I was watching when she first came on, channel 9 fright night, then her own show, back in 80-81. The movies were pretty bad, (but good, if you know what I mean) and she was so sexy.

I, too, used to watch her on tv in L.A. in the early 1980s. Her show was a sort of proto-MST3K. She didn't actually interact with the movies that were shown (like Joel, Mike, and the bots did), but she would have segments throughout the movie where she'd make fun of an actor, a theme, a prop, or a line. She really looks good for however old she is--she's been doing this schtick forever!

Yes, and funny. Too bad there aren't shows like that on these days.
