OK, I'll bite. What's the Sophie's Choice joke?
PM sent. But in the words of Bones before he started singing in TFF, "don't say I didn't warn you."


To vaguely interested parties, it isn't any better than the ketchup line in PULP FICTION, just somewhat more inventive.

Re: New unofficial Making of TMP book

I was thinking--maybe the problem was that STTMP wasn't long enough.

five six seven.

Now a miniseries is really needed for a big story like this--but here is a guess.

Had we seen the machine world looking at the simplicity of an Earth probe--very like some folks want religion rather than thinking, then even computers can become zealous. perhaps a sense of ennui, there. Samurai Jack proved you don't need a lot of dialog.

I wonder if the backstory to each character was done, game of Thrones style, STTMP might have appeared to fly along too fast?

WTF? What's with the ridiculous shipping costs?
On the assumption that you live in the United Sates, kindly spare a miniscule thought for those of us who reside overseas and are therefore reduced to using extortionately expensive outfits like Reship.com when dealing with scumbag eBay and Amazon Marketplace vendors who refuse to ship outside of the US.
I yielded to your wisdom and ordered a second copy. Surprised they haven't sold out yet.
