I am creating a list of all movies or T.V series which showcase float therapy. So far I've got:


1.)Altered States(1980): The film is pretty widely known so I'll just post the link


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altered_States


2.) Simpsons SO10 Ep 16: Lisa and Homer try the isolation tank. Pretty sweet episode.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Make_Room_for_Lisa


3.) Absolutely faboulous SO1 Ep 4: An English show. More of a chick flick but the fourth episode is centered around a tank.

Any other you know which I can add on?

The Fringe clips are awesomely over the top, too. “This will rip open your consciousness.” “I still think this is deeply irresponsible.”

The Ricky Gervais Show and Portlandia have both also had bits. I've got links on my site at http://www.floatboston.com/about/

Also, apparently the pilot episode of the original Hawaii Five-O series (1968) used a sensory deprivation chamber as a torture/interrogation technique. McGarrett was captured by Chinese spies.

A floatation tank is used repeatedly in the US TV show Fringe (well worth a watch by the way) to reach altered states of consciousness.

There are also I-Sopods on an extremely poor English "sitcom" called Starlings. There's a clip on Youtube
. However... although the setup they have for the pods kinda looks cool, it is a very poor show... please do not judge the British sense of humour by this!

Ah, I love you folk's sense of humor. Trust me. But what's so bad about this show? granted I couldn't make much out and why they put the tank in is also not explained. I mean what was the purpose
