Default First 5 episodes of My Mother the Car on Trio

Trio TV will air the first five episodes of My Mother the Car July 21-26:

DIRECTOR QUENTIN TARANTINO AND COLUMNIST JOEL STEIN TO CURATE MY TR!O

Pink Lady & Jeff, Battle of the Network Stars, and My Mother The Car -- Premiere On TR!O July 20-27

Writer/Director Quentin Tarantino and Time magazine columnist Joel Stein have been commissioned for the first two quarterly editions of MY TR!O, where guest programmers schedule the network's primetime line-up for one week, it was announced by Lauren Zalaznick, President, TR!O.

"We're taking our pop culture mission one step further by hiring the icons and arbiters of pop culture to program TR!O for a week at a time, " said Ms. Zalaznick. "Whether it's film, television, comedy or anything else, TR!O will be obsessed with whatever cultural artifacts our curators are obsessed with."

"MY TR!O: Joel Stein Week" kicks off on Sunday, July 20 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT with the premiere of My TR!O: Joel Stein, a half-hour special that explains the curator's unusual programming choices for the week. The special features clips from the upcoming week's shows as well as phone interviews with Welcome Back, Kotter's Gabe Kaplan (who appeared on Battle of the Network Stars), Jeff Altman (Pink Lady & Jeff) and Greg Fitzsimmons (Idiot Savants).

The first episode of TR!O's limited original series Good Clean Porn, follows at 9:30 p.m., ET/PT. This three-edition series spotlights the subtlety of the acting and the complex narrative storylines of four classic porn films, without any of those distracting sex scenes. The films Debbie Does Dallas, The Devil in Miss Jones, Through the Looking Glass, and I Dream of Jenna are each the subject of their own episode.

Among Joel's hand-selected acquired series will be five episodes (from 1976, 77, 78, 79 and 80) of the reality show "Battle of the Network Stars" (1976-1988) which featured teams from the three major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) who compete against each other in physical challenges. Stars include Billy Crystal (Soap), David Letterman (Mary), Robin Williams (Mork and Mindy), Farrah Fawcett (Charlie's Angels), Penny Marshall (Laverne & Shirley), Ron Howard (Happy Days), Rob Reiner (All in the Family) and many more. The series premieres on TR!O on Sunday, July 20 at 10:00 p.m., ET/PT (re-airs 1:00AM ET/PT) and airs Monday through Friday that week (July 21-25) at 7:00 p.m., ET/4:00 p.m., PT (re-airs 11:00PM ET and 8:00PM PT). (All five episodes from that week will re-air on Sunday, July 27 in a marathon)

Additionally, the weeknight primetime schedule will include the camp favorite "Pink Lady and Jeff," a short-lived 1980 NBC drama series featuring a female Japanese rock duo (Pink Lady) and comedian Jeff Altman, airing Monday to Friday that week (July 21-25) at 10:00 p.m., ET/7:00 p.m., PT (re-airs 1:00AM ET/10:00PM PT). Guests include Sherman Hemsley, Larry Hagman, Sid Caesar, Donny Osmond, Florence "Mrs. Brady" Henderson, and Hugh Heffner ans his Playboy Playmates. All 6 episodes will re-air throughout the day on Saturday, July 26.

In keeping with the camp theme are the first five episodes of the Jerry Van Dyke classic "My Mother the Car" (1965-66), a comedy about a mother who was re-incarnated as 1928 automobile. Dave (Van Dyke), her son, was the only one who could hear her speak. This series airs Monday to Friday at 9:30 p.m., ET/6:30 p.m., PT (re-airs 1:30AM ET/10:30PM PT). Episodes will re-air throughout the day on Saturday, July 26 as well.

Idiot Savants -- another personal favorite of Joel's -- is a 1996-97 MTV quiz show in which four college-age contestants were asked pop culture questions by wiseguy host Greg Fitzsimmons. An episode featuring a younger Joel Stein as a contestant premieres on Monday, July 21 at 9:00 p.m., ET/6:00 p.m., PT.

To celebrate Joel's birthday on July 23, Late Night with David Letterman, airing during MY TR!O week in the special time period of 6:00 p.m., ET/3:00 p.m., PT, will feature the episode in which the talk show host reads a letter written by Joel Stein when he was a child.

"MY TR!O: Quentin Tarantino Week" premieres Sunday, October 5 and airs through Monday, October 13 (Columbus Day). The acclaimed director's eagerly-anticipated film Kill Bill starring Uma Thurman is slated to premiere in October. Details for this and future editions of "MY TR!O", hosted and programmed by other industry luminaries, will be announced shortly.

Thanks Pav!

Too bad they aren't airing all the episodes. At least I'll see a few.

Thanks for posting the article, Pav.

I am definately anxious to see the first five episodes of My Mother, The Car, and I agree it would be nice if they did continue airing the series, but I just glad they're airing it at all.

Default My Mother the Car

What is TR!O t.v. ? I read that some episodes of MMTC were going to be aired on this 'channel?' I loved My mother the car and have never been able to see it since it was new. Also, I am very new to these type of boards with threads, etc. so I may be on the wrong screen as I am typing this.
I have a question that does not involve sitcoms, but I have not been able to find any evidence that a certain show was ever on television and I know I watched a few episodes. My husband vaguely remembers it also. It was about two cops -male and female- that were married but had to keep it a secret because in their force it was against the rules for two cops to be married. They had apartments right next door to each other and I think that a bookshelf opened up so they could be together just like regular married people. One episode that I remember is that one of them was shot and the other couldn't visit because they were not next of kin. ??????????????

More My Mother the Car on TR!O in June, 2004 for a week:

TRIO’s June “Flops!” primetime schedule features films and series within the following themes:

· “Just Plain Cancelled”: Taking a cue from TRIO’s “Brilliant But Cancelled” programming block, this “Flops” version features television series from the “what were they thinking?” category, or shows that deserved to be cancelled. Each night during the week from June 1-4, TRIO airs episodes of Cop Rock, the musical police drama by Steven Bochco, at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT, followed by back-to-back episodes of the sitcom My Mother the Car at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. and the variety series Pink Lady and Jeff at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

TR!O is an odd little networky thing. On the one hand, I wish I got it so I could watch the short-lived shows they air. On the other hand, they seem to only have a few shows (limited funds to purchase rights with, I understand) and if I'm not mistaken they have a very annoying, very obtrusive black bar at the bottom of their broadcasts. I've seen an episode of East Side, West Side from TR!O once and the black bar and TR!O logo made it almost unwatchable.

Did they actually go ahead with the week of Tarantino's selections?
I watched some of Joel Stein's week, but don't recall seeing anything further.


A few hours after posting this question, I saw an ad on TRIO for QT week, so never mind.

This time Trio aired the first seven My Mother the Car eps, and I got them all back-to-back (though not in order) on tape in a marathon aired June 6. Maybe Trio will eventually show all 30 eps.
