The real cornerstone of my youth was TNT’s MonsterVision, hosted by the brilliant Joe Bob Briggs (as portrayed by John Bloom.) He sat in front of a trailer set in a lawn chair and introduced that night's line up of films, which could be anything from an all-night FRIDAY THE 13TH marathon, to a John Carpenter double feature to a George Romero-themed lineup to even classics accepted by the public at large. He added such a sense of fun to watching these films, and obviously took a great sense of pride in hosting this series.
