    Default The Scariest Show on Television ...

    ... has got to be "How Clean Is Your House?" on BBC-America. O-M-G! The rural couple whose kitchen floor was occluded by accreted layers of goat crap was pretty bad. Handy tips for cleaning, though. Sour milk polishes brass?
    I think there's a marathon of HCIYH? on Sunday.

    Some episodes of the original Outer Limits to me was scary. Even one episode of Gilligan's Island was kind of scary for one brief scene.

    So how do they scout out these places? Am I to expect a knock at the door? ARGH!

    I've not seen this show but there's another show with the same theme, I think, on the Style Network called "Clean House". It's hosted by a totally wacky lady, Niecy the style diva! She cracks me up. The filth that people live in doesn't!

    Twilight Zone. Even the series' theme music was scary. Rod Serling was the perfect host.

    Sunset Tans on E!

    I thought the people they feature on Dr. 90210 was bad, but some of the people on Sunset Tans are just downright scary.

    I'm taking this thread literally, not figuratively. The scariest show on television was the original version of "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" which came out in the mid 1970's (not to be confused with the remake, which had its debut on Fox in 2005).

    The one where a Latin American dictator comes to the island. It's at the end of the dream sequence where the dictator is using puppet strings on Gilligan, that is the scary part for me.

    The X-Files episode called 'Home'. It was even banned in certain parts of the U.S.

    Night Gallery, another Rod Serling production, was often pretty scary.

    And the paintings they featured for each episode's segment were cool.

    Unfortunately I got a real life version of this when I got back after my son and his girlfriend were living here all summer. I guess it could have been worse. But I did have to scrub the bathroom and pull out a bagfull of hair from the vacuum before I could vacuum the rug - after a 12 hour flight!

    Scary? are we joking about this, or serious?

    Well, wife swap is pretty scary and I say that for this reason. It is downright scary to think there are families really LIKE some of them, that they drive right next to us, and can even vote!
