« 365 Days #8 - Lynn Roberts - Chicken Fat (mp3s) | Main | This Week in Sex: Who keeps the metric system down? »

Thanks Brian. That Boston clip is killer. Talk about "at the height of his powers"---both musically and as a cultural icon so vital that his fans can't bear to not touch him just to see if he's real. This is truly an example of pop culture taking on actual religious proportions----not the erzatz kind generated by hype and smoke machines.

Wonder if there is a better quality, more complete version somewhere.

do you know who won the dance contest?? I like #4 with the knickers best, though I appreciate #5 mightily for jumping straight out of the shot.


Future Shock! Unreal! I used to have almost a full hour of this on VHS (which got lost along the way) and I would give ANYTHING to have a complete set from this show. I've been trying to find it for years.... It's one of the best things that's ever been on TV, it made Soul Train look like an episode of American Bandstand with Donny and Marie Osmond!

On the episode I had, JB had a dance contest which featured the Applause-o-Meterâ„¢ and said something along the lines of "...someday, everyone all over the world will be able to vote from home on the Applause-o-Meter..." thus prophesying: THE INTERNET! :)

With the help of JB's trusted confidant Lee "The Burner" Austin, it was determined that Brother Number Five took it away!

This is the best TV show in the world. Nothing else comes close.


Whoo hoo! Future Shock! Thanks much for this. I only found a little add for the t-shirts on YouTube, and have been dying to see the show. Why this show didn't make it, I cannot fathom. It is funky all the way down.

Holy cow, James Brown's Future Shock is the best adaptation of Alvin Toffler _ever_!


If anyone is out there with Future Shock on tape, for the good of humankind...put it on youtube!!
