The Sci-Fi Film School #24 – UHF

Play

On this episode of The Sci-Fi Film School, we talk about the 1989 movie UHF.

In this movie George Newman (Yankovic) is a normal man. Problem is, he’s also a daydreamer, who can’t keep hold of a steady job. His uncle decides George will be the perfect man to manage Channel 62, a station which is losing money and viewers fast. George’s imagination is put to good use and he starts thinking up bizarre shows such as “Wheels of Fish” and “Raul’s Wild Kingdom”. The ratings start to soar again, but not everyone is happy.
