@mossygreen I just read there was an episode with a character who was into auto-asphyxiation. Some viewer tried it and died, their relatives sued, and the episode was lost forever. I wonder if that’s true.
@sammydog01 I’ve heard that too, never looked for it. On snopes they said it occasionally turns up on youtube, which is possible, since the original Soft Cell video for “Sex Dwarf” shows up and then is removed periodically. It’s too bad, because the snopes article also said it had boring, stereotypical portrayals of hippies, and that happens to be just about my favorite Hawaii Five-0 thing.
Just checked, youtube doesn’t have it, but does have the original Soft Cell video for “Sex Dwarf” again. Absolutely terrible quality, but watched it. Transsexual s/m meat orgy with chainsaw and maggots. A bold choice for 1981, made by young men who didn’t really want to be pop stars.
@pmarin@sammydog01 Ah, but what if I told you they were transsexual prostitutes and that they left screaming once they realized maggots were being thrown at them? Now that I’m old, I do think it was bad to nonconsetually throw maggots on people.
