Retro Friday: CBS Gets "Strange" in 1978
CBS is getting back into the comic book business this year with "Supergirl." But the Eye network has dabbled in plenty of comics in the past, including "Wonder Woman" (which aired first on ABC) and "The Flash." Remember in the late 1970s when CBS when a bit comic book crazy? The network had "The Incredible Hulk" and, briefly, "The Amazing Spider-Man." And then, in 1978, was this TV movie (a.k.a. failed pilot) version of "Doctor Strange." Check out a young Jessica Walter! This looks hysterically bad.
Here's the first part of the movie here; follow the links on YouTube if you want to watch it all.
