a funny little show that was doomed by it's time-slot.
21 December 2007 | by lachtnaSee all my reviews

I had been shopping for a Christmas present and saw the television "20 Q" and knew I could stump the game with this show.

It was referred to as the "thinking mans Gilligan's Island" but couldn't be really referred to as that because it wasn't a thinking show but rather a funny take on a very unfunny subject, nuclear annihilation and how people who are forced into living together to survive learn to live with each other.

It was a funny little show that had a BAD time slot (Sunday morning 12:30am here) and therefore was doomed from the start.

The final episode that aired was the Christmas episode and the other episodes of the short-lived show never aired.

Our loss, it was a half hour show to just get away from your problems and think about nothing.
