I get that the 90 minute mark is ideal for riffing but what about adding more time to the host segments? Nothing extreme - we don’t need to double the movies. But say Torgo showed up or you had an idea for what the boneheads have been doing trapped in Moon 14 but it would be 5-10 minutes longer than the TV format. Like it’s not broken don’t fix it but what about pushing it for comedy sake?
Well, Ingmar Bergman DID make many movies…
(Also, welcome to the forums!)
Well, the SciFi movie specials kind of fit that bill. It would be fun as an occasional treat.
The Sci-Fi era gave us the “Bobo makes a sandwich” host segment because they couldn’t use a short for The Undead, and I’ll forever be grateful that we got that host segment.
