So 25 Years ago, ABC scared the mess out of everyone with "The Day After." Pop Candy had a post today with an interesting link that looks back on this tv movie. I remember this movie vividly, but I had no idea that some kids were made to watch this thing in school.

Interestingly, when the show Jericho came out recently, the shot of they used in ads leading up to its debut (the one with the kid on the roof seeing the mushroom cloud in the distance), reminded me of The Day After. Then it came on around that same time, on SciFi or something, and I watched it again. I'm a sucker for anything with Max Dugan in it.
