    Episode 336.5 - Sklarbro County 241

    As this will be one of the final county episodes I want to make a prediction for dumb people town. There will be a story, from Florida of course, about a parent who leaves a young child at home under the supervision of their Alexa device. I have not heard of this actually happening yet, but believe me this will happen.

    Your Favorite Episode?

    Wild, Wild, West. I think because it was the first episode I had heard; hard to beat the first time.
  3. I'm glad that someone in the audience brought up 'Flowers For Algernon'; this was basically a retake on that story but with a late 80s early 90s twist- you know with bullies and buns (sadly no roller blades though). In regards to the VR sex scene, Jobe was able to read Marnie's mind and knew her sexual fantasies; he was going to use the VR to try and replicate them. However, unbeknownst to Jobe, the corporation had already altered the VR program by reinstating "batch 5", making it dangerous. This is why he let her be while she was stuck, and shocked that it hurt her- this is also why he turned violent at the end.

    Amazing Grace and Chuck (1987)

    WHOA, this hits close to home; this was one of my favorites as a kid. Somewhat relevant with all the recent athlete protests, which allowed me to bring up this movie.

    The Lawnmower Man (1992)

    Wow, so many archetypes thrown at you in the first 20 minutes (including the cheesy portrayal of VR)

    Vampire's Kiss (1988)

    Just a heads up, the full movie is available on Youtube. Just finished watching it; its a less fun, more artsy, annoying version of 'American Psycho'. Someone wrote on IMDB that Cage's performance was the inspiration for Bale in American Psycho (for whatever that is worth), I can see that.

    Episode 146 - Dreamcatcher

    Actually I am constantly trying to bring back catchphrases I used as a kid. Most of what I say is a mix of 90s hip-hop and semi cholo-ish slang; I keep it dope, fly, and firme like that all the time.

    Episode 146 - Dreamcatcher

    So I am late to this I know, but I just want to echo the sentiments of so many others; there is no way these aliens would ever struggle to take us over. Theyve mastered intergalactic travel, can instantly disappear into dust, and can control the body of living thing around them; and with all these powers all they have to do is drop a worm into a city's water supply to win. Yet for two decades they've failed! Lots of movies make the antagonist unbeatable and then find some cheap device to save the day (eg. kill the head vampire and all the others go back to normal). There is nothing of the sort here, its never even implied (like the way the kids got their powers). On a side note, I think they make all the friends failures and unlikable as adults to show how much the powers they have changed them and ruined their lives. As tweens who stood up for a handicapped kid they didn't know, and readily accepted an ass kicking at the hands of the biggest HS bullies, because it was the right thing to do. Not many kids would do that.

    Class Act (1992)

    Remember how in the late 80s/ early 90s, before rap and hip-hop completely made into the main-stream, Hollywood would try to co-opt the culture into some horribly cheesy messes? This was one of them. It's Kid N Plays Prince and the Pauper movie where the stereotypical nerd switches roles with the stereotypical thug; except everything is a bit over the top. Its some hollywood exec's idea of how urban youths talked, combined with attempts at slapstick, combined with a HS coming of age movie. The main protagonist has a yuppie henchman, and Rhea Perlman plays a teacher who tries to seduce one of her students.

    Willy/Milly (1986)

    One of those mid/late 80s movies that was on HBO that I vaguely remember from my childhood. If I remember correctly the moment before Willy/Milly decides on what gender to be she spins a tacked up letter "M" that proceeds her name "Milly"; it ends up upside down (thus spelling Willy) and the decision is made.

    The Peanut Butter Solution (1985)

    Its funny you brought up scary movies shown to us in school, it reminded me that Christy Swanson's parents were substitute teachers in my school district. Her dad subbed for my art class once and instead of teaching a lesson showed us Flowers in the Attic. That kinda freaked me out, I'll have to try to remember the ones that scared me when I was younger though

    F/X 2 (1991)

    Similar story here, all I remember was the robot clown

    The Peanut Butter Solution (1985)

    Is there a list somewhere online of "crappy movies that were on HBO in the 80s that all the Gen XYers vaguely remember"? This would be on there and I can think of a few others.
