Supergirl VS Max Headroom


Very sorry for the lazy theme week. I'm having a pretty busy week. Maybe I should extend this to be Supergirl Month.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving everyone! Here's a clip of Supergirl kicking ass from the terrible-yet-adorable 1984 film. Fun fact! The skinny truckdriver is played by Matt Frewer, aka Max Headroom, aka The Guy on my T-shirt in my Profile Picture!

I remember seeing this all the time when I was little. I don't think anyone I knew had a video of it, but it was the afternoon movie a LOT before I started school.

I always thought it was kind of icky and ...wrong, somehow, but in a way that I liked. I think this was my introduction to camp.

That is one brave truck driver. No matter what super power she lets loose, he just bats it aside with a little bravado. She could have transformed into a giant dinosaur and he'd have have just been like "Oh, you wanna bite, huh giant dino woman? Well I've got some thing for you to AGHGH AGHGHH MY ARM YOU BIT OFF MY ARM AGHGHGH"

Sadly, Matt Frewer and I have had our face and hairline morph in exactly the same way over the years. When the sitcom "Doctor, Doctor" was on, many people thought I was him. Good or bad, still not certain.

Supergirl beating up Max Headroom is all well and good, but am i wrong in finding the other trucker resembles B.A. Johnston? (i guess he loves it when she dresses up...)

In a world where superman is real a girl blows your rapin' buddy through a wall and you pull out a switchblade?
