Obscure Interest Sharing Thread!

Recommended Posts

Got a thing you're really into but nobody in the forums is into it? Now's the time to share it!

Let's start with mine! Wie is de Mol and De Mol are the Dutch and Belgian versions of The Mole respectively. They're both enticing and fun to watch while fucking you up at same time.

The premise of both shows is that 10 participants try to win money from assignments, and the winner gets the money from the pot. In WIDM, they are Dutch celebrities(Though Belgian ones aren't unheard of), but in De Mol, they are Belgian civilians. The plot twist is that one of the participants, the Mole, is actively trying to sabotage and keep money away from the pot.

At the end of every episode, there is a test containing 20 questions about the Mole's identity. The person with the fewest correct answers gets eliminated. However, jokers/pasvragen can be used to correct one answer per joker/pasvragen. Exemptions can be used to avoid the test all together, guaranteeing the person makes it to the next episode. Of course, the Mole is never eliminated. There are also times where the group is given an option to avoid anyone being eliminated for the episode.

At the final 3, the final test is given. Unlike the normal test, there are 40 questions in WIDM, but I think in the Belgian version it's 30 instead? I can't remember. The person who gets the most answers right wins and gets the money from the pot. In WIDM, the mole isn't revealed until the reunion, the episode after the finale where the final test takes place. Sometimes, they'll reveal the winner or runner-up at the finale, but never the mole. In De Mol, however, the mole, winner, and runner-up are all revealed at the finale, making the reunion completely optional.

In WIDM, after the reveal, they discuss the mole's sabotages and actions. So aside from the reveal, the rest of the reunion is optional.

Now only S8 - S10 and S15 - S19  of WIDM and S4 - S7 of De Mol are completely subbed. And also, some seasons spoil others! So here's some warnings for the subbed seasons.

Spoiler

Spoilerless: WIDM S18 and S8, De Mol S4 and S7

Minor/Optional spoilers: WIDM S19(First boot of S18 is spoiled in the first episode, and the reunion spoils S15's mole, however that is after the reveal so it's optional)

Spoils: S9(Pretty much spoils the moles of WIDM S1 - S8, so avoid it), S15(Spoils WIDM S8 winner), S16(Second episode has guest appearances of 5 past moles, I have no clue what seasons though because I pretty much stopped watching that season to avoid spoilers)

I haven't seen them all yet: WIDM S10 and S17, De Mol S5 and S6

Also, there's a show called Moltalk on WIDM's website which discusses WIDM episodes. Avoid that, but especially if you haven't seen S15. They also often have past winners and past moles on that show.(NOTE: The S15 warning really only matters in recent Moltalks, I have no clue who hosts the earlier ones). Also, avoid the Wikipedia pages of anyone on the show until you've completed the season! Also, when it comes to WIDM, avoid any host's page.

Spoiler

Because two of the hosts of WIDM were also participants.

EDIT: I didn't considered this last night but also watch it on Private/Incognito mode! Spoilers might start to appear on your recommended videos if you watch a lot of it.

ANYWAYS, after all that talking. Here are the links to the subtitles!

WIDM English Subs

De Mol English Subs S4 and S5

De Mol English Subs S6 and S7

De Mol English Subs S7(NOTE: The actual episodes are in the description of the videos, unlike the above this also has Drive links)

I’m known to have a bit of a taste with more obscure pieces of animation with classics I’ve made SBC discover with my love for them such as the amazing Wunschpunsch and Eek! The Cat. 

I guess my music tastes can be a bit more obscure (but a lot of electronica like IDM still have quite a bit of a cult following), so maybe more of my obscure favorites are a lot of the non Fila Brazillia-downtempo acts on the amazing Pork Recordings record label. Bullitnuts and Moss for example are awesome artists with the downtempo electronica sound... probably the same with the duo I haven’t tried out yet from the label called Baby Mammoth. Brothomstates comes in mind for more obscure IDM but everyone else in mind that I really love are a bit more famous.

I'm not really sure how obscure the You Don't Know Jack games are, but I've never known of anyone outside of my family speaking of them so I'll put them here. Basically it's a trivia/comedic mix of a game, with some host that constantly likes to poke fun at you. My dad owned the PS1 version since as far back as I can remember, and even though I was way younger than the intended audience I always found it to be an interesting game. It wasn't until around 2014 when I found out about the series as a whole, and I became enamored in some of those videos. Fast forward to present day, and just a week ago I made a Steam account to purchase the first four volumes in the series. So far, it's been worth the wait. All that's left now is to wait for my brother to come home for the weekend so we can try out the multiplayer...

I love Jackbox Games. They have a party pack series of other games that are pretty fun to play with friends/family.

Other game franchises I love are Five Nights at Freddy's & Bendy and the Ink Machine, both indie horror games. FNAF specifically gets a ton of undeserved hate, and even though it's annoying, I still love the games and have continued to support them since late 2014. Bendy has alot of the same elements as FNAF, but I didn't get into it until last year.

I also enjoy watching videos covering internet mysteries/real-life mysteries/ARGs. Some of my favorite channels who talk about this stuff are Nexpo, blameitonjorge, and ScareTheater.
