The ‘7th Heaven’ When The Dad Got Shot And Blamed Video Games

(gentle music) – [Narrator] What wholesome
game is Ruthie playing? – But I got shot, just like in
the video game called Baboom. – [Narrator] Ricky let her play at school. You kill mofos. Baboom rules. Annie prohibits Baboom. Mary hit Matt with a basketball. Okay. Eric’s home from a tournament. – There was this kid who was so–
(phone ringing) – [Narrator] No, please,
finish that sentence. Simon’s new girlfriend,
Deena, is distraught. Her ex Johnny’s crazy! He’s coming after Simon. Simon gives Johnny his
most threatening howdy and says Deena’s taken. Johnny’s pissed. Ruthie accidentally broke Ricky’s Baboom. Baboom possessed her. She had to have it and just grabbed it. She’s sent home to dream about that sweet, sweet game all day. Simon is late. Eric’s on it. They were hiding, just not long enough. – Stay out of this, or
I’ll take you out of this. – Take me out of this? (clicks tongue) – Get it? – [Narrator] Johnny vows to shoot Simon with a 38 special when
he least suspects it, which technically would’ve been
any time before saying that. Eric asks, what’s wrong? Uh, nothing. Not fooling Eric. Someone’s playing on Eric’s phone, perhaps related to Simon’s secret? Simon snitches his tiny blond heart out. – Deena’s old boyfriend
said he was gonna shoot me. – [Narrator] Eric is disgusted. Blasting kids in the face is his thing. Matt visits Shana. Her brother George likes Mary, seems nice. Shana suggests he might not be nice. George violently wrestles
Mary’s number out of Shana. Oh okay, so he’s not nice, got it. Annie and Eric agree not to tell the kids that a thug with more puka
shell jewelry than pubes put on a hit out on Simon. Eric ran a scholastic tattle-telethon. – I left messages for
every other school employee I could think of, including
the cafeteria lady. – [Narrator] Then blames video games and movies for corrupting the youth. Enter Ruthie yelling Baboom. Annie forbids her from using her imagination to play that game. Eric’s on the horn with
the assistant principal. His hands are tied until he
talks to Johnny’s parents. Gotta go by the book on
school shooting threats five months before Columbine. Simpler times. Simon and Deena will stay home until then. Not good enough. Eric’s going to Johnny’s. – Do you think maybe you should ask Sergeant Michaels to ride along with you? – Oh, I’ve got him
doing a little research. – [Narrator] He runs this town
like a 20 cent puppet show. George asks Mary out, but don’t tell Matt. Matt, by the way, warns
George might be dangerous. Wrong word to use, dude. Danger is horny teen cheat codes. Eric rats to Johnny’s dad, but
Johnny denies knowing Simon. Anyone would. – I think this conversation’s
gone far enough. – Do you own a gun? Oh, I thought so. – [Narrator] What tipped
you off, you’re in America? Watching Gone with the Wind gave Lucy the idea to slap her man. Violence, it’s everywhere, folks. Ruthie begs Simon for
help securing a Baboom. Simon, per usual, is worthless. Ruthie outsmarts him with
an unlocked sliding door. Sergeant Fresh Fade got intel. Johnny has a record, and
his dad owns a 38 special. How is it legal to share all this? They tell Papa John his
increasingly violent kid has a one way ticket
on the fuck-up express. They searched his locker. No gun, but. – An altar to violence. There are pictures of people torturing animals, a stack of gun ads, CDs of an extremely
sexual and violent nature, comic books along the same themes. – [Narrator] So a mix of good and bad. Eric’s fed up. Simon’s life is at stake. What’s worse, someone who
matters could get hurt, too. Deputy Clippers drops
some fun gun statistics. – Guns don’t kill people,
people kill people! – People with guns kill people! – [Narrator] Keep talking. Think you’ll see eye to eye any second. Johnny’s family is moving
him to private school. They will not be harassed about housing a killer kid or kid killer. Johnny gives Eric them crazy
white boy shooter eyes. Mary needs Lucy to cover for her date. She refuses. – If you wanna slap me, you can slap me. It’s not that big a deal. – [Narrator] Only Lucy wants to slap him mid-argument after a kiss,
just like that old movie. This chick is certifiably nuts. Mary covers for Lucy’s assault, forcing Lucy to now cover for her. This fucking family. Matt spies Shana’s bruises. Their mom smacked George,
now he smacks Shana. Also I’m sure Pac-Man and MC Hammer played a part in this somehow. Simon and Deena place their life in the paws of Happy the guard dog. Matt smells Lucy’s lies. She spills her guts about
Mary under zero pressure. Eric hits his Christ cubicle. Oh, fuck. Here’s Johnny. Eric says go easy. Baboom. Seemed easy enough for Johnny. Mary’s date with George got
physical over a game of pinball. She whoops him, then they tag team call him a sicko who needs help. Step one, stop playing
this devil’s jukebox. Annie can’t believe her holy
man just got one hole holier. Ruthie now sees video games are bad because her dad got capped. After showing no remorse
for attempted murder, Johnny’s locked up until 25. Eric says he’s going to help
George with his anger issues. But we never see George ever again. Probably fucking killed himself. So, what did we learn today? Violence is all around us,
in fictional video games and movies from the 1930s and pick-up basketball
games with Jessica Biel. But don’t listen to the
siren song of brutality, because you’ll shoot a reverend
over a 12-year-old girl. See ya next time on A
Very Special Episode.

  1. Once again, the funniest part when you think about it, this fucking show lasted almost 10 YEARS!! like who the fuck thought this show was worth 10 years of content in retrospect?!?

  2. This Camden father Is a pedophile in real life. Her long time wife dumped him after discovering he tried yo hace sex with minor girls

  3. That's like 3 seasons worth of TV storylines crammed into one episode. Geez. I kind of want to watch it now. See what was going on. Lol

  4. The kid who plays the shooter bears a very strong resemblance to Noah Hathaway (Atreyu in The Neverending Story). I had to check to make sure it wasn't him (then of course realized Hathaway was also well into his 20's when the episode was made so couldn't be him.)

  5. How the fuck did people watch this show? It's fucking trash lol It's so poorly written and utterly stupid. I know a lot of shows back in the day had rough writing, but this one is just fucking terrible. lol

  6. You say this was 5 months before Columbine, but at 2:25 you can see Gruntilda in the magazine, Banjo Kazooie wasn't announced until after Columbine.

  7. With all seriousness, thank you for making this. With all the recent controversy about violent video games, we needed you to show how old and tired this excuse is and make fun of how everyone uses this black-and-white scapegoat to solve our political issues. Keep up the good work. I’ve liked this video and subscribed to your channel. 💚

  8. We have violent video games AND gun control in Australia and people tend to never get shot….just saying America.

  9. i thought this show was fake… like the weed episode with Jessica Biel… I thought it was fake I swear I thought it was a bit.

  10. To this day, every time I hear someone say “Guns don’t kill people..” I immediately think of the dad yelling “People with GUNS kill people!!” Lmao

  11. its weird that these people can somehow have both extreme conservative and extreme liberal values at the same time

  12. Still gotta go by the book on school shooters to avoid getting sued; it's just that the book has changed.

    (On a related note, since this is pre-Columbine, there weren't a lot of zero-tolerance public school policies, so Lucy shouldn't have been in nearly that much trouble for slapping the older boy sexually assaulting her.)

    (Anyone else feel disturbed consternation by getting the same "flutters" when seeing Noah Hathaway today, as they did when crushing on him as a kid? I'm sorry! I just watched The Neverending Story so many times that it just imprinted in me!!😩)

  14. I did not know that stuff about Stephen Collins until I started watching these. I guess Bruce Mathis is going to be making a re appearance.

    what did he actually do though? " "inappropriate sexual conduct with three female minors"" could mean a lot of things.
