"The year is nineteen ninety-nine."
We've all watched some bizarre things on TV before, but nothing quite compared to what this author saw on a local access channel when he was a young kid.
He explains that his dad bought him his own TV in 1999, but it only had 20 channels on it. Curious, he punched in 21 on the remote and it played three (later revealed to be five) shows that looked obviously low-budget and all shot in the same basement. The first was about a hand named Booby who would be in an unusual situation every time, another was called Soup And Spoon, which doesn't get much attention. The most prominent and creepy one, however, is called Mr. Bear's Cellar.
Mr. Bear's Cellar (and the obviously affiliated shows) were linked to the disappearance of many children, and the author may have been one had the police not gotten there before him. He then spends time trying to figure out more about the bizarre and twisted programs, even corresponding with someone who may or may not be Mr. Bear himself.
What makes this pasta such a good read is that it's not terribly farfetched, giving a good sense of credibility and adds to the overall creepy factor. It's decently long, and in fact is still being written to this day; when the author finds out more, he leaves a new post with new information regarding Mr. Bear or the other programs.
It's definitely worth a read, but does contain some graphic and violent imagery. Read at your own risk.
