Apologies for the recent delays on Watch & Learn. Whiskey’s video wizard Joey and I have been putting together an extra special video feature that’s taken a bit more time and effort than we anticipated (it’s going to be totally worth it, though. NOTHING CAN PREPARE YOU!) Also, I’ve been searching for another site that streams the rest of REQUIEM FOR PHANTOM, but my efforts have been to no avail. I’d love to continue watching this, but part of the fun is having you lunatics along for the journey and if we’re out of episodes online, then that’s a wee hard to do.
I might do a poll about it soon....
Anyway, the show’s taken a turn for suave & styish lately. I feel like this would have commercial breaks for Guiness and Rolex if I were watching it on TV. Considering that my typical “viewing attire” usually consists of just my boxers, I’m starting to feel a little under-dressed without a smoking jacket or a velvet bathrobe on.
Cherry picking second-in-commands in an elaborate coup to take out the West Coast mob is certainly a clever and ruthless scheme on Inferno’s part. As impressive at that is, though, I’m not quite sure what to make of a syndicate whose inner circle seems to include Tim Gunn, Tony Montana and the vampire Lestat. Considering how they finally ice Adam West in this episode, I can’t help feeling like this is some kind of deranged stunt season of THE SURREAL LIFE where the end task is to take over the criminal underworld. At this rate, I’m wondering if David Hasselhoff is going to be revealed to be the head of Inferno's East Coast equivalent.
On a serious note (‘cause I’m such a serious guy,) I will say that Zwei’s whole opening monolog about how, whatever side of the law he’s on, he’s always killing to eat… that was pretty insightful stuff. I guess, if I were to extend the metaphor, I’m doing some killin’ for my supper as well. I’m killing all you lunatics with my insight.
