It’s a chock-loaded show tonight on MeTV- with a couple segments covering the C2E2 convention, plus a visit to a tropical paradise-in the Antarctic- and loaded with prehistoric peril! We’re headed to- “The Land Unknown”!
It’s a Navy expedition to the frigid Antarctic- to investigate a strange phenomenon- an area of unusually warm temperatures. Commander Roberts, along with a two man crew and Maggie,the obligatory female reporter, are flying towards the area when they get the warning of an approaching storm. While attempting to get past it- “something” strikes their helicopter’s rotor, forcing them to land wherever possible.
That landing space seems to be the Twilight Zone- because it’s a steaming tropical jungle- not the usual thing one would find in the Antarctic! While attempting to contact help- and repair their copter- the group encounters more from the realm of the unbelievable- dinosaurs! Not only that- they also spot what appear to be -human footprints!
It’s a battle between the expedition members, dinosaurs from land, sea, and air, a mysterious human inhabitant of the jungle, and deadly man-(or woman-) eating plants! Can the crew survive- or even escape this strange hot spot?
This 1957 sci-fi film has some interesting looking dinosaurs- we’ll tell you about them, as well as our cast ( watch for a still picture of Tarzan- we’re still not sure if it actually is our leading man Jock Mahoney!)- and, we have two segments featuring some of the sights and guests at the recent C2E2 comic and entertainment convention in Chicago- with fabulous costumes,and incredible guests – watch for a chat with former WWE wrestler/ now comics writer and MMA fighter C M Punk, talking about his Sven memories! (BTW-next week- another visit with our pal Jerry “the King” Lawler!)
“The Land Unknown” will reveal itself tonight at 10 pm eastern/pacific, 9 central, or check local listings to find out what time we run in your area. Our Chicago viewers can tune in to WCIU, the U, at 11 am for a second look at “Revenge of the Creature”!
Later today, I make another appearance on the “Lossano and Friends” podcast for their “season finale”-check it out at www.lossano.com -or on iTunes.
I hope you enjoy your Memorial Day weekend- please take a moment to remember all the members of our armed forces who gave their all in defense of our country.
See you tonight- when “it’s clobberin’ time”! ( That’s a comics AND CM Punk tagline!)
