It Was a Thing on TV Twin Pack: Episodes 151 & 152: The Nerd (1989)/The Amazing Screw-On Head (2006)

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?

It Was a Thing on TV Twin Pack: Episodes 149 & 150 - Legends of the Superheroes/Not Another High School Show

This week on It Was a Thing on TV we have a very star-studded drop for you here on Place to be Nation.
 
First, in honor of Zack Snyder's Justice League dropping on HBO Max we look at the 1979 DC/Hanna-Barbara offering Legends of the Superheroes. It was like Superfriends became a live action show with a horrible laugh track.  If you thought the laugh track was bad, wait until you hear about the production values.
 
Then, we begin Pilot Month 2021 in our 150th Episode. A favorite movie of ours from 2001 was Not Another Teen Movie.  So what happened when Comedy Central tried bringing it to the small screen six years later?  It was an unorganized mess which was nowhere as entertaining as the movie.  One plus is it had numerous stars, in 2007 and in the future.
