There is a TV station that I some times flip to because it has a fair amount of classic TV shows that I really enjoyed when I was a kid (and to some extent still enjoy… Such shows as: Alf, Batman: The Animated Series, Hercules The Legendary Journey, etc…
This station they call, ‘The Hub’ (it’s probably different in various states, but if you are a fan of 80s & 90s TV like myself, then you might want to check it out, it truly is a lot of fun)!
With that said, there was one show that they air from time to time which I actually hadn’t seen since I was a kid, (of course that was until recently), that show is, ‘ Lois & Clark The New Adventures Of Superman’!
Now of course there are many reasons why this show was really awesome (obviously the most prominent being the fact that it was the first time that Superman was re-introduced to the small screen since George Reeves played the role on TV in the 50s…)
With that said, there was another reason that I thought that show was pretty cool, and that was that it gave me the opportunity to check out the awesome work of Dean Cain (Future Sport).
Unfortunately it seems like Dean Cain would eventually disappear from mainstream Hollywood. This was a shame because the guy is a truly talented actor, who has made what ever B Movie he has done since playing Superman better! And I think honestly that largely that is due to the fact that this guy would bring amazing talent to B list movies, and one of them that he did this for was Post Impact (2004)!
Written by Torsten Dewi (Lost City Raiders), Christoph Schrewe (Bibel Code) & Directed by: Christoph Schrewe. Starring: Dean Cain, Bettina Zimmermann (The Charlamagne Code), Joana Taylor (Back In Business), Nigel Bennett (Forever Knight), John Keoghe (Equilibrium) & Hanns Zischler (Munich).
This movie tells the story of how after a comet impacts the Earth, Captain Tom Parker (Cain), and his family are waiting at Rammstein Airbase in Germany to be airlifted out of the disaster zone… The only problem is that his CO at the time, Colonel Preston Waters (Bennett) has ordered him to help with the people on board the plane!
Being the good soldier that he is, and assuming that he will have enough time to get back to his family, he heads in to the plane to help the panicked passengers make it to their seats… The only problem is that as he is doing so, the plane is sealed shut, and starts taxing out of the airport.
When Captain Parker realizes this, he attempts to highjack the plane to get back to his family, (that is of course until he is knocked unconcious and taken out of the disaster area against his will!
A few years later, the Earth is a completely different place… Most of the Earth is covered under ice, and the, ‘New United Northern States’ is in control in a virtually frozen Morocco… During this time some one from the frozen wastelands of Germany has decided to use a satellite that was still in working order in orbit over the planet to use the microwave weapon on the satellite to get revenge on the new world order for abandoning those that were left behind!
In the end the President of N.U.N.S. (the new government), sends Colonel Waters, and a crew of soldiers. as well as Anna Starndorf (Zimmermann), who is the daughter of the man who invented the satellite, and the former Captain Tom Parker to go and stop the people operating the satellite before they can destroy the rest of humanity!
But in the end, while doing so, they will end up on a mission that will help change the world!
This movie I think I may have seen part of at one point on Syfy, and I know that a lot of people consider these to be pretty bad movies, but the truth was that I found these movies most of the time to be a lot of fun… And this one I really enjoyed as well! As a matter of fact, the only problem that I had with this movie is the fact that the characters, Colonel Waters, and Sarah Henley were not written very well, and you could tell in how different these people would change their basic character styles ( i,e. Colonel Waters goes from being a military jack ass to a nice guy and back again frequently.)
Short of what I mentioned above, this movie was pretty awesome, and definitely worth it, and if you have a chance, you might want to check it out as well… You might find that you really like it as well!
