You can add me to the list of people who hope this will be the standard from now on.
As far as this issue goes, I didn't much like it from the start, but I didn't consider it a major problem until American Thrift. I was really looking forward to part 2, and was severely disappointed when it arrived. In addition to the lack of Veronica, the style just seemed totally different. Combine that with the minimal cohesion the short had in the first place, and I felt like I was watching two completely different shorts that just happened to have the same name (neither of which I really got the point of). American Thrift part 2 wasn't actually bad, but I loved part 1, and part 2 was definitely not what I spent all that time waiting for.
So yeah, I'm happy to pay double for double length shorts, made all at once.
On the subject of this short. First time watching it I actually did think he said. ..." They were taking the drugs out of my system. With 'Droral' they called it. I assumed Droral was a kind of anti-heroin drud I'd never heard of. A second later Kevin cleared that up and I made a mental note to smack myself on the forehead later.
I've been through alcohol and benzodiazipine withdrawal more than a couple times. I'm an alchoholic, and before that I was hooked on sleeping pills for at least 15 years (should have stayed with the pills). To say it sucks would be an understatement. But at least I was never this stupid.

And seriously, Moose hires the guy to be a boxer, then pressures him into trying a drug he'd never had right before the first fight?
