Episode 160: Soupified

Stupefy!

Halfway through the final season wow. This week we’re back with possibly the most confusing story ever broadcast in the history of television. I promise. It’s Ghost Light, written by Marc Platt, aired October of 1989.


Show-notes:


5:07 Yeah, apparently they used a real house just for the exterior and apparently the observatory was added in post production.
13:37 Well searching “round mini shades” only brought up pictures of lampshades and searching “round mini glasses” brought up pictures of drinking glasses. My google fu is weak. Oh well.
17:35 There were a bunch of guys who researched these moths, but one of the first was someone named JW Tutt. Here’s a random journal article about him. The J didn’t stand for Josiah by the way.
21:19 Meh. Too lazy to read all of this. So maybe. You tell me.
24:04 It’s actually a big slug thing from Star Wars. Oh, sorry that’s Jabba. Java is an island in Indonesia.
37:21 According to a text from Dylan, she had nine heirs. See here for more details.

Episode 124: A Blueberry With Wings

Apparently butterfly = blueberry with wings. This is some high level math.

I think our episode where we talk about almost nothing is pretty representative of this week’s serial, where the characters to practically nothing. If you guessed Edge of Destruction, you’re completely wrong, it’s Black Orchid. Written by the ever illustrious Terence Dudley and aired in March of 1982.


Show-notes:


6:18 Chess boxing is what you think it is. I think. Not to be confused with checkers mma or snakes and ladders smackdown.
22:21 The first Bourne movie has one of the assassins sent to kill Bourne jump out a window hilariously when he fails his mission. Hmm… Maybe we’ll watch the Bourne trilogy for Triple Play one of these days… Nah, probably not.
