I don't know if you remember Night Court. The ninth season was in 1991, but they also did an episode using Phantom as the theme, but I cannot find it on Youtube. It was a knee-slapper as well. Dan was "A Guy Called Phantom". Dan was hiding in the basement of the courthouse and took to wearing a mask. He kidnapped Christine and then there was the chandelier. Laughing It was an ity-bity chandelier that he had to stand up on an step stool in front of everybody and cut the cord holding the chandelier. lol!

I wish I could find a clip of that one. You'd be rolling on the floor with laughter as well.

I do remember night court. I used to love that show. But I don't remember that episode. You have one hell of a memory to remember these things. I don't remember what I did yesterday Smile

I saw it in rerun, that's how I recalled Night Court and Married with Children.

I was gonna say....holy memory! I don't get night court reruns, but I see married with children, but I don't watch it often. It's so funny, that trio combo is just about everywhere you look. It's definately a popular theme. There was something I wanted to compare it to, but I've forgotten Crying or Very sad

It will come to you. I believe that after the popularity of Phantom, more and more films and stories appeared with similar themes.

Take a look at this one. This is from Goosebumps by RL Stine
called The Phantom of the Auditorium.

Ok, lets revisit the lines in the movie. I actually didn't find them that lame. "Genius has turned to madness", may be a little cheesy, but it's true, and I think it's fitting. "Ordeal by fire" is an interesting choice of words. She could have just said "Don't put me through this", but that wouldn't be as fancy Smile

This newest version of Phantom is pretty bad. It amazes me how many different versions there are floating around out there. I mean, the Phantom wearing a varsity jacket and living in a mall? Come on!

The lines may not sound lame to you, but I write and read a lot and these lines are pretty lame to me.

"Ordeal by fire", doesn't give me a clear picture of what she faces if the Phantom wins. "Ordeal by fire" is just as bad as "caos reigned" for hours. See what I mean?

"Genius has turned to madness" is in the same category. In order for the reader or this case, the audience to get a visual, a better choice of words should have been chosen.


Yep, the Phantom of the Mall...poor unhappy Erik is now a fashion victim. Shocked
