In the world of SCTV, there was this independent cable network located somewhere in the midwest. The show generally followed the day-to-day operations of the little station that couldn't, intersperced with sketch comedy in the form of fake commercials, shows, and movie-parodies.

DRIVE-BY GEEKERY (Early Eighties Edition): SCTV: “Zontar” (Season 4, Episode 12)

Republibot 3.0's picture

The Republispouse got me SCTV on DVD as sort of an present-in-advance for my birthday next month. (I know. I don't get it either, but, hey, windfall!) and I’ve been plowing my way through them in delirious abandon. There’s a number of old SF gags in the show, which I’ve been debating mentioning on here despite being nearly 30 years old. I mean clearly, no one cares anymore, so why should I waste everyone’s time? I realized that I have to do at least one of these: the episode entitled “Zontar” which is an obvious reference to the 60s d-movie “Zontar: The Thing From Venus.”
