Movie Meltdown - Episode 196
This episode marks the triumphant return of Movie Meltdown's Bigfoot series!! We welcome not one but two Bigfoot experts, or "observers", to discuss the phenomenon that is - BIGFOOT! We start off with an overview of the Bigfoot film craze, starting with "The Legend of Boggy Creek" and look at what has become the sometimes crazy community of Bigfoot enthusiasts that has sprung up in the real world. Then after that intelligent observation of a specific slice of society, we take a 180 degree turn and talk about the "legend" that is the 2012 SyFy movie "Bigfoot". The intelligence stops there. But we do have Alice Cooper! Plus Danny Bonaduce, Barry Williams, Bruce Davison, Sherilyn Fenn, Howard Hesseman and a handful of other people who showed up for a day and a half to make this thing. But we do... have a lot of fun talking about it!
And as we ponder the questionable judgment involved in the Million Dollar Baby Bigfoot story, we also mention... Tower of Technobabble, Sasquatch Odyssey, my very first sleepover, samurai chatter, appealing to pro wrestling fans, the big game hunter, Trapper and BJ looking for the Loch Ness monster, the working man's Ira Glass, Not Another Bigfoot Movie, the animated Hot Wheels show, the ole Suncoast days, Chewbacca, passed the polygraph, Night of the Lepus, mom jeans, squirrels, why they got a record of this movie?, the Bigfoot steak, the Mayor is a dick, The Bigfoot Alliance, The Six-Million Dollar Man, a taxidermy website, beef-foot, skinny-girl coffee, The Pope is a strange creeper, Noah's Ark of Death!, a rubber suit full of roadkill, a shape-shifting alien, the Roger Patterson Bigfoot footage, Jaws, individual hairs, is Bigfoot a carnivore?, and it's John Wilkes Booth all over again!
Spoiler Alert: I guess, if you think you can spoil a SyFy movie - then you have been warned.
"As a Bigfoot fan, I guess I could be insulted... if I cared."
