Memories of Night Flight
1 April 2009 | by Bill357See all my reviews

I remember an article From a 1981 issue of Rolling Stone magazine contrasting Night Flight and MTV. Believe it or not, the article predicted that MTV would fold and Night Flight, being on an established channel and being more flexible, was a safer bet!

Unlike the other reviewers, I grew up on a street without cable TV and missed seeing this on USA network the first several years. Sometime in the late eighties re-runs and new episodes began to run on the local NBC affiliate immediately after Saturday Night Live. It completely blew my ten year old mind.

A list of things I remember most:

Bambi vs. Godzilla (of course)

An anti-communist, what if?, TV drama narrated by Ronald Reagan where a freedom fighting teacher's students turn him in to the American KGB

A serialized version of Chained For Life with the (original conjoined) Hilton Sisters, renamed Twin Geeks and with the Twin Peaks theme song playing over old footage of a saw mill

Jack Mac And Radboy Go, an animated short that was one of the inspirations for Beavis And Butthead.

Condensed versions of Night of the Living Dead, a Bela Lugosi Monogram picture and Marihuanna: the Devils Weed

An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

Barnes And Barnes' music video, "Fish Heads", directed by and starring a young Bill Paxton!

Robert Rodriguez's award-winning short film "Bedhead"

A Power Ranger type show from Japan re-dubbed to sound stupid

Bill Murrey Looking for the perfect flower to eat

An animated short with cockroaches dancing inside of a jukebox

A really nervous guy with a bizarre zombie-like, roommate who plays the "Here is Thumbkin" song on a perpetual loop, driving him insane (or is he already?)

A maid who is browbeat by her boss over the phone into killing his wife only to find out after the deed is done that it was a guy who called the wrong number

A guy who who has to battle his way through urban mishaps on his to a job interview only to find out that the boss is the guy he nearly beat up

Music videos by David Bowie, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Duran Duran, Devo, etcetera, usually as part of their Takes Off... segment

If you never saw it you'd probably be puzzled. Needless to say, I was disappointed in the early nineties to see Night Flight turn into an all music video format hosted by the sleazy looking Tom Juarez, playing hour long blocks from the likes of P. J. Harvey, but what else was there to watch?

I hoped it would change back to it's former glory, all the way until it was canceled and replaced on my local affiliate by another worthy but short-lived show, Weird TV.
