Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Last night's Enterprise had ten minutes of slash fiction in it, only it wasn't fiction. As Leonard said, "They're gonna have to move this to cable!"
The West Wing had its repetition-motif all during the first five minutes, even before the theme song (that is, three different people asked a person whether he'd known anyone on the plane to D.C.). In addition, Toby gave a speech that holds the current record for Didacticism In A Show That Is Not Seventh Heaven.
