Turns Out returns, as we take a look at toys that caused holiday riots like Tickle Me Elmo, the Cabbage Patch Kids, and Barbara the Beaver. You don’t know Barbara the Beaver? Maybe you’ve heard of Flirting Flossie? What is the liquid filled dice agitator and why is it so popular? Ask again later.
With the fall TV season getting underway, what better time to take a look at some TV pilots that didn’t quite make it? We predict the future in the past in the form of a question, get caught swapping bodies in outer space, wrestle with the law, and get lost—again—in space. Also featuring the most Glenningest moment of Glenning, turns out.
Let’s see…Sondheim’s songbook, horse skulls, the ghost of Paul Lynde, why pissed on shark is not necessarily better than the pissed off kind, dinner at Sardi’s, goat erections, truly stinky cheese, the wrong Perry Mason, fountain boys, Christmas Pickles and where to stick them, the worst Deliverance adaptation, and a joke for the Rob Brydon fans? It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at the Incomparable Game Show. Also, we premiere some new game show concepts, Moises gets an explicit tag, and we find out who actually wins this round.
In case you thought we were bluffing, Turns Out is back with the unbelievable stories of where some of your favorite science fiction series really came from. Aleen Simms and Glenn Fleishman join host David J. Loehr in trying to pull the Andorian velour over Scott McNulty’s eyes. Also, we play the most obscure lightning round yet, we find out who’s the Shatner in the room, and we try not to get annoyed when our flight gets delayed. You wouldn’t like us when our flight gets delayed.
As April winds down, we remember great and not-so-great April Fools jokes. Jason has a lot of de Gaulle, Scott has a nose for pranks, David has an outdated video game console, and Glenn glenns about the original Glenner because Glenn.
In our new panel game of bluffs and double bluffs, Erika’s not drinking the Kool-Aid or whatever that is, everyone finds Glenn’s story hard to swallow, Jason goes international, and David brings up haggis. Also, Dan is not on Candid Camera, because there’s no camera, duh.
