Matthew Perry Sitcom 'Second Chance' Predicted Gaddafi Would Die in 2011

Did a cheesy 1987 Matthew Perry sitcom predict that Muammar Gaddafi would be killed in 2011? A Reddit thread pointed out the wild 'Second Chance' coincidence after the Libyan dictator was killed in Sirte.

In the Fox show, which was set in 2011, the main character Charles, played by Kiel Martin, dies in a hovercraft accident, and after meeting St. Peter at the gates of heaven, is judged to be neither good enough for heaven or bad enough for hell. He's sent back to earth to help his teenage self, played by Matthew Perry, to live a more virtuous life.

But right before the scene in the pilot where Martin meets St. Peter, guess who else pays him a visit? None other than Colonel Gaddafi, with his trademark fatigues riddled with bullet holes. "Dead? It is impossible for me to be dead," the fictional Gaddafi says, before St. Peter sentences him to spend eternity in hell. It's a delightfully corny and really weird scene.

The Qaddafi portion starts at approximately 2:20:

Big deal. They "predicted" he'd die. Everyone does eventually.

All right people. It clearly says "St. Peters Office. July 29 2011" Stop saying there is no date.

Umm... that didn't say anything about it being in 2011. It only predicted that he would be die one day... which as far as I'm aware is what happens to all of us. LAME!

You're kidding, right? Very beginning of the clip, it says "St. Peter's Office." Right under that, it says, "July 29th, 2011."

Did you even watch the clip?

The girl playing Miss America Becky Sue—I think I recognize her. Same woman who now plays Barbara Jean on "Reba"? Looks like her. And who played Gaddafi? That's not Cosmo from "Seinfeld", is it? Ah, the 80s. Don't recall this show, but man I'd forgotten how cheesy and awful TV was back then.

Yes, it's so much better now with all the crap reality shows and crap singing and dancing shows and every other show starring a queer or queer couple. Oh yes, it's so much better now.

I liked that show and I remember the one with KaDaffy. It was funny. I don't know why they cancelled that show. It was the best show that Mathew perry ever played in. KaDaffy was shown the door to hell.
