It Gets Worse Every Year

Every time I teach property, the subject of self-help repossession comes up at some point, usually in the context of a landlord's attempt to lock-out a defaulting tenant.  I inevitably want to reference the film Repo Man.  Two years ago, I got a lot of blank looks when I mentioned the '80s classic, so I now know to ask in advance how many people have seen the movie.  Last year, it was about ten out of sixty people.  This year, it was two -- count 'em, two, out of sixty.  Arrrrgh.

Ben! We're old. What do you expect. The question is: what's the 2000s version of Repo Man?

What's Repo Man? Just kidding. Last year, I used Rent and it worked well.

Little known fact about Repo Man: it was produced by Mike Nesmith of The Monkeys. He had to do something with all the money he got from his mother after she invented liquid paper.
