Posted by

Remember when Saturday mornings were worth getting up for? While we can’t provide a four-hour block of programming, here’s some retro news you may have missed (or simply want to revisit) from the past week.

Saturday Morning Programming:

Last week we watched M.A.S.K. This week, we’re watching The Mask. Sorry.

Video Games:

SHIT JUST GOT REAL. An unfinished version of Sonic X-Treme (well, one level of it) is available for download.

And here’s a little more info about the release:

Music:

floodlive

They Might Be Giants posted a live version of their classic Flood album… and it’s free!  Also, be sure you’re keeping up with their 52 songs in 52 weeks project at dialasong.com.

Movies:

Universal is hinting at some big Back to the Future event, marked as #BTTF2015.  Could it be a comeback of Back to the Future: The Ride?  No, probably not, but we can dream of altering the timeline so that the ride never closed, right?  Writer/producer Bob Gale has gone on record many times as saying there won’t be a re-boot or Part IV, so it might turn out to be something pretty great for fans!
