Gladiators Play The Saturn!

OK, I'll come clean. I've already posted this video before (or links to it anyway) but I can barely conceal my delight at finding an embeddable version. What makes it so great is that apart from being a blast from my kids TV past, it features the legend that IS Andy Crane!

Andy Crane used to present kid's TV for the BBC, with a glove puppet called Ed The Duck. He was quite the man at the time. Since then his career has now nosedived quite a bit and he is now news anchor man of a Manchester only TV channel. He is also a figure of affectionate ridicule on the wonderful UK Resistance.

So strap yourself into the DeLorean, set the dial to 1994 and enjoy!!

Good videos always deserve a repost :)

I knew I was forgetting something... Remember them saying that Forbidden Kingdom, that movie with Jackie Chan and Jet Li, had a Dreamcast on it? Well, I just saw it, and not only there's indeed a Dreamcast in the main character's room, but there's also a reference to the Saturn.

When the kid is trying to learn kung-fu he starts talking about some character's moves in, guess what, Virtua Fighter 2. Fuck yeah! With all the beat 'em ups we have today that they could have used, like Dead or Alive 4 ou VF5, they went for an arcade and Saturn classic! :D
