    I used to crave this show every Saturday night. Then the show went downhill when the bigwigs decided to put Joe Bob in an apartment rather then keeping him outside his trailer drinking beers. His movie facts were also quite funny and interesting

    I much preferred Joe Bob when he was on the Movie Channel. The movies could be shown uncensored, and he was free to talk about how many breasts, etc. were shown. [​IMG]

    I'll take his print reviews. If one of my local newspapers would carry them, I'd buy it just for his writeups. I lived for "Joe Bob says check it out."

    I'll agree with Robert that Joe Bob's Prime was during his Movie Channel days. The shows were less-structured, and Joe Bob was seemingly free to comment on anything that crossed his mind. The man is actually a genius when it comes to the art of "redneck monologues" and he has also written some VERY funny books as well. The real drawback of the man's career is we've never gotten to see a real "Joe Bob Movie". It wouldn't have to be big-budget or anything, just John Bloom doing the Joe Bob character in the context of a filmed story. It would work. I've also always found myself cheering when he showed up in supporting roles in big movies (Face/Off and Casino being two good examples). To sum it up, the man is nothing short of brilliant and deserves better than to be a "cult" figure.
