Review of "The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs" 3/25/19 by Suzanne
Season One airs on Shudder

My husband and I used to watch Joe Bob's old syndicated show and read his newspaper columns, as well as his newsletter. We were big fans. His "character" is hilarious, or at least, it was. Now we've lived in Texas, and we've had Texans in the White House, and the era of the "macho man" has passed, and his character isn't so funny any more. Perhaps that's why he went away, and now only Shudder will give him a show.

Joe Bob's cowby schtick was always about watching bad horror movies. He used to have these movies on videotape and would send them to his reviewers to write about. Then he would pick some of his favorite reviews for his newsletter. I was one of those reviewers, although I don't think he ever chose any of my reviews.  This was back before Netflix or streaming internet. Mostly, it was before the internet.

His new show on Shudder has him hosting these type of movies and talking about them. Well, it's kind of boring. Sorry, Joe Bob! I love you, but you're boring. The movies are terrible (which is kind of the point). Shudder is a streaming horror service. Unless you're a big Joe Bob fan, I wouldn't bother watching this series, though.


‘THE LAST DRIVE-IN WITH JOE BOB BRIGGS’ SERIES TO PREMIERE MARCH 29 ON SHUDDER Series Features Weekly Double Features, Surprise Special Guests

FEBRUARY 28, 2019 — ​Proving once again that “the drive-in will never die,” iconic horror host and  exploitation movie aficionado Joe Bob Briggs is back with an all-new ​The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs series exclusively on Shudder, the AMC Networks premium streaming service for  horror, thrillers, and the supernatural announced today. The nine-episode original series will consist  of weekly double features streaming live every Friday night at 9:00 p.m ET/ 6:00 p.m. PT, beginning  March 29 and concluding on Friday, May 24, Memorial Day Weekend. Each episode will also be  made available on demand at a later time. The Last Drive-In series marks Briggs return to weekly  on-screen appearances for the first time since ending his run on TNT’s​ MonsterVision in 2000.

“We’ve had ​The Last Drive-In 24-hour marathon, ​The Last Drive-In Thanksgiving marathon, and The Last Drive-In Christmas marathon, but the Shudder audience kept asking for some kind of  programming that didn’t require sleep deprivation and controlled substances,” said host Joe Bob  Briggs. “The double features we chose for the weekly series range over five decades and include  everything from classics to obscurities to foreign cult offerings, with a handful of guests who have  agreed to play around with us in our Texas trailer park. I don’t want to say we got carried away with  the possibilities here, but we kind of got carried away with the possibilities here.”

The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs series is produced by Matt Manjourides and Justin Martell  and directed by Austin Jennings.


AMC Networks’ Shudder is a premium streaming video service, super-serving fans of all degrees  with the best selection in genre entertainment, covering horror, thrillers and the supernatural.  Shudder’s expanding library of film, TV series, and originals is available in the US, Canada, UK,  Ireland, and Germany on most streaming devices for 4.99/month or 49.99/year.
