  • this was unintentionally funny too. I have never watched it before this so it was a good one to start with.

    I started watching and knew it had to be a joke with the judgement day, because it was so cheesy, and then when they had the whole "running man" which was a decent movie I was like obviously it's a joke. I noticed then that the chick who played the sister seeking revenge was Molly Ringwald I was like whaat. I then saw the opening credits and realized it was part of a different show and that was just that episode like a Quantom Leap or Alfred Hitchcock type of show. It was pretty funny eventhough I'm not sure if it was supposed to be, the cheesiness really made me laugh though.

    I just watched some of the rest with Chris Elliot and the whole thing with the eye so I have to go back and lower my score for the show. Chris Elliot is OK on this show so far but some of the eye thing made the show even more out there, and not in a good way.moreless

  • NOTES (0)


    • This episode bears a very close resemblance to the "Sliders" episode "Dead Man Sliding" that aired November 29, 1996. In that particular world the Sliders arrived in, public canings were applied for infractions like spray painting, but more serious crimes put criminals on TV game shows like 'Justice Tonight' and 'The Judgment Game'. Essentially, a world so enamored with watching another person sentence to die turned it into a game show complete with audience participation.
