For the latest Murphy’s Media Memories, I transfered an old VHS tape I had and uploaded it to the world. Welcome to the world of 1985, where you can learn about Halley’s Comet (if you are a kid). So, just how is this low-budget direct-to-video 80’s edutainment? Let’s find out.

This is the final episode of the 3 part M.A.N.T.I.S. review. This time, after showing you the TV Movie, then the Pilot, I take you through a brief summary of the 1st half of Season 1, and describe how great it is, but then I get into a detailed analysis of why the 2nd [...]
Now that you’ve learned of the TV Movie, I show you the TV Pilot for the M.A.N.T.I.S. TV show. The character Miles Hawkins (as MANTIS) and the same actor playing him (Carl Lumbly) return. An all-new cast appears for a new concept on the M.A.N.T.I.S. that is an entirely different direction and tone [...]
This begins my look at the Live-Action MANTIS TV Movie and the Live-Action MANTIS TV series (all from 1994 – 1995).

Yes, it’s time for something popular from my memories, but a little different than most people do it (since there are most likely millions of reviews of this show on the internet). In this episode, I spend a lot of time going over Morph’s character arc on the series, as well as describing his [...]
Murphy’s Media Memories – Jurassic Park Stolen By Carmen Sandiego Invaded By The Alien Cyborgs: The Game
That title is no joke. This is a board game / RPG game that I created after watching Jurassic Park and playing only 1 hour of a Dungeon & Dragons-like game.
While at my cousin’s place one day, he had me play this game that only required listening and then stating what you want to [...]
