    Episode 167 - Chopping Mall: LIVE!

    Thank you. I wish we could have agreed to disagree a long time ago. I will continue to enjoy future episodes of HDTGM with no further input. I apologize for disrupting the community. As a new commenter, it was not my place to interfere.

    Episode 167 - Chopping Mall: LIVE!

    Someone passed on to me that you are still bothered by my personal opinion so: Why use the movie at all if the found research and director commentary would cast a pall over the whole show if mentioned up front? I used Polanski to make the point that I would find the movie choice off putting regardless of personal experience with the director or not. I can't recall them doing a movie before that was helmed by an exploitative porn director to compare this to. I don't know.

    Eventually, they did. I never miss an episode and I will always be a fan. I don't really need a refresher course on the podcast, thanks. If this were a Roman Polanski episode, I bet you would also want to know upfront. Maybe I'm too close to it; I understand this is a personal problem. However, by your logic June also being uncomfortable with this guy is offside when it comes to a podcast that only exists for making fun of the movie. But since you completed my mansplain bingo card with "silly, I'm sorry you feel that way and well, actually" I'm going throw in the towel. (Correcting a "railing" woman and dismissing her concerns about how women are portrayed on the screen and treated in the workplace were the free spaces, in case you were wondering.)

    That's fair. I guess I just get fired up that such a demonstrably gross person gets any airtime at all without an upfront caveat that everyone agrees he is foul.

    I stuck around past June's comments and I really appreciated her disgust. I listened to a majority of this episode, but ultimately bailed because I have personal experience with this vile person and as a result this episode was not for me. All the "yay bewbs" stuff was very unpleasant for me because I experienced it in real time in my workplace. Thanks to everyone for re-contextualizing my experience with Wynorski. It feels great to be shut down by people who have not had the displeasure of working with him and then having him re-emerge on your favourite podcast.

    I signed up to the Earwolf forum specifically to let you know what a massive effing creep Jim Wynorski is to work with and how disappointed I am in your show for even in engaging in this movie and Paul and Jason's delight over the gratuitous nudity. Jim is an appalling, exploitative person who sprung nudity on our set - the actress was implied to be his girlfriend - with no notice on the call sheet. Wardrobe was not informed because she didn't need any at all. The movie was in no way scripted to have porn or sex or nudity. I was brought into the production by a show runner I trusted and he was really ashamed and apologetic once he realized how things were for our actresses and crew. I love your podcast so much and never miss an episode, but couldn't finish this one and honestly my opinion of Paul and Jason has diminished a bit over this. You usually feature trivia and research and alternate scenes/endings. How did the foulness of this guy get past you? It's easy to find plenty of information on how awful he is to the female gender on both the cast and the crew. Like I said, June and Paul and Jason and all your wonderful guests have delighted me for so long. I was surprised by how actively angry your dismissal of such a gross person's behaviour made me. I hope I don't ever feel compelled to sign into these forums for anything other than praise and respect again.
