  22. Manhunter is terrific! Michael Mann directed that and Brian Cox plays Hannibal Lecter. Yes, that was remade into Red Dragon (the name of the novel) which came out in 2002 with Anthony Hopkins. Actually, a year before that we finally got the Silence Of The Lambs sequel Hannibal which was without Jodie Foster and directed by Ridley Scott. Julianne Moore took over the role of Clarice. The only thing that I remember about Hannibal was a scene with Ray Liotta that almost made me pass out in the theater. My favorite Jonathan Demme film is Something Wild.

  24. Susie addressed this on an episode last week. I’m paraphrasing, but I believe the gist of it was that they were encountering audio issues when they were uploading the episodes to YouTube. I seem to think that YouTube was blocking the audio, but maybe there was another issue. She also mentioned that she was going to try to upload them again. I noticed that there was an upload recently on the account and yes, it’s from October. YouTube be crazy!
