Spike Channel is showing the 1990 movie, Flatliners right now. I remember watching it in the cinema and loving it. It has a young Jack Bauer, Julia Roberts, along with the ubiquitous Kevin Bacon killing themselves and then bringing themselves back to life to experience the afterlife. The intentions of the various participants come into question early on. Is it for the experience, scientific explorations, or a spot on 60 Minutes?

Kevin Bacon just delivered a line to a Baldwin brother that was made for this blog:

“Die to be a hero some day, don’t die to be a celebrity.”

    Don’t know if you did this on purpose or not but Jack Bauer is a character on 24, I’m pretty sure his real name is Keifer Sutherland.

    Yep, it was deliberate. I was growing up when Keifer Sutherland was popular the first time.
