"The Walter Banks Network," approaching its second decade, is an absolute classic. Banks writes, hosts and edits the show, a space drama involving humans of the past, present and future (Abe Lincoln among them) and their alien counterparts. The style is fragmented, as voice-overs and jump cuts appear almost at random, audio and video are frequently mismatched, etc. The resulting universe is cold and vaguely threatening, which is not a surprise since this started as a boxing show! Tune in every Friday at 5 PM on MNN3.
