Everybody loves Marvel movies. Even the ones from the 70s? Our previous guest, Christian joins us to discuss the marvelous sets & mustachioed acting in this TV movie that hoped to launch a series.
The abundance of reviews online for this film is startling. Here’s one that has some history about the production.
The new Doctor Strange is due out in 2016.
Clyde Kusatsu plays Wong and wins the “I recognize you from everything, but never knew your name” award.
Wait, are we watching Doctor Strange or Welcome Back, Kotter?
Wow. There’s a lot of bizarre music in this film, some great, some terribly sax-y. It’s by Paul Chihara.
Christian gives us the lowdown on the real origin story of Doctor Strange.
Über is not a sponsor and don’t trust Google self-driving cars to get you to your polling place to vote.
The film within the film is Abbot & Costello meet Frankenstein.
What other characters has Peter Hooten portrayed, besides Doctor Strange?
Clea is a student who was possessed by evil & Strange wants to save her. Well, in this TV movie anyway. In the comics, it’s a different story.
Um, really? Chubbie is an appropriate label for kid’s wear?
Does the ancient one have the glow?
We have a female lead as a super villain, but the film fails the Bechdel test because she has the hots for Doc Strange.
Instant Mr. T bling.
CBS was hoping to turn this Doctor Strange pilot into the next The Incredible Hulk TV series.
Battlestar Galactica(1978), the show built on showing the same space dog fight every episode.
What would the future TV show have been like? Paul & Christian want the excellent drawings to begin each show like the leap FX in Quantum Leap.
Interested in watching this old film? Paul says train yourself by watching old Doctor Who episodes.
