Forgotten TV: Pirate TV (1990)

Here's another of MTV's freshman class of the winter of 1990.

Pirate TV was an offbeat sketch comedy series that, if memory serves, aired in back of the Top 20 Video Countdown on Friday nights during its short run. I may be wrong about that. Anyway, after the 13 episodes initially aired, MTV re-edited them down to 30 minutes apiece, and it didn't help matters at all.

Pirate TV also has a hometown connection, as cast members Gregory & James Wolfe, aka the Wolfe Brothers, were the sons of a local TV personality. Unfortunately, they haven't been heard from again since Pirate was cancelled.

I never saw the show, so once again, there is no rating. For now, we have the intro, and a sample clip:
