“Whoever’s acquired the game, simply make certain the game doesn’t get *you*- The Gary circa 1992

Tonight we have actually The Gary telling us a story, it’s around a computer virus. To bad The Gary didn’t have actually an anti-virus ~ above his computer, it would have actually saved him a big headache. Additionally The Gary and Tucker need to come indigenous a fine off family members to both have their own computer in 1994, since computer prices earlier than ranged indigenous $1,100 come 1,500. So popular music the popcorn and open a TAB together we clock our story of terror brought to us from The Gary.

You are watching: Are you afraid of the dark renegade virus

The night beginning like any type of other meeting night, with Sam when again getting the logs for the fire. She go in and notices the The Gary is lacking and states “Uh, why is Gary late?”

*
“Sure men don’t help me I entirely got it”- Sam’s inside thoughts

Tucker tells the corridor “he had actually to rewrite a book report.” Kiki is confused, ns guess she has actually never had actually to write a book report and says “Rewrite?” Tucker describes “His computer system has a virus. Every time he tries to print something, it it s okay erased.” Kiki has the biggest grin on she face. Likewise I think Kiki is wearing one of Frank’s hand me down cutoff vest tops.

*
I think Kiki has actually been working out, look at she biceps and more importantly why is she looking at Tucker’s junk? Is over there a romantic going ~ above here?

Betty Ann states “Ooh, Scary.” fine she is sold on a story about viruses.

*
Betty Ann “Hey guys, I chose I to be going to end up being a expert break dancer.”

Frank whose family members does not own a computer says “The just thing scary around computers room the people who use them.” I kind of think Frank could be a tad little bit jealous the The Gary and also Tucker. Sam sits alongside Frank. The Gary walks in finally and also says “Yeah, call me around it. Sorry I’m late. A computer system virus ate up my book report twice, so on the way here I had to loaned a virus doctor. (Hmm I use McAfee the is noted for me for free from the University). When I get home, I’m gonna destroy the rotten small virus, and also find out that planted it in my computer. The Gary says this when looking in ~ Tucker and Kiki is likewise looking at Tucker sort of sideways as if to say look out dude. Betty Ann sell some indigenous of wisdom “Careful. A virus have the right to do a many damage.”

*
Betty Ann made decision that at this moment, she would show her moves, yet alas The Gary was all set for his tale.

The Gary says “I know. A virus is a disease. It it s okay inside and also takes hold, and once the starts spreading, it’s impossible to shake.” Tucker speak up and says “It’s simply a computer virus.” The Gary claims “Sure it is, and also it’s just a computer. However viruses deserve to jump around, and also there’s one computer system you never want one to gain into.” Sam asks that “What computer system is that?” The Gary states ” The person brain.” the goes on to mention around how a many of details is save on computer in the brain before submitting his story come the Midnight culture as The tale of the Renegade Virus.

We space taken come a institution at night, wherein a child is imputing something right into a computer, we can assume native the skull and also crossbones the it is a virus.

Next we taken to a bedroom, wherein Simon is just waking increase from slumber. The grabs a foam ball and throws it right into the basketball hoop hanging top top his window. We room then required to the hallway wherein his dad knocks on the bathroom and announces his sisters Susan has been in the bathroom for 20 minutes. After she it s okay out, Simon sneaks in before dad can acquire into the bathroom.

*
Simon

Next we check out the family members gathered roughly the kitchen table eating breakfast. It’s the normal talk around the breakfast table. Simon’s bike has a level tire for this reason he “borrows” Evan’s cycle forcing Evan to run after him. Simon is kind of a prick to his friend.

*
Evan

Evan is mad and tells Simon at the very least he never made that late. Additionally Simon adjusted the lock top top Evan’s locker. That switched it through his, looks choose Evan’s job is going from negative to worse.

Then Sonya come by and Evan awkwardly asks her if she is going to the game on Saturday. She says “Yeah. Uh how abut you?” Evan says he is additionally going and also wants to recognize if they might go together. That is climate interrupted by Simon involvement in next to Sonya.

*
The apologize of Evan’s eye

Sonya informs Evan that she is going v Simon and also walks off through him. Evan 보다 mockingly repeats what she says. I honestly am not sure why they room friends, due to the fact that Simon doesn’t give any fucks about Evan or his feelings.

Evan mirrors up so late to mathematics class and also gets embarrassed through his teacher. Simon tries to apologizes, however I am not buying it and also neither is Evan. Evan’s pencil climate breaks. Later in the work Evan runs as much as Simon and also tells him Mr. Poe is finished through his computer game and also is ready to try it out.

Mr. Poe the wacky scientific research teacher

The boys race to his office or activities to check it out as they gained the first crack in ~ the game. The video game is a virtual fact game, i beg your pardon is programmed to simulation day-to-day life. Since Simon goes an initial it start off together a usual day for him.

But it is odd and whimsical. He can’t see his family, however he deserve to hear them and they cannot watch him. This makes Simon frustrated and he operation up stairway to find this guy:

*
Let’s contact him Mercury Man

He explains that he is a computer virus and also he wants inside Simon’s brain. The virus speak Simon the will provide him 10 minutes to prevent him and starts the clock.

The virus renders the video game start over. That is transported earlier to the college where he tells Mr. Poe that their is a virus inside the game. Mr. Poe goes ballistic on him and also tells Simon to get out. Simon gets out yet soon finds the end he is tho in the game, went he looks at his hand and sees this:

*
It’s a female finish of a computer plug connector

Simon than goes into the hallway and sees Evan through Sonya. He tells Simon “what’s dorn forgot the combo?” and also then leaves v Sonya. Simon is in the hallway and also everyone is wade backwards. Simon than runs right into math class, where he is all of sudden in just his boxer shorts.

Simon runs back into the hallway and is suddenly fully clothed. He also runs right into the virus. Simon runs home and also up come the computer room, whereby he is able come somehow connect with Evan. Evan claims “Somebody planted a virus.” Simon states “it was you, wasn’t it?” then the virus interferes v the communication and also tells Simon the is his 2 minute warning. Simon pleas v Evan to gain him out. Evan finally with the upper hand claims “Not till you apples for every the things you did come me.”

*
blackmail

Simon than shows Evan his hand, and also Evan says he can’t put in the abort code since the program has frozen. He speak Simon that can get in it from inside the game, but prior to he is able to tell it come Simon, his article fades away. Simon properly guesses that is the combo to Evan’s locker. But the virus still tries to connect to Simon:

*
It’s favor intercourse with computer system parts

Simon presses the enter key just in the nick the time and is lastly brought earlier to his reality. Poe asks the if he is okay and Simon states he is. As they leaving this happens:

I’m back!

Then we room brought earlier to the campfire and also The Gary says “the end.” Kiki was impressed and also says “All right, an excellent story.”

*
She has a pretty smile

Tucker claims “You recognize what ns liked around the story?” to which Betty Ann claims “What?”

*
Betty Ann “Guys I have actually a break dancing competition coming up following week, you should come clock me!”

Tucker replies “No matter how poor a point Evan did, Simon constantly forgave him. He says this looking in ~ The Gary, the is implied that Tucker is the one who planted the virus in his computer. The Gary says “You know what ns liked around the story?” Tucker claims “What?” The Gary claims “That the virus is quiet alive, and if you’re no careful, it’ll jump into your computer.” Tucker jumps up and also leaves in a hurry.

*
I an obstacle you come a dance turn off Betty Ann- Tucker

The Gary puts out the fire and also they every leave, through Betty Ann putting her arm around Kiki, which is sort of a sweet moment when girlfriend think about it. That shows how close they are as friends. However yet again, The Gary fails to declare the meeting over.

Moira’s Thoughts:

This episode is O.K. That is not The Gary’s ideal story, but for what that is about, it is fine. I think that is important to remember the this was made at a time when computers were no as usual as they space today. If a person obtained a virus it can do a lot of damage.

I walk not care for the villain in this story.Simon was no a likable character together he to be a cock to Evan.Betty Ann appears to recognize a lot about computers or viruses, i beg your pardon is sort of foreshadowing since she desires to be a doctor.Also not really certain where the whole break dancing thing came from, but maybe it will continue to be a story within a story (story inception!)
