    If I hadn't made a typo, sure, but it is what it is, no turning back now.

    You could say it’s a prologue to whatever the podcasters do next, I suppose.

    So I'm not going to be wading through the podcast but I'm still wondering, whats the great mystery with Lords? I looked up the Wikipedia entry. 16 year old girl heads to the Valley with a fistful of fake ID and makes some illegal porn as a 16 year old. Her porn is banned and removed from shelves. Seems a simple tale. What am I missing?

    As soon as something gets banned, people want to see it I guess and the legend grows. I remember an interview with a porn screenwriter who wanted to go legit, and when he was able to get interviews with mainstream producers he soon found out that the only reason they saw him was to ask him to score them Traci videos.

    There really isn't any mystery but according to West and Anolik it's 1) Did Lords expose herself to force her early tapes to be withdrawn and she would make a ton of money on her only legal tape 2) Did the FBI out her as part of the Meese commission 3) Did someone else that knew her (the mother perhaps) out her for some reason.

    Except for the couple of episodes about her early years, there was nothing in the series that was new, at least to me.

    I've never read her book since it appeared to be self-centered and not completely honest. I have seen almost all her legit movies and feel that she is not a very good actress. She really plays everything the same, never changing her emotions. Actually after watching SHARKANSAS WOMEN'S PRISON MASSACRE I felt she was actually regressing as an actress if possible.

    Still, after listening to these episodes, I'm feeling more sympathetic to her. Did she rat herself out? Maybe (and I don't think for one second that West had an open mind on this). But as Tom Byron and Herschel Savage said, more power to her if she did. As they both noted, the industry exploited her and made a lot of money off her. So if she got some revenge on them, well they're upset because they got exploited and not her.

    As I mentioned before, one of my main problems with this series is how West altered the past to fit the points he wanted. Also, a number of the people he interviewed are suspect. I would never trust anything that Tim Connelly or Amber Lynn would say. Ginger Lynn (who I actually like) has memory issues. And the late Jim South was not the standup guy that he was portrayed. South may have been anti-drugs but he had people working for him that were using/dealing. He tricked Christy Canyon into doing hardcore (and how many others did he also trick). He ran a bordello with Gregory Dark. His agent fees were excessive (it's telling that he had no idea how much Lords made even though he was her agent). And, despite what the Riatto Report says, he produced hundreds of movies using the name "Jimmy Houston" (not to be confused with the NC director) and wanted his talent to take less money for doing them since he was the producer.

    One minor point, they made an issue about Lords saying that she only made about 20 films. Actually, she is correct, she made very few movies that were shot on film, most were shot on video. A minor point but it does allow Lords to be truthful in a way.

    I thought she was good in EXCISION.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?
