QIF's first season comes to a close with the first truly Quaidy property on the man's c.v. -- 1979's Breaking Away, a minor classic I had trouble reviewing, because I've seen it so many times, it's like a family member. Old friends, new beginnings, the correct pronunciation of "REFUND?!", and the M and LVPs of Season 1 in an all-new Quaid In Full. Fill an ashtray with cat food and have a listen!

It's another TV movie as we enter the homestretch of QIF's first season: Amateur Night At The Dixie Bar And Grill, a surprisingly watchable Nashville knockoff starring not just Dennis Quaid but Don Johnson, Pinky Tuscadero, Isaiah Edwards from Little House, and...Kyle Richards?

A uninteresting and deeply problematic TV movie with a horror-movie shell and an Afterschool Special center, Are You In The House Alone? introduces me to the concept of the Un-Quaidy Valley -- and introduces the rest of the world to David Keith. Schoolyard doowop, a brawl in an art-supplies closet, a visit to the Oversight Committee on the occasion of Mr. Quaid's engagement, and more!

Time Out London called it a "satire of sorts" -- but what exactly is college-sex-clinic proto-Risky Business romp The Seniors satirizing -- capitalism? women's lib? shaggin' wagons? What it's not doing is holding my interest very well, but if you'd like to consume a parade of naked breasts AND rockin' late-seventies boot style, this is the forgotten flick for you. I would tell you to grab a six-pack, but Dennis Quaid's got that covered, bless his heart.

Quaid returns to period pieces in Our Winning Season, not that you'd necessarily know from the production. This failed attempt to combine a Porky's-esque sex farce with a high-school-sports roman a clef AND the blight of Vietnam isn't so much bad as airless and dull, and on top of that, it's both not very Quaidy and TOO Quaidy somehow.

It's the most expensive, least worth-it Baretta episode in history: Season 4, Episode 4, "The Sky Is Falling," which stars Barry Miller as a beset teenage prostitute, Dennis Quaid as his pimp, and a lot of '70s ideas about who's considered a victim. Oh, and an uneven distribution of AAAAACKTING! that may shortchange Dennis Quaid. Television curator at the Paley Center David Bushman joins me to discuss bad '70s pacing, ideal casting for Quaid, whether such a dark role on episodic TV could have hurt Quaid's career, and more.

I'm completing the DQ-early-roles 1970s-contemplate-the-1950s trilogy with September 30, 1955, an achingly adolescent meditation on how the death of James Dean allowed John Boy Walton to feel his own losses...or something. James Bridges's (The Paper Chase, Perfect) melodramatic tale of a tragic afternoon isn't entirely successful, but it does bring us a Breaking Away pre-union AND our first Dennis Quaid sex growl.

It's Dennis Quaid's first role...with actual lines! Still not a full wardrobe, though, as he's shirtless -- but how does a pitcher named Shark fit into 1976 mental-illness drama I Never Promised You A Rose Garden? An Apollo 13 reunion, Kenickie in beads, and much more in this slightly Quaidier second episode.

Episode 1: Crazy Mama

Episode 1: Crazy Mama

2019-09-1307:33

It's Dennis Quaid's first role: 1975's Crazy Mama, a Julie Corman/Jonathan Demme outlaw-action drive-in joint that's quite charming, thanks in part to 1) Ann Sothern and 2) Quaid not wearing drawers under his bellman rig. What's going on with this throuple Donny Most is in? Was that Bill Paxton? And most importantly, how Quaidy is it?
