WHIMPERS, MURMURS, AND A LOVE GONE TOO FAR

03-17-98. The upcoming episode FISH SCHTICKS is going to get a new name. Seems that a diamond figures heavily in the story, and one of the sponsors is into diamonds, hence... name change! Stay tuned -- as soon as we know what it is, we'll let you know!1

03-13-98. Ted Raimi at the St. Louis Con (02/15/98) discussed FISH SHTICKS saying that Joxer is looking at a picture of Apis the Apeman [pre-Mycenaean comic book?] when Aphrodite casts her spell [aren't we all glad this is not the season ender...doesn't it read a tad like A COMEDY OF EROS II?] , so he becomes obsessed with running around and acting like a large, pale monkey. He also complained about how little clothing he wound up wearing [are we coming close to seeing three nude dancing Joxers?] for Apis the Apeman.

02-09-98. And it gets worse! WHOOSH just received this intelligence: In this episode, Aphrodite casts a spell on everyone and they become obsessed with whatever they are looking at at the time. Xena becomes obsessed with fishing, Gabrielle is looking in a mirror and becomes obsessed with herself, and Joxer is looking at artwork with Attis the Ape Man on it. Joxer becomes him and thinks that Gabrielle is his ape wife. Apparently it involves Joxer flying on vines and eating bananas. This episode even exceeds the high concept of PORCULES. (Makes you wonder what those people are smoking at those pitch sessions!)

01-30-98. For new anal and obsessive heights in WHOOSHDOM! All I know about this episode is that it has to do with fish (a rather STRONG obsession of show these days, from recreational fishing to embarrassing and very bad taste fish jokes) and that is was filmed in late January 1998. And that information ALONE has gotten this episode it's very own html file. WHOOSH: Bringing you new levels of obsessive behavior.
