The couple of times I have suffered through this abomination it was clear that it was all or largely pre-recorded and not live. This is frankly not uncommon and and reasonable given the climbing and whatnot.I was at a table for the first show and I noticed him with a guitar but it definitely didn't sound like he was playing it, maybe I missed something. Also RIP leather pants
they aren't scare actors. they are actors in other shows.I saw the 2:30 show of Saturday and almost the entire cast of Britmania was in attendance in the front row. It was really cool seeing their enthusiasm and support for Fiends. They were all in face paint. Guess they are scare actors now.
You ever see Bill and Ted at HHN? Or the Hanging at Knott's Scary Farm? Or watch almost any modern horror film?I just really don't get where slutty Halloween fits in an amusement park...
This is a good point that I really haven't thought much of.Honestly, I see more skin walking down the street in the summertime than I ever have at HOS
No, one could make the argument that considering what the show is on a cohesive level, taking everything into account I said in my previous 2 post. You chose to percieve the show that way... And quite frankly that's your problem alone. I think the women tend to be attractive. That doesn't mean I'm watching the show for a quick flash of ass covered in tights and spanks which is standard dance attire, used by women and girls of all ages in athletics, cheerleading, etc. The show is sexual, yes... But it's clearly camp. It's not taking itself seriously. I watch it and love it for it's campy dark comedy and adult humor, and many others do for the same reasons. The nurses add to the show, without them it's be kind of weird. If you have sexual humor, you have to have roles and people filling that can be considered attractive, and you got to show the sexy. The dialogue and the dancing does it without going too overboard.One could make the argument that any sort of musical talent is overshadowed by the flaunting of about half a dozen less than stellar looking women. Any dancing ability is forgone to display the occasional flash of ass as the skirts twirl in just the right way.
I watch the show for a good spooky campy time. If I want to see tits, between the internet, my significant other, or a strip club I have options... Also nowadays if you're feeling some kind of way tinder is pretty easy and bars still work. Even for the teenagers viewing the show I'm sure they're like w/e. Again, I see more skin on the streets on the regular. No one is naked in the show... There is zero nudity, not even implied nudity, and the most naked member has traditionally been the experiment(a dude), a fun shout-out to the Rocky horror picture show... Which is in the same vein of comedy and "trashiness" as fiends.I feel I should be clear here. I am not any sort of Puritan. I don’t think it is a crime to come off as actractive, or even sexual. However, as fiends has continued to love on it has served to do nothing for the talent it employs but flash skin and make jokes of it. It’s target audience seems to be those that want to see tits, not those that want a good show.
Oh wow, a "family park" has a show that has adult themes that is not acceptable for some people's children, during an event that is generally not acceptable for children. Seriously, Fiends is the one show the park has ever really produced with some edge to it. It's okay. That fact a family park also has entertainment that panders to a more mature audience is fine. It doesn't make it any less of a family park and has nothing to do with your argument of the show being trashy... Let's keep it on you think the show is trashy, and why don't you instead of pandering your argument argue that the show is indeed trashy. I've already gone to great lengths to post about what the show is, where it comes from and the place it has in the park as a Halloween feature. You've done nothing of the sort, just resorting to offhand strawman remarks about how people want to just see tits, and there is zero substance to the show. I've demonstrated that there isand it fits within the confines of the event.Finally, as a show that is not only in a primarily family park, it’s presence has been an issue on more than one occasion. Though the park seems to be better at keeping the actors inside the show or at least confined to the later, more adult hours of operation, it does not serve to bolster any aspect of the event.
Clearly, you are missing the point. It's making light of the taboo. It's relishing in the fact it's doing what it's doing, and giving zero care to the world that it is what it is. It is making light of dark, unrealistic situations, while a chorus line shimmies and dances scantily clad, making fun of the fact they are being taboo. The sexuality isn't implied or nuanced, it's shoved down your throat, because they can, and the show is laughing with you at itself.You might enjoy it, and there is nothing wrong with that. You might think that it’s a shame that such a thing is frowned upon in today’s culture, nothing wrong with that. But to think that the show is received in any other way but what amounts to a pg13 striptease with a couple dudes thrown in, would be remiss.
