Episodes / Re: Traffic light in 1071-1075

Hey, all. I just wanted to chime in on the traffic light mystery and give you my two cents as a collector of traffic signals.

That strip of photos that were posted appear to be the same traffic signal. To me, it looks to be a Marbelite TE-19408. These were very common, being manufactured from about the late 1950s through the mid 1970s. It's not uncommon to find some still in service today around New York and New Jersey.

It's likely the same light the entire time through all episodes. The visors were likely changed out or cut down as they are easily removable with four screws holding each one on. Those visors are known as tunnel visors. I doubt the signal was swapped out. The hinges and doors seem to be the same in all of the photos.

I hope this helps. BTW, here's mine in green with cutaway visors.

Can anyone confirm if all 15 operas (only counting 'Josephine' as one, since it's really one opera in three parts) were shown during the Twitch stream?

No, he's saying that some of the post-79 episodes that were previously available for Amazon Prime members to watch for free are no longer free. The MRN videos on Prime are divided into Volumes 1-7 (mixed episodes from different seasons, not always in order and not always full week stretches) and Seasons 1979-2001 (some full seasons, others are missing some episodes). The Volumes are still free for Prime members, but the Seasons are no longer free and must be purchased.

Actually, I remembered the other tread that said 1047, 1355, 1403, and 1407 were skipped.  I wonder why.  Tim, can you ask FCI why they were skipped?

1047 reminds me of my 8th grade science teacher, the way King Friday numbered the buildings.  He was the department chair, and every department chair had to assign each teacher in his/her department a number.  He, of course, assigned himself 1, but assigned all of the other teachers numbers in alphabetical order.  He also spread a rumor that I had a medical problem, which I did not have.  He had previously told me that if I ever talked back to him, he would kick me our of honors science.  Given that he was the department chair, I would have had no recourse if he kicked me out of honors science.  So I had no choice but to allow the entire school to believe that I had a medical problem which I did not have.  A perfect example of how the true bullies in school are the adults, not the children.

I'm not sure if this is the case here or not, but there are many connections between the Neighborhood and the mall in Monroeville, PA.

What connections does it have?

Are you saying that every pre-79 is now available online?

Looks like only the seasons labeled "Season 1, 2, ... 7" are the only ones available with an Amazon Prime membership now.  The other seasons labeled by year (1982, 1983 etc) are still available, but they must be purchased separately from the Prime membership in order to view them.

I wonder what's up.

My recollection for 1587 was they said "Russia."
