    And the area inside usually seems much larger than the exterior dimensions of the space craft could contain. They are sort of like outer space versions of a Tardis.

    I really liked the first four seasons of Roseanne but in the 5th season, it became the Darlene show.

    What really annoyed me about those later seasons was the way the adults talked about Darlene being dangerous, like if you crossed her she was going to do something vicious and violent to you. Yet the character never did anything like that. She was just a smart-mouthed kid. The only thing violent she ever did was beat up her younger and much-smaller little brother, which is something that all kids do. There was even one episode where she smarted off to the wrong girl and got the crap beaten out of her.

    She was a brat but hardly a serious threat to anyone. Well, except little DJ.

    Characters that are supposed to be great writers, but then when you get samples of what they've written it's trite and generic. What confounds me about this is that the whole thing is being written by a writer who needs to be good enough to get a job as a writer for a movie or TV show (not an easy job to land), yet doesn't seem able to come up with something good for the character that's supposed to be a great writer.

    For me it's just distracting. It's not like they need it to stand out, at least not in the two examples mentioned; a cat woman and a human boy amongst skeletons.

    The movie only came out to years after the episode so I'd assume he was still alive and well then.

    More gold shirts died than red shirts. People just don't notice them as much.

    Not sure if wholly accurate but I heard this started because of Jenny and 867-5309.

    That song came out in 1982. They were using 555 numbers well before that. I remember the Brady Bunch using one in the early 70s.
