I also felt like I intimately knew the 20‘s through 50’s when I was a little kid. Pretty sure it was mostly just osmosis through TV but I didn't know that at first. Kinda wild how a Tiny Toons episode in a noir style can give you a sense of an entire genre.

I like the energy of Frank just popping in “I finished my lunch!” Props to the editor and everyone, haha

From my perspective, all but the richest 60’s hippies were chased out of the SF bay. Like the ones that moved to The Farm in Tn.

As a youngish child the idea of robot duplicates of humans was deeply disturbing to me. Like I couldn‘t watch all of Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey. The Batman animated series episode with a bunch of robot duplicates of characters like Commissioner Gordon was also unsettling in the same way, but I guess it was tame enough and I had grown up just enough to enjoy it. I think it was mentioned in the podcast discussion?

And looking up the evil robots from Bill and Ted holy crap those are still crazy disturbing

I have a Judaism question I've been wondering for years:

In grade school I got invited to seder at my friend's house. At one point his parents asked him to open the door and invite I think it was Elijah into the house. So he did but yelled "hey Elijah get your ass in here!" and he got in trouble.

My question is on a 1-10 scale how funny was this and also how disrespectful was it ?

@“yeso”#p82547 It's about a 7/10 on comedy, and a 3/10 on Disrespectful

@“Jaffe”#p82553 so is that a 7/11 overall

thanks Jaffe I‘m surprised it’s only a 3 for offensiveness. I didn't know Passover was so lax wrt hijinks

I implore anyone unfortunate enough to encounter Chaos Walking to read the original Patrick Ness trilogy, starting with The Knife Of Never Letting Go. It’s tempting to say they done him dirty on the script, but I don’t think it is that - I think it’s that he did what some truly great novels do, which is create a story that only really truly lives within that form.

Yeah, they definitely didn‘t do him dirty on the script, the bit that’s bleeped out from me explains that pretty handily (a short version is: he did himself dirty on the script)

I remember when The CW in the Bay Area was UPN 44 cable 12. Good times.

The 80s and into the 90s had a huge flood of nostalgia media for The Greatest Generation. Baseball movies, war movies, reboots/remakes/ripoffs, swing music, and so much more. It doesn't hurt that general design from that era is pretty comfy and not downright offensive or extreme.

For those of us who were kids when this all got released, it was pretty fresh feeling and offered a way for us to connect with our parents and grandparents.

I have to agree with whoever said they enjoyed the non-supervillain Batman: The Animated Series episodes a lot. There's a number of episodes that focus more on Gotham residents or maybe just gangsters and they help balance out the more wild, say, Ra's Al Ghul episodes. I loved the Grey Ghost episode that was specifically mentioned, along with Joker's Favor and the others...

Yeah, I think the H.A.R.D.A.C. episode was mentioned where clones of notable Gotham residents were created. I felt that was done _just right_ for an animated series aimed primarily at children!

…i listened to this (not-an) episode yesterday but just got the pun in the title…

Anima: Seymour, do you want me to tell you when it's 7:30

I can commiserate with Brandon‘s Japanese visa woes lol. I’m going to grad school in China in the fall, and have had all sorts of weird problems. The Chinese embassy in the United States started processing student visa applications literally today (classes start the second week of September), so I just went ahead and submitted my application. There‘s a very high probability that with quarantine and all I will miss the first week of classes. The university’s been very understanding, so things will be fine – and this is honestly the best case scenario, since for awhile I was convinced they just weren't going to let any students in for another year. Still, not a big fan of all these bureaucratic processes!

it took some doing, but i found my favorute episode of batman the animated series, perchance to dream

it probably stuck with me so much because i was so fascinated with the phenomenon of dreaming as a kid.

@“pasquinelli”#p82751 I think one of the things to really celebrate about the show is how few stinkers it had for how many episodes they cranked out so swiftly. The majority of them were produced in the initial batch for season one.

If anyone missed out on the theatrical movie The Mask of the Phantasm, I recommend going back to watch it because it was essentially a comfy multi-part episode with a bigger budget that allowed for some original music and the like.

mask of the phantasm is the closest-to-perfect batman film

@“pasquinelli”#p82751 Yeah, I just watched that one again myself - I liked the bit about the reading, and the falling to wake up - though I later discovered that some people (including myself!) can read in dreams.
