People once believed that a crow carries souls to the land of the dead.

People also once believed that lightning was caused by a giant man who lived in the clouds and threw flashing light down at people for no reason.

Anyway, I guess being brought back to life by a disease-ridden bird grants you all the vast powers of a mime or something.

Actually, the thing that is extra special stupid about that is that the make-up only really means anything to Eric Draven, so it was kind of dumb that every successive movie/comic/whathaveyou had the central undead guy wearing the same make-up.

Isn't that future Iron Chef USA host Mark Dacascos? Of course, I already know the answer to that one. I mostly remember him as starring in various fair-to-middlin' direct to video action films.

The girls also looks like the sidekick on CSI: Gary Sinise.

They shoulda just called this one "Fey Highlander"

I remember this show sucking balls. Yet my sisters insisted on watching it along with every other P.O.S. show.

What I'm saying is "Fuck Women!"

They also liked Xena, Babylon 5, Buffy and a whole other bunch of shitty shows.

I really liked Babylon 5. I haven't watched it since it went off the air. I have this deep suspicion that I'll hate teenage-me for liking it.

Lindner
It's okay. This 90's week has reminded me of a great many shows I followed in my younger days.

I wish I had that time back.

Fucking Babylon 5

Goddammit, that motorcycle really gets around.

It looks like their budget didn't include the clown white make up. He seems to be running out come the end of the intro.

This intro makes the show look better than it actually is. Everything Crow related is a bit embarrassing, but this is special. This show would almost qualify as a YouTube fan video. It's beneath SyFy.

I hate to be "that guy," but the original comic is fantastic. All downhill from there, though.

I'm surprised they even bother to make this based off of anything crow related let alone the first film.

Considering how absolute and self contained the first movie was, this seems like the completely wrong way to go. Plus the comic books were basically and anthology series, why not go that route? oh I forgot the slight cult of brandon lee and what not.

To be honest I like the first film, the second film is dogshit bad and the third is actually pretty fun (note: that does not include any of the scenes featuring Kirsten Dunst). I find the fans of the first film and annoying goths really soured me to anything related to this franchise, let alone they are the reason this shit existed.

The original Crow comic series was pretty mindblowing when it originally came out. It was indie, which back then was still kind of a big deal, and it was just such a visceral, unapologetic, dark piece of work that it really impressed a lot of people, despite the faux-shitty-goth trappings that arose from it. The successive books, most of which weren't written or drawn by James O Barr, were pretty terrible and just run of the mill revenge stories, but the original is deservedly a classic for many people before companies like Slave Labor ruined the "dark" graphic novel area. The original movie was a fantastic adaptation in that it was sort of it's own thing rather than trying some weird, over-the-top way of translating the comic. That's pretty much my feelings on the Crow. Fuck all the stupid goth worship bullshit that emerged from it, though.

Oh, and also: yes, I am aware of O'Barr's reputation as something of a huge dick. Oh well....

Did they leave out the white greasepaint so that TV viewers of the time wouldn't mistake the Crow for Sting?
Rape Van Winkle
I hate Mark Dacascos. No, really, I mean I fucking hate him.
