Check Out the Weird TV Shows You Won’t Believe Actually Got Made.

Consider this:  Greenlighting a TV show takes many steps and invovles many people. First, there are the people who come up with the premise and create the characters and the pilot script. Then there are the studio folk who agree to produce it, and the networks who agree to distribute it. That’s a lot of people. There are so many steps, it’s hard to believe that terrible ideas actually make it to your living room. These 10 bizarre shows were all flops, but they’re still kind of amazing. 1. My Mother…

In The Water, It’s A Fireworm, But On Land? It’s Pure Nope!

I don’t think it’s controversial to say that ocean-dwelling creatures are pretty much the worst. Sure, on land we have spiders and rabid animals, but those things that inhabit the deep sea are so creepy, especially when you consider just how little we know about them. One critter that we do know a bit about is the innocent-sounding bearded fireworm. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); The bearded fireworm is a kind of marine bristleworm native to the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea.

For the 2014 Sculpture By The Sea event, a Belgian artist named Annette Thas created something that makes passers by stop and stare. Her creation is a gigantic, fleshy wave that seems to be rising up from the sand. It stands 9 feet tall and it is 12 feet long. If you were to sit at its base, it would almost envelop you with its sheer size. Not only is it huge, but there is another reason why anyone who passes by just has to stop and do a double-take… The…

I remember getting really creeped out by some of the movies I watched as a kid, and I had previously chalked my fear up to the same reason. However, as I’ve revisited a few of the TV shows and films that I used to love so much, I’ve realized that my…

Could This Footage Be Proof That Bigfoot Actually Exists? We’ll Let You Be The Judge

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); When a camera was mounted to a tree near Platte River State Fish Hatchery, it was only meant to broadcast the inside of a bald eagle’s nest. But the live cam set up by Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources captured much more than baby eaglets — in fact, people even believe that its footage is proof of the existence of a mythological animal. About 30 miles away from Traverse City, Michigan, the CarbonTV Eagle Cam picked up a dark, tall figure walking upright on the ground…
