THIS WEEK: In this episode, everyone gets kidnapped over and over again. We revisit some old friends in the form of recycled props and indoor sets; live wrestling coverage in the seventies; why are Japanese hiking songs so depressing; NARUTAKI GO HOME WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE; people in academia will stone-cold kill a dude; we witness the Mothman's birth; how have these stunt actors not fallen to their death or drowned; Hayato is scared of planes and isn't ready for the responsibility of fatherhood; and remember: Always trust your fists - police will never help you.
