    Was the Power Rangers-esque show that Tyler was thinking of Big Bad Beetleborgs? I remember it being an especially ridiculous take on the Power Rangers concept – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CeiXE60prpY

    As for the relationship between Hitchcock and Welles, supposedly Welles really didn’t care for Hitchcock’s American work (based on some of the interviews collected in “My Lunches with Orson”), but Hitchcock seemed to be an admirer of Welles. At the very least he liked Touch of Evil, since he seems to have cast Janet Leigh in Psycho based on her performance in Welles’ film, and originally intended to open Psycho with a long take a la the one in Touch of Evil.

        Wow. I don’t remember this, and I tend to remember a lot of obscure 90s pop culture. But maybe it just never aired anywhere in Canada.

        I do remember Super Human Samurai Cyber Squad though.

    It’s Joan Fontaine not Joan Crawford in “Rebecca”! :O
    I would also say the book is worth reading, if only for a great passage that I seriously relate to, where the narrator is thinking through scenarios in her mind and her husband notes how her face just went through several different emotions in a moment. I do this a LOT.

      Yeah, I realized my mix-up shortly after the episode was over. Sorry about that.

    Oh great “Comic Con Fever?!?!?!” I’d rather have an eternity of David telling that story again about how his favorite Seinfeld character is the one-off Uncle who’s writing a memoir based on his own experiences than any of this comic con talk. I ignore the main episode in the summer to avoid comic con talk, keep it out of the movie journals would ya fellas?

    Jk a little, love the show.

    “Wellesian Tomfoolery” is in fact from Leonard Maltin
