  Bizarre (TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bizarre was a weekly 1980s Canadian TV sketch comedy series.
The series contained slapstick sketches, monologues, TV parodies, and performances by guest stand-up comics.
The versions that aired on CTV (and later in syndication) had the nudity removed and the language bleeped by a horn-honking sound.

 Smallville (TV series) - TvWiki, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The series often deals with the people in Clark Kent's life: his adoptive human parents, Jonathan Kent and Martha Kent; his peers, Chloe Sullivan, Pete Ross; his love interest, Lana Lang; and especially his friendship with a young Lex Luthor.
The element of Kryptonite is used as a recurring plot device throughout the series.
Kryptonite is shown to have bizarre and lingering effects on human physiology and the young superhero often has to fight meteor-rock mutated villains who have developed weird powers, such as psychic abilities, shape-shifting abilities, and other paranormal abilities.

Watch one episode of John Byner's Bizarre and you'll think that it is a mildly amusing sketch show from the early eighties.
Watch two episodes of Bizarre and you think you are watching a rerun of the first one you saw.

The original 1977 TV series was deemed so disturbing that it was pulled from transmission and not broadcast until 1991, and the equally notorious 1979 film version was the target of a campaign by Mary Whitehouse.
Later series broadened the show’s horizons until at last its premise was so diluted as to be unrecognisable, but in the earlier episodes contained in this box set the comedy is witty and intimate, focusing on characters and not special effects.
Now on its second, critically acclaimed series (Mondays 10pm BBC2), Early Doors is set in The Grapes, a small pub in Manchester where daily life is bound up in the issues of love, loneliness, and blocked urinals.

 Night Court [TV Series] - Synopsis - Moviefone
During the series' first season, Paula Kelly was seen as legal-aid defense lawyer Liz Williams, who was alternately appalled and fascinated by Harry's unorthodox tactics; Karen Austin also appeared as court clerk Lana Wagner, who harbored a not-so-secret crush on Harry.
The actress' replacement, Florence Halop as Florence Kleiner, likewise passed away after only a short time on the series; she in turn was replaced by Marsha Warfield as Roz Russell, a character who stayed in place until the series' own demise.
The final episode of Night Court, which set something of a record for the number of bizarre, surrealistic incidents occurring within a single half-hour, was broadcast on July 1, 1992.

 Has reality TV claimed the water cooler crowd?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The notion that some television series gain such cultural currency that they become "water cooler" shows has become so ubiquitous that HBO even airs a jokey promotional spot about the phenomenon.
Actually, the changing nature of the water cooler probably results from a triple threat: Cable, reality TV and the Internet all emerged to spike the water cooler as we've known it.
Tim Brooks, co-author of "The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows" ($27.95, Ballantine) and executive vice president of research at Lifetime, said the advent of cable not only diluted the water cooler effect but also changed the nature of how people watch TV.

Although the Vampire Princess Miyu TV series is a follow-up to the OAVs, it does not really pick up where the other left off.
Larva's more active involvement in the series is a definite plus for bishounen fans such as myself, since we get to see a lot of his handsome face throughout.

 On the Tube: 'Tremors' series kills the camp
At least that was the appeal of the campy "Tremors" series of movies that began in 1990.
With "Tremors," the special effects have always been cheap and the appeal, such as it is, came from the campy humor, particularly concerning the Burt Gummer character.
But the TV series, from the same creators and writers as the movies, mostly plays it straight.

Sutherland, at the peak of his moviestardom, agreed to do this CBC TV movie out of his fascination with the title figure...a fascination that saw him play the role before, in Witness to Yesterday, and subsequently in Bethune: The Making of a Hero.
