Show Notes

Remember back in the 70's, after May sweeps, when   in the TV Guide it would say Happy Days had a (New) episode, but when you watched, it was just Fonzie, Ritchie and Laurie Beth reminiscing about what-not or whatever, as an excuse to play old clips and save money on production.  This is that, but oh so much worse.  Enjoy!
- A new discussion with updates on past episodes
- Clips from all season 1 episodes
- An "emily" supercut
-A new "season 3" opening we are testing out

What were you expecting?  Some Images To Illustrate The Podcast Probably the first ad we ever saw in Electronic Games magazine from November 1981 The Amazing "Train Tables" in the Sears Catalog The only picture I have of the N-Scale Xmas-tree stand.  This is from long after it fell into disrepair, but I think you can still still what it might have looked like in it's glory days The "HO Scale Dementia Table" when "everything lived" Dad working on his table the took up most of his room.     ...

There is also discussion and a remix that incorporates the entirety of Season 2. This is probably not the final episode ever of Into The Vertical Blank, but if it was, we'd be satisfied that we achieved what we set out to do: exorcise the demons of our past and discover why we are here in the first place. ...
