This week on It Was a Thing on TV we present the winner of our Election Day 2021 poll along with one of our favorite moments from a popular cable show back in the day and Olmec!
First, it’s 1984 and NBC is riding high on The A-Team so, of course, they had to capitalize on that trend. Mix The A-Team with martial arts and you get The Master…sort of. It didn’t work, getting the heave-ho off the schedule after 13 shows. But it did get immortalized somewhat thanks to Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Next, one of our favorite shows from the mid-2000s was MXC: Most Extreme Elimination Challenge. When the show debuted, it started with a bang…or is that an almost snap of someone’s neck? One contestant called Rob Tussin tried making a glorious entrance but it almost ended in catastrophe. And he jumped right up and continued with the game!
Finally, Greg (for 20 or so minutes), Chico, and Mike watch the debut episode of the Legends of the Hidden Temple reboot. Since it is a live show and we like keeping as much of the show intact as possible, you’ll hear the same technical difficulties we experienced.
