Just How Many 11-Year-Olds Would Cite a 22-Year-Old Movie?
Five or six years ago I attended a Halloween party dressed as good ol' Scott Howard, complete with wolfman costume and makeshift "Beavers" basketball jersey. Being that I'm on the average ten to 15 years older than the people I usually associate with (read into that, armchair psychologists), I fully expected a lot of head-scratching, uncomprehending stares and long-winded explanations on my part about the heyday of late-80's HBO afternoon programming. But much to my surprise and relief everyone got the costume immediately, some even inquiring as to the whereabouts of my enterprising friend Styles.
Hmm, perhaps given the cult status of Arrested Development and the resurgence of its main star this year I'll go as Teen Wolf Too. After all, who could possibly forget that absolutely hilarious scene when he, uh...umm...turns into a werewolf?
