As we all know, the most scientifically valid lines of research are conducted by middle aged men in enormous trailer trucks repurposed as museums. Stop on by to marvel as Professor Nigel Zircon unravels the mysteries of the world in Marshalls Theory of Believability.

I love Edgar and how he's all "I AM SO MANY LEVELS OF NOT OKAY WITH ANYTHING RIGHT NOW!"

The Mayor is a creep.

Eerie has a statue of Corn that I only just noticed today.

SIMON when Edgar tells Mars that he and Marilyn will always love him and Simon blows his nose?! I WAS LIKE OMFG THE FEELS. Same with when they're eating dinner at Marshall's house.

I love Edgar being all "SCIENCE IS THIS THIS AND THIS" and Zyrcon is like *bored now*

I love at the end when Zyrcon is like "UFOs aren't real!" and then it flies away. Perfection.

I love that prof z has picked like a dead exotic alias to convince the world hes super exciting n mysterious... and his "exotic" fake first name is nigel.

and I love that marilyn calls mac n cheese "space noodles n moon sauce". weve totally adopted that in our house too. and oh GOD it breaks my heart that simon is so excited about a "lovely dinner" of kraft mac n cheese.

so... santa is real, and mars has known about weird stuff like santa since his pre-eerie days? so its totally not eerie specific at all, marshall ALREADY KNEW about the supernatural before he came to eerie!!

edgar is so funny in this ep - Iove how pissed off he was about the two headed pig. I have never seen a man that angry about livestock. and the dead grumpy interview on werd tv!

I was watching one day and I messaged a friend about how I like to think of Eerie theories.

his response was that Mars is in a coma and this is all in his head.

and I was like O.o

ALSO I totally keep thinking of this and want to write a Mars is actually crazy and locked up in the hospital because he's a danger to himself and others fic.

oh, also

I love how smart Syndi is.

she SEEMS like she'll just be your typical one dimensional blond background character, but then she's like "So, how did you locate the space thing and how are you tracking it?" except more scientific than I can do.

I like how the show is obv narrated from marshalls pov and mars is the one telling the audience what a div syndi is, but what we actually see of her completely contradicts that

also, can we talk about the fact that Mayor Chisel is all "we don't want anything weird here" and he LITERALLY LOOKS AT ELVIS as he says it.

I wanna know who the yoshizowa consortium are n what their interest is in eerie.

also, what was fred suggs gonna do with a hoover?

also, "people from these parts like to breathe through their mouths". wait what?

also, I love how few shits elvis gives about the coverup ("when's lunch?" indeed)

This was one of the weirder Fred Suggs episodes, definitely.

Chisel's "See you in the next life" line always makes me think of Warren Zevon's "Mr. Bad Example," which totally fits.

The Yoshizowa Consortium...I wonder if we ever would have heard from them again.

I wo.der if they knew what they were doing with the john asti. radford and so ramping up suggs's weirdness was to play into that. because he starts off dead nutty with thw disguisss n accents, then hes just a regular store owner guy, but then he gets even weirder right before hole in the head gang.

gonna listen t that warren zevon song now, since the only one of his I remember is werewolves of london, which I love.

stuff like the consortium is exactly why I wish wed had more of eerie - I cant help thinking if there was a plan for them down the line

I love when the prof is presenting his "evidence" and hes like, this is.neither american nor russian, so the ONLY POSSIBILTY IS THAT IT IS AN ALIEN SPACECRAFT. I am gonna Insist that so many things are aliens based on the fac that theyre not two other things.

this grass.is neither a dog or the sun, so CLEARLY IT IS ALIENS.

this yoghurt is neither a hat not a pigeon SO IT IS ALIENS OBV.
