Last years Picture Slot was Sarah Thompson as Eve on Angel, because I'm a Whedonverse nerd and she's a Fabulous Babe to boot. This year, I went with Oh That Guy extraordinaire Whit Bissell. Next year is a toss-up, but the character actor choices are the most likely, John Matuszak, Mark L. Taylor, Billy Barty or Leo G. Carroll.
Many actors on the list have credits in Canadian produced genre TV, but there is only one native Canadian on the list to spot. Answer in the comments.
Predictor: Back to the Future, Part II released 22 March 1989
Prediction: In 2015, there will be a massive number of TV channels to chose from.
Reality: People really do have TV screens that big in their houses, though splitting into six sub-screens is not very common. The screen at the upper right is not just some smutty addition by an Internet photoshopper, that was really one of the options Marty could have chosen. While this is a comedy and many predictions were just there to be amusing, this one is pretty close to right on the money.
Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
Back to the Future week ends with a date from the first film.
