This is a little bit of a departure from our usual show- but MeTV was given this rare opportunity to show the rejected original pilot in full-color form, in which it has never been aired. Please note that this is a one-time only showing- and, is NOT planned to be repeated for our local Chicago viewers the following Saturday on our sister station, WCIU.
“The Cage” starts at 10 pm eastern/pacific, 9 central, or check your local listings for channel and time where you are (or , check that at www.metv.com). Our Chicago viewers get a second look at the “Frozen Ghost” (with the premiere version of the “Svengoolie Stomp”) at 11 am on WCIU.
I'm so desperate to see this I asked a co-worker who has an antenna and a VCR to record it for me! If anybody has a way to record this digitally and would like to share a copy with me that would kick butt!
