Which historical figures do you imagine going into Bar Karma, and why? Remember, even though the television show depicting it is new, the bar itself is pretty old – it’s been doing business for 20,000 years or so, so there’s a lot of opportunity for history in the making (and changing) there. It's fun to see how what we know as our timeline or events in our universe have been altered or could be altered because of the bar’s karmic intervention.

Incredulous2 years agoThe senior citizen versions of the Scarecrow, Tinman, Lion, Dorothy, and her now stuffed Taxidermy Toto, still being carried around in that silly basket. They take a back booth, dimly lit, are waited on by Paris Hilton in a blue checked pinafore that is scandalously short, and order vodka tonics all around (Dorothy orders a bowl of soy milk for Toto). They are all speaking in a low tone, under their breath, barely audible, plotting the slow and torturous demise of the Wizard, who by now they have all realized...sold them out.
In the background, Abe Lincoln is leaving the bar, and the bartender calls out to him "enjoy the play!"
Owlixx2 years agoGreek Gods perhaps. Very positive and very negative figures should encounter each other at some point.
satellitelady2 years ago20,000 years or more? Hmm, why not a caveman having a drink showing his new weapon, Newton discovering gravity as his beer glass falls from the counter.
wildb0y10102 years agoA famous myth hero or story teller. Possibly Homer, Sun tzu, a certain god (such as a greek, egyptian, or norse) because they make a lot of decisions based on what is good or bad. Whether it is telling a story and what happens to a character or how a god should punish certain people and why.
It would be cute to have some extras in the background, in costume, sitting and having discussions.
Like at a table in the bar, there is William Shakespeare talking to Woody Allen. Both are very recognizable by physical appearance, so we don't need to hear them say anything.
Or Carl Sagan with Galileo.
Salvador Dali with Timothy Leary.
Cleopatra and Queen Victoria.

Martin Luther King Jr.
All at one party,
because they know,
the second they leave,
will be the last time,
in the bar,
and the last time,
they'll ever live.

Julius Caesar: if I understood the main plot line, it's about people coming to a big crossroad in their lives. Well Caesar maybe's a good symbol of that, because when he crossed the Rubicon there were no turning back and the destiny of the empire and the ancient Rome was written.
tverdell2 years agoMalcolm X is one of my favorite people in history.
He went from being a pimp, street hustler, prisoner, brain-washed racist Muslim --> a possible great leader after coming from Mecca. Then he was assasinated.
remanns2 years agoA drunk,...really drunk and morose gay Russian Santa, trying to catch the eye of a jovial Socrates going on and on and on about his upcoming demise and how damn GOOD LOOKIN' ( in a Platonic sense) the youth of Athens are.. Hmmmm,.... Joan of Arc mumbling to herself, occasionally glancing desperately upward at the ceiling,....and darting REALLY MAD crazed glances at the 2 large... more
poisydon2 years agoTry to research about the story of the Count of St. Germain, this can really be a great help, when it comes on making some history of Bar Karma
theotherme2 years agoEvery New Year's Eve Bar Karma reserves a special table in the back for the annual dinner meeting of "The Group".
Physicist Dr. Michio Kaku leads "The Group" which includes Francis Bacon, Plotinus, Nostradamus, Marco Polo, Margaret Thatcher, Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Voltaire, Confucius, Mother Teresa, and the always last to arrive, Christopher Columbus....he's lost again.
The members present their theories, debate, eat, drink, and aruge....finally ending the meeting by agreeing that the questions on the table this year, as is the case every year, need more thought.
Will Wright, of course! A "über meta" episode.
A dirty dark skinned man, with dense curly hair and beard. His hands are bandaged. He wears a mantle of rough fabric. He looks like a beggar and is known as “Yellow Teeth” and is said to be the last bar owner. All signs indicate he’s Jesus, but it never gets really clear (for screenwriting’s sake he is Jesus, but I believe we cannot confirm it to the... more
azero2 years agoI think one of everyone's initial reactions is to suggest historical figures with bad karma.
Ghandi, on the other end of the Karma spectrum, might provide:
-some perspective on the world
-an interesting beat where he learns of how the world developed after his death despite the example he set
-should time paradoxes be ignored, him influencing a figure on the negative side of the spectrum to change his ways would be very interesting.
