Slow Walk DGL Episode #67!

It's another rambly and very thorough edition of the SWDGL! In our podcast about 5-7 "Talk to Me" we discuss all the aspects of the episode, presenting fan opinions and jumping up and down with excitement about the episode (well, one of us at least!). Let us know how you much of this extra-long podcast you last through!

  1. Hi Daniel and Dave, It's Jane.
    I am designing a web site for DGL season awards. I was wondering what you want me to put in for the web site? What kind of categories do you want?
    This is my final for my info processing class.

  2. In that ending song, it said "Pretend you don't see her, my heart, but smile and pretend to be gay."

    Gosh, I wonder how many kids will completely misunderstand that sentence? The word 'gay' has changed in meaning so much in the last half century!

    Also, in the outtakes, when the dog barked, I thought you said "Finn reviews" :)

  3. Hi Daniel and Dave,
    This has nothing to do with the podcast, but do you guys remember a single of when Ben was a little kid and he has flashbacks and then he meets the guy he was being mean to when he was a kid? And his name was actually Reuben Taylor?
    Or the one always advertised when Caleb was at college and he was with these kids that were drinking and he almost has to do CPR on this girl?
    Thanks,
    Gabby

  4. Jane: For a DGL End of Season Awards you should probably have Best Episode, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Sound Design, Best Scene, and Best Lesson. :-)

    Ian: I think the context will usually make clear what the word "gay" means (i.e. in a 1950s love song it's obviously going to mean "happy"). Any use of the word in our podcast solely refers to that traditional definition. :-) BTW, great job at getting through the whole podcast!

    Gabby: Thanks for the question! You're referring to "A Morrison by Any Other Name" and the two-part "Ruben, Get Your Gun." Those episodes are no longer available, but I believe we'll discuss them briefly in a future podcast. :-)

  5. Haha, well if the young person was AWARE of the original meaning for the word "gay", yeah, but if they were not aware then hahahaaa

  6. Are the episodes Gabby's referring to the ones that were "disavowed" (like a dream in a soap opera :-) ?

    Those episodes written by that person who took over after Beth but before Lori?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yes, Gabby is referring to episodes that were "disavowed" (or, to put it more simply, deleted :-) ). And yes, the episodes were written by W. Mark Whitlock, who wrote them between S6 and S7 (between the Beth period and the Lori/ John period).

    as we approach the hiatus, I hope you do discuss the "lost episodes". I would love for DGL to release the lost episodes at least in download form for the die hard fans.

  9. Now I'm curious about those "lost episodes" "alternate reality" or "parallel worlds" haha!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yes, Mrs. Lundgren and Ian, we will satisfy your curiosity about these "lost episodes" after S6 (although we won't discuss them as fully as canon episodes). I don't believe there's much chance of the shows being released, though. :-)

  11. Well, then, maybe you guys can provide a synopsis :-)

  12. Well, Gabby provided a short description of the episodes' plots, but we will expand on those at a later time. :-)

    Also, I wanted to clarify something we incorrectly corrected John on in this podcast. We said that the eating establishment in Coleraine is the Burger Basket, not the Burger Barn, but of course there is indeed a Burger Barn in Coleraine! Our confusion was probably because we were thinking of the Burger Basket referred to in "Whine Not" (which maybe changed its name to the Burger Barn later?). Sorry about that, John! Even the biggest DGL fans occasionally make silly mistakes. :-)

  13. "Well, Gabby provided a short description of the episodes' plots" -- Oh! I think that must have happened during one of the busy times in my life where I didn't read the blog... What was the date of that one? Thanks!

  14. Right above, the third post down. :-) But I'll quote them here again:
    "A Morrison by Any Other Name": "[T]he one always advertised when Caleb was at college and he was with these kids that were drinking and he almost has to do CPR on this girl."
    "Ruben Get Your Gun" (two parts): "[W]hen Ben was a little kid and he has flashbacks and then he meets the guy he was being mean to when he was a kid. And his name was actually Reuben Taylor."

  15. Oh! I thought you were referring to a comprehensive list! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well, that is a comprehensive list of all the now-deleted episodes that were aired--there were only three of them. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh! Ok! I had earlier thought that it was an entire season!

  18. Thank you for answering my question! What was the third deleted episode? And why did they delete them? They were good, from what I remember of them!

  19. The three episodes that aired on the radio were 7-1a "A Morrison by Any Other Name" (that's the one with Caleb at college), 7-2a "Ruben, Get Your Gun," and 7-3a "Ruben Get Your Gun, 2." So if you were to count the two-parter as one episode I guess that only makes two deleted shows. Or perhaps you're referring to the three-parter scheduled to air after that, which would be 7-4a through 7-6a, "Bridges." "Bridges" was put into the currently available version of S7, edited and renamed "The Journey."

    They were deleted due to listener and radio station feedback. :-)

  20. I wish I could have gotten copies of them. :(

  21. I don't believe they were even available as singles, so only the lucky few that recorded them from the radio or the web have "copies." :-)
