Degrassi: An Introduction

So it was something of a shock to find out last year that, not only had other people actually seen Degrassi Junior High, but it was now out on DVD. Degrassi was a part of my adolescence that I had always assumed was lost forever, like lazy Sunday afternoons riding bikes to nowhere. This was such a personal thing for me, that the existence of Degrassi on DVD was tantamount to having my brain patterns stored on magnetic disk and replayed twenty years later. It was like someone gave me a chance to drink New Coke again. In fact, it was like someone gave me a limitless supply of 2-liter bottles of the stuff.

Michael Jackson's "Ghosts" (1997) (part 3 of 3)

Back in '93, when Michael seemed merely eccentric in a Howard Hughes kind of way, "Ghosts" probably would have played better, or at least not utterly horrifying. But given what he's been accused of since then, it's hard to sympathize with him in this video. After all, we learn his character is inviting young boys to his hideaway, and exacting promises from them to keep quiet about what goes on there. Amazingly, this whole "film" is all about why sane adults should not freak out about this.

DC 9/11: Time of Crisis (2003) (part 2 of 2)

So here we are, five years later. And yeah, I know that as far as websites go (and even as far as websites making fun of bad movies go), this one is pretty insignificant. But I felt it was appropriate to reflect upon the fifth anniversary of 9/11 in my own way. And while other sites will revisit the memories, the horrors, the highs and lows, here at the Agony Booth, I can think of no better way to mark the occasion than to review the single worst film ever made about those events: DC 9/11: Time of Crisis.

Reading Rainbow “Behind the Scenes of Star Trek: TNG” (part 3 of 3)

“In my endless search for obscure film and video of particular (and peculiar) interest to regular site visitors, I came upon this little gem: An episode of the PBS series Reading Rainbow from 1988, where host LeVar Burton takes his viewers (from what I can recall, mostly retarded schoolchildren) behind the scenes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. No-brainer, right? Star Trek + Kitschy ‘80s = Agony Booth Gold. Texas T. Am I right?”
