An ad for popular suspense drama "Confusion, Texas"

"Confusion, Texas" is a popular show in the Twilight City area. It features Zach Marlow, who is lost in the middle of Texas and is unable to find his way back home. Twilight City is still eagerly awaiting the season finale, which should have aired several months ago. Numerous scenes have been filmed in Twilight, including the bomb diffusing scene which was filmed in our very own Twilight Stadium.

Cast of CharactersEdit

Zach Marlow (Jacob Heartz) is the unflappable, luckless protagonist of the series. Zach suffers from black outs, one of which lead to his unexpected awakening within the limits of Confusion, Texas. Once within the town, he meets the mysterious and neurotic Eve (Megan Shelley), a travelling musician who has been trapped in the town for three months.

Philosophy Professor Archibald Higgins (Lou Langley) was a childhood friend and mentor of Zach's. He makes recurring appearances despite having died long ago in a lab accident. Higgins speaks to Zach in the form of various lower life forms, though this may be entirely within Zach's own imagination.

Sheriff Mickelson (Heaton Willis) is the cranky, obese lawman seemingly in charge of Confusion, Texas. He appears to consider the town under Martial Law and, on several occasions, has made statements that seem to show that he thinks the outside world is in the middle of a nuclear war. Needless to say, he usually serves as a hinderance to Zach and Eve.

The King of Clowns (Lucas McDon) serves as the main antagonist of the series so far. Though he has employed the assistance of various other villains over the course of the show, he relies mostly on the brute force of an army of clowns. He appears to have entered Confusion with a travelling circus and his motivations are largely unknown.

Unexplained OccurancesEdit

Zach Marlow's six-shooter never seems to run out of bullets. There has been no outright mention of this fact by any of the characters. On multiple occasions, Zach has however expressed concern about running out of bullets. He has fired this weapon up to fourteen times in rapid succession.

Whenever The King of Clowns enters his ominous Big Top tent in the center of town, three other clowns emerge with him. It appears that he can re-enter and exit the tent as many times as he wishes, bringing at least three clowns out with him every time.

When Sheriff Mickelson is inside or near any building, its doors become unlocked. Even if a door has been expressly locked by another character, that same door will be unlocked when Mickelson opens it.

During the high school scene in episode 9, every student within the school was played by a single young actor. Even the female students were merely the same actor in drag. Clever use of elevator shoes, split screens, and other visual tricks largely conceal this fact and the episode must be viewed frame-by-frame to reveal it.

All radios in Confusion, Texas play a constant loop of a single episode of the old Green Hornet radio drama. This is even true of HAM and C.B. radios.

At the end of episode 12, a water tower in town suddenly begins to rumble and levitates into the air. It hovers momentarily, then flies away. There had been no previous sign or mention of alien life in the episode, and there has been none anywhere else in the series before or since.

Any building that explodes, burns down, or is otherwise destroyed at any point can be seen unmarred and in pristine condition once again exactly two episodes later.
