Yeah, I know this week’s post came a little bit late, but I have something very special to make up for my tardiness. It’s no secret that I’m pretty hot in my pantaloons for Gary, the leader of the Midnight Society. Yes, I call him a lame-ass and stuff, but it’s all out of love, baby.
And possibly some resentment that I never got the opportunity to join the Midnight Society.
Anyway, there are seven seasons total of Are You Afraid of The Dark?–I believe that the first 6 involved Gar-Bear and the original Midnight Society (in various incarnations), while the 7th season had Tucker running the show, hanging out with Vanessa Lengies, Elisha Cuthbert, and two other kids that didn’t grow up to be hot girls. I haven’t spent a lot of time with the newer episodes because I like kicking it old school, but I had a wonderful surprise today when browsing through my season 7 DVDs…
Man alive, give me a sec to pick my panties up from where they just dropped, will you?
Dammit, Gary, I said give me a second! Yeesh.
Ahem. Anyway, late in the 7th season, it looks like the producers actually did a multi-episode arch with the new members of the Midnight Society trying to solve a scary and super-serious mystery involving Gary’s dead grandpa. Here’s a fun fact: the lady who plays Gary’s grandma is the same woman who played Mrs. Simpson, the mystic from The Tale of the Room for Rent. I totally kept expecting Ghost Dude to pop up somewhere.
Oh, and here’s one with Gary lacking his trademark spectacles, in case anybody is interested…
I assume he’s just waking up from a really bad dream or something. Maybe it’s the one in which I get a life and stop doing these adoring recaps… Yeah, that must be it. Don’t worry, Gar, I don’t think that’ll happen any time soon.
