    Here's a pilot from 1979, uploaded by its creator. Haven't watched it yet. Might be good for the Dark TV Vault, might not.

    In one of these other YouTube threads, I revealed that one of the cast members of Free Spirit, Franc Luz, participated in the original Off-Broadway production of Little Shop of Horrors. I finally found a recording to share of him singing, but listen to it at your own discretion.

    I found a guy on Youtube who's posted almost every single Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in full...since 2003, that is. And, unfortunately, none of the videos include the commercials. But he did upload the 1996 parade, which you can watch here.

    Someone else posted this video on another message board in memory of Stan Sakai's recently-deceased wife Sharon, so I decided to share it:

    EDIT: And this is funny:

    Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert strike back at John Simon in a roundtable discussion about Return of the Jedi:

    Listen for gems in this discussion such as "These are the kinds of films that Disney should be making."

    We've all read Peter's commentary on the Spider-Man/Thor comic strip crossover, but here's an alternate take, in video form!:

    The Wizard is 25 years old today...how scary.
    This is another one of those "put the entire movie in the trailer" trailers. Now you know Jimmy makes it to Video Armageddon before you even see the film.

    The good news is I have been saving them myself, with commercials, since 2005 (which is when I got a DVD-R recorder and saving them became practical).

    Peter mentioned a rare Simpsons animation of Homer and Bart witnessing the end of The Cosby Show in a few of his articles, but now those of us who were too young to have seen it on TV can watch it ourselves (I didn't upload it, though):

    For about a month ABC attempted a second TGIF-style block called I Love Saturday; here are the initial bumpers. I hope they didn't try this rhyming thing every week.

    I remember Apple and Cinna-Man.

    Up until very recently, I had one of these flipbooks. I wonder where it went. Obviously they had to win. Or maybe they didn't, because we never heard from them again...

    Not exactly. The first one linked aired in late 1992/early 1993.

    This guy has a lot of pilots uploaded.
    Where's Rodney [1990][Unsold Pilot] - Video Dailymotion

    "Where's Rodney" has commercials because until around 1992, the networks used to air their pilots as "specials" during the summer. Sometimes they even had entire "variety" programs that aired one failed pilot a week.
    Nowadays the only way they get out is if they're leaked.

    The best possible quality video for the final "game over" for the G4 TV channel on 12/31/14:

    Always sad when a cable TV channel dies. As much a zombie channel as this was over the past few years, it's no less tragic.

    Remember encrypted nightly OTA services like ONTV, SelectTV, Telefirst, and Channel Z? BBC Select was a sort of educational answer to those. It ran from 1992 to 1994.

    Jeebus. This appears on the (newly redesigned) TV Tropes page for No Hoper Repeat Main/No-Hoper Repeat - Television Tropes & Idioms.

    Further down the page (the Miss Venezuela bit) describes what they should have done with this: have the viewing party in the TVLand studios at least attempt to crack jokes.


    For my contribution for the evening, here's is Volty's Phoenix Wright AMV Kangaroo Court.
