    I'm certainly not going to judge you for letting a 10 year old watch SK--two of my 7 YO's favorite movies are CHRISTINE and MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE--lol. He first watched them with dad & older sister, but... eh. Not too worried about it :)

    ...And I let my son watch Spaceballs, Monty Python, and other goofy things. Laughter is good for the soul.

    LOL...yah..my son loves all the ones you guys just stated. Monty Python is one of his favs. I grew up watching Monty Python...so no permanent damage done...or at least I think..lol!
    Kids at his school look at him like he's nutz when he quotes things from Monty Python or does the silly walks..lol. Guess they weren't raised the right way, jk.

    What I like to do is to welcome on the Profile Page, leaving a MB post unnecessary for mods to deal with. I know, it's silly. But also, I remember getting the welcome from John that day and how good it made feel.

    Thanx. It really made me feel welcome. John would always add "Keep posting!", as well as "I hope all is well with you and yours." I confess, I was hopeful maybe he thought my post was special enough for the "Keep posting!". :) What a great man.

    It's a Mexican slang word for 'talking'?

    Yep, I got personal welcomes from quite a few people actually, including John, Sigmund, Cat In A Bag, and Haunted. Very welcoming and an instantly friendly feel to the board.

    I loved the X-Files, my favourite episode was the Christmas special with the haunted house (I liked the ones with a comedic edge). I remember the Chinga episode, even made a post on the old board asking if it was in a story collection, turns out it's not. Should be though. He should include his original script before Chris Carter changed it, and just change the names to something like Boulder and Sally.

    He had done another one that was completely different that I actually like even better. I think that one was called Molly.

    or in other words:
    what is a four letter word that also means "intercourse"? Well, let's see there is "f*ck" or "talk" (and sometimes people do both at the same time!)

    One of the shows. Just try not to laugh too much at the tech. Or the clothes. Or the haircuts.

    Probably, I am the only one not loving the X-Files... But I loved the episode, it was really cool and scary!

    A kachina is a native American 'voodoo' doll... maybe Steve had that in the back of his mind when he named the episode?

    King wasn't in the episode. Chinga has an interesting history. King originally wrote a script titled Molly which was very different and much more Firestarter-ish. Carter didn't find it scary enough so he wanted changes. King then wrote Chinga, which shares some of the same characters and plot, but should be seen as its own work, not a variation of Molly. I have the first draft of Chinga which is longer and better than the filmed episode. I also have the final draft which, because of Carter's demands, is shorter and less dramatic, but of course closer to the filmed version.

    After reading this post I watched the episode on Amazon Prime, I like it and the fact they were in Maine, what's different in the original script? Anyone know?
