Dear EQUALIZER... we need you now, more than ever.....
THE EQUALIZER & MISC RANTS.....
"please leave a message after the beep"
"Dear EQUALIZER... it appears that the urban legend about HITLER and Eva Braun escaping to upper New York state and having a son, are true!... He's going by the name of TRUMP. He needs to be stopped by any means necessary!... Please, help us. The world's future is at stake!"
If only things were that simple.....
Anyway, one of my favorite tv shows of all time, only lasted four seasons. It was called THE EQUALIZER. It was about an ex-government agent that helped people defend themselves against evil individuals.
Countless famous actresses and actors appeared on this show ( before they became household names ).
THE EQUALIZER was a breath of fresh air compared to almost everything else airing on the "free" channels at that time. It was unapologetically 'dark', and that was one of the reasons I loved it.
Most exteriors seemed to be filmed on location in New York. That was another BIG plus.
I don't know if any episodes were ever released on legit VHS.
As for region one DVD, for a long time you could only find grey-market discs. Fortunately, a company called VISUAL ENTERTAINMENT INC released seasons one through four in the United States.
Unfortunately, they only seem to be available via online retailers. I've NEVER seen any of the season sets at WALMART or any other chain store. And even If I had seen them, they'd probably cost more than I could afford.
As I write this, the series has not been released on BLU-RAY.
You can find some episodes and clips ONLINE.
If you live in the United States, the show airs on GET TV ( Monday through Friday - as of August 2016 ).
As for the movie, I've never seen it, and really have no desire to.
There's also a novel called THE EQUALIZER ( ISBN - 9781250041968 ). It was written by Michael Sloan. He was also the co-creater of the tv series ( that's a GOOD thing ).

STILL MAKING EXCUSES AND STILL IN DENIAL.....
"'Ghostbusters' Heading for $70M-Plus Loss, Sequel Unlikely"
"experts say it will have trouble getting to $225 million despite a hefty net production budget of $144 million plus a big marketing spend. The studio has said break-even would be $300 million"
Far too many man-haters and self loathing males, are still claiming GHOSTBUSTERS 2016 was a hit. They're obviously suffering from some sort of head trauma.

NAZI TRUMP AND FRAT-BOY LOCHTE ANNOUNCE THEIR ENGAGEMENT.....
Two ex-reality 'stars' living in their own fantasy worlds.
LIES, LIES, LIES, and more LIES. If HITLER had apologized, would people have believed he was sincere?... More importantly, why would any SANE person accept his apology?! That's how I feel about NAZI TRUMP and his so-called 'apology'.
There are countless retards, that actually believe he has changed!... Un-fucking believable!
It ain't rocket science, he'll say anything to get into the white house, and then he'll revert to his normal state and become the NEW HITLER.
As for those FUCKING-FRAT-BOY-DOUCHEBAGS led by Ryan Lochte, let me say the obvious, they embarrassed our nation, and insulted Brazil.
AND YET, ass-kissers, right-wingers, and even some companies - NISSAN, GATORADE, and two others - are defending him!
Lochte needs his teeth kicked-in and a severe beating. The companies that defend him will NEVER again get any of my money!
His 'apology' was NOT a true apology. It was just more BULLSHIT.
Can you imagine crossing the street and being hit by a car driven by this ASSHOLE-EXTRAORDINAIRE?... He'd probably get out of his car and say, "Hey!... I'm sorry YOU broke my headlight, when I ran a red light and ran you over. It's YOUR FAULT, because YOU traumatized me!"
ABOMINATIONS like NAZI TRUMP and ENTITLED FRAT-BOYS like Lochte, think they can get away with anything they want. The saddest part is, they probably WILL get away with whatever they want.

THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT!.....
Here we go again... This past year, has seen the apparent rebirth of the MORAL MAJORITY ( by Utah politicos ). Plus, there seems to be an outbreak of Andrea Dworkin and Gloria Steinem clones!
The anti-porn zealots have NO shame. Why?... Because, this time they're 'using' a real victim.
Once upon a time, it was Linda Lovelace, that was 'used' and thrown away, by the anti-porn crowd. Now, it's Elizabeth Smart that's being 'used' by anti-porn fanatics.
Would it have been better if Ms. Smart's abductors had been into hardcore HORROR, or NAZISPOLTATION films?
What she went through was horrible, but it could have been far, far, worse - think john wayne gacy, and numerous others.
I think most SANE people can agree that the folks that abducted Ms. Smart were INSANE long BEFORE they ever watched porn, or doctor shows, or cop shows, or soaps, or anything else!
STOP giving bad people EXCUSES for their bad behavior!
Disturbed individuals that are influence by anything they read, see, and hear shouldn't be allowed to interact with the rest of society!
And STOP blaming inanimate objects for the horrible acts committed by individuals that exercised THEIR FREE WILL!
Most of this ANTI-PORN INSANITY is coming from Utah. A part of the world, that LOOKED THE OTHER WAY, and has ALWAYS LOOKED THE OTHER WAY, in regards to POLYGAMIST MOTHERS giving their daughters to their 'husband' for sexual gratification. And then they have the AUDACITY to justify their DEPRAVITY by HIDING BEHIND THE BIBLE. Are you going to blame the BIBLE for THEIR BEHAVIOR?!.....
