Dino Riders yeah.

So recently I blogged about recently finding tapes in my garage with TV shows on them and how I will be blogging about them. I blogged about the first one already, so here's the second one!

Dino Riders! About people who ride dinos!




So basically it's about some people called the Balorians, like in the MST3K episode Space Mutiny but with out all the hot girls in spandex! As the show starts out the Balorians are flying in a spaceship trying to escape from some spaceship full of Reptile people of a verity of Reptilian ancestry (there very Reptilianly culturally diverse! with one of them even being a hammerhead shark!).





The multicultural Reptile people want the Balorians dead for reasons the writers were to lazy to write (so I'm gonna say they wanna kill them for their crimes against fashion cause they all wear ridiculous head bands that would make Mark Knopfler cringe!).





So as they try to escape their attackers they all end up being dragged through time and end up on prehistoric earth!

So of course they decide to mess up our history and wage their pointless war against each other by strapping armor and weapons to dinosaurs and fighting!

Forget making tanks and machines to fight with!

Strap that stuff to a dinosaur! I mean, it makes sense right? Not only will it make a good toy but its also the most logical solution! I mean come on! Tanks? Did we use them in WW1 and WW2? No we strapped turrets to elephants! We had men with machine guns ride on rhinos! Cause that's how you wage war! It just makes sense!




So they each make their armies of dinosaurs strapped with weapons and armor to fight each other and in doing so have to dismantle there ships for parts, insuring that they'll never get home!

But that's okay, they have their war to keep them busy! And boy do their battles go on!

The epic battle in this sole episode contains them all fighting on there heavily armoured dinosaurs, with the Reptile people on triceratops and the Reptile leader on the sole T-Rex and the Balorians on triceratops, brontosaurus and what looks to be peaceful raptors all crowded in a field firing at each other!

In close range!

And with no one getting hit!

The dinosaurs were obviously a good idea.

You can always get a nice clean shot while riding on the back of some triceratops!




And my favorite part is when the brontosaurus with four lasers on its neck and a giant box strapped to its side with four people in it sneaks up on the T-Rex and opens fire! Causing the T-Rex to be surrounded on all sides with by dinos firing at it! But of course the T-Rex doesn't care! All the shots are misses! and the T-Rex just keeps firing back! and those shots are misses too!

But then the human leader has an IDEA he gets one of the flying dinos (did I mention each side has flying dinos too! each sold separately) to pick him up and fly him around. With this he is now able to hit the T-Rex in the head and destroy the "brain box" controlling it thus causing it to go wild and run off!

Why he (or anyone else) couldn't have made that shot before is beyond me but I guess I just don't understand the finer points of shooting at dinosaurs while riding on dinosaurs! So with that the Reptiles run off and... that's it, there is no other episode of this show that I ever heard of, so that makes this show history. And since it happened on prehistoric earth I guess its our history! (but you'll never hear it taught in school!)

  1. Hah like what is the probability that you could shoot a bunch and somehow have all of your shots not have something in their path? Of course the T-Rex can't get killed, it's a T-Fuckin-Rex! The kids would cry! Just freed so it may savage a pack of Diplodicus another day.
