One thought on “The First Simpsons Halloween, Blair Witch is Back, and Saw Moves into the Third Dimension

  1. Alfred Hitchcock Presents goes on Nick at Night. 10-year old me was pretty stupid and I remember despising AHP because it didn’t have a cool premise like a Talking Horse or other such glorious shows that I gobbled up on at the same time. I probably just couldn’t follow the plots at 10. Does anyone have a particular favorite episode of AHP to recommend for me to give it a try?

    The Hot Spot doesn’t appear to be streaming anywhere. I liked how Dianna described it as an old fashioned Noir film but with the sex scenes left in. What is the _sexiest_ noir film?

    Other than Treehouse of Horrors, what is the best Halloween tradition that has been created in the last 30 years?

    Chris Farley and Swayze as Chippendale dancers. This is such comedy gold. Has there been an “energetic fat guy able to pull of physical stunts” like Chris Farley in the last 20 years? Someone who could do what he does at the 2:27 mark, live?

    Boston Public was a show I only watched two, maybe three episodes of, but I’m pretty sure it was the first show where I emotionally connected more with the teachers than with the students. I was about to graduate college so while High School felt far away, it wasn’t _that_ far away but still the kids in the show seemed like …. kids while the teachers seemed like Fellow Adults Like Myself. Do you remember any show where you made the switch?

    What was the best PS2 launch title? (Please note, the correct answer is SSX but you can add your own wrong answer if you like.)

    Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare. This was such an incredibly fun addition to Red Dead. Why hasn’t Rockstar done anything like this since?
