The Curse of Michael Myers... Bracket? (213)

I first viewed him him, 30ish years ago;

I was told how funny he was, his confidence, no holding back on snl or a movie with a character. He could play off others or be both on the good side or evil...

Then I saw this... six foot tall cat - with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and... the blackest eyes - the Devil's eyes.

After a few more roles, I spent 8 years hoping he would find the magic again, and then another seven trying to scrub my memory of him, because I realized that what was living behind that man’s eyes was purely and simply... evil.

Now Mac & Gu have been marked with the Druid symbol

Making them Michael’s keepers

Thus beginning…

Weirdest Failed Television Shows (212)

We discuss some of televisions weirdest show pilots that didn't live past one episode.

A TV pilot or pilot episode of a TV show is a standalone episode that a creator or producer will create to show to network executives in Hollywood. Most of the time a network foots the bill for a pilot episode based on the creator's pitch, a description of what the TV show will be like. A pilot episode is used to try to sell an entire series to that network.
