Final "normal" episode for this season...half hour season (series?) finale next week.
I hope someone kills Joy...
What was the line of dialogue that was removed?
they mayors illegal family holding and game thing was funny umm but the rest of it was pretty gross except for suiciding mayor to much scary though so bad episode that probably should have stayed banned
......................Anyone got a can of gasoline and match
So the series ends next week?
The horror...the horror...my jaw and other parts are not going up anytime soon.
I can't tell you how many times I yelled out a "WHAAAAAAAAT!?", because it was alot. Like when they were telling us about the actual re-birthing process, and how Tom's family was somehow illegal. Surreal, in a way. Though, not that funny.
Oh yeah, and the video game part. That was the high point, no doubt.
Note to Tim & Eric: NEVER show Joy in anything even REMOTELY resembling a porno video ever again.
That being said, I did like the video game segment, Tom registering his family, and the Mayor's suicides.
Tom's life is so insanely miserable that I rather liked that. I must be disturbed.
The video game was the highlight.
"Heart of Darkness," Jefferton Style
Eh, I dunno. I think Tom at it's weirdest gets into "Eraserhead" territory myself. Everything is hideous, disturbing, ugly, and somehow, incredibly funny. "Re-birth" is the ultimate expression of this.
You know, the Mayor's little icon on the Family Center screen is a lot less annoying than that damn Word paper clip.
Dr. Victor Papar continues the tradition TGTTM has blazed in making all of humanity seem ugly, sweaty and dangerously insane. Also, I can totally beleive Virtual Joy could breath fireballs of death from her mouth.
Amazingly enough "rebirth" has nothing to do with Headmasters, and a lot more to do with Dr. Papar pointing to his groinal area, which I find even more disturbing. This episode is one kid with a bat away from being an episode of "Paranoia Agent."
I mean, c'mon. A birth-canal slip n' slide. That's just full of wrong. Joy at the end of said slip and slide WITH HER LEGS IN THE *****ING AIR is wrong on at least subatomic level, poisoning the very stuff of our creation.
And yet, this episode voyaged into even darker territory.
. . .I can see how that ending would lead to some controversy now. I myself screamed so loud I didn't recognize my own voice. Possibly the most disturbing thing I've sat through since Cannibal Holocaust, but much much funnier. Shorter, too. A-
This show goes all-out to ruin Tom's life. I love it! Registration, the virtual reality, and "suicides." This is the kind of insanity I love to watch on TV.
This is why I like Tom Goes to the Mayor, it's twisted and oh so funny. My favorite part was the "porn" partly because Tom consented and the acting was on the level of the subject matter. Good stuff, A+.
Bleeding retinas, scarred cerebral cortexes, and all because of photoshop
There are a great many exclamations I could have lead this post with, but they seem inadequate and superfluous.
The video game segment was a distinct high point, but the Family Center with it's amusing pre-recorded messages and the mind-scarring insanity of Porking with the Peters stood out too. I just laughed a whole lot.
Beyond that, I can only say that this is the only episode of Tom Goes to the Mayor that I can like without reservation. If Tim and Eric can get near this territory again, I think they'll deserve some golden idols, which I admit are more to anger the one true God more than anything else.
***** out of *****
That pretty much summarizes my reaction to the Parkers porno film that the mayor makes at the end of the episode.
One thing's for sure: tonight's episode of TGTTM is definitely one of the most bizarre episodes of the series.
I enjoy Tom Goes to the Mayor and I enjoyed tonights episode it was disturbingly funny which is what I like about Tim and Eric's sense of humor. Hopefully next week doesn't mark the end to the series.
This is the episode that was "banned", previously?
So what, was something edited out from it? That sound clip of the "bad" scene that AS aired a few weeks ago would make me guess it was something sexual.
Or did AS slap a TV-MA rating on it, and it was good to go?
The deleted line was "Get off of me" from Joy. This was supposed to be said shortly after "Tom, what are you doing?" At least, this is the only line that was in the Closed Captioning that wasn't heard.
Remember: Closed Captioning is your friend, whether you are deaf, want to know what hard-to-understand dialogue is, or if you just want to see if there were any last minute line changes (or deletions, in this case.)
That's it? That's what postponed this episode? That's what got Turner S&P in a tizzy? Removing that line made the rest of the scene okay?
