    Episode 242.5 - Prequel to Episode 243

    I know that as a society we still have a long way to go, but it really is amazing how much has changed in a relatively short period of time. Even early HDTGM episodes have stuff that I’m sure they would no longer say.

    I just listened to that ep a few weeks ago for Howdies research, and I’m 90% sure it was Welcome to Frogtown. If you look through that thread, I definitely pulled that time stamp.

    That's a fantastic question. I'm not sure, tbh. Jason, as an archetypal figure, is something I think many people aspire to be, and perhaps privately think that they are, but very few people can attain. A Jason must be able to wear many hats. A Jason must be able to be thoughtful and outrageous with equal alacrity. The dichotomy of a Jason is of pushing away ("Don't touch me"), while simultaneous drawing people to him with his charisma. Most importantly, A Jason would never ever think of himself as a Jason. They would just be one.

    I believe you are correct.

    The Wheelers are from the books. In fact, a lot of the stuff in Return to Oz is. It might be the other way around and The Wiz was borrowing from the books.

    Agreed! Oz in the Wiz is more run down. It's bright, but there's a kind of dangerous edge to it. If I'm remembering correctly, more like Return to Oz. Also, Wiz Dorothy comes from, what appears to be a very loving and supportive family, whereas Wizard Dorothy is actively trying to escape her life and trying to protect her dog. However, that brings me to what I think is my biggest complaint about The Wiz as compared to Wizard. I don't like the the Evilean isn't introduced until the very last act. In Wizard, the Wicked Witch is a continuous, and personal, threat to Dorothy. The witch in Wiz feel more like a box to check than a legitimate or interesting threat.

    I’ve seen the Live version, and I liked it. They wrote a new song for it that I quite liked. I’d link it, but you might just to watch it.

    Something I really liked about The Wiz is at the end of the movie it’s Dorothy, and not the Wizard, who confirms that the things her companions sought they possessed all along. I think that’s more emotionally satisfying than the kind of gag/satirical ending in The Wizard of Oz (e.g. A diploma proves you have a brain whether that’s true or not)

    Overall, I agree. I enjoyed the music and choreography. I found out that people felt Diana Ross was too old at 33 to play Dorothy, so that makes me feel a bit protective of her. I thought she did a great job.

    I have always loved how Dorthy takes the witch’s shoes like she’s in RPG trying to gear up her character.
  12. I’d go #1, as well. I only listened to the soundtrack first as I didn’t really have another option.
  13. Ease on down, we watched:
  14. I have not seen it live, but I loved the soundtrack. I think it would probably help to listen first since so much of the story is told through the lyrics, but I know a lot of people went into it cold and loved it as well.
