Deadspin: Please Enjoy(?) 21 Years Of Joe Buck Hyping Forgotten Fox Shows

Matthew Callan deserves hazard pay for compiling this video of the last 21 seasons of Joe Buck doing postseason promo reads for Fox’s fall lineups.

Her father. Is. The District. Attorney.

I liked Roar, but I'm a sucker for swords and sorcery.

I seem to remember Happy Hour being pretty funny.

But the most terrifying thing in the whole clip happens at 2:32. I won't spoil the surprise.

I am glad to see Buck played a crucial part in tracking down Osama Bin Laden.

America's Most Wanted Terrorists? Hah.

And I remember Living in Captivity. A truly awful show.

EDIT: And Joe seems to be majorly crushing on Zooey Deschanel. I bet Mrs. Buck was none too happy.

Missing some of the classics, but you have to like the mention of Girls Bluc.

Also, that was 2002? We are all so old.

I did miss House in there - I can't believe nowhere in this promo package did I risk a patient's life.

EDIT: Also, no one's father was the district attorney.

The Good Guys was pretty funny.

Christ that's a lot of bad shows.

Girls Bluc!

That one sticks with me the most. You see a lot of post-season baseball commercials when your team finally wins its first and only world series championship.

This is ####### tremendous. 1,000 points to the internet!

Her father's the DISTRICT ATTORNEY!

And... coke to the lead-in.

I couldnt make it past the halfway mark. Just too much buck.

If someone ever compiles a montage of Joe Buck saying "This is going to be fun," I'll finally have a soundtrack to my shotgun suicide.

Hey Dark Angel was pretty good. Then again I’m a sucker for Jessica Alba.

We're 13 posts in and no one has pointed out that his father is the district attorney.

It was an OK genre show. And yes Ms. Alba is very fetching.

Man memory if funny. But yup, it is his father.

The Tigers actually appeared in two World Series in this timeframe, but you sure as hell can't tell by watching these clips.

He transitioned between then and now.

Hey Dark Angel was pretty good.


The first season was pretty good, and, as Mouse says, Jessica Alba is...yeah.

Not much of an actress, but she's got really good tangibles.
   20. Meatwad Posted: October 22, 2017 at 02:25 AM (#5560044)
Ichiro would have good ta gibles if he wanted to.

Buck called it "the most politically incorrect comedy of the season!" Ninety-nine percent of self-described "politically incorrect" entertainment is tedious to sit through.
