Today, Retro in the 90s introduces a new recurring feature; TV CASUALTY. Obviously, one can’t understand meta-retro without first understanding retro. Thus, I, your humble narrator, will henceforth regularly pour through the Turner Classic Movies schedule and other basic cable listings to highlight all the classic Horror, Monster, Sci-Fi and Cult films from the Golden Age of American cinema that regularly resurfaced throughout the 1990s. Set your DVR…… to stun.
