You spoke about Alfred Hitchcock's fear of the police in the trivia, and Nychtophobia is a game about the fear of darkness. Hitchcock made a lot of movies about fear.

As in the definition of nyctophobia is "an irrational fear of darkness". And in the Nychtophobia game some players play blind-folded and play the game based on touch and feel.

Rob said, “nothing bad ever happens in a shower!” However, one of the most famous Hitchcock scenes is the shower stabbing scene in Psycho.

Robb kept emphasizing his love of "The Reveal" in games. Few have ever mastered "The Reveal" better than Alfred Hitchcock.

In real life Alfred Hitchcock was kind of an a-hole. Its a widely acknowledged scientific fact that Alpacas are the a-holes of the animal kingdom.

This week's trivia has multiple links in my mind, all to do with Hitchcock's loves and fears.

Firstly Altiplano meaning "High Plain" and that's clearly reminding Rob of the plane in "North By Northwest!"

Next there's Viticulture, Hitchcock was an infamous lover of wine. You can look at "Notorious" for a great analogy and revelation there.

Then you have Twilight Zone (or Twilight Imperium??) being like a new edition of "Hitchcock Presents."

And finally there's Rob's Shower revelations, thinking away until finally you hear the REEK REEK REEK REEK and there's all the syrup going down the drain. And Christina standing there wearing Rob's clothes...


Yeah, i'm stretching

I was thinking that in Altiplano the goods are tiered or higher up and that is a reference to Vertigo. Or in Vertigo the use of the colors red and green and how that forshadows what is about to happen onscreen, somehow that links something to something else which I must say is brilliant.

Hitchcock was a master of the "Reveal" Including Norman Bates mom.

Alternatively, Alfred Hitchcock is an anagram for Hike 2C Flat Chord, which is a reference to traveling the flat plains of Altiplano while pulling a Depry Alpaca in tow.

Hitchcock was the master of suspense, and is there anything more suspenseful than a big reveal? Especially when it happens in a shower a la Psycho (and where Rob had his epiphany)? Plus, Hitchcock learned about fear at an early age, and since Altiplano is a bag builder, it surely summoned DREAD that the box might contain velvet bags, thus triggering Rob and Christina’s deepest fears. But thankfully it sounds like all fears subsided once the box was opened WITH A BIG REVEAL.

Allegedly Alfred Hitchcock was a fan of Altiplano and would have allegedly rated it a 6!

Also allegedly Robb has a fear of llamas surprising him in the shower.

Alfred Hitchcock, besides being known for his films and TV series, was also the world's first Alpacaphobe. Allegedly, according to his journal, his fear arose due the fact that a murderous gang of alpacas killed his parents at a rogue petting zoo. When he told the tale to the authorities though, no one believed him. His phobia is also, allegedly, why you never see any alpacas in any of his movies.

I know it sounds crazy, but I choose to believe.

Y'all are close, but I have the answer for sure. It's pretty obvious really, just a couple steps:

Warning: this is kinda gross

1. Alfred Hitchcock's most famous movie was PSYCHO, in which a crazy young man murders people and
Spoiler (click to reveal)
keeps his mother's corpse on hand and dresses up as her.

2. Hitchcock's film adapts the novel of the same name by Robert Bloch.
3. Bloch was living in Wisconsin in 1959 when he was writing the novel.
4. As he was finishing, news came out that authorities had arrested notorious murderer Ed Gein,
5. Gein used body parts of his victims to make all sorts of things from human skin, one of which was a wastebasket, a kind of bag.
6. Altiplano is also a bag builder.

The cover of Antiplano has a 'durpy' looking alpaca on it



This image reminds me of the Emperor Kuzco in Disney's Emperor's New Clothes



One of Disney's best IMO, this film features a character called Rudy



Rudy was voiced by the late John Fiedler



In the 1960's, John Fiedler worked on several programmes with Alfred Hitchcock:

Alfred Hitchcock Presents - Incident in a Small Jail (21/Mar/1961)
Alfred Hitchcock Presents - The Last Remains (27/Mar/1962)
The Alfred Hitchcock Hour - I Saw the Whole Thing (11/Oct/1962)

You Brits just like putting extra "u"s in stuff. Colour, flavour, behaviour, harbour, etc.

There's a funny bit in one of the books by Jaasper Fforde that suggests this is because there was a shortage of "u" at one point, so the relevant authorities declared that America would have to do with a smaller supply.

that is EXACTLY why I said that during the episode as the tie in. good job.

Patrick picked the "creative" link...
