Up All Night

Couldn't sleep tonight. I'd hate to tell you why.
Fortunately, a local station was showing one of my favorite late-night films: The Mighty Quinn. I first caught this on, yes, late-night TV at my friend Kyle's house during one of those nights when we stayed up all night for no reason other than we were sixteen and didn't really need sleep. It's a reasonably entertaining detective story, Denzel Washington looks exactly the same as he does now, and we can all hearken back to a time when Mimi Rogers was hot.
Wait a second. Mimi Rogers is still hot. But she hadn't been married to Tom Cruise yet. I think.
Also, Toon Disney shows The Tick at 5:00 on Saturday mornings! And it's the "Decency Squad" episode! The pause when the puppet has to explain his "Oedipal moment" joke is priceless.

is that the puppet who says "read a book!"?

Yes, and I fell off the couch, just like I did the first time I saw it. This time, my defense was that it was almost 5:30 in the morning and I hadn't slept at all.
