Gemberling

created by  Curtis Gwinn, John Gemberling

Of all the shows in Channel 102's original prime time lineup, "Gemberling" lasted the longest -- a full eight episodes, the final one weighing in at over 17 minutes as a self-cancelling epilogue to the adventure series. A nerd-culture pastiche drawing heavily from "Tron," "Star Wars," and "Troll 2," it was the most dependably funny, best-paced show in 102 history when it ended. It will be fondly remembered by Channel 102's creators and fans. The good news is that there may be some feature-length action for Ken Gemberling in the very near future. "Gemberling" was produced by John Gemberling & Curtis Gwinn.
