    Episode 201.5 - Minisode 201.5

    I was expecting one of the live shows (like there is another with Seth Rogen, right?) so it was a surprise on two levels.

    You guys I made an audible groan when more Look Who's Talking was announced. I hate that family!

    Episode 201 - Skyscraper

    Oh yes I meant to mention this as well. Botha's theory is that, in a fire, you immediately grab the thing you care the most about. It made me laugh because about two years ago there was an ad campaign about what a family of four grabbed in an emergency because they didn't have a plan. I believe the mom had a flashlight with no batteries and the kid got the cat. It makes me smile to think that mom really LOVED that flashlight. I wish I could find a link to the poster. But there is pretty ample evidence that when people panic they don't do the most logical thing. It would've been funny if the Building Man grabbed something completely unrelated to the vibrator mcguffin--like one of those ornate statues or something? Then he did get on the helicopter and was like "oooh, I forgot about that thing."

    Trailer Talk

    Zouks is doing a Q&A following LONG DUMB ROAD today in NYC at 7:10 (I can't go but if any of you can, the HDTGM twitter says there are tickets still available). I wonder if the Gerard Butler movie is showing at that theater too because I bet he wants to see it.

    Episode 201 - Skyscraper

    Tall buildings are really effing boring. Since I live in NYC, friends and family coming to visit always want to go to the Empire State Building and I am like "skip it." It's an office building with an expensive gift shop. Unrelated, if Botha could get into the Pearl why not just make a run on stealing the vibrator from the safe? Maybe hold someone hostage and demand it? Or hold the Pearl itself hostage and say he's gonna burn it down unless you give me the drive? I'm just spit balling here but I think we could come up with a less convoluted heist.

    Episode 201 - Skyscraper

    I would've loved to have seen the conversation Neve had with the kid. NEVE: Hey I know you're having an asthma attack and feel like you're dying, but Mommy is going to go with the police to fight bad guys. KID: ... shouldn't the police do that? Why do you need to go? NEVE: I'm a woman so I'm the only one allowed to fight the lady bad guy. KID: Aren't there police ladies? There's one right there. NEVE: Nah, I want to kick her. You stay here. Let me know if Dad falls to his death.

    Episode 201 - Skyscraper

    I agree with a lot of points about how the Rock's backstory doesn't matter and such. I also wanted more with the kids. I was pretty surprised this was made for Chinese audiences with those kids, honestly. Maybe I am the racist here (I hope not!) but I have been told Chinese audiences don't like black people. I know the Rock is half Black. But those kids were somehow darker than he is. Another thing about the kids, where does the boy go when Neve Campbell is being badass? I assume he's in the care of the paramedics who were giving him oxygen. But I wouldn't want to leave my young child alone when he was in that kind of distress/his dad might be falling to his death at any minute. I also thought the Rock should have surrendered himself to police and told them what he knew. I got that he thought the police thought he was part of it, but what kind of police would be like "no we won't send a helicopter to save small children." It felt more like he was doing the climbing stuff to prove his own honor. I didn't think they were very good parents. The note I remember writing was "is this whole movie really an ad for duct tape?" I am still unclear on that.

    I need the gang to do this because I want to do Wig Talk.

    What's the character Amy Poehler plays that always says "and I've got one leg..." That is what I keep thinking of while watching Skyscraper.

    Episode 200 - Action Jackson: LIVE!

    I saw a picture but I won't post without permission (I respect copyright). I don't think he was in costume? But he did the eyes in the photo. So if he is like Santa, I imagine him showing up on Halloween and just photobombing everyone with bug eyes.

    200th Mini Retrospective Clip Show Spectacular!

    I love this episode. It should be one of the ones that is always available like the Howdies. It touched on a lot of great moments (even if there was no mention of BLOODSPORT). I am excited for SKYSCRAPER. Going to rent it tonight!

    Doh! HDTGM Jason. Zouks. Derek. Rafi. Ali (my friend) lives in Austin. Not sure where the party was but I assume close?

    A friend of mine in Texas went to a Halloween party dressed as Eleanor from "The Good Place" and Jason was there.

    Celebrate #HDTGM200 !!!

    I wish I could remember what the first episode of HDTGM I listened to was. It might be BATMAN AND ROBIN. I know I posted on social media excited when hey did DAREDEVIL (shut up, I like comic book movies) so it was definitely before that. I think the first time I commented on the forums was CONFESSIONS OF A MARRIAGE COUNSELOR. I think it's more fun now that I post on the forums. It's interactive and whatever! I don't know about favorites. I would often listen to old episodes when I was anxious. And I said so on the forums and when the paywall went up other forum posters we're like offering me their saved episodes on the DL which was very sweet. (After I had posted about a recent hospitalization for PTSD.) I thought it was kind of funny. "Are you okay? Do you want my copy of the BLOODSPORT episode?" I don't know about favorite catch phrases either. I like Paul's Blockbuster stories and Jason's Harry Potter references (especially since I work in children's publishing). I do find myself saying things like "that was wild" (tm Nicole Byer), "so upsetting" and "what is happening right now?". It made me wonder if other regular listeners have started using HDTGM verbiage. I even saw a friend who lives in Italy mention Stellar Skateboard. She didn't know about the podcast but had seen that name on Wikipedia and adopted it. (As anyone I am friends with would IMMEDIATELY do.) I was pleased.

    Oh making it even longer is a good idea. Maybe we can put a colon and a top comma in there some how. One note, I know Fraction was suggested in the episode but it does actually rhyme with Action, and I think that is a mistake.
