    Dude I didn’t even listen to the episode but if you guys are talking about Fortess I want in. Crank, don’t you remember me talking about this a year ago? I so want to see this again. Creeped me out as a kid.

    I remember Whoops. It was Gilligans Island with an A-Bomb.
    My TV Show no one remembers is The Charmings.

  6. crank! Says:

    Snow White sitcom or something wasn’t it? I don’t recall seeing it but I sorta remember it being on.

    The Dish and The Castle are on my “to see” list. In fact I had rented them both countless times at my video store jobs, but never got around to watching them. The Dish is higher on the list due to the presence of Patrick Warburton.

    The movie Crank was thinking of was Peter Wier’s Picnic at Hanging Rock.

    A few Australian films I’ve enjoyed recently both star Bryan Brown incidentally, Dirty Deeds and Two Hands. Dirty Deeds is a retro 50’s gangster comedy that features John Goodman and one of the chicks from Wolf Creek. Two Hands is a Tarantino-esque crime caper featuring Heath Ledger and the delicious Rose Byrne and directed by Gregor Jordan who did the awseome Buffalo Soldiers with Joaquin Phoenix.

    I own Three Extremes, but have yet to watch it.

    Isn’t John Goodman dead?

  9. Sal! Says:

    What’s the dillio with all the comics talk. That’s not what you do. Stick to the format dammit!

  10. the amazing wally Says:

    Crank!: I dunno about John Goodman being dead but now they have Rachel Ray hawking Dunkin Donuts
    just what i need. >.

    I can tell you that I happen to be on a very good comics message board at Red vs Blue. I’ve been thinking about a comic shop with an actual atmosphere other than “Sweaty-guy behind the counter trying to sign you up for a pull list before going to hang out with his Magic: The Gathering buddies.”

    Great ep. Love the hour-long…edness.

  12. crank! Says:

    I will stress again (mostly b/c I know I ramble a bit when heated and don’t know if I stated this implicitly) there are some great comic shops that it’s been my pleasure to shop at.

    And then there were wierd dank basement/cave/dungeon things that are seared into my memory.

    I like comic shops, I’m sad that some of them see downloads, and by association me, as an enemy, an annoyance or a passing fad.


  13. Sam Says:

    I’ve got it on my queueueueueueue now. We should see it in about two years.

    Crank!: in regards to teh whole downloadable comics thing…nothing will ever be able to replace the feeling of having the book in your hand and i think that that also plays into things a little.
