12 Canceled Sci-Fi Shows Wishing for a Second Chance

It should have been a great idea. With the success of “Tales From the Crypt”, based on the old EC horror comic of the same name (and others), producer Gilbert Adler and executive producers Richard Donner, Walter Hill, Joel Silver and Robert Zemeckis attempted to use the same format on similar EC sci-fi comics. With a cast that includes Jeffrey Combs, Vincent Schiavelli, William Shatner, David Warner and Chris Sarandon, what could possibly happen?

Arguably, the presentation was the problem. Using the comic’s original name, “Strange Science,” is no problem, since a movie and a TV show by that name already exists. “Perversions of Science” implies something else, especially as one of the first episodes involves Kevin Pollak getting his private possessions trapped in a sexbot. Instead of Crypt Keeper making Halloween puns, the host is a dominating cyborg named Chrome who makes sexual innuendos (and seems to have lived on). molecular level of popcorn kernels). It’s not that there’s no room for geeky sci-fi, it’s just that EC comics aren’t. They could be a great resource for an anthology show again if someone wants to try a more honest, unspoiled version of “Heavy Metal”.
