The Raven (1963) Not much Poe, but Price, Karloff, and Lorre make it so ridiculously fun only the most hard-hearted purist could complain. TIL: The Bible twice uses Ravens as examples of God's loving protection. Kind of makes its "Nevermore" in the poem even more depressing.

Tinseltown Testaments: National Lampoon's Animal House (1978) “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.”

Dad Rock Diary: Devo - Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! (1978) Sure, people laughed, but what nobody realized is this was the moment when disgruntled nerds began to take over the world. Laudable Lyrics: Well, it's a god-given fact that you can't go back. No, you can't go back.

And finally, I gave The New Pope three episodes. Unfortunately, while The Young Pope had some interesting ideas, the follow up.... doesn't. Rather than waste time writing about it, I'll let Clemente Lisi at GetReligion bear that burden.
