For Your Batty Consideration: High School U.S.A (1984)

This season's listener-voted episode was High School U.S.A., which beat out 3 other teen-centric 1980s TV movies, possibly due to its all-star cast. The movie blends the 'stars of the future" with the stars of, er, yesterday, throwing in a lot of familiar veteran TV faces. Our listeners knew what they were doing! This movie is a fun watch and gives us plenty to discuss on the podcast: Robots, cars, TEEN HIJINKS, and more!

Anonymous Batty Insider says: "This one could be a big player at the Battys. It has potential in numerous categories, and the huge cast with all the familiar faces means it could really flood the acting categories. On the other hand, you could see a narrative with people thinking, oh, this already won just by being selected by the listeners. I don't know about that, but it's a possibility. I'd expect this to lead in nominations and maybe sneak in a few wins."
