-made millionaire--the CEO of *** Industries, a global conglomerate. His gorgeous wife Jennifer was a freelance journalist. They were both amateur sleuths, and in every episode found themselves up to their eyeballs in murder, smuggling, theft and international espionage. They also managed to find time to snuggle together.

#8 - After her business manager absconds with her fortune, frosty ex-supermodel Maddie Hayes has only one option: sell her remaining asset -- a detective agency headed by wisecracker David Addison.

~~~ and because i'm running out of brain juice to come up with more, here's some of my favorite movies from when i was a child that aren't really meant for children, but that i thought were AWESOME TAWESOME!!:

#9 - A football player and his friends travel to the planet Mongo and find themselves fighting the tyrant, Ming the Merciless, to save Earth.

#10 - A film adaption of the myth of Perseus and his quest to battle both Medusa and the Kraken monster to save the Princess Andromeda.

#11 - Who seduces an angel? Who strips in space? Who conveys love by hand? Who gives up the pill? Who takes sex to outer space? Who's the girl of the 21st century? Who nearly dies of pleasure? In the far future, a highly sexual woman is tasked with finding and stopping the evil Duran-Duran. (why on EARTH my father let me watch this is beyond me.) (i wondered why the name 'jon phillip law' sounded familiar, and it was because he later starred as Kalgon on space mutiny. oy. 'it's santa, debbie reynolds, and sting!')

#12 - Two girls from the Valley (one a cheerleader!) wake up to find that a passing comet has eradicated their world and left behind a mysterious red-dust and a pack of cannibal mutants. With the help of a friendly truck driver, the girls save the earth from a villainous "think tank," karate chop their way through flesh-eating zombies, and, of course, find time to go to the mall.

#13 - An English student at a 1960's American high school has to prove himself to the leader of a girls' gang whose members can only date greasers.

can't think of any more, though it made me add an awful lot of things to my netflix queue.

ooh, and this was what was on that made me want to check out the taglines for all of these:

- Troubled horror novelist and Vietnam vet Roger Cobb, reeling from his recent divorce and the mysterious disappearance of his young son, moves into the strange house left to him by his late aunt. Hoping to find some peace and quiet so he can write his current book, Roger instead must deal with the house's evil apparitions and monstrous demons!

ganked some fun nurse themed icons from a community.

also got a random message from my stepdaddy that he'll be in town next week. i think it's been... nine? ...years since i've seen him. and of course he's coming into town during probably two of my busiest days next week, tuesday and wednesday.
