Bad Influence (CITV)
« on: May 27, 2013, 15:38:21 PM »
For those people growning up in the late 80's / early 90's. Just stumbled across a classic CITV show called Bad Influence, a bit like Gamesmaster for kids. Dunno if anyone else remmebers this

Anyone around at the time will remember Bad Influence and Violet Berlin.  :113:
I also remember a series on Bravo TV with Violet Berlin in, Game Pad which was made after Bad Influence.

They showed some clones and hacked systems on Bad Influence including the Scorpion 16!

I loved that show, fond memories and its confusing that there is nothing like this on TV these days.

I remember this show very well as I watched it religiously and have posted about many times on this forum before, especially because they were big lovers of the Atari Lynx.

You can download the magazines and watch old episodes right here!!!!

Awesome. That's TV this week sorted. May get killed by other half but it's worth the sacrifice
