Nostalgic Twitter Thread On Wild, Obscure, And Cursed TV Shows

Some of these television programs give off straight up fever dream vibes. Seriously, I'd imagine that some of these shows were aired at very unique times. Maybe during those early hours of the morning where you might find yourself caught in a dreamlike state, unable to fall back asleep, and watching whatever you can find on TV. So, naturally you settle on a promising TV show like Snorks. 

A nostalgic Twitter thread about the obscure TV shows that people remember.

Gotta thank NCIS for this wonderful television moment. Sure, we're not expert hackers either, but we know that stopping a hacking attempt is more complicated than throwing as many hands at the keyboard as possible and making it go clickity clack. It's not a piano. And who knew the unstoppable defense against hacking was simply unplugging your monitor?

People Share Their Reality Dating Show Insider Knowledge

It shouldn't come as surprise that so called "reality" television is scripted and often fortified with liquor and actors to drum up the drama. And people involved have to sign so many NDAs that it can be difficult to get the scoop. A peak behind the production veil can result in disenchantment or sobering confirmation depending on your opinion of the genre. But hey, that's the true nature of what reality and game show tapings are like.

Isn't it just the worst when your doctor calls you out for being "disobedient"? No idea how that ended up being this kid's answer, but we can all blurt out nonsensical, wild things when under extreme amounts of pressure.

What Reality and Game Show Tapings Are Like

Everyone knows that game shows and reality TV aren't as action packed as they're edited to seem, but some shows have different interesting quirks and things the average TV viewer wouldn't notice. Other than getting to talk to famous hosts and all the game show blunders, it's a weird reminder that the whole thing is a business.

This guy shows the world what it looks like when one has no game, and instead proceeds to make a toxic mess of everything else around them. Legend goes that he's still in the hole that he dug himself.

Moments of Cartoon Logic that Make Perfect Sense

It's hard to cover up every plot hole of a cartoon that is by definition supposed to not make sense anyway. Some of these are delivered with a wink and a nod by the creators themselves, and others just kinda seem lazy. Sometimes it goes deeper, like how Tumblr explained that the Power Puff Girls are supposed to be freaky handless monsters.

It's stuff like this, the particular way Trebek puts so much effort into saying the word "genre" that makes us like him. Also because Alex Trebek can be savage.
