    Like a lot of movies...

    Scanners was a whole lot better in my memory than it was when I saw it again after many years. However, exploding heads still rule.

    Scanners as a TV show could be an amazing sleeper hit..

    by yamayama

    Scanners has a TV show could be something really unique and fresh. This has all the hallmarks of a David Lynch type show if done in an understated fashion. The gore would have to be kept. And the strangeness factor could be ramped up with the scanners being used by the government to fight satanists and aliens of all weird persuasions. The only reference points i would have to compare is the manga series "Wicked City" and the BBC's The Omega Factor from the early 1970's.
