80's Cheese: Starcade!

Wow! I just saw this 80's cheezorama game show today for the 1st time on G4; the gaming channel. You have to see it to really appreciate how ridiculous this show is, yet I loved every minute!

The show pits two geek-hip early 80's gamers against each other as they battle thru 4 or 5 video games like; Burgertime, Gyruss, Defender, Moon Patrol, & Galaga. All hosted by an old fool that knows NOTHING about video games. How did this show not rise to cult icon status?!

I know there are a several of you old school gamers out there that can shed some light on this jewel; Bring on Zaxxon!

Has this ever shown up on the American Game Show Network yet?

I don't think it's been shown on GSN, I think G4 (also a US station) jumped on it as soon as they remembered it

Used to watch the one Geoff Edwards hosted all the time on TBS when I was a kid.

I remember watching this after I got out of school everyday. I can't believe they're actually showing the reruns.
