Why is Loin Like a Hunting Flame so unpopular?


Recommended Posts

Probably the subject matter...drugs, sexual fantasies, and dysfunction.  Even though there are other episodes where sex is an issue, this one took it to a step farther than most people are aware of or have even been exposed to.  Incest and sexual abuse is common knowledge like in, "The Well-Worn Lock," but kidnapping, etc., in this episode, takes it to a whole new level.  The title are excellent choices for both episodes.  Same with "Monster."  It's common knowledge nowadays that abuse happens in day cares.

Then there's the absolute mind-blowing scene in the motel with Frank and the evil Lucy... :Gehenna: :old-fashioned-exercise:

Frank Black: I have seen the future where the battle between good and evil that has raged for millennia is fought to conclusion and the struggle for our hearts and minds is decided for all time.

We survive...maybe. But only by discarding the question that confuses us--"What do I want" and asking what the world...what the universe wants and needs...asking "What does life itself expect of me?".

Jordan Black: Which side wins, Daddy?

Frank: That's what I'm saying...it's up to us.

Jordan: We're all shepherds.

Frank: Yes honey. Yes we are.

Personally, I liked this episode. But I see it's rather unpopular. Why is that?

I like it too but the subject matter is uncomfortable for some people I guess.

I know it  seems extreme.  But  The title is just...  You know how some folks hate the word  "moist" ?  It's like that.   But it's not the word "loin".    It's the whole title.  I don't know why, but... I'm sitting here unconsciously grimacing as I type...  Anyway,  I like  some of the conversations  had during the episode.   Think the hubby wife dynamic is  pretty hokey..  and the title, well, it's just too moist.

Have to admit, the title is catchy, and probably why they used it.  Simply "Hunting Flame" would have been enough for me, and not use the word "loin."
