And for those of you outside of Canada, yes, these really did air ALL THE TIME.

I have a question about Graham Clark Wilderness Man. Will he return?

A river boat tour did get hit when Dave Matthews' bus dumped "80-100 gallons of liquid human waste."
I think that's why they got in trouble, or at least caught.

Great episode! Lots of moments where I laughed hysterically while riding the train, causing people to look at me funny.

I want to take a stab at explaining Lord of the Rings fans' defensiveness. I think it has to do with the fact that all weirdo teenagers have been reading this book since the 60s, every Led Zeppelin song that isn't about women is about Hobbits and the entire fantasy genre is basically a footnote to Tolkien. And on top of that, the films were excellent adaptations. So I think the nerds are just protective of it because of its longevity and cross-generational appeal. Compare it to something like Star Trek; Don't get me wrong - I love Star Trek, but it appeals primarily to people in a certain age range. It's very much a product of its time. It's the perfect combination of low budget camp and 60s counterculture-influenced idealism, but I don't see people born in the past 20-25 years getting the appeal and I wouldn't try to sell them on it.

Scovel fit in beautifully. There was a three-way rapport with some league leading callbacks there.
