Manimal is out on DVD.
We never thought we would type those words.
It’s pretty much the greatest show from 1983 that contained a detective who transformed into any animal, but most of the time just a panther or a hawk. It lasted eight episodes. Then-pre-teen Joe Crowe was nonplussed.
Since then, this whole Manimal fandom thing has really gotten out of hand with him. You’ll hear why and how.
At DragonCon on the American Sci-Fi Classics Track — the live-action home of RevCast irregulars Gary Mitchel, Tegan Hendrickson and a plethora of fine folks — we hosted a Manimal panimal two years ago, way before we knew Manimal was coming out on DVD.
Here it is in its entirety, because it is full of geeky love for quickly canceled sci-fi TV. Joe Crowe and Gary Mitchel were joined by dedicated fanimals Dr. Geek Scott Viguie and New York Times bestselling writer Debbie Viguie.
That’s right. Fans of Manimal packed a whole convention track room. Your move, people who take sci-fi too seriously.
