The narration sucked meaty balls, but 5 stars for 'ah-ahhh'.

Actually I think the narration is pretty much where it's at.

This isn't doing a very good job of promoting.

Actually, I remember this special. It was made up of summaries of horrible TV pilots that were never picked up. Poochinski came from the same special.

Other pilots included a no-doubt vastly inferior precursor to The Sopranos with a stereotypical 30's-style mafia family, and a show about an evil female supervillain plotting to conquer the world named Madam Sin.

I hated the narrator of this special, but the pilots were grade-A horrible, including Alan Alda finding an invisible baby on his doorstep, Ryan Stiles as a baggage handler robot at LAX in in the year 2194, and the American version of Red Dwarf.

Plus, it was Bette Davis as Madame Sin no less.

I liked watching these "failed pilot" specials, if only to see what was so bad it couldn't get on the air. Like this one pilot about a lawyer who was trained in the way of the samurai, and had to put an end to a real-estate scam involving a fake-earthquake generating machine. Or a trio or so of suburban moms who had side jobs as PI's. Or "high concept" bullshit like this or Poochinski that makes My Mother the Car look dignified.

My Mother the Car had Charles Grodin co-starring in an episode as a whiny husband who was leaving his wife because couldn't cook a proper dinner.

... so he hasn't changed much over the years I suppose.

Even the narrator hates this show

5 for showing the worst idea for TV ever + sparking imagination how the initial pitch went
