It’s one on one dork dialog this episode. Dana Gould  (follow him on twitter @danajgould ) is a great comic, actor and writer and one of the first comics I knew who committed to what I call, at this writing, dorkiness, in his act. His material is always personal and family related but it also has always gone to his favorite films and games. His love of Science Fiction and Horror has a nice sense of depth in his act, and when you talk to him. This is a great episode. Enjoy!

 

Lucha Va Voom – show Dana and Blaine Capatch crack wise on regularly.

Communion: A True Story – Whitley Strieber

Planet of the Apes Statues - Lawgiver, Ceasar (from Battle For The Planet of the Apes)

 

Dana Gould recommended watching and reading:

Sherlock – BBC One – I can’t find it on BBC America
Jekyll – BBC One by the same guy, also not currently airing… but DVDs abound from Netflix in both cases.

HBO Upcoming, he recommends: Game of Thrones

 

And… when I pressed him for old Dracula movies:

The Night Stalker Pilot – 1972

Dark Shadows

Horror of Dracula

Brides of Dracula

 

Magazine
Famous Monsters of Filmland

 

It’s a new year – feel free to donate if you haven’t. And… take care of each other out there. For crying out loud. Jackie

    And, Gesundheit, Jackie! (Lotta sneezes in this episode.)

    FWIW Dept: KWSU, the Washington State U PBS station in Pullman, will begin running SHERLOCK on MASTERPIECE THEATER on Sunday the 16th o' Jan, repeat it several times, and run the next two episodes each starting the following Sundays. Check your local PBS outlets (I didn't quite get to run the report to see where else it might be playing, but hope to this w/e.)

    Well, there we go...it's Clam Gulch, and it's more an exurb of Anchorage...my spelling and geography improved, as well, this episode of The Dork Forest...

    The one-panel daily newspaper comic I think you refer to, Jackie, is Bunny Hoest's THE LOCKHORNS, though ANDY CAPP was certainly a similar strip (with a slightly different focus). THE BICKERSONS was a radio show (and occasionally done in/for other formats/delivery systems, including LPs) that was Very similar to THE LOCKHORNS...starring Frances Langford and Don Ameche.

    My favorite suburb-name (to my birth-city, Fairbanks, AK): Clam Gultch.

    English might be one of the few European languages to have separate, mutually exclusive words for monkeys and apes (I should look into German and the other Germanic languages...certainly the Romance languages don't)...

    You might actually find the early Hammer Dracula films a bit unnerving, moreso than the Nosferatu black comedy (or maybe not)...they are a bit florid, though less so than the Lugosi DRACULA. My own favorite so far among the adaptations has been the BBC 1970s version with Louis Jourdan as Dracula, fairly recently on dvd and probably worth a look for you. THE NIGHT STALKER the film, and its sequel THE NIGHT STRANGLER, are both very good, and unnerving, indeed (after these two were huge successes, the first unfortunate KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER series was commissioned, but they didn't have the wit to get Richard Matheson, who wrote the telefilm scripts [the first based on an unpublished novel by a beginning writer], or similarly good folks, to write for the series. It showed.).

    The second season/"series" (as they put it in the UK) of SHERLOCK will also be run on MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! on PBS.

    Funny Dana Gould should mention the often impressive YOURS TRULY, JOHNNY DOLLAR radio crime drama series, inasmuch as the earlier description of his character being loosely based on Vincent Price among others and Gould being interested in putting the character in fish-out-of-water predicaments reminded me of both Count Floyd (Joe Flaherty) and the hack actor character Dr. Tongue (John Candy) on SCTV (Tongue finding himself in unlikely roles after his career in '50s/'60s horror films, including a POSEIDON ADVENTURE/TOWERING INFERNO parody), and of Price's appearance as a version of himself (playing Vincent Price, if you follow), helping insurance investigator Johnny Dollar look into a murder, art forgery and theft, in a mid-'50s episode of that series.

    This episode rocketed along...not that the others drag, but, as you say, this series seems to be tailor-made for Gould and you to work it.

    I look forward to THRONES, though we haven't had a first-rate fantasy series for a season or three, since the short runs of JOURNEYMAN on NBC and THE MIDDLEMAN on ABC Family...though the also shortlived ABC series EASTWICK, if a bit cutesy, wasn't too shabby (a bit better than either the film or the Updike novel the film's based on).

    Newly out on DVD and woth at least a Netflixing is the series hosted from 1960-1962 by Boris Karloff on NBC, and at times the best horror and suspense anthology we've had so far, THRILLER. Certainly Matheson role-model Robert Bloch was among the excellent scriptwriters they tapped (Bloch just coming to H'wood on the strength of such work as the novel PSYCHO, the basis of the film...). Also...how's the sound system on your big tv setup? Ever seen the original film of CAT PEOPLE, made by the Val Lewton unit at RKO back in their heroic years (post KING KONG and just a bit after Orson Welles was there doing CITIZEN KANE and THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS), and best enjoyed with at least decent-theater-quality sound? (I was lucky enough to see it first in a revival house.)

    FMOF magazine fans, particularly if they like Ray Bradbury short stories, might also like THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION (which over the last sixty-two years has published a number of Bradbury, Bloch, Shirley Jackson and Matheson stories, including Matheson's first, in 1949, among so many others), WEIRD TALES (which in earlier incarnations also has published no little Bloch, Bradbury, and Matheson), CEMETERY DANCE and BLACK STATIC (which both feature a fair amount of film and related coverage along with fiction), among a number of others...

    Thanks, as always.

    A quick pre-listen note: As you may discuss, SHERLOCK was imported into the States for MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! on PBS, but they've taken it down in favor of the current MAST/CLASSIC series on http://www.pbs.org/ ...look for repeats and late showings on PBS stations.
    http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/sherlock/series1.html (or, of course, as you note, Netflix awaits)

    Steven Moffat has also done good work on DOCTOR WHO and the sitcom COUPLING, among other things...
