it felt like a mash-up of that and the Caddyshack pool scene - with a Stand By Me 'lard ***' line thrown in for good effectI've only seen the first episode but it was still great. I loved Billy walking out by the pool to Moving In Stereo as all the moms ogled him. A great nod to the iconic Phoebe Cates pool scene in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Just so clever to flip that scene.
It's great how different people can pick out different references and homages. I didn't think of the lardass line, but that's a good catch.it felt like a mash-up of that and the Caddyshack pool scene - with a Stand By Me 'lard ***' line thrown in for good effect
(and then of course the phoebe cates reference later about dustin's gf)
Talking about your spoiler, I loved it as well. I thought it was hilarious. And overall I enjoyed season 3. It was really good. I also watched all 8 in a row. The only problem with me doing that is I have no clue what happened in each episode because it feels like one big movie that I watched. I don't know where in the "movie" I liked something.Just finished the whole thing.
I will say Season 3 seemed to be a much more self aware/referential and maybe in some ways sillier season than the previous 2, but I don't mean that in a bad way. If the first two were classic Amblin/Stephen King mashups, Season 3 felt more like a higher budgeted adventure story with more overt comedic elements. The inclusion of Back to the Future as the touchstone movie felt apt.
And I'm sure it will have naysayers, but that Neverending Story gag in episode 8 was absolutely incredible. Like I went back and rewatched it three times. It just came completely out of nowhere and was such a hilarious tension breaker and, well, Dustin+Suzy 4ever.
I will get into more detail later. Overall really enjoyed it. There are some things to pick at, but I wouldn't have watched all 8 episodes in a row if I weren't into it.
I just finished the season. The infiltrate the Russian Mall compound storyline was a big misstep. It was awful. Seriously, air ducts and elevators and keystone cop Russians? I could go into more detail but I'm lazy. Erica may be one of the most annoying characters in the history of television. The other two storylines were fine. Overall I enjoyed the season, but was surprised at how bad parts of it were.
