Austin Light is a creative man. He writes, he illustrates, he designs, and he still manages to find time to think up remakes of beloved TV shows with one letter removed from their titles. He recently uploaded an album to Imgur titled "Remove a letter, make a show better--I spent May making TV title typos," which features exactly that. This simple gimmick works surprisingly great, mostly because the concept images are so spot on for the ridiculous loglines that follow them. Here are some of the best pitches Light came up with.
