Cheaters: Best of Season One

Tragically, "Cheaters" may be the best kept secret in exploitation television. Each week, the syndicated "real reality" program plants viewers into the lives of couples grappling with the slippery slope that IS fidelity in these romantically perilous times. Your average marrieds. Lesbian lovers and their male brothers. Confused beaus who’d ask their sweeties to marry […]

Colin’s Sleazy Friends Rocks

From the ashes of two royal kitchen disasters, tittering LA cable host Colin Malone returns to his true calling, which is cramming porn and garden-variety stars together for often comedic results.

Carnosaur 3: Primal Species

Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV

So declares a stirring Stan Lee voiceover heralding our hero of super-human size and strength that culminates with the apologetic declaration: "THIS is the REAL sequel!!!"
