Re: Thomas Edison crime fighter? NBC pilot in development

Please God no.

Not another cultural bastardization second-rate TV ripoff of a theatrical hit. Leave Edison the hell be. Hollywood as already had Tom Sawyer become Secret Service AND converted Sherlock Holmes into the only thing US audiences can apparently understand: a fast-moving, wise-cracking action hero. Yeah, I know, they had to make him relevant to today's sophisticated cellphone society. When will this s--t stop already? When will NBC relinquish its status as the Starscream of broadcast networks???

Edison wasn't just the Steve Jobs of the 19th century. He changed our way of life threefold, more than Jobs's sycophants claim he did. Edison deserves better than this.
