The twins were in Terminator 2 as a guard & the T1000 just turn into the same guard & just before killing him with a very pointy finger.

I used to watch Eerie Indiana all the time, that was the one with Omri Katz in, and the guy who used to play Gomez Addams in the original TV series (John Astin I think?) right?

I remember one of the episodes being a spin on Stephen King's 'The Langoliers' short story, where he slipped a few seconds behind everyone else and met himself when he was older, as a garbage man clearing up what was left of the world after time had passed it by. Very surreal, but compulsive viewing.

I used to love this show! Like an X-Files for kids before the X-Files? The title sequence was cool... the basketball team walking down the street all bouncing the balls in unison

That was so awesome,,.

remember the episode about the kid who was being brainwashed by backward messages in his punk albums, and it turned out the messages were his strict dads lectures? That was bizzare. I liked the one where the boy was alone in the town and everyone had gone and he didnt know why.
