Pilot Month 2021 continues on It Was a Thing on TV as the gang looks at two very weird pilots that will have you saying WTF?
First, we start with a show submitted just based on its ridiculous open. It may have been the most entertaining part of The Nerd, a pilot for NBC done in 1989 which aired on the network. It didn’t air in 1989, though.
Then, it’s time for some revisionist history on a sci-fi channel with The Amazing Screw-On Head. A star-studded cast couldn’t get this out of pilot stage. Maybe it was ahead of its time?
