    If they had had TUBES crossing the park high up in the air they would have been happy.

    Or maybe not. Woody could have had his way with Soon-Yi in one of the tubes and that would have potentially gross.

    Are we talking about vacuum tube that shoot every one from one house to the other at hyper velocity on trollies... Or just protection from the weather and poor people.

    Have you been watching "Legit"?

    It's about an Australian comedian, Jim Jefferies, suffering American Culture as he rants each week about how every molecule in the universe is out to annoy him. Nationalism and all, your boy making big... I discovered last week that the worst new American show of this season (Beauty and the Beast) is staring a Kiwi who used to make me laugh a lot when he was working on a project that wasn't written by emotionally retarded morons.

    I'm so confused.

    If airplanes have made the world smaller and more homogenized just wait until we all get transporters.

    And the tubes aren't vacuum. You have to walk, or scamper. A kid can probably ride his/her scooter really fast through them for fun.

    No I haven't watched Legit, I am devoted to finishing every sci fi series ever and there just isn't room for modern stuff about modern life unless there are super powers in it like Misfits.

    That takes two years if you don't have a job.

    Then what are you going to do?

    I've considered following in Possum's paw prints and watching all of classic Who. I believe that should carry me right to the brink of death, assuming there haven't been another 20 series of the Clone Wars by then in which case I might actually miss out on something.

    Clone Wars has been cancelled.

    Disney wants it's own Saturday Morning Cartoon they can be solely responsible for and milk.

    Classic Doctor who is small.

    SMMMMAAALLLL.

    Between 6 to 12 episodes a year.

    okay, each "episode" is aired in 2 to 6, 20 minutes parts, so a single "episode" can last for 2, sometimes 3 hours... Don't get me started about the War Games.

    Patrick Troughton actually said "this is my last one, I'm quitting" so they added another 10 parts to the War Games.

    That fuck is a Oedipussal monster!

    Isn't there like over 700 episodes of Classic Who? I remember Possum had a countdown in her sig line and it was huge.

    And I'm optimistically including future incarnations of The Clone Wars. Optimistic as far as content.

    The next cartoon series is going to compliment the new movies.

    When do the rights revert to Lucas?

    It might be 50 years before they revisit the Clone War era.

    There are 155 Doctor Who "stories" of varying lengths captainplantetted together from usually 4 or 6 twenty-minute-episodes, with some extremisms, and a movie.

    Over a hundred of those 20 minute episodes are lost (from the first 6 years) because the BBC burned the tapes on file to make room in the archives for IMPORTANT stuff.

    Oh I guess Possum listed the 20 minutes individually. Well that's still a ways off for me, I think I'll be doing Blake's 7 before that.

    And yeah I had heard about the destroyed episodes which just makes me fall down and thank the tech gods for saving stuff being out of the owners hands these days.

    Blake's Seven. 4 seasons of 13 episodes.

    50 minute episodes however.

    That's less than three days with no to very little sleep.

    I was in your position a very long time ago.

    There's just not enough Science fiction out there before you find things on the internet like "Dating Rules from my Future Self" and high five yourself for scraping the barrel and finding frakking gold... But alas it's just a series of cleverly disguised adverts for feminine hygiene products, so remiss in your failure you'll start looking for the noose that helps you wank.

    Have you all thought about reading? You know the stuff that should be series but are not. My favorite is all of the "Darkover" stories (IMHO Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover stuff is way better than the King Arthur/Avalon stuff.)

    I am in awe of the ability to change the direction of a thread, that you two possess.

    I keep waiting for someone to bring Fred Saberhagen's Berserker stories to the screen. Can't believe it hasn't happened after Star Wars opened the floodgates 30-odd years ago.

    I'm a terribly slow reader. I pretty much only read on the train. I am on my fourth book since getting my kindle in October last year. I'm reading the Stargate Atlantis Legacy series and halfway through book four. The character portrayals are excellent and a good 1/3 of the story is very dramatic and intriguing and all about something huge that happened to my favorite character (Dr. McKay :adore: ) .

    At some point I'm going to read the Time cop Trek book, the first one, which is the last hard copy book I bought before going kindle.

    But meanwhile, tv.

    A Janeway trinity. Admiral Janeway as the Mother, Captain Janeway as the daughter and Borg Janeway as the Holy Janeway.

    So if you crucify Holly Janeway over a doorframe, you have to kiss?

    No this is in the future so all the pujas and practices are mushed up and half forgotten and syncretized with alien stuff. In my Holy Janeway religion the Orions showed up and waved their censers full of pheromones around some century past and now the concept of three into one is totally lascivious. Totally.
