Funny you should mention Straczynski, as he was a valMichael
favorite and VM also admired "Babylon 5." Set anything in space and I'm going to watch it for a while, but I categorized "Babylon 5" with "Deep Space Nine" which is to say, not Science Fiction but Social-Science Fiction, and it quickly bores me. As a matter of fact I thought about this (and valMichael
) the other day when I ran across a book of mine titled, "The Complete Book of Scriptwriting" by J. Michael Straczynski. I've never read it but I did pull it out to give it a reading. In "Lost" I guess I was talking about the introduction of characters like Locke's father (played by Kevin Tighe,) Ben Linus, Penny, Faraday, (played by Jeremy Davies) etc. The way the plot developed was through the introduction of a new character who the ALSO somehow shoehorned into the overall narrative. And I was thinking of things like "Fringe," also by the same production team which also at times expanded by this means.
I Love It. Here's your typical racial profiling allegation deconstructed because of a police camera. Read about what this kid did and then said he was "profiled." Some people want the police to protect "them" but do not want Police Officers to be able to go home at night.
