Do you remember the television experience known as Night Flight? I say "Experience" and not "Show" because Night Flight was so, so, so much more than a show. It ran on USA network in the 1980's from 11:00pm until 7:00am on Friday and Saturday Nights (two 4 hour shows aired back to back) and experienced a very short revival in syndication in the early 1990's. It was like no other program on television and it did a lot for me, personally. The show shaped my pop consciousness and opened me up to so many, many things. In fact, Night Flight has proven to be a Fountain of Youth for the teenagers who watched it back then, if only mentally.
Well, thanks to the people on YouTube who like to upload their old videotapes, I've created a reconstruction of a Night Flight show. It's not perfect, mind you. It's not a proper full show (the segments promised in the opening aren't here) and the segments originally aired from 1981 to 1988 (instead of all in one evening), but this is basically what it was all about.
Please enjoy. Fasten your seat belts. The Night Flight has begun.
