9: Episode 9: Breaking Away
Nov 8, 2019 • 17 min
QIF's first season comes to a close with the first truly Quaidy property on the man's c.v. — 1979's Breaking Away, a minor classic I had trouble reviewing, because I've seen it so many times, it's like a family member. Old friends, new beginnings, the…
8: Episode 8: Amateur Night At The Dixie Bar And Grill
Nov 1, 2019 • 11 min
It's another TV movie as we enter the homestretch of QIF's first season: Amateur Night At The Dixie Bar And Grill, a surprisingly watchable Nashville knockoff starring not just Dennis Quaid but Don Johnson, Pinky Tuscadero, Isaiah Edwards from Little…
7: Episode 7: Are You In The House Alone?
Oct 25, 2019 • 15 min
A uninteresting and deeply problematic TV movie with a horror-movie shell and an Afterschool Special center, Are You In The House Alone? introduces me to the concept of the Un-Quaidy Valley — and introduces the rest of the world to David Keith. Schoolyard…
6: Episode 6: The Seniors
Oct 18, 2019 • 11 min
Time Out London called it a "satire of sorts" — but what exactly is college-sex-clinic proto-Risky Business romp The Seniors satirizing — capitalism? women's lib? shaggin' wagons? What it's not doing is holding my interest very well, but if you'd like to…
5: Episode 5: Our Winning Season
Oct 11, 2019 • 10 min
Quaid returns to period pieces in Our Winning Season, not that you'd necessarily know from the production. This failed attempt to combine a Porky's-esque sex farce with a high-school-sports roman a clef AND the blight of Vietnam isn't so much bad as…
4: Episode 4: Baretta S04E04, “The Sky Is Falling”
Oct 4, 2019 • 31 min
It's the most expensive, least worth-it Baretta episode in history: Season 4, Episode 4, "The Sky Is Falling," which stars Barry Miller as a beset teenage prostitute, Dennis Quaid as his pimp, and a lot of '70s ideas about who's considered a victim. Oh,…
3: Episode 3: September 30, 1955
Sep 27, 2019 • 9 min
I'm completing the DQ-early-roles 1970s-contemplate-the-1950s trilogy with September 30, 1955, an achingly adolescent meditation on how the death of James Dean allowed John Boy Walton to feel his own losses…or something. James Bridges's (The Paper Chase,…
2: Episode 2: I Never Promised You A Rose Garden
Sep 20, 2019 • 11 min
It's Dennis Quaid's first role…with actual lines! Still not a full wardrobe, though, as he's shirtless — but how does a pitcher named Shark fit into 1976 mental-illness drama I Never Promised You A Rose Garden? An Apollo 13 reunion, Kenickie in beads, and…
1: Crazy Mama
Sep 13, 2019 • 7 min
It's Dennis Quaid's first role: 1975's Crazy Mama, a Julie Corman/Jonathan Demme outlaw-action drive-in joint that's quite charming, thanks in part to 1) Ann Sothern and 2) Quaid not wearing drawers under his bellman rig. What's going on with this…
