ALL IN THE FAMILY: THE NEXT GENERATION

Rob Reiner

Rob Reiner’s character Meathead struggles to deal with the fact that his worldview is FIVE DECADES out of date.

All in the Family: The Next Generation, the brand-new sitcom from Glitternight Productions debuts tonight. Cult director Eddie Wozniak strikes again with this controversial update to the original 1970s series which blended the standard family sitcom format with a nearly Ibsenesque examination of social and political issues. 

Rob Reiner is back as Meathead aka Michael Stivic. This time around Stivic is the Archie Bunker-type character to reflect the way that Rob Reiner’s generation of self-infatuated 1960s fools have grown as stagnated in their thinking and as trapped in the past as was the original Archie Bunker generation.

Episode Two of the hottest new cable show in the land airs tonight. That program is American Kaiju from cult film and television director Eddie Wozniak. The brilliant premise of the show: Wozniak pits “big” creatures from 1950s American schlock films against each other in the style of 1960s and 1970s Japanese Kaiju movies.

... a giant spider whose size, color and opacity vary from scene to scene.

… a giant spider whose size, color and opacity vary from scene to scene.

Last week’s premier episode saw Glenn Manning, the 60 ft tall Colossal Man, battling the giant buzzard from outer space featured in the film The Giant Claw. Tonight Manning clashes with the gigantic spider from Earth vs the Spider.

The spider was mutated by radiation (naturally) and is rampaging through Phoenix, AZ when the government summons its special operative the Colossal Man to leave his Area 51 home and save thousands of lives from the atomic arachnid. Continue reading

AMERICAN KAIJU: THE AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN VS THE GIANT CLAW

Glitternight Productions strikes again with a very entertaining new cable television series! Cult film and television director Eddie Wozniak has put together a show called American Kaiju. The brilliant premise of the show: Wozniak will be pitting “big” creatures from 1950s American schlock films against each other in the style of 1960s and 1970s Japanese Kaiju movies.

Instead of battles like Godzilla vs Mothra or Gamera vs Barugon, American Kaiju will feature 66 minute episodes like tonight’s The Amazing Colossal Man vs the Giant Claw. The premise the show proceeds from is that Glenn Manning, the 60 feet tall Colossal Man in question, neither died nor became the deformed monster from Attack of the Colossal Beast.

And in this corner the 30 story tall buzzard from outer space aka The Giant Claw!

Instead Manning was kept alive and well in Area 51 as a specialized operative against the proliferation of gigantic bugs and monsters from outer space that plagued the U.S. in the 1950s. American Kaiju has a lot of fun with how odd the mindset and attitudes of that era seem compared with today without getting overly political.

It’s all good fun as the Colossal Man will battle another brobdignagian beast every week, just like Ultra Man from Japanese television. The special effects are marvelous for the destruction of U.S. cities like Las Vegas, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and others. Continue reading
