    Great show guys! The longer format is better than chopping it at one hour.

    For the kids out there “the original” The Thing was released in the 80’s (rather than the 70’s), and it was a remake of “The Thing From Another World” from the 50’s.

    You are correct. 1982. I mis-spoke, but we were covering a lot of territory very quickly. I’m aware it is a remake of the 50’s version, but I was speaking to an audience that is likely only aware of the most recent version from 2011 (and likely not even that one)…hence me referring to the 1982 film as “the original”. Also, I was speaking of the puppets and effects of Rob Bottin specifically, which further puts it in context as to which film I was referring to. In any case, thanks for being the fact checking police to an audience that likely doesn’t care about the menial and inconsequential details of the films, but rather are more interested in the broad strokes of my career…which is what the show was about.
