Whiz Kids 'May I Take Your Order Please?' *Decent Quality Web Rip*

Andrea Elson portrays Alice Tyler, a member of a group of bright high school students and computer geniuses who use their abilities to solve crimes. In this episode, she has overheard two men planning to steal a jewel-encrusted crown while ordering fast food, but no one will believe her. She tracks the bad guys' car through the DMV records and is quickly captured. Tied to a chair, she is gagged with medical tape and held prisoner in the basement of an expensive home. Her struggles finally flip the chair over, alerting an unknowing accomplice to her plight, she tells him the other men are planning to kill him when the job is done and he unties her.

*Ah the 80's, when home computers were the size of a refrigerator and powered by paddle wheels, rubber bands and teams of rowing slaves, lol. It's a cute little show, reminiscent of the movie Wargames in some respects (which came out the same year as the TV show).

One of the more interesting touches in the clip is during one of the scenes where the bad guy is checking on Alice's bonds, he presses on the edges of her tape gag from behind for security. Don't know why that appealed to me, but it did.*

Warning ! Young Damsel !!

12 Monkeys *HQ WS DVD Rip*

Madeleine Stowe portrays Dr. Kathryn Railly in this wonderfully bizarre story about inevitability, fate and time travel. In this opening bit, she has been kidnapped by an escaped mental patient (our erstwhile time traveler James Cole, played by Bruce Willis). He leaves her tied to the bed next to his so he can get some sleep at a motel and tells his captive about a recurring dream he's had since he was a boy. Later, the pair locate the former headquarters of the Army of the 12 Monkeys, where Teddy (played by Lisa Gay Hamilton) and her two male cohorts are bound together with pallet wrap and interrogated about another mental patient who has been inspired to unleash a horrific virus on the world by James's own apocalyptic rants in the institution.

*Really enjoyed this movie. Madeleine Stowe is just about the hottest woman around as well as a fine actress. Brad Pitt can play crazy better than anyone I've seen. (next to Jack Nicholson of course) *
