Blast from the Past: Hardware Wars!

A long time ago in a suburb far far away, a cable service called TeleCinema was available to the early-adapters of cable boxes. Or, in our case, a nifty box we got at Radio Shack that let us swipe all the extra channels by dialing them in between UHF channels. Aside from the notorious "Channel F," which we only sneaked peeks at for fear of death, there were many fun things to watch that were just a dream before. Remember, this is before VCRs.

We watched Phantasm, The Car, Bug, Rosemary's Baby, It's Alive!, It Lives Again! and many other horror movies again and again. But one thing that really brought us some joy (and hey, we were easy to please), was the Star Wars spoof, Hardware Wars. And remember, this is before YouTube existed too.

For the uninitiated, here it is.

Thanks to Stupid Monkey Planet for the idea.
