      Horror being my least favorite genre, i sorta sigh outloud when literally a third of their content is edgy over the top horror that only jay would care for.

      When I want advice on good schlock, I go to Mike, when I want a movie that is like a fevered acid trip, I turn to Jay. Without Jay me and the Wife wouldn't have The Greasy Strangler in our life.

    When I was a kid, in rural bumfuck Australia, there was this VHC I watched over and over, it was a lady doing magic tricks and singing songs etc. It is seared in my brain but I never could remember who she was or the show. We only had one episode recorded off tv.

    When that Lambchop puppet flashed up I nearly had a fucking stroke. I'm nearly 30 btw and haven't seen the show since I was 4-5 years old. Thank you for solving this mystery I never new was plaguing me.

    The quality of our tape was so bad, I always thought the puppet was a poodle or something

    • Michael Glatt
      Michael Glatt Day ago +2

      @dan green season four was the culmination of Dexter, and it’s the last truly great season I agree.

      I wanted to like New Blood, but it really wasn’t that great. The first episode was good. Then after that it was really slow, but then ramped up way too fast like the writers were rushing to the finish.

      It was way too convenient how Angela found out about Dexter being the Bay Harbor Butcher. Especially when you consider one of the big things that leads her to linking him is the ketamine, which is different from the drug he originally used (he used M99). Dumb thing is the writers even seemed to know this and called attention to it in one of the episodes of New Blood.

      Setting that aside the way the finale played out was pretty bad. I didn’t like that Dexter killed Logan, and it didn’t even seem in character for him. Also the way Batista was shoehorned in for a scene making it seem like he was coming to confront Dexter only for it to not happen was just lame.

    • dan green
      dan green Day ago

      @Michael Glatt my only problem with the ending was that i wanted harrison to have a happier ending. Really they popped their wad in season 4, no one was going to stack up to Lithgow. Until they brought Brown in for new blood that is.

      Dexter largely depends on how good of an actor a given antagonist is.

    • Michael Glatt
      Michael Glatt Day ago +1

      @dan green eh I don’t necessarily fully agree.

      As a season New Blood was better than season eight, but that’s a pretty low bar as season eight was so bad.

      The series finale to New Blood sucked. Also really while New Blood was okay it had a lot of problems throughout.

    • dan green
      dan green Day ago

      @Michael Glatt it was much more satisfying than the original. For one thing the brain surgeon was just ass.

    • Michael Glatt
      Michael Glatt Day ago

      Kind of wish that we would have gotten Jay’s thoughts after Dexter: New Blood ended. Obviously he didn’t like it, but I would like to hear him talk about it.

      It amazes me that we got a revival of Dexter only to have a less satisfying ending than the original one.

    6:58 Even as a child Mike had to be the most jaded and aloof person in the room. Even in the presence of Bozo the Clowno he was the only one who couldn't muster a smile.

    I actually was a little fuck-up who only got two buckets in the grand prize game. Went with my third grade class in 1988... exact same Bozo and set, and I'm pretty sure I'm close to Mike's age, so probably within a year or two of his visit. My life since then has in fact been an endless streak of failures and never-even-tries, so I've probably been underestimating how much of an impact that goddamn game had on my life. The little girl after me got four buckets. I assume I was relentlessly mocked the entire trip back to the burbs. I don't remember that part, but of course that part wasn't shown on WGN for my dad to tape so I could have the memory reinforced over and over for years.

    I won a skating rink birthday party (never used), a plastic toy tractor (not the farm kind, the tractor-pull race kind), a face painting kit (never used), and a frozen pizza and box of PB Max candy bars (definitely used those).

    Love and Mercy is another good example of a biography movie that only examines a sliver of someones life. Love and Mercy examines Brian Wilson during his creative peak, 1966-1967, then also covers his late period "treatment" with Eugene Landy.

    Bad Trip was amazing. That scene where he does a musical number about being in love with a bunch of dancers in front of a mall food court of clueless people is where it takes off. Cry laughed the whole way through.

    I was at Woodstock '99. Great music. As for everything else... problematic. I was pretty damn hot the whole time. I remember working my way forward toward the main stage with a bag pack full of water bottles so I could stay somewhat hydrated. The heat was worse in the mass of people. There was no water up front, not even a hose being sprayed over the people to cool them off. I pulled out one of my water bottles and I then had people offering me $20 for one. I could've made some money but I just handed them out at that point. People were legit suffering. Hell, the mass was so thick you could smell the piss in the air as people couldn't get out to relieve themselves. But after three days, I was pretty beat and sunburnt. My feet were all tore up as the mass of people up front was so crushing that my shoes were ripped off and they were getting crushed by those who were smart enough to wear boots. Being 6' 4" I sort of became an escape avenue for lots of the kids who were absolutely getting crushed up against the barricade in front of the main stage. I lost count of how many people I pulled over the rail so they could just get out of the crushing mass. Even I had to pull myself out at some point as I thought my hip bone was going to break from being pressed so hard against that barricade. Buuuut, the music was pretty awesome. :D

      @T D Yeah, the shower areas were initially divided into men and women but they quickly turned co-ed. ;-) As for the end with the Red Hot Chili Peppers (with Flea only wearing his bass guitar and a smile) playing "Fire" by Jimi Hendrix and all those candles that were handed out, I too knew this wasn't a good combination. After three days of scorching heat, high prices, overflowing shitters, little water, etc. people were ready to snap. All the garbage lying all over the place made for good kindling as it turned out. The vendors were looted in quick order so hopefully you didn't pay for an overpriced T-shirt as they were lying all over the place at the end. And those raves, there was some hard hitting stuff being passed about. I remember just walking by some people who I thought were just smoking pot but just taking a quick whiff as I walked by left my head a little dazed. I'm not sure what they were smoking but it sure as hell wasn't marijuana.
      But damn that music was awesome. I'd do it again today. I'd just bring some combat boots, more water and sunscreen. :D

      I was a sophomore in HS at the time and I remember one of the seniors coming back to school after going to that for a few days. When I saw him he looked like he was homeless. Filthy clothes, ripped up backpack, hadn't shaved in like a month (even at 17 he already had a full beard). Probably smelt him from 10 feet away lol. He was smiling from ear to ear though so he obviously had a great time. I remember between seeing him like that and various other things in my life up to that point, that me missing out from being too young at 15, I was already beginning to feel like I "missed the boat" in regards to music, movies and overall pop culture since I was born in the mid 80's instead of the 60s or 70's.
