Syd was found incoherent on day 13 of his acid trip. He may have kept his sanity a little longer if he hadn't taken literally a 2-week trip

wow, no mention of Ayahuasca in the last cast, which is "legal" in Brazil and is known to get people off heavy drug addiction.

There's a bit of unintentional stigma in this episode against antidepressants. Otherwise, as entertaining as ever.

OMG no one says 'apples' for stairs hahahaha. But people say 'barnet' for hair because the rhyme is 'Barnet fair'. Or 'let's have a butchers', meaning butcher's hook - look.

I wish they hadn't lumped the West Memphis 3 into the episode and insinuating they are actually innocent. yes, it was a product of that time (satanic panic) with part of the case/trial but there is a LOT of compelling evidence that they are in fact guilty if you read all the case files.
