Kids In The Hall

"Kids In The Hall" Season 3: Episode 17. "Darcy Pennell" show interviews Francesca Fiore who stars in a film about her having seven sets of genitals (!). The organ (no, not that type of organ) intro on Darcy's theme music sounds like the opening for "Punchlines" by Mates Of State.

My TV has a strange way of mixing the sound when it comes to dialogue and background music. We found our TV across the street from our neighbors throwing it away, mostly likely because they purchased one of those fancy Flat Screen TVs that everyone tries to convince you is superior. Meh. Why throw something out that's in perfect working order? All we had to do was buy a universal remote and we were set (harhar get it? Like TV set). Oh yeah, and we had to lug it up a flight of stairs in our apartment to test the thing out. 

So back to the odd speaker mix, dialogue a lot of times is low, while the booming music cues are overpowering. I'm not sure why that is, I've already tested all the different options in the settings and they all sound the same. Due to this minor problem, I'll take advantage of Netflix's "Subtitle" option that is available on certain shows and movies. Sometimes though, they'll have the wrong "subtitles" programmed into the show. Its kind of funny. Anyway, that's why the subtitles are on in this picture. What can I say, I've always watched TV most of the time with the Closed Captions on.  Did you know that the scary wolf-type creature in "The Neverending Story" has neon green captions?
