In the latest installment of Mendopiece Fanfic Theatre, we take a look at the ultimate form of fan fiction: an early '90s Nintendo platform-based licensed game, or rather, the manual that came with it! Is this a dramatic reading of a Nintendo guidebook? A video game critique disguised as a fanfic episode? Who the hell knows?
Pink Lady... and Jeff “Episode #1”
“Most of you have never heard of this show, and with good reason. They only made six episodes, of which only five ever aired, and despite the involvement of the legendary Sid and Marty Krofft, and the fact that it gave ensemble member Jim Varney his big break, there is not one human being in existence who puts this show on their résumé.”Jar Jar, Ruby Rhod, and the legacy of Urkel
“I honestly can’t recall a single example of someone claiming an annoying character ‘ruined the movie’ when there wasn’t a non-white actor playing the role. ”Jupiter Ascending (2015), a recap (part 8 of 12): Aquarela do Bureaucracy
Two writer-directors entrusted with a $175 million budget decide to bring their sci-fi/action film to a dead stop for no good reason. But hey, they got Terry Gilliam to do a cameo!Bonekickers
“The show had, shall we say, a less than stellar relationship with the world history it was attempting to depict. Though, that may have had less to do with the writers and more to do with having to somehow squeeze so much historical skullduggery into the backstory of Bath, a former Roman settlement in Somerset located just off the highway between the exits for Fuck and All.”Pink Lady... and Jeff “Episode #5”
“Honestly, I think Jeff Altman might have been the only person left who still thought this show was a good idea.”Star Trek (TAS) “The Jihad”
Kirk and Spock join the alien version of the A-Team as they search for the soul of an ancient messiah figure, and we promise reading this recap will not put you on any kind of government watch list.
