THERE’S SOMETHING IN THE AIR FOR THIS WEEK’S FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!!!

With April 20th (aka 4-20) right around the corner, we here at Beta Max TV decided to go with the flow (or perhaps that should be go with the smoke) for the theme of this week’s FRIDAY FUN -TIME FIVE!

El Vato’s burning some “incense” and Uncle Pete’s feeling fine as The Dark Vault Of Public Domain presents that scare film from 1936, REEFER MADNESS.  Drug dealers lead innocent teenagers to become addicted to ‘reefer’ cigarettes with wild parties and jazz music resulting in dire consequences. Uncle Pete and El Vato join in the fun!

We’re not sure what  Roger Corman was smoking when he asked junior director Francis Ford Coppola to “Americanize” this Soviet made sci-fi movie, but we’re guessing it was something and BATTLE BEYOND THE SUN (1962) is the result.  Join Lee Turner on After Hours Cinema for this re-edited Russian space drama about the race to put the first rocket on Mars (with extra footage for the American version).

Green makes the scene on this week’s Beaucoup Askew’s Fashion Trashin!  In the LEGALIZE THIS 420 SPESH, With the news that the green stuff is now legal in all 15 of the Separated Provinces, Cinnamon and Diamond head out to find the best places for everything pot and pot related. Plus there’s the Party Bulb song “Wizard Bong Smoke”.

There’s always something green somewhere close by on Mistress Peace Theatre.  And this week there’s also a big bag full of bloopers, boners, and mistakes for the MISTRESS PEACE THEATRE OUTTAKES SPECIALMistress Malicious and her cast present some of the best outtakes from season 2 of Mistress Peace Theatre.(mature language). Plus, the 3 Stooges in Sing A Song Of Six Pants. Hosted by Glen Lentz.

And The Cinema Snob gets in the herbal mood with a terrifying story that could happen to your children, or YOURS, as he presents a review of that 1936 classic cult film REEFER MADNESS about the evils of marijuana.

You might want to crack a window as this week’s FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE lights up the screen on your home for B-movies…and smokin’ shows!  Beta Max TV!!!
