 What is that climbing up the stair?

It's not a boar, it's not a bear

And on its head it has a horn

As odd as any unicorn....

Wild Palms is a six hour science fiction TV mini-series from 1993, produced by Oliver Stone and written by Bruce Wagner (who also wrote the comic book the series was based on). It starred James Belushi, Bebe Neuwirth, Angie Dickinson, Kim Cattral, Ernie Hudson and Robert Loggia.

Set in 2007, Harry Wyckoff (Belushi) has got it all: A successful career as a patent attourney, a beautiful wife, a teenage son starting a TV career, and a little daughter who is still too shy to speak. But at night, he is haunted by nightmares of palm trees and rhinoceroses. Accepting a call for help from his former girlfriend to find her kidnapped son, Harry is pulled into a web of intrigue surrounding the charismatic Senator Kreutzer, TV Channel 3, a strange religion called Synthiotics and old rival secret societies called The Friends and The Fathers.

Wild Palms demonstrated an astoundingly sensible projection of future trends, including the rise of retro music as well as believable fashion.
