See for yourself- Menu shots found here. Good Lord! There's nobody piloting the ship! Get out of the way! Runaway starship! :P I don't remember the episode(s), although I think one of the first was the one about the shape-shifting-salt-sucking alien. Yeah, that was " Man Trap ". NBC chose it to be ...

You mean we were guessing about a comic that you put up on the site over a year and a half ago? That was just downright sneaky, Greg. :cry:

What the heck is a Neo-Con anyway? I know it's short for Neo-Conservative...but just what is a Neo-Conservative?

The thing that's struck me most is the ligthting and colors that were used on the show. It's very impressionistic. I noticed over the years, the bridge lighting varied from episode to episode during the first season, but by the second season it was pretty uniform, and bright, as opposed to the dimm...

I watched..."Charlie X" this evening "He had a mean look. I had to freeze him. I like happy looks." WPIX used to cut out that whole rec-room scene, I remember, with Uhura singing, and Charlie doing card tricks. But they left in the girls doing cartwheels in the gym, which Sci-Fi cut out last time I...

Personally, I prefer Mr. Blue, Mr. Green, Mr. Brown, and Mr. Gray from The Taking of Pelham One Two Three . A friend of mine, who grew up Manhattan, told me a story about Lawrence Tierney (Joe Cabot). He said that when he was a kid, in the early '70s, he once decided to run away from home, and wound...

To Boldly Split Infinitives

I may have to save up my shekels and pick up this DVD set. It's better than watching it on Sci-Fi Channel, where they butcher the show to pieces. OK, let's all reminiss about our first Star Trek experience. Hey, it's more wholesome than discussing some other first experiences :wink: . I've been a Tr...

I guess the plan is to bore the Fantastic Four to death with six hours of Garcia playing scales. ;-) Hey, Jerry only played scales for half the show; usually the latter half, after he had taken a bunch of drugs during internmission. :P Actually, I saw the sans-Jerry Dead at Jones Beach , a few week...

Re: How does somebody become a comic book editor?

So how does somebody "break-in" as a comic book editor? One of the teachers I had at SVA, who was a veteran of the comic book biz, would have answered that question "Remove your brain, cut out your heart, and poke out your eyes." Of course, I had a few other teachers who actually were, at one time ...

Eric is only telling half the story. Scott also declared that is now a right-wing Republican, and will be stumping for Bush. The current Morning Improv is called "Four More Years". :P

Good strip, Becks, if a bit cynical.

Gotta disagree with that theory of random mutations. Personally, I believe in Divine Evolution, i.e. evolution guided by a higher, universal intelligence, call It God, or what you will. But that's a theological discussion for another day.

Pretty interesting, Greg. Sadly, I'm still using the free webspace offered by my ISP, which doesn't have PHP suppoert. I'm trying to use Javascript to do a lot of things PHP can do, but it's very clunky. I wonder if you can point us to any good web hosting services that are PHP enabled...and cheap.....
