Amusing: The Avengers (1978 Version)

I watched almost everything they used for the clips here -- including Exo-Man.

I got mad at my dad because at one point in Exo-Man, someone said, "Kill Exo-Man now!" and my dad said, sarcastically, "Kill Exo-Man??!!" Like, pretending he was into it, but totally wasn't. Totally taking me out of my Exo-Man mood.

Bonus Nonsense: Speaking of Black Widow... Is Putin having an affair with Russian SexSpy Anna Chapman?

The 70s Were Big On Cheapie TV Superhero Shows: The Six Million Dollar Man, I think, got the ball rolling, and then there were all sorts of superhero shows, usually of really low quality.

The Hulk show had mid-range production values, at least, compared to some of the others.

This was during a period when Marvel was giving out its licenses to anyone for very low rates, and I guess DC did the same.

Anyway, to prove this: There was a horrible, horrible prime-time show called something like "Challenge of the Super-Friends." To give you an idea of the tenor of it, I think Ruth Buzzi was a guest star. It was a comedy or something, but with Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, and so on. Pretty much most of the major DC characters except for Wonder Woman (rights had been sold for a show that would soon be on TV) and Superman (rights had been sold for a movie that would soon be in theaters).

Anyway, that thing was godawful and had a super-low budget. Most of it was villains and heroes in costumes just sitting around their headquarters.

But a few morons watched it (me), so they did another one, with an even lower budget.

How do you do a super-hero show with no budget? Well, how about the Super Friends have Roast hosted by Ed McMahon, where they trade quips with Sinestro and Solomon Grundy? Just standing at podiums?

This happened. Here's special guest "Ghetto Man" appearing at the Justice League, um, Roast.
