"Basic Cable"? Who is "Basic Cable"? I've never heard of his Youtube channel. Is he any good? Is he worth subscribing?

The amount of time between now and 1990 is greater that the time between 1990 and the first Moon landing.

or the Beatles breaking up. which happened before they were even 30 years old.

at least it starts out with MST3K

It was either that or The Higgins Boys and Gruber, that's pretty much all the programming they had back then.

Hey now, there was also an excellent chance, in those early days you could catch many reruns of "The Missonary" (a little remembered film starring Michael Palin) or "Lethal Weapon" i.e. "we're considering this a comedy because we need content, damn it!"

Or "Whoops! Apocalypse!"

....I skipped half-way, and ended up on the commercial for 'Lobo Lock', a steering wheel lock device.

The commercial said 'if you're not completely satisfied, return it for a full refund'.

This is brilliant, because it'll never happen. If you're not 100% completely satisfied, you can't return it, because it was stolen alongside your car.

They didn't get Penn until a couple years after it became Comedy Central, did they?

I didn't watch it when it was the Comedy Channel. Was six in 1990. My earliest memory of Comedy Central is around '93 or '94 when they had Penn.

Also, apologies: some connection fuckery threw my post up twice.

I liked it better as The Comedy Channel in some ways. Every original show was 2 hours long (even though 3/4 of that was Supercar episodes) and it generally had a weird, no budget public access feel that made all the pointless clips of standup acts worth slogging through.
