In anticipation of reviewing the recent DVD release of the cult 70s TV courtroom mystery, Petrocelli, starring Vanishing Point’s Barry Newman, we thought we’d first look at the two movies that directly led to the creation of that fondly-remembered NBC series, beginning with director Sidney J. Furie’s big-screen The Lawyer, from 1970.
Anchors aweigh and get another bottle of bleach: they don’t call it “The Love Boat” for nothing!
Keep ‘em locked and loaded, ladies. Ballsy, unapologetic rape revenge meller, with that sick, patented Stephen King black humor.
Bionic babe captures reviewer’s heart…all over again.
Strange, cold, perverse thriller from the golden age of disaster movies.
We like our 80s prime time soaps here at Drunk TV. Oh yes we do.
Oh, it’s the same alright. Nothing’s changed on The Love Boat this sophomore season except the guest passenger list and the ever-morphing rationalizations for the rampant sexual harassment plaguing the Pacific Princess. And ain’t you glad they left it alone?
