Yes I saw that episode too, and thought it was quite an odd line. But it didn't shock me so much as the references to punk bands and the posters that lined Seth's bedroom walls in the first season (like The Jam, and a mention of The Cramps). I Figure there were some hipsters behind the scenes (set d...

1970 googie?

Qualify as googie? I think it'd have to be labeled as such with that wild roof, but yeah it's got that real on-the-brink-of-the-70's look going on at the same time. Interesting.

Wish I could join ya in KC for this!
Maybe I need to get another bowling event together here in SoCal.

Yes thanks for the posts Adriene, I had no idea this was all going on! This whole eminent domain issue is terrible. That's just not how America should work. It's unfortunate that Rod's is one of only two good mid-century diners left in that area.

That's a good idea.
Though, FM radios aren't even installed in most old cars. What's my poor '63 to do?
I notice that on the drive-in site, http://www.drive-ins.com/theater/catmiss, it says both FM and AM, but the page for the mission itself only lists FM alongside the movies it's showing.
