Action Man 96 on THIS network.

Postby atomicjay » 26 Nov 2012 04:42

FYI: One of our local network has a secondary digital channel called THIS (www.thistv.com) On Monday, Wednesdays & Fridays, they air the 96 Action Man series at 8:00 AM, complete with the live action wrap arounds. I've been recording them and will probably edit them down later. Its amazing how much of the live action stuff is reused over and over, especially the VR stuff at the end is almost always the same video with different voice-over.

Maybe they used the voiceovers because they were afraid the live-action actor could quit, while it's easier to replace a voice actor. I'm just guessing.

I believe they did it that way because it was cheaper. Almost every VR scene is the same. I think I notice it because I've been watching them back to back on the DVR. Its almost same sequence every time.

They may of recorded it without any sound in the first place...planning on using different voice actors for different countries & languages?

You and me both, Jamar. I downloaded a few the last time they cropped up and my son and I had a ball watching them.

I have all of the episodes, except R.A.I.D. Got cut off for some reason. I'm trimming them up, removing the commercials, and I'll try to find a way to post them.

I should have those. I've gotten through some of them, and they only one that I have to recapture was R.A.I.D.
