    Is it possible that JD’s TV might have been off in tint with the whole Phillip Michael Thomas thing??? Maybe it was just a bad television that made black people look purple.

    I loved THE THING WITH TWO HEADS with football star Rosie Grier and THE MAN WITH X-RAY EYES’ Ray Milland about a white bigot who gets his head grafted onto a black man’s body, but they leave Rosie Grier’s head on there too–so they bicker back and forth the whole movie. I guess it was considered a blaxpoitation film, but I think the film was ahead of its time and really talks about some powerful issues regarding race relations by forcing a bigot to work with a black guy to save both of their asses. It’d kind be like if Newt Gingrich’s head was grafted onto Shaq’s body and they had to solve a crime today. It was a different time back then, but the film speaks to how emotionally charged we are today versus how surprisingly open-minded things were back then (maybe open-minded is not the right word, but willing to deal with topics that folks get scared to talk about today). I doubt the film would ever be made today, but it was campy fun if I remember it correctly. It’s got a two headed guy riding a motorcycle, which is worth the price of admission alone.

    And no love for the ladies? How about Colleen Wing and Misty Knight? And how the unbreakable duo of Tootie and Natalie? Or…man there really aren’t many white/black team ups with gals. Why is that?

    Anyway, great show, guys!

    Awwwww!! I got so much love on this episode! Miss you crazy kids…

    Yeah, I think my favorite B/W crew might just be Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson. For a while, Sam wondered why Steve (being white) was willing to fight crime as “Captain America and Falcon.” Steve didn’t care about Sam’s skin, just his heart.

    One of my favorite parts of the relationship, though, was when Steve could not see all of the “bad”, in the world. Sam was, literally, another set of eyes for Steve to view the world.

    Someday, I’ll make my way back to Gutter Talk, but, for now, remember to buy all of your comics and comic goodies at Comic Zen, in Lansdale, PA! 😉

    And, yes, Gutter Talk should be its own thing!
