    As soon he stepped up and sang, “Alexander Hamilton. My name is Alexander Hamilton” I was like “I’m in big, big trouble” lol In other news, my wife finally witnessed Hamilton (she would not listen to the soundtrack and has made fun of me for years) to which she gave a hearty, “Yeah, I can see why people like this.”

    Episode 242 - The Boyfriend School

    Absolutely! And thank you for all of your insights and composing such a wonderful and enlightening post! I was afraid when I wrote my initial post that I wouldn’t be able to adequately articulate what I was trying to say, so I’m glad I did an okay job of it I have a ton of respect for all writers, and it’s a bit of a pet peeve of mine when Romance is unfairly maligned or otherwise dismissed out of hand. I agree with you that Romance, in all its countless iterations, is as crucial and as valid as any other genre and deserves to be treated as such. (Also, in the nature of full disclosure, much of what I know is due to my wonderful wife who is a professional cover artist. Many of her amazing clients are Romance authors. I was definitely looking for her work in that trailer ) Welcome to the forums!

    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.

    Episode 242.5 - Prequel to Episode 243

    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.

    Episode 242.5 - Prequel to Episode 243

    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.

    Musical Mondays Week 95 The Wiz

    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.

    Musical Mondays Week 95 The Wiz

    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.

    Musical Mondays Week 95 The Wiz

    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)

    Musical Mondays Week 95 The Wiz

    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.
  16. I’d go #1, as well. I only listened to the soundtrack first as I didn’t really have another option.
  17. 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.
  18. Thanks, Cinco! Looks like you figured it out! Please let us know hoe you did it when you get a chance
  19. I’ll aim for 6:30 tomorrow

    Trollhunters is fantastic! Make sure you watch 3 Below afterwards. It’s set in the same universe. There’s supposed to be a third part called Wizards coming out this summer.
  21. Oh man, I just saw your posts @Cinco DeNio! Sorry, I can’t tonight
