'Our Friend Sparlock' DVD is about to get the AX

    Sparlock is forever immortalized on the DVD, so he can't be axed any more than he has been already via the blue dumpster. I doubt he'll be making a return in any of the forthcoming Caleb sequels anyway.

    Indeed. The 'Sparlock' character was almost certainly only ever intended as a once-off plot device in a particular episode of the 'Caleb must Obey' series. Though the character is significant in certain contexts (e.g. forums such as this), the character is not particularly notable within the scope of the series narrative, so there would be very little reason for them to continue using the character in future 'lessons' even if there had been no negative reaction to it. In any case, the JW leadership thrives on negative publicity because it feeds the JW persecution complex.

    I know of non JWs that think the sparlock vid is weird and cultish!

    I would bet that 99% of non-JWs who saw this think it is weird.

    JWs themselves, of course, are too mindlocked to see anything wrong with it - this is what has killed all their media releases over the past 50 years.

    They simply do not have a self-regulating embarrassing bullshit meter to protect them against this kind of stuff.

    The internet is causing this publishing company serious finacial problem no need for DVD's just download, magazines, and what ever no more printing presses.

    So lets them put up thier antimasturbation videos and anti childhood toy crap for all to see while they don't make a dime from it in sales.

    Just as a side thought - does the Watchtower have the physical plant to stamp out DVDs?

    If not - then they would have to pay somebody to do it for them.

    And these Sparlock gems are not going to sell for $19.95 like a movie...

    Oh good! Now they can have their Caleb videos as easily accessible as their "How to Masturbate" instructional video.

    So this video is only available next year on the devils eye-ball, aka the internet?

    David and Sparlock are still a cheap copy and paste of Mike The Knight tm.

    well since dubs aren't supposed to watch such things, a simple cut and paste plagerism is easy to get away with
