Seeing Things This Halloween


YouTube user Retrontario frequently uploads fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems.  These clips never fail to bring back a ton of memories for me, so I feature them from time to time.

Back in 1983, there was only one way to celebrate Halloween.  You stayed home and watched Seeing Things on CBC.

Seeing Things aired on CBC Television from 1981 to 1987 and starred Louis Del Grande as Louis Ciccone, a newspaper journalist who solves murders with the help of his ability to see postcognitive visions.  Del Grande had a pretty good career going, having written for King of Kensington before writing and starring in Seeing Things.  Then, he just disappeared.

Now that's scary.
