Welcome to RC’s newest category “Development Hell” where bad photoshopping meets our ideas for movies that will never be made.

We begin with the Perfect Strangers film, starring Zach Braff and Christ Kattan (after Giovanni Ribisi drops out) as the oddball roomies. Mike and Jim are to thank/blame for much of the concept: French Stewart, Emperor of Mypos receives a prophecy via a goat kicking someone in the balls. The message is clear – Balki is to become Emperor! Stewart, drowning in Coming to America rip off jokes, comes to Chicago to stop the prophecy from coming true but not if these Perfect Strangers can help it.

Yes, this is now how I spend my early Wednesday mornings.

Alasdair Gillis in UFO Kidnapped

I’m sure anyone that grew up in the 80′s remembers “You Can’t Do That On Television“. You know, the one Nickelodeon stole the green slime idea from. I didn’t have cable in the show’s early years, but I remember always watching it over friends houses and eventually at home. Now that I look back on it, I really think Alasdair on that show was my first ever boy crush. For a while, before it was all offical, I was even able to get my name onto IMDB saying I was a cast member for an episode in 1984 (its since been taken down, but served as a fun party trick for a couple of years).

I recently found a really bizarre tv movie also made in canada starring most of the same cast (minus Christine “Moose” and Lisa, the girl everyone made fun of). It’s apparently called “UFO Kidnapped” and why it wasn’t an instant children’s classic, I am not sure. Perhaps its scenes like this one with Alasdair and inappropriate alien touching (which happens on several occasions, check out 3:12 in the video). The canadian accents are super strong there eh. and the special effects might be described as Lost In Space meets Barbarella divided by Doctor Who with a pinch of Land of the Lost thrown in (in other words AWESOME). I’ve attached some screenshots of some of the best. To watch the full video, check out Canadiantalentshines on YouTube.

The basic plot (if you can call it that) is that two brothers and their dog are “UFO Kidnapped” (ie kidnapped by a ufo). On the spaceship, they meet a weird Victorian girl, a group of of fuzzy ewok/carebear like things called Loolis (that are too like to grope anyone), a cat burglar (the same guy who played “Barf”), two midget aliens, some cyclopes, a primative boy, and a bunch of other things that don’t make that much sense. Watch and enjoy!

"Sam" and "Sam" Undercover in Silk Stalkings

‘Sam’ and ‘Sam’ undercover in one of the many times they get into a potentially dangerous sexual situation by employing overplayed Southern accents, lycra zipper dresses, and shiny shirts.

Silk Stalking Dispatchers in a Submarine

In Florida, the police dispatchers answer calls in stylized submarines.

Perhaps you remember a little late night (‘crime time after prime time’, to be specific) guilty pleasure called Silk Stalkings? My mom and I used to watch it all the time and I thought a revisit to the 1991 tight skirts and shoulder pads series might be in order for this week.
