Not my home, but it reminds me of an episode of The X-Files called Home.  That episode was one of one of the most disturbing things I've ever seen on network television, as it involved - and I'm not exaggerating here - murder, incest, infanticide, amputees, and long-term bound captivity.  You know, wholesome family entertainment. When I type all that out, I'm still amazed this was on broadcast TV!  I remember watching the episode with my wife when it premiered and as soon as it finished we got a call from one of our X-File fan friends who opened with, "What the @#$% was that?!"  It was a great episode though.  Really!  Anyway, Winkelmann is a lot more picturesque and its advancing decrepitude is actually part of its charm, but it does have a bit of a Homey sort of vibe at the same time.


  1. The episode was so disturbing that it was actually banned from being repeated by the network due to its content.

    Although, the Flukeworm episode (officially called "The Host") is the one that personally freaked me out the most. It still spooks me sometimes.

  2. It spooks the crap out of me if I think about that episode when I'm on the toilet. Literally. ;-)
