Children of the 80's Rejoice! DR RUTH IS BACK!!!



Night Flight is excited to announce the addition of sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer's video library to our Night Flight Plus channel. Night Flight Plus is a new streaming channel from the original creator of the cult USA Networks '80s classic Night Flight. Subscribers get access to original Night Flight TV episodes in their airdate form, plus an excellent selection of music documentaries, cult, horror, and more, available on Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Online. Like long-lost siblings of 1980s late night TV, Night Flight and Dr. Ruth are together at last with the start of a collection of vintage episodes that are streaming right now.

Like long-lost siblings of 1980s late night TV, Night Flight and Dr. Ruth are together at last with the start of a collection of vintage episodes that are streaming right now.

Dr. Ruth's shows are known for their mix of on-air therapy sessions and candid celebrity interviews. We preserved these 12 episodes in their original format, so you'll get the full Ruth experience. For our first batch, we bring you Jerry Seinfeld, LL Cool J, Burt Reynolds, Anthrax, Gloria Steinem and more...

The first batch of episodes highlights the diversity of Dr. Ruth's programming. From the very popular mid '80s program "Good Sex with Dr. Ruth," to 1989's teen advice show "What's Up Dr. Ruth," you'll get the feel for Dr Ruth's signature formats and style.

In these episodes, you'll see Ruth answer letters on the air, stage short therapy sessions with troubled couples in studio, and answer phone calls from the TV audience watching at home. There are other surprises now and then too, but you'll just have to watch the episodes to see what happens.

Online publications deal in the same eye-catching tabloid headlines that were once exclusive to rags like WEEKLY WORLD NEWS and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER. The monetization of clicks is ruining many forms of journalism and film criticism is just one of them. When organizations can see what headlines are generating revenue its only natural that sensationalism would start to rise. There is no consorted hivemind like conspiracy to destroy certain films but rather internet activity that has boosted a certain type of writer. From the outside, online film critics share quite a bit with their Twitter troll counterparts.

The critical response to John Travolta's passion project Gotti has been less than favorable, in fact, it has been downright abysmal. A project over ten years in the making, Travolta has poured his heart and soul into this venture. And many writers seem to take pleasure in the film's failure.

NO ALTERNATIVE review

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.
