Rick mentions that the Beefy Boy is closing early, and the owner never comes in since "the shooting". This is a reference to season one, episode two, "It's a Miserable Life", in which the employee (who is the owner's son) is shot at the drive-thru during his nightmare. See more »

Help, Harry! Harry! Harry!

Shut up, bitch! He can't hear you.
I beg your pardon?

Nothing. I was talking to myself.

I remember being a kid and seeing commercials for this show but, since it was on late at night, I never had the pleasure of watching it. Chiller TV ran marathons of this 7 or 8 years ago and, being the low budget, schlock loving individual that I am, came to enjoy this series greatly.
Season one shines far brighter than season two with episodes such as "It's A Miserable Life", "Sister's Keeper", "Do Dreams Bleed" and "Identity Crisis" standing out amongst the pack. Almost all of the episodes are cheesy as all get-out but still just kind of have that weird 80's vibe compounded by random and bizarre stories that make them enjoyable nonetheless.
I'd love to see this series get a full release on video. It's a classic among schlock mongers and utilizes standard 80's stereotypes that would likely be considered weird by those born long after the series originally aired.
