It's time for a Guardians Inferno. As Marvel Studios' GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 heads home this month, today comes the music video for the 1970's MECO-inspired "Guardians Inferno," performed by The Sneepers featuring David Hasselhoff. Quite simply, it's the the finest 1970's Disco music video to not have been shot in the 1970's, and believe it or not - I've seen quite a few. Check out the glorious action (which features much of the Guardians cast, alongside filmmaker James Gunn and Stan Lee) below!

As of this writing, Paramount Pictures' big-screen BAYWATCH has just hit theaters for Memorial Day weekend, ushering in summer with a new spin on the syndicated TV favorite. With Dwayne Johnson stepping into David Hasselhoff's iconic trunks as lifeguard Mitch Buchannon, a new generation is getting a taste of slow-mo beach running as Mitch and the crew (which includes Jon Bass as Ronnie, Alexandra Daddario as Summer, Zac Efron as Matt Brody, Kelly Rohrbach as CJ Parker, and Ilfenesh Hadera as Stephanie Holden) take down some baddies that threaten the bay. For the new BAYWATCH, the coast is flipped - with Los Angeles County out, and Florida's Broward County in. While you might not think that an R-rated BAYWATCH screams "toys!," the folks at Greenlight Collectibles are here with a 1:64-scale offering as part of their Greenlight Hollywood series.

The title pretty much says it all: With the release of his new video for "Last Time For Everything," Brad Paisley just unleashed the music video that I've wanted to make for myself since 1985. Indeed, the nostalgia factor is high, from the title sequence and bikes inspired by the Netflix Original Series Stranger Things, to the inclusion of walkie talkies, a boys-only clubhouse, a DeLorean, the Ghostbusters' Ecto-1, a SONY Walkman commercial, UFOs, dinosaurs, and appearance by my idol, David Hasselhoff and K.I.T.T. from the greatest television series of all-time, Knight Rider. Best of all, the action is all captured in beautiful VHS quality, dated October 26, 1985. But I have to ask... Brad, what's with the life preserver?

Aside from perhaps, STAR WARS, the most-mentioned pop culture property here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine is undoubtedly The Greatest Television Series of All-Time™, KNIGHT RIDER. That's what the youngster in me still believes, the very boy who eagerly awaited new episodes on a weekly basis from 1982-1986, who made watching reruns after school a part of his daily routine from 1988-1990, and who still stops and watches for a bit while running across an episode on television, despite having owned the complete series on DVD for years. Of course, my affection lies firmly with the original KNIGHT RIDER - the Glen A. Larson creation that starred David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, who alongside a talking 1982 Pontiac Trans Am known as the Knight Industries 2000 (K.I.T.T., if you prefer) fought bad guys for an hour each week. While there have been several sub-par "reboot" efforts over the years, none have matched the original, and the long-rumored cinematic version (rights have changed hands repeatedly) never materialized. Now there's hope for a proper KNIGHT RIDER to ride again, as Justin Lin (FAST AND THE FURIOUS series, STAR TREK BEYOND)  is heading up a Machinima "Digital Series" for a 2017 launch.

Confession: I and my children have never played LEGO Dimensions... not even a demo, and for whatever reason, despite all of my LEGO coverage, it just hasn't happened. While my interest was piqued last year, we missed the first go 'round of the LEGO entry in the "toys-to-life" aisle, but with today's news that may have to change... LEGO Dimensions just grabbed my retro-loving heart. This Fall, the call is to "Go Bigger," and that means new characters spanning new franchises, many of which are completely unexpected. From a LEGO "Tom Cruise" as MISSION IMPOSSIBLE's Ethan Hunt to characters from ADVENTURE TIME and the forthcoming GHOSTBUSTERS reboot, the 80s are well-represented with E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, THE GOONIES, GREMLINS, BEETLEJUICE and THE A-TEAM, and the biggest one for me... a set from the greatest television series of all-time: KNIGHT RIDER! While there's no pictures available, you can pretty much expect a LEGO Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff) and K.I.T.T. to compliment the just-revealed B.A. Baracus (Mr. T) and GMC Van from THE A-TEAM. But that's not all that's coming to LEGO Dimensions...

KNIGHT RIDER HEROES - What is it?

It's no secret that KNIGHT RIDER is the greatest television series that the world has, or will ever know. Sure, it may only hold that acclaim here in my own home, but I love KNIGHT RIDER immensely, and hold its star, David Hasselhoff in exceptionally high regard. I've been obsessed with the series ever since its initial run from 1982-1986, and was saddened as a 10-year-old when it went off the air, unceremoniously - without a true send-off or finale (though "The Scent of Roses" should've been aired last, but was not). Various reboots have failed over the years, with none just giving the fans what they really want - Michael Knight and K.I.T.T. in a Pontiac Trans Am. Whenever a hint of something new comes forth, people get anxious - and that's what happened back in May of 2014 when news of something called KNIGHT RIDER HEROES started bubbling. Now, 19 months later, there's a trailer for KNIGHT RIDER HEROES, though we still don't know what it is. It's both exciting and concerning at the same time...
