Every Episode of ‘The Incredibly Strange Film Show’ (1988-89) and ‘One Week Only’ (1990) streaming doc’s featuring Lynch, Raimi, Meyers, Jodorowsky, Waters and more.

Season 1: “The Incredibly Strange Film Show”

The Jonathan Ross hosted, ‘Channel 4′ series ran for three seasons under different names followed by a 2014 show on Pedro Almodovar.

Season 1: “The Incredibly Strange Film Show” aired in 1988 and includes episodes on: John Waters, Ray Dennis Steckler, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Ted V. Mikels, Russ Meyer, Sam Raimi. Everything is here with the exception of HGL’s episode part #1 (which I couldn’t find anywhere). I am using clips from YouTube since they have been up for years. The clips are not the greatest quality, which is how I like to present things in order to encourage folks to go out and buy any of the official high quality formats available. However, it appears as though we may not be seeing any official blu-ray, or the like, because of the potential cost involved with gaining permission to use all the film clips. The film clips are essential to the show, so, unless things change, we may be limited to what is available online in lower quality formats… which is probably ok, because tv’s were kind of shitty back in 88-89’, so I guess, YouTube at 240p probably simulates that viewing experience quite nicely.

I would like to add that, after I posted the blog link on Twitter. I was happy to see that Mr. Ross chimed in on the post and made a brief comment/correction. Normally, I am embarrassed about my lack of skills when it comes to accuracy, but in this case, if I wouldn’t have fucked things up, then mr. Ross would have just walked right past. So yay! I got to chat a bit with the host of the greatest TV show about movies and filmmakers ever, and I guess he’s done a bunch of other stuff… but I live in a tiny world, and in that tiny work, “The Incredibly Strange Film Show” is all there is.
