Topic: Doomsday Prophecies and Scenarios

 

  • The panel agrees that if the End of the Worlds comes about they would eat Major Monocle…which is why we like to take him out to eat so often.

 

  • Oktober doesn’t want to talk about Zombies….which of course leads to a quick conversation about the Zombie Apocalypse.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Nabbit relates a story about his thought process when they turned on the Hadron Super Collider. It illustrates the point that even if you can feel the anxiety, explaining it to someone else could be extremely difficult.

 Topic: Does the Fall TV schedule matter anymore?

 

  • Oktober thinks that the schedule is more symbolic. A lot of things start in fall, like school and the holidays.

 

  • Nabbit thinks its habit, it always been that way and there’s no reason to change it.

 

 

 

 

 

  • The panelists talk about memorable things from past fall TV seasons. Major Monocle talks about the premiere of “Friends” to a groan of the rest of the panel. Oktober talks about an old episode of “That’s Incredible” with footage of ghost sounds in a castle. Luke’s was “America’s Most Wanted” which started a whole industry around true crime stories.

 

  • And then there’s the flip side of that Some of the worst Fall TV’s openings. Oktober’s was the original V (The Series). Major Monocle trolls the panel by saying Fox’s Firefly, but later admits he was upset it didn’t continue not that it was a bad show. Luke remembers the Night Stalker reboot and the Kojak reboot (both in 2005)…both were products of their era (the 1970’s) and were not meant to be updated.

 

Game: “Drink It” or “Sink It” Challenge

 

This one is called the Green Dream. The panel really enjoyed the taste of this. Although Nabbit is a bit confused when he says it tastes “cold.” The Tropical Punch vodka, pineapple juice and mango syrup gives it a real complex but pleasurable blend of flavors. Nabbit suggests that it is only missing one thing….a little umbrella. The full recipe is one the main page before this post if you want to give it a try.

 Topic: Bigfoot

 

 

 

  • The panel debates what to call a group of Sasquatches…it ranges from Big Footies and Sasquai to a Moose of Sasqhatch.

 

  • Then we get into the Patterson-Gimlin Film. Oktober is torn between the fact that she knows it to be fake, but it inspires people to ask questions. Nabbit believes the footage may be significant for other historical reasons….the first footage of a Furry.

 

 

  • Oktober brings up her story about seeing a bear with mange and that it may be something like that that people have seen.

 

 

 

 

Game: FAKE News

 

In this game Luke made up several short news stories and the panelists had to finish the story.

Here they are:

 

  • A series of thefts at a local firehouse lead to a surprising conclusion yesterday. Firemen noticed that small items were being stolen from their kitchen. Security camera footage eventually revealed that a family of monkeys had moved into a wooded are nearby. Biologists were called in to remove them…how did they remove them?

 

  • A city council official is suffering some embarrassment after his proposal failed to pass. During a recent public session, he proposed adding a day to the calendar celebrating what?

 

  • Archeologists have finally revealed what they had discovered in a nearby prehistoric settlement.  In amongst the fire pits, semi permanent houses and animal bones the Head Archeologist said that they had discovered what?
