The lovable dog BENJI starred in a series of hit films across multiple decades, but he only had one TV show, and it was a bizarre hybrid of STAR WARS, THE FUGITIVE and GUMMO. It was called BENJI, ZAX & THE ALIEN PRINCE, it aired Saturday mornings in 1983, and it's one weird watch, we gotta tell ya.
BENJI, ZAX & THE ALIEN PRINCE is one of the weirdest shows we've reviewed all year, but was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold look back at this cheap, depressing, almost completely forgotten TV show to give you the answer.
