So thrilled to know that Season 6 is "in the works."
Furthermore the next skill that should go on Went's IMDB is that of Puppet Master aka Puppeteer .
Having Went as a Counselor in any form using magnificent props such as the iconic Martin Stein aka Victor Garber was not as alien an idea as perhaps one might think.
After all.. links back to the kindergarten Dinosaur head and Went's early Jim Henson days surely were part of the "Flash back" premise for both the prosthetic and aesthetic point of view,clearly played out and obviously embellished for that episode.
I also was reminded of.. "Meat Puppet" as quoted by Went in his radio interview with Kyle and Jackie O in 2006 Australia.
(along with Duck World...Remember those ducks..?.. and different ducks? )
Anyway ..Meat Puppet...in a totally different context - possibly.
However seeing Victor as the Dr in puppet form being used by Leo for therapy sessions is both creative and deeply dark.
I saw no strings - just Went's hand expressions used to the max.
Back in Leo's Counselling room, the wave riders respond as well as their bemusement allows them but I especially like the response by Dom in role as Mick Rory.
No mistaking his emphatic and emotional response.
Reversing the "role play" and using a puppet for un-peeling a Leo not just a Leonard is something that would be interesting, not necessarily effective...
it could be ..
..depends on the puppet used.
