Purgatory

created by  Tony Carnevale

For three episodes, it was a naturalistic, quiet show about a man who's brought back from the dead by Satan to seduce married women into a life of adultery. But after episode three brought the series to the brink of cancellation, creator Tony Carnevale made a gutsy choice to make a "mid-season" replacement with the decidely non-slow-paced Space Guidos. Which totally bombed.

Episode 4

Forget Purgatory! "Mid-season replacement" Space Guidos tries to keep Purgatory's momentum going... and despite an impressive step up in visual effects and an equally impressive set of wigs, does not. Thus does Purgatory descend into limbo. I said it.
