  • "Talk Soup" looked at and made fun of the world of TV talk. There was a 30 minute edition daily and the big one hour weekend edition that played Friday through Sunday.

    Talk Soup showed how much fun one could have with a small budget but a lot of immagination. Led by executive producer Alex Duda, the show was never afraid to try anything. Greg was the master and made the show what it was. John picked up the ball and ran with it to bring it to even more comic heights. Aisha did a nice job trying to save the show after the one year Sparks fiasco. The show featured guest appearances from everyone from Dustin Hoffman to Phil Hartman. It featured excellent use of movie trailers, into which they would insert the host or the show's amusing crewmembers: Tom, Perrin, Alan Wu and of course the toast of Argentina, Senor Sock. There was an entire series of "Beach Week" shows in which John Henson pretended to do the show from the beach, (which was merely projected on the green screen behind him) and welcomed guests like Dawn Wells, Ed Asner, Tab Hunter, Frankie Avalon and Donna D'Errico. A "talk Soup in Space" show featured Dr. Smith and the robot as well as the guys from MST3000. There was a quote of the week, a clip of the week and a letter segment. The show won an Emmy for Best Special Class Program in 1995.
    It was a great experience!
