VIDEO: Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (1998)

Before Samuel L. Jackson, Marvel’s Avengers, and ABC’s upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., there was an attempt to bring a live-action Nick Fury to life, starring none other than the Hoff himself. This pilot never became a series, but we did get David Hasselhoff being David Hasselhoff for 90 minutes. What more do you need?

VIDEO: Rejected Pilots: “Cybertron”

This review is in Spanish with English subtitles! The Renegado looks at “Cybertron”, the forgotten, rejected original pilot for VR Troopers, starring Jason David Frank, AKA the Green Ranger, as Adam Steele, a guy who merges with a cyborg in footage recycled from the Japanese series Choujinki Metalder.

VIDEO: Wonder Woman (1974)

Dr. O’Boogie intrudes on Sofie’s territory with his own review of the Wonder Woman pilot! No, not the one with Lynda Carter, or the one with Adrianne Palicki—this was the very first attempt to bring the Amazon Princess to life, starring future That’s Incredible host Cathy Lee Crosby as a blonde Wonder Woman with a lame costume and no powers, unless you count her amazing ability to always be on the phone.

VIDEO: Doctor Who (1996)

It’s the 1996 made for American TV movie Doctor Who, where Sylvester McCoy passes the sonic screwdriver to the next generation, namely the Eighth Doctor, played by Paul McGann. Also, Eric Roberts shows up to completely ruin the movie with his appearance as the dreaded Master.

VIDEO: Wonder Woman (2011) “Pilot”

Sofie examines the most famous comic book super-heroine of all time, Wonder Woman, by looking at the awful, awful way Hollywood and the TV industry treated the character in the 2011 David E. Kelley-produced NBC pilot starring Adrienne Palicki as Wonder Woman, which was so bad that (very fortunately) it never aired.

VIDEO: Captain America (1979)

“They don’t get much cheesier or TV movie-er than 1979’s Captain America, starring Reb ‘Big McLargeHuge’ Brown as the Sentinel of Liberty. There’s no Red Skull or HYDRA or Cap getting entombed in a block of ice in this movie, just a big doof with overinflated biceps riding his motorcycle and battling Wink Martindale’s evil twin.”

Doctor Who (1996) (part 4 of 4)

“So, basically, in the first minute of the movie we’ve managed to see seven rather stupid mistakes that are guaranteed to annoy most fans of the original series. Well done! It’s seldom a movie manages to have that many problems in such a short span of time. That’s one stupid mistake about every eight seconds! I am impressed.”

The Film Crew: The Giant of Marathon (2007)

“Contrary to what some might think, being a RiffTrax affiliate does not mean I get to borrow the Tom Servo puppet on weekends to show off at parties (it would make a great keg, too). I’m just a fan like everybody else, doing what I can to keep the home riffing fires burning. And despite having a similar concept, and featuring the same people, I think there’s plenty of room in this world for both RiffTrax and the Film Crew.”
