A new TV show previewing January 20th lets viewers add to the plot. It’s called “Bar Karma,” and it was created by the guy who created Sim City and all those other Sims games.

The show is set in a mystical watering hole at the edge of the universe and features a 20,000 year-old bartender.  Go to to contribute to the next episode.

The first episode is about an author who goes into the future to discover that the political fall-out from his children’s book is going to cause a global meltdown.  Jason Lee Holm thought up the idea, the online community chose it as the best one, and the TV studio’s staff fleshed it out and produced a 30 minute show.

The series is called “Bar Karma” because it tackles the infinite possibilities surrounding the scenario: “A guy (or gal) walks into a bar….” Bar Karma is a time-travel bar where lost souls get eerie glimpses into the past, present and many possible futures.

After the preview on January 20, the first regular episode begins February 11. On Direct TV, it’s on channel  358, and you can go to to get information about Dish Network and other providers. We couldn’t get it on our TV, so we’ll have to watch it on the web.
