Rodney Dangerfield was one of the most beloved standup comedians in history, a master jokester whose self-deprecating persona was practically tailor-made for sitcoms. But when the time came to make one, for some reason it was all about teenaged Rodney Dangerfield fan who had the power to summon (and teleport) Dangerfield from wherever he happened to be at the moment, to give him relationship advice.

Believe it or not, with a premise like that, WHERE'S RODNEY never made it past the pilot episode. But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold walk you through this baffling episode of television and suss out how it fits into Rodney Dangerfield's legendary career and why nothing about it works, except for a single, solitary moment of perfection.

After he was MACGYVER, but before he was STARGATE SG-1, Richard Dean Anderson was a LEGEND. In this short-lived steampunk western series, Anderson played a hard-drinking coward who writes books about Nicodemus Legend, a saintly hero who wields extraordinary technology, courtesy of a sci-fi scientist inspired by Nikola Tesla, played by John de Lancie from STAR TREK.

LEGEND was overshadowed by the overall failure of its network, UPN, and from the more popular one-season steampunk western series THE ADVENTURES OF BRISCO COUNTY JR., which had left the air only a year earlier. But was it actually... CANCELED TOO TOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold guide you through this charming adventure series to figure out what worked, what went wrong, and whether LEGEND would succeed or fail if it came out today.

Everyone was trying to cash in on the MIGHTY MORPHIN' POWER RANGERS boom in the late 1990s, and one of the weirdest imitators was VAN-PIRES, a live-action/CGI hybrid about human teenagers who turn into vampire cars to fight other vampire cars and make terrible, TERRIBLE car puns. 

Oh yeah, and somehow it had an original soundtrack by John Entwistle from THE WHO. 

Crazy, right? So maybe it's possible that VAN-PIRES was... CANCELED TOO SOON! Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold delve into the bizarre mythology of VAN-PIRES, the confusing conspiracy theories about who played "Van He'll Sing," and a heck of lot more in the latest episode.

Reese Witherspoon took the world by storm in LEGALLY BLONDE, a blockbuster feel-good comedy about a Beverly Hills sorority girl, clad entirely in pink, who goes to Harvard Law School and proves all her naysayers wrong. Two years later we got a sequel everyone remembers, and a failed TV pilot that nobody heard of, starring Jennifer Hall (UP ALL NIGHT) as Elle Woods!

It only lasted one episode, but was the LEGALLY BLONDE television series... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold delve into what works about the movies, what transfers perfectly to the show, and what seems missing from this TV obscurity. (And if you want to hear us talk about all three of the LEGALLY BLONDE movies, check out the latest episode of CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED!)

The year was 1995, and virtual reality was going to unlock all the mysteries of the universe. Or at least, it was going to be the subject of endless sci-fi movies and TV shows like VR.5, a post X-FILES knockoff about a secret society who employs hacker Sydney Bloom (Lori Singer) to drag criminals into virtual reality and unlock their deepest secrets. Over a dial-up phone line.

VR.5 may be a little hilarious now that we know more about computers, the internet and, well, virtual reality... but was it CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold unlock the secrets of VR.5 to reveal what works, what doesn't, how we know Christopher Nolan was probably a big fan, and you should never, EVER do a parallel reality episode in your very first season.
