Blast from the Past : Hawaii Five-O

Thought it be fun to compare the old and the new. Have a listen and post your thoughts.

I really like how they kept the originals sound and some of the visuals (close up of the airplane, Steve McGarret’s intro). It is a great way to pay respect to the original.

Blast from the Past: Debbie Gibson vs. Tiffany

According to TVGuide, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson, the bubble gum divas from years past, are set to star together in the upcoming SyFy movie Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, in which they will actually have a good old-fashioned swamp fight. To honor this occasion, I figured we could take a look at two songs from their past and have a little “battle” of our own. Take a look at the videos below, then comment on which one you think is better, even if you think they are both fabulous.

Blast From the Past: Shockwave

The new Transformers movie is now underway, and along with an apology from Michael Bay for Revenge of the Fallen, an announcement for the franchises latest villain has been announced: it is none other than Shockwave (not to be confused with Soundwave, the cassette player that was turned into a satellite for a brief appearance in part two.) For those that are unfamiliar with him, Shockwave was a decepticon that was left behind on the home planet in order to keep things in order. Like Megatron, he could transform into a gun, but in my opinion his had a more impressive appearance. Take a look at the video above to get a glimpse of Shockwave from the 80’s version of Transformers.

Blast from the Past: Pac-Man

For those who weren’t sure how big the video game phenomenon known as Pac-Man was, look no further than this 80’s cartoon based on the hungry little fellow. This was another Hanna-Barbera variation on the family unit (such as the Flintstones and the Jetsons), but with a Pac-Man twist, having Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, and even baby Pac-man taking the place of Fred, Wilma, and Pebbles. Fun fact, this aired back to back with former blast from the past entry Rubik, the Amazing cube. Take a look at the intro and enjoy.

Blast From the Past: Galaxy High

Now, I’m going to admit something that might come as quite a shock to some people: I was a big nerd in school. I’m proud of it now, but back then I was ashamed. That’s why underdog stories involving nerds always kept a small place in my heart, and Galaxy High was no exception. For those that remember this 80’s cartoon, the plot centered around Amy and Doyle, two Earth students chosen to attend an outer space school named Galaxy High. Amy was your typical unnoticed bookworm, while Doyle was the school stud. However, once they arrived, their lives switched. Amy became a the sweetheart of the school, while Doyle had a hard time making friends. I don’t think it lasted very long, however it’s one that a lot of people seem to fondly remember, even if they weren’t nerds like me. Check out the intro below, or if you can’t see it, click here.

Fun fact: One of the writers has become a famous director, whose credits include one of the most beloved film series of all time. Wanna know who, click here.

Blast From the Past: Rubrik The Amazing Cube

A few weeks ago, Seth McFarlane (Family Guy) made a reference to an 80’s cartoon called Rubrik The Amazing Cube on Real Time with Bill Maher. Now, I like to think of myself as a T.V. aficionado, but it appeared that after much thought, I just could not place this one. Luckily we have youtube, however even after watching the intro. I still only have a vague idea of the show. Hopefully you all will have better luck than I did. Anyone remember it?


Andrew Koenig’s Body Found

 I was honestly hoping for the best in this situation, unfortunately that is not the case.  The body of Andrew Koenig, best known for playing Boner on Growing Pains and who was reported missing has been found in Vancouver, and according to his father, committed suicide. Police have not released details, but do not believe there was any foul play.

In honor of Andrew, I have decided to make this weeks Blast from the Past an episode from Growing Pains that I remember him the best in, courtesy of on the link below).

Title: Semper Fidelis Plot: Mike feels abandoned after Boner joins the Marines.
