Too bad Michael J. Fox has Parkinson's. He could have guest appearances as Burt's republican yuppie son.

Hopefully the show is better than Tremors III which I found to be very disappointing. I mean come on, how many gun nuts only carry 1 gun? How many gun nuts have zero guns in their secure room?

Isn't Michael Gross a huge anti-gun zealot in real life?

I think that's all show for the Hollywood crowd. When he plays Burt, you get to see the side of him he wouldn't dare show in real life.

NEver saw tremors 3, but i think they should have stopped after 1 :) 1 was fine.. 2 got campy and i'm betting 3 is like a tent in a city.

The best part of Tremors was watching little tiny Reba with all that heavy hardware.
Link Posted: 9/7/2002 8:38:44 AM EDT
It's about damn time. They make a series outa alot of BS movies. Finaly a good one. As long as Burt is the same it'll be worth watchin'. [50] [heavy][pistol][shotgun][sniper][uzi] [whacko]

I loved the name they gave the creatures in Tremors3. ASS BLASTERS. When the girl blew one up in the trailer, that line was funny as hell.
Hah, blast your own damn ass, ass blaster!

I really wish we could find out the straight scoop on Michael Gross. No one seems to know for sure.

Both Tremors 2 and Tremors 3 were on heavy rotation today on the SciFi channel. Played both of them 2 times. Tremors 3 is freaking hillarious if you manage to get a decent buzz. Tremors 1 had a fair amount of Burt, Tremors 2 seemed to cut back on the Burt a little bit, then in Tremors 3 they gave ya about all the Burt you could stand and then tossed in a little more for good measure.

I thought that part was freaking hilarious.

I saw the same BS on the SCi/Fi channel also. Tremors 1 was pretty good, and 2 & 3 kinda okay, nothing to write home about. In the entertainment world, the actor's/actress' personal philosophy & beliefs may or may not reflect to their own personal opinion in real life; for them, it is like us who work for anti-gun company....well its a living.

Michael Gross [b]GREATLY[/b] enjoyed firing the Quad Fitty in Tremors III, from what he said on the DVD..... Scott

From Tremors III: Bert: And people call me paranoid. Miguel: I don't...(whispers) anymore. This is right after the Feds move in to "protect" the Graboids because they are an endangered species..... Scott

When they had tremors 2 on the scifi channel, why did they edit out burt saying: "I knew she wasn't coming back when she told me to send the HK91."? It is in the scene when he drives up in the truck and right before he shows the double rifle.

I love the tremors movies, mainly because of the Burt character. Without him they would just be another lameass b-grade horror movie. As it is they are b-grade horror movies with soul. Can't wait for the series, during the 2nd and 3rd movies the other night they ran a couple adds for the series. One has Burt blasting away with what looks like a M4gery (didn't get a good look, obviously an AR of some kind) and someone else handling a nice looking AK. And that shot above with the Barrett is from the series, certainly has the ingredients to be sweet.... Hopefully they won't screw it up, I will be really disappointed if so... Here's the official site for the series: [url]http://www.scifi.com/tremors/[/url]

In tremorsIII my favorate part was in the beginning with Burt on the DUAL 50. If you look close it is only a dual not a quad. Without that character it isn't worth watching "I feel that I was not given urgent need to know information" "for the first time in my life...I am out of ammo" SorryOciffer
