I still have many of them on VHS from when I was a kid and they aired originally. That one, the Button Box one, the one where Melinda Dillon can stop time with a pendant she found, and the one where the kid gets sick and can telepathically communicate with the girl from Colonial America all made quite an impression on me. I recall them as some of my favorite TV ever. (The Secretary one was a hoot too.)

It has become an inside joke between my brother, my wife, and me (Used to be just my brother and me, but I showed her the episode, just to let her in on it.) that "the blue guys did it" whenever something mysteriously goes missing. Because I swear it's true what the guy says about that!

Need a glass app to warn users based on GPS to take off their glass give them a percentage of getting punched if they continue to wear them.

Not sure this is what Google had in mind when they added this feature to Google Plus.
