TechnoRetro Dads: Supergirl Celebrates 35 Years on the Silver Screen

by TechnoRetro Dads

No, Les, turkeys cannot fly out of a helicopter hovering over downtown Cincinnati — but Supergirl could.

Master of the GOLiverse Steve Glosson joins shazbazzar and JediShua to remember and rewatch Supergirl from 1984.

When Mr. Carlson gets his next hair-brained idea for a Thanksgiving promotional for WKRP, someone please remind him of what happened last time.  Especially if he thinks he can use the Omegahedron to create some gobblers to save the world from the evil witch Serena.  Maybe it would be better to stay in and watch Gary Coleman’s appearance on Buck Rogers in the 25th Century on Turkey Day.  It might avoid another Turkeypocalypse.

In the NEWS

Ron Howard and Warwick Davis have a promising future on Disney+ with an upcoming Willow series. 

We Love Our Cereal…

…and the Roving Spoonster gives us more reasons to love coffee with news of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Coffee-Mate.  PLUS: you can enjoy a bowl of Oreos cereal in a new, comfy Oreos onesie (or with a friend in a Double Stuf sweater).

Prime Time on Thanksgiving (1979)

After the football games, you might have enjoyed these prime time programs with your family on Thanksgiving 1979: The Waltons on CBS, Laverne & Shirley on ABC, or enjoy Gary Coleman’s appearance on NBC’s Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.  Can you guess what we were watching?

Let’s Go to the Movies: Supergirl

SuperFriend Steve Glosson (The Big Honkin’ Show, Geek Out Loud, Disney Vault Talk, and Forceology) brings his depth of superhero (superheroine) knowledge to TechnoRetro Dads.  Now that Supergirl has earned her own ongoing television series, it’s a good time to look back at her big screen appearance thirty-five years ago this month.
