Running Man: In the distant future, a tough racer uses his psychokinetic powers against his opponents during his final race. 3.

Watch Lenore the Cute Little Dead Girl
Plot Summary: The series tells of the unlife and adventures of the titular character and her similarly odd (if not odder) friends. The story takes place in a small town called Nevermore (taking its name from the same poem as Lenore’s namesake “The Raven”) and the surrounding wilderness where Lenore’s mansion and a nearby graveyard is situated. The primary focus of the series is dark humor, with many of the stories having twist endings. Common themes are the reinvention of children’s songs, games, and nursery rhymes to something more macabre, and subverting all sorts of pop culture icons and cultural figures in to topics of dark comedy.
