“The Show That Dares to Expose Crime
As It Really Is—Very Unpleasant”

I don’t remember ever watching Danger Theatre, a 1993 FOX-TV anthology series—hosted by The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’s Robert Vaughn—that lasted a mere seven episodes. But according to Wikipedia, its half-hour installments featured two separate stories, “each a spoof of a familiar action/anthology format. The style of the comedy was somewhat similar to that of films like Airplane! and TV shows like Police Squad!” What brings this forgotten program to mind is my discovery, on YouTube, of Danger Theatre’s first two installments, which you can see here and here.
