99 Words About … The schlocky joys of the El Rey Network


You could argue the world didn’t need “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.”

And you would win that argument.

But the pulpy drama with a B-movie aesthetic has been surprisingly entertaining.

See for yourself as the first nine episodes are marathoned at 9 a.m. Sunday ahead of the finale at 6 p.m. Tuesday on Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey Network.

It’s a fun little channel, specializing in grindhouse, kung fu movies and “Starsky & Hutch” reruns.

Even its promos have a drive-in vibe.

Here’s hoping it gets schlockier still and drops the five-hour “X-Files” blocks for even more cheesy goodness.
