A podcast about all things weird (but mostly weird, obscure TV shows).

Jun 24, 2024

No one demanded it but we're here nonetheless to celebrate a momentous occasion: the 41st anniversary of the original broadcast date (June 23, 1983) of the absolutely bonkers failed TV pilot Wishman! 

When you hear the name Wishman, do you immediately think of a wish-granting genie? We did too, but oh how we were wrong. Instead we are presented with a bizarre Mac & Me-esque creature, with big eyes and gurgling vocals, who can control electricity when the plot dictates it. He's also a big pervert who likes spying on women in the shower and watching his adopted parents makeout. 

We also get early hacking and A.I., a busy dad who doesn't appreciate his son's skateboarding skills, and the beautiful sight of a limp doll body being shoved in a giant sack of dog food. 

And thanks to the generosity of Eternal Family (a site that we may have dreamed up) you too can enjoy this very misguided episode of television for free right now
