    I hadn't heard about that at all. Let's just say I'm reclaiming it back!

    Upcoming Episodes

    Oh, that was just me referencing the greatest sequel of all-time, not official. Didn't know it was a bad word now, sorry all

    Upcoming Episodes

    Unspooled 2 will be starting on August 20. There will also be an Unspooled Game Show at some point. The brand is taking off!

    Jaws

    I think I agree with that, though I side with Paul & Amy with Jurassic Park over Jaws. JP, SL and Raiders would be my choices. Close Encounters is my favorite Spielberg probably, though, but I don't think it should be on the list over the others.

    Episode 243 - The Peanut Butter Solution

    This kid goes bald and freaks out. He tries a wig and freaks about that too. Why didn't he just borrow a hat from Connie? He clearly has a never-ending supply. Problem solved, movie over, all of our time saved.

    Musical Mondays Week 95 The Wiz

    Wheelers! I couldn't remember the name for them. I read the Baum books in like 1988 or so, so I don't remember many details but images of wheeled monkeys stuck.

    Musical Mondays Week 95 The Wiz

    That's what Musical Mondays and Unspooled Thursdays and HDTGM Fridays are for. Otherwise, I'd have no clue either.

    Musical Mondays Week 95 The Wiz

    I loved this, it was very entertaining! The music is awesome. Some of the sets and things maybe lean too weird-as-fuck, but I don't mind that at all. I'm so glad I watched this! Hm one of the main critiques of the original is the whole is message is "there's no place like home" which makes little sense after visiting a magical wonderland like Oz. Here, it makes a bit more sense because Dorothy is such a homebody introvert. But that said, Diana Ross isn't very good in this; she's the weak point in this movie if you ask me. Which sucks because out of everyone in the film, she's the one I'm a big fan of. She doesn't get the arc or motivation across well.

    Episode 242.5 - Prequel to Episode 243

    Oh ya I'm planning to, my nieces filled me in on it all! I'm still in the season 1, just 20 eps in, so I have a ways to go. The set-up reminds me of Buffy in a way, which helped me connect to it pretty quick.

    It Happened One Night

    Yea I think that makes sense as a way to look at it, especially with the ending being her realization she has to go do what she chooses, not what's expected. That's a pretty adult decision.

    Episode 242.5 - Prequel to Episode 243

    I'm about to call my nieces and recommend it! Speaking of, they got me into Trollhunters too. It's also good fun

    Episode 242.5 - Prequel to Episode 243

    Yea I watched the first ep this afternoon too. Good mindless fun to have on in the background! Gonna try the show Jason mentioned too, Alone. That looks interesting

    It Happened One Night

    I'm probably going to be one of the few No votes, so I'll offer my thought on it. Basically, I keep thinking about something Amy brought up earlier in the Unspooled series, about being blinded by the firsts. This is an early rom-com, early Capra, early screwball comedy. But I think there are better rom-coms, and better Capras, and better screwball comedies. This movie is textbook influential, for sure, but I'm not sold on it being textbook 'great'.
