March 11, 2015 11:55 PM - Season 2, Episode 10 - Subscribe

(1955, B&W, Sci-fi, Short, Gordon, Lippert) "See a Prehistoric World of Fantastic Adventure Come to Life!" Said world is teeming with lizards dinosaurs, but it's nothing a good ol' atom bomb won't take care of. With the short X Marks The Spot, which poses the question: what if Judgement Day is a traffic court? We've already had a number of films produced by Robert Lippert (a watchword for pain if ever there was one), but this is the first of eight movies directed by our old fiend Bert I. Gordon, aka "B.I.G.!" But let's not get too down on the guy, he's still alive and has a web site! Rock on Bert, we'll celebrate your name better when we get to The Magic Sword. YouTube (1h37m) First aired December 22, 1990.

X Marks the Spot reminds me a little of Defending Your Life. I wonder if Albert Brooks had seen it as a kid?

I'm going to try to have shorts running on loop until then, to help us get through the news of Terry Pratchett's passing with the cleansing, healing balm of sarcasm.
