In Topic: Question for other listeners

I'm sorry if this came off shady to the zero people who responded.
I apparently accidentally deleted an old episode of the Canon (#60) from my iTunes (no idea how, since auto-delete is off) that I obviously can't redownload.
It's my hope to find someone who does have it so they can email it to myself and the completist in me can rest easy. If anyone is willing to help, please let me know.

I always figured it was Maria or Amanda Lund.

I rewatched the films last year, and boy oh boy do I think PART III is waaaaaaaay better than PART II. But I don't think either are canon worthy. So I can wait to hear if there's arguments for.

I also hate the dead son cliche, but in lesser films. When I see a new trailer for some gritty cop film directed by a nobody and starring Mark Wahlberg that screams "dead son," THAT'S when I groan. Cliches and tropes are cliches and tropes for a reason though. They can be used well if used by the right filmmaker.
And avenging the dead son isn't even the point of the movie! In the Wahlberg version, the film would end with him finding the kidnapper and killing him. In the superior Spielberg/Cruise version, the victory is in moving on, starting a new life, and helping get justice for another destroyed family.

Also, a film doesn't have to be one stagnant tone. It can ebb and flow into fun or scary scenes (look at Spider-Man 2), and still all work together. Just because a movie has varied tones doesn't mean it has "a tone problem."
