    Yeah, that was very much the vibe. I guess I'm just the crotchety old man who likes his movies big/fast and his TV shows slower. That's what the long form format gives you, intimacy (heh heh, gross), that you don't get from blockbuster movies usually.

    Other than Patriot, which is the best show in the past X years, Endeavour is my favorite TV show. And Shetland.

    I watched two episodes of Patriot and stopped. It seemed good enough that if I watched it without my wife I might be in trouble.

    I don't recall seeing it mentioned here, but PEN15 on HULU is also an excellent show. One of the two main characters is drummer extraordinaire Peter Erskine's daughter and that comes into play a lot in the show.

    I'm probably on the younger end here and I still feel super out of touch when talk turns to movies.

    Have you watched Red Oaks on Prime? Definite '80s nostalgia show. It even stars Paul Reiser.

    I hope that’s not a euphemism.

    Or TV.

    My TV sits dusty and forlorn over there.

    I console myself by picking up books at the library and playing my guitar.

    Ok, so what pedals am I looking at for stereo in and stereo out?

    Walrus v1, EHX stereo pulsar, Fulltone, etc. ?

    Swindler makes a nice, compact stereo trem. Or if you can find a Young Pedals Looker Tremolo, that also has stereo ins and outs. I have both, and they sound great. They both also have a panning option, which can be really fun. DLS also makes a stereo in/out trem.

    I had their Chorus~Vib for about a year (2004/5 - before I got my SCH-1) - they make some really decently-appointed, well-built stuff. It was a little dry for my taste (especially compared to the Arion), but if it had sounded as lush as the SCH-1 it would still be on my board.

    How about that Tubescreamer? Can it nail that SRV thing?

    It was a Keeley mod - I moved it pretty quick for a MI Audio Blue Boy that I wish I'd kept.

    From my 'Blue Period' lol:

    Yeah, they make high quality stuff. I’ve had a few of their pedals, including both chorus pedals. They sound great, but I can see what you’re saying about the Chorus-Vib. The newer sounded a little more lush to me. I just wish their enclosures weren’t so large.
