The news that deposed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was captured and killed in his hometown of Sirte took the world by storm Thursday morning, but any devout fans of Matthew Perry's first sitcom could have known it was going to happen.
Of course, there are very few devotees of "Second Chance," these days, and seeing as it only ran during the 1987-1988 TV season, there weren't many fans of the show even back then. But still.
The features the story of Chazz Russell, a man who dies in 2011 but isn't quite fit for either heaven or hell. He goes back in time, to 1987, to help his past self live a better life, engaging with a young and snarky Perry. Before he reached the pearly gates in the pilot, however, Colonel Gaddafi showed up for judgment following his death. We repeat: he died in 2011. (And couldn't take a joke).
Of course, since it was the 80s, he only had a few, barely visible bullet holes. Which is not the case for the real Gaddafi.
