    Episode 258 - A Gnome Named Gnorm

    Yeah, I couldn't remember if it was a bomb to be honest. I thought it was but this movie only got 50% attention from me. But you would think this city had a bomb squad. Someone on the force would have scoured the site. We can write it off as Jerry Orbach purposefully mishandled the case, but that really feels like lazy writing. At least have the case buried or in some bushes 50 feet away. Not under the most obvious hiding spot in the immediate vicinity of the explosion.

    Episode 258 - A Gnome Named Gnorm

    I know Jerry Orbach is sabotaging the investigation, but it seems weird that the police didn't thoroughly check the playground to find a briefcase filled with money. Certainly the murder site would have some police check out the area for evidence. A briefcase under a merry go round should have been noticed. Unless the crime scene investigators are in on the crime with Jerry Orbach, this is sloppy police work.

    Episode 258 - A Gnome Named Gnorm

    The still of Gnorm in the tubi preview was enough to really turn me off the movie. It grossed me out. I appreciate how well made and acted Gnorm was by the puppeteers but Gnorm was was too much. Very Mac and Me kind of nauseated. I agree with everything they said with the actors; they really were great.

    I think this has always been the case. When I signed up, I had trouble just posting for some reason. I thought maybe I missed a confirmation email or maybe there was a wait time to limit bots or something. I sent a message to support and never heard back. I eventually just made a different account.

    It looks like you can still access the forums from the front page, but it only leads to the main forums (which is logical). While I would necessarily think the episode specific thread needs to be linked from each episode's page, I do think at least linking to the podcast's specific forum would make sense.

    Episode 256.5 - Minisode 256.5

    I might want to walk back some of my defense of the forums. I wasn't aware you couldn't reach them from the front page since I just have them bookmarked. So, I generally don't go to the front page at all. That's technically not an issue with the forums I guess but it's an issue.
  8. Yeah, I meant to watch it this weekend and couldn't find it on tubi. I completely blanked that I could probably just rent it until Cameron mentioned it.

    HDTGM Classics: The Return

    Yeah. If people want to watch it, go for it. It's just a kind of poorly made drama instead of something crazy as I recall. Had they cast a little person instead of Gary Oldman, it would just be a boring movie.

    HDTGM Classics: The Return

    Tiptoes is not the most fun watch. Granted, I watched it by myself, but not sure how well it holds up to group watch making fun of it.

    For sure this last part. Discord is fine. Message boards are fine. I like both and, even though they can overlap in function a lot, they don't have to. Maybe they shouldn't and maybe they can. It was really just the "earwolf boards suck ass" said in a, as I heard it, not a joking at all tone. Promote discord all you want but not at the expense of us and the people who run/moderate these boards for earwolf. I've never run one but if you open it to the public as an HDTGM board, that's probably a lot of work to moderate or even maintain a sentence of control of.

    Episode 256.5 - Minisode 256.5

    For sure. I think in depth discussion is dependent on the size of the board as much as anything else. I've had some in depth discussion on discord, but something the size of Paul's discord is probably going to be difficult. Even on a message board. Presumably the GEOSTOOOOORM!/KUMITE!!!! posts go away because how often can you realistically say that? But, I guess, if people are having fun, let them have fun.

    Episode 256.5 - Minisode 256.5

    It's good he clarified that but that definitely didn't come off as a joke. He's joked about the boards before and it's been fine and I've defended it as jokes. I'll agree with him and almostaghost that discord is a much friendlier platform for phone use. I think it's a much more robust format because it allows voice chat and streaming. So, bemoaning discord over message boards is a bit like arguing for myspace in the year 2021. As you said earlier, he could have just promoted the discord without the dig on the boards. The "don't spread this misinformation" is a real " this is fake news" kind of claim though.

    Episode 256.5 - Minisode 256.5

    I believe the default view of the boards is now what it used to be. I don't know how long it's been this way, but I suspect a long while. I get message boards are outdated but, honestly, discord functions almost exactly like a message board. It doesn't quite allow for different topics as well in a long term scenario (at least for different episodes of HDTGM). I use discord. So, this isn't just old man yells at cloud. If he's not into message boards and prefers discord, fine. If he said message boards in general suck, fine. But to say this one in particular does, it's a jerk move.

    Episode 256.5 - Minisode 256.5

    Yeah, I don't know if Paul still does the text messaging thing, but I considered texting him just to (respectfully) say how rude that was to us and the people who run the boards.
