Tiny Doom reference

Recommended Posts

I was looking through some old tapes from the 90s, and I came across an episode of a weird Canadian show called 'Red Green'. The premise of the show doesn't really matter for this, but the episode I found was about the show being sold to Sweden. There was a scene where the broadcasters sent them some gifts, including a Swiss army knife. The nerdy one (Harold) started going through an exaggerated list of all the crud that was packed inside it, and if you skip about 3/4 of the way through the clip, you'll find a reference to a certain game you probably know about.

Nothing special, just felt like sharing this.

This show is anything but obscure in Canada. Well, as long as you're over 25 I guess.

The Red Green show was one of the few shows that played on TV back when I was living in Marquette Michigan. Ah yes back in the days when there were only 3 channels that you could watch on TV.

Again not tiny really but Doom was featured I the UK Channel 4 show 'How Video Games Changed the World'. The format of the show was a list of the 25 most influencial games in order of release and Doom got its own segment complete with a little talking heads snippet with John Romero (Doom would have been in third person perspective if the engine would have allowed it apparently).

Anyone else see this?

Michigander here, I remember that my grandma used to watch it back when I was 6.

Yeah, I did. Looks like Romero's been at the pies.

I thought it was a great show. I'd heard about it before I watched it (at a friend's on some TV-on-demand thing; I don't watch television myself, so the means aren't available at my place - bar Internet streaming) and it was supposed to be terrible. I don't know, I think people just wanted to see their favourite games included. A few of these were quite incisive too.
