Gadhafi's Death Predicted By 80s Sitcom (Video)
The public should have paid closer attention to one-season show Second Chance when it aired during the 1987-1988 season.
Apparently the show could see into the future.
The sitcom, which was Matthew Perry's first foray into television, featured a now slightly-eerie caricature of Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi, who was captured and killed in Sirte, Libya, it was announced Thursday.
Second Chance, which was cancelled after just one season's run, opened in Saint Peter's Office on the then-future day of July 29, 2011. Characters' lives were judged to determine whether or not they were going to heaven or hell.
Gadhafi, was the second to be judged, was told he was "quite dead, completely dead" before trying to kill St. Peter with a machine gun, before the Saint retorted "you never could take a joke." He was then sent to hell, where he was sentenced to spent eternity wired as a human bomb, blowing up every two minutes.
So, to recap. Second Chances, a one-season show made in 1987, predicted that Gadhafi would die July 29, 2011. They got the day wrong, but the year is right on.
