Watch enough TV, and the programming landscape can start to feel a bit repetitive after a while; if you've seen a handful of sitcoms, soaps, procedurals, or reality shows, sometimes it's easy to assume you've seen them all. But this is not to say that every so often, network execs aren't capable of indulging the occasional flight of fancy. In fact, the dial is often littered with memorably idiosyncratic shows -- some of which we later look back on with befuddled bemusement and wonder what the people behind the scenes could have been thinking. This week, we raise a glass to those not-so-noble failures, so start practicing your most quizzical facial expressions -- it's time for Total Recall!

We had a chance to ask Sánchez about his five favorite films. See if the list surprises you.
