Round the Twist is notable for having pushed the boundaries of what is acceptable for children's television, to the extent that the Australian Children's Television Foundation had difficulty finding a distributor for it: according to the ACTF's marketing Manager Jenny Buckland, "the scripts were declared 'too rude', 'not for television' and 'outrageous'".
you can say that again
the website is still up
what on earth is a "version 4+ browser"
@lynnesbian it was traumatic
@lynnesbian Like, you can use Firefox v60 for example, because 60>=4, but you can't, like, use Brave and stuff because they never release a version greater than 4.
@lynnesbian excuse me, one does not simply STOP going 'round the TWIST, it is a long process spanning multiple seasons and actor changes
@lynnesbian oh that takes me back.
This is back when everyone treated browser's major versions the same way we now talk about game console generations.
So this'll be anything with the capabilities of Netscape 4 and greater. This was a big deal because many people sticked with Netscape 3 and other "3.x" browsers and didn't update.
@lynnesbian the best things in life are indeed free
@email@example.com season 3 episode one just has everything
@lynnesbian why "Dog by Night" but no "Cat by Day"? 😾
@lynnesbian fucking wild lol all I had as a kid was lots of quality British and American stuff. And you lot had that hahaha tbf Ive never seen it and hardly revisited old childhood stuff cause I mostly forgot my childhood! I wonder why!
@lynnesbian the first time I saw it I'd just watched Evil Dead, and turned the VCR off. It was something hellish like 3 in the morning and a strange show was playing that caught my eye. Ten minutes later...
I. Was. Terrified.
@lynnesbian a lot of productions back then were dark. Ellie and Jools had a dead girl down a well. Mirror Mirror had toxic was sprayed on kids. The Miraculous Mellops straight up had a corny bunch of aliens that fuckin ate people.
@lynnesbian Literal pissing competitions in Round The Twist.
@lynnesbian ok wasn't entirely prepared for that rush of memory
