Partially an oral history of obscure TV shows, partially an oral version of MST3K, and partially a thorough episode guide, It Was a Thing on TV is an anthology podcast about obscure, forgotten, and odd TV shows, commercials, televised events, and almost anyone and anything else that was on television. For the most part, the subjects we cover are from the United States and Canada. We’re just three guys with a love for television. New episodes are generally every Monday and Thursday, sometimes more often.
We start our look at short-lived shows we loved by looking at one of our favorite series from the 1990s, The Critic. This show bounced around a bit, but had a lengthy life in reruns and even was revived as a brief web series in 2000.
