Rush: true.

Rush: Is there a hornet song?

Len Freeman: Trendle etc. went for Classic music to save on paying copyrights

Rush: Almost a drone-like shot in this opening.

Rush: So, the trains were on separate tracks all along!

Mike n Rachel in DC: So is Kato Japanese, Korean or Filipino is this one?

Len Freeman: Chasing down another “racket”

Rush: How are you this evening, CD?

Rush: Yes, Len!

Cdirus: OK, cold here in Ohio finally

Rush: Winter is indeed wintering!

Cdirus: Actually liked the warmer weather we’ve been having better than this cold.

Rush: “Flying Coffins” is an apt title for this episode!

Rush: Understood, CD!

Cdirus

Mike n Rachel in DC: they’re actually not flying much…mostly hitting the groud

Cdirus: Don’t like his grin

Rush: “Winter’s freeze brings forth spring’s green trees.”

Cdirus: More likely we’ll go straight from winter to summer.

Mike n Rachel in DC: A San Diego saying Rush? 🙂

Rush: More help than he realizes…HM…

Rush: m/R: Off the cuff…

Rush: Trying to cheer CD up!

hounder: we’ve gone from summer to winter in 24 hours.lol

Rush: Ouch!

Cdirus: Yup, saturday it was in the mid 40’s, then saturday night it was down into the teens.

Len Freeman: Columbia used a very similar car for the Batmobile … so could use the same footage

hounder: and by sat will be back in the 70’s

Rush: The Hornet uses proper English, knowing his “whos” from his whoms”….

Cdirus: We’re expecting temps in the 40

Cdirus: in the 40’s and rain again. Like the past two weekends.

Rush: Not too bad…

Cdirus: But could be worse, could be snow.

Rush: Nice driving!

Cdirus: Looks like they practiced those moves many times.

Cdirus: Lots of skid marks

Rush: Yes.

Rush: This is one of the few times we will see a car crash like that and NOT burst into flames!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Probably used their flame budget on the plane crashes…

Cdirus: Funny how a car can go off a cliff and just burst into flames

Rush: Nice angles camera in the last clip

Rush: Yes, CD!

Rush: Or not roll.

hounder: amazing how precisely timed the green hornet’s toys are.

Rush: Yes…a filght school to stay away from: “Devine Wind School of Flight.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: It’s always a give-away when the course of instruction doesn’t include “how to land.”

Rush: ce ploy by Chan!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Especially when they just want to see if I’m dead yet. Annoying. 🙂

Rush: Hounder, when no message is left, i know that it was a sales call.

Mike n Rachel in DC: “Good afternoon! This is Acme Coffin Co. We hear you may be interested in making a purchase this afternoon…”

Rush: yes…plan ahead…

hounder: i just ignore it thinking it’s a phishing or spam or solicitation.

Rush: I like the “narration” from Chan.

Rush: Angel…full speed ahead…

Mike n Rachel in DC: lol

angel & fox: I’m on the G-rated version now. The Gallic guy with the hair pressed forward from the back is holding forth. Sizably holding.

Rush: That one is probably from the ’70s.

angel & fox: Dullness was as dullness did.

Rush: Rain…

Rush: Barry consumes his sandwiches…

angel & fox: Rush, in my Nude version Joan Collins looks younger. So it must be the ’70s version; she was older in the ’50s.

angel & fox: Mother?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Nice to see that all the Chans get exasperated with over-eager sons

Rush: Must be “high tide.”

Rush: Yes, Mike!

angel & fox: I LOVE a KEPI!!

Mike n Rachel in DC: If he’s at sea and not in a boat he’s got some real issues…

Rush: By the way, please say “hello” to Rachel for us!

angel & fox: MnR:     

Mike n Rachel in DC: She’s been chiming in…tag-teaming dinner dishes.

angel & fox: MnR—some real ISSUES, or some REAL powers!!!

Rush: Late dinner, Mike?

angel & fox: He’s a zherman zhendarme.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes…and she made some grilled tuna meals for her lunches this week.

Rush: prepare for the upcoming week.

angel & fox: Let’s oxidize tonight, baby.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Translation: #1 son not complete idiot.

angel & fox: MnR: None of us is COMPLETE.

Rush: Barry hit on a good clue!

Mike n Rachel in DC: I think that is German for “ouch.”

Rush: 🙂

angel & fox: I’m picturing Charles Laughton in the French roll.

angel & fox: Sea lions?

Rush: CC is pretty adept at marshal arts.

Mike n Rachel in DC: I’d go for a little prosciutto and provolone in the French roll…

Rush: maybe to compensate for his advanced age.

angel & fox: He thinks he’ll slide UP the banister.

Rush: That I have to see!

angel & fox: MnR, sorry, a la carte closes at noon.

Rush: I think that Uncle Fester could do that.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Expedited descent…nice

angel & fox: Uncle Fester could do a lotta stuff. That’s why he got that big offer from War Criminals College Prison.

Rush: 🙂

angel & fox: “Expedited Descent”—the OTHER E.D.!!

Mike n Rachel in DC: He can probably light the entire town

angel & fox: What about the “art” on the walls?

Rush: A deft Chan-Chop!

angel & fox: MnR: Could probably HEAT the entire town by exhaling & holding up a match!

Rush: “Come in…”

Rush: The gold!

hounder: hurray!!

Rush: Nice ending!

Mike n Rachel in DC: The old “gold hidden in the wine cask” trick.

angel & fox: That does it. I’m watching ONLY T.P.A. Television Programs of America from now on!!!
