I was researching a topic for a library program while it was playing. It was comfortable having it on.

I know what you mean. I do the same thing. Am usually on the computer playing chess and reading and doing book marketing but look up at the TV when favorite scenes come on.

TNOT READY-MADE CORPSE is up next.

Is this the episode that was being filmed when Michael Garrison died in that terrible accident in his home while celebrating the success of the first season of TWWW?

Very sad.

And, the episode is not one of my favorites, though it has a cool scene here and there, of course.

Yes Roger....this is the one! Micheal Garrison's final episode. Ironic how it's titled Ready-Made Corpse too as he died during filming. Kinda creepy sounding huh.... Yes was very sad to here. Maybe Season 3 wouldn't have been more Westerny like it was had he not passed away....

My problem with Ready-Made Corpse is that Jim would have fared better bringing me along, instead of Artie. I mean not only was he no help, he was rather buffoonish. Handing Jim his hat might have been his best accomplishment in the episode.
So after the photographer knocks out his subject and Jim with smoke (colorful, but not really even close to Jim, but still effective) he escapes down the staircase. Alas, a trained secret service agent awaits, so he is immediately caught, oh wait a minute, said agent lowers his head, so he cannot see anything, and begins running up the stairs, not wanting to wait for him to run down to him, and the villain bops the agent on the head with a stick that probably isn't even strong enough to support a child's pinwheel, and this renders said agent useless. Now in Simian Terror, Artie was pummeled multiple times from behind with a very sturdy walking stick, but this was a love-tap that had the same effect. Why even bother with the stick? Just blow on him as you pass him on the stairs and he would have been blown over the railing. Very disappointing to see such a good agent perform so meekly and weakly.

All true, sadly.

Complaints allowed for cut scenes, though. I miss the one where Artie and Jim first wake to find themselves stiff and their weapons rusted. And I dearly love the little moment when Artie blows off the cobwebs with a mini-raspberry moment. Pfttt!

Ok I will definitely agree with you there, Nydiva. They even shortened the opening scene by cutting the train traveling and the first part inside. Started the ep with Jim saying "Artie, the Telegraph key is missing". Good thing we have the full episodes on dvd huh. I'm just glad I can still watch it on regular TV.

yes, cutting out the scene where Jim and Artie feel like they're 90-years-old is not good

Maybe my favorite episode. Certainly a top five. And the beginning and the ending pairing makes this one go on forever, theoretically. If you ever read Isabel Allende's 'House of the Spirits' the ending of the book takes you back to the beginning, without realizing that is what is happening until it hits you right in the face.
If I had been Artie I would have pushed a bit harder about not entering the house the second time.

this excellent episode had two of THE best freeze-frames along with music in the whole series

the first freeze-frame and music with old Day laughing was great and the freeze-frame and music of Caroline Day's portrait crying was also great

super cool

First I thought you meant they deleted the whole scene in the well but no just a little part with that comment Artie made. Most was still there. But I do hate certain parts being cut. For the most part it was still great. Love that episode!!

The scene with Artie doing the eulogy at his own funeral was funny. Liked when Colonel Richmond was mouthing, "Shut...up..." to Artie.

A fun episode which is one of the two first episodes that I remember seeing back when I was 9 years-old in 1971.

TONTINE and SKULLS are the first two episodes that I have a memory of watching.

I thought very highly of 'Skulls' when I was a kid, but mostly laugh through it now. I thought with the editing that they might keep the part where Artie was hit with all those sharp bits of metal after the bucket exploded, but I see they also took that out.
Then you've got 'iron hook' Harper with the attachment that is about 14 feet long, a precursor to Nightmare on Elm Street perhaps.
Once West reaches the top of the well, we've got the watchman walking by, "Three o'clock and all's well", huh?, didn't you just hear the explosion? Aren't you a bit curious about that?
Then this bit about curfew. We've got the worst of the worst, but they've got to be in bed by a certain time?
I do like the freeze frames for the pitchfork attack and the gun being fired, so at least that was fun. Not a bad way for West to break the jail door as well.

INFERNAL MACHINE up next.

Not a favorite. GET SMART was big when this episode was made and Jim says some kind of line like, "Sorry about that, Chef." instead of "Chief."

Yes that was a pun strait from a Get Smart quote haha. I like Infernal Machine but it's definitely more a comedy than a serious themed ep. I'll be watching tonight! Can't wait to spot which scenes get cut. It's like a game now....Catch which scenes or lines of dialogue were removed!

Btw Roger...Just saw the super cool Tottering Tontine ep is airing on Christmas Eve! Merry Christmas for sure with that huh! Heroes and Icons aired Whirring Death as their Christmas episode with Dr. Loveless and his exploding toys.

LIMBO is up next.

The Night Of The Lord Of Limbo happens to be my personal all-time favorite episode. Hope that Me TV does not chop it up too much.

What a well-done episode by the whole cast and crew and writers and musicians etc. They had a limited budget and very limited special effects but managed to make this great ep. RC did some of his best acting in the whole series when he thought that Artie had been killed.

One of my favorites also. I am partial to the Gothic episodes, and tying that together with the Civil War makes it even better. I know this one is set in Vicksburg, but I always enjoyed the San Francisco/New Orleans episodes as those cities always lended so much of themselves to the story.

I squeezed Feathered Fury in between watching a 14 hour Starsky & Hutch New Years Eve marathon on Cozi TV! Best way to spend the last day of the year!!
