Different strokes indeed

I kinda remember the Tom & Jerry episode.. still seems accurate.

WTF?
 
2014-04-26 07:50:58 AM  
Diff'rent Strokes sure was rapey. Seem to remember an episode where Kimberly and Arnold go to some guy's apartment because, something to do with a model rocket or space photos. The guy tries to rape Kimberly while Arnold is in the livingroom. Also think there was something like that with the show's version of Cousin Oliver but why would anyone care or even watch at that point in the show's decline?

Oh, and I do remember the DS9 epsiode.  One of my least favorites.

That episode of American Dad was one of the last I watched.

I agree with TFA that it was hella creepy.

That Mr. Drummond always creeped me out. Lilly white old man with a young daughter adopts 2 black boys, probably to peep at some underaged interracial while he uses the younger one as a midget rape doll. No wonder those kids had such a rough time after that show.

I was scarred as a very little boy by an episode of The Adventures of Black Beauty, a British 70s kids' show about the horse. But this one episode had a scene were the little boy hero looked out the window in the middle of the night and there was a dark figure with a skull face staring right back at him.

I still have trouble looking out windows at night.

Anything Otto-related in Sons of Anarchy. Seriously, a psychoanalyst would have a field day with Kurt Sutter.
"So, Mr Sutter, you have created a show and cast yourself as a character who will be tormented and degraded until his death is a blessed release from a living hell of insanity and pain. Interesting. Oh, and you also cast your wife in the show? And what is your plan for her? I see... I see... And after that? Well that's quite a lot of rape, Mr Sutter. There's more? I see... I see... Well it seems our time is about up, but I'm going to suggest that we schedule a LARGE number of appointments so we can explore the roots of this."

There are a ton of episodes of The X-Files that still freak me out. Aliens farking scare me. When I was a little kid I had this weird fascination with UFOs and aliens. I'd go and read all the books in the library about UFOs, then lay awake at night terrified that I was going to be abducted by aliens. I'd tell myself "alien abductions are just sleep paralysis, they don't really exist", but my mind kept telling me that from out of the darkness a bunch of grey skinned black eyed aliens were going to materialize, I'd become paralyzed, a beam of light would come through the window, and they'd drag me with their long, spindly fingers back to the ship. I learned to sleep with the lights on. It wouldn't be so bad if the aliens looked like giant lizards or the things in Aliens, but the Greys just fall way too deep in the uncanny valley. Freaking things are damn creepy. My reaction, if the UFO people turn out to be not full of bullshiat and Greys exist, would be to kill it dead. Alien just materialized in my bedroom? Kill it till it stops moving! UFO just crashed in my backyard and a injured alien just got out and is pleading for help. Kill it till it stops moving! UFO just landed on the national mall and they've sent some sort of ambassador out. Kill it till it stops moving!

I see that the reviewer guy missed the point of the South Park episode in favour of listing a few choice moments.

Or did he do that for all of the shows?

A happy ending would be too much to ask for. But I just hope there is enough complexity in there for something more than a bleak depressing grind through misery and pain into more misery and more pain.

I had roughly the same fear of aliens as a kid. "Fire in the Sky" didn't help either. But about the time "Signs" rolled out, I realized how silly being afraid of aliens was. I lean towards the mother hypothesis, where our memories of our parents as a baby (that can't quite process visual imagery yet) are what led to our fear of the grey alien depiction. Something like that.

Anyway, the meaning of the episode seems to be 'Women love money and nothing else can penetrate their icy hearts.'


Chick like typing detected.

I've seen that episode. It didn't stick with me. It was simple fact made light of in comedy form.

Kimberly and Arnold were hitchhiking and the guy picked them up.  Sam was kidnapped too but not for rapey reasons--the guy's son had died and he was looking for a replacement.  For a show that started out as a ditzy sitcom it got very heavy-handed.

The disturbing events at that concert were probably responsible for him trying to molest Arnold and Dudley, years later.

"This episode is sad rather than scary, when you think about the fact that this is actually the reality for millions of people."

Not in America.  Fark me you're all a bunch of fatties.
 
2014-04-26 10:25:07 AM  
The one that haunted me for years was an episode of The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest (shut up) in which Jonny and Hadji are deliberately trapped under the exhaust pit of a space shuttle, and the villain (Surd? it's been too long) forces the dad to watch the launch knowing them to be under there.

Of course the little dog knocks a ladder down there and saves the day, but that part's not seen on the villain's video feed, so for a while in the episode Benton Quest, the all-knowing father-figure, is a broken man weeping on a kids program.

Jorn the Younger: That episode of American Dad was one of the last I watched.

It was creepy because they did a good job of illustrating what anorexia/bulimia can do to a person. I remember the first time watching it and they caught me by surprise too. Plus they just made him look like absolute hell.

I'd recommend picking the show back up. No other episode reaches that level of creepiness and there's a ton of hilarious ones.

Suburgatory is also doing a good job, unwillingly, of showing what anorexia/bulimia can do to a person. Allie Grant (Lisa Shay) has gone from being a healthy girl to frighteningly thin. Very likeable actress. Hope she'll be okay.

I don't see a happy ending, and I'm fine with lots of misery and pain. I suppose I should ramp down my expectations but I can't help myself. Mind if I favorite you as a SOA fan and we can touch base next fall?
 
2014-04-26 11:24:28 AM  
I think people are missing part of the point of the Tom and Jerry "suicide", it was never meant to be taken literally as a canonical "event", it was a non-sequitur if you will because it was definitely not the last time it was implied that Tom and Jerry died or had something permanently debilitating happen to them at the conclusion of an episode.

And I've been wanting to say this for a long time: people back then, the kids back then, at least during the re-runs in the late 70s-early eighties, were a LOT tougher!   And speaking of the 80s, particularly the first 4 years of it, anyone from the younger set reading this should know that there was tons, tons, TONS of weird farking shiat on TV that has never again seen the light of day, not even on YouTube.

You have no idea what kind of society we used to have, the things we laughed at and the things that didn't bother us would astound you. This Tom and Jerry thing ain't shiat.

Today's world is far more sensitive in a word...I think that's part of why I harbor some shame for having cried over a cartoon dog. :P
