Non Productive Monday

In an attempt to waste as much time as possible, I spent today writing up a little thing in the forums: One season sci fi wonders. Shows that never were, I suppose. Canceled after a handful of episodes, they’re all left out there to fade away into our cult-culture. Some were great — like Firefly — and some sucked — like Logan’s Run. But they all had promise. If only in their premise.

Of course, as I put that post together, I was driven to go to Youtube (and elsewhere) and dig up episodes of each show. Many of them aren’t yet on disc… Which is a shame, because there’s some great drunken TV marathons I could do. Imagine a Logan’s Run drinking game! Okay, every time Francis misses from point blank range, chug!

The one season wonder thread was inspired by the great shows that went wrong thread, which I used to waste time on Friday.

Notice a theme? A desperate struggle to eat up the hours at my day job and avoid working. And, yet, I’m still exhausted. And strangely guilty.

    Don’t feel bad. It’s that Puritanical kack that we all go through — you must feel productive by someone else’s standards or else you feel bad. You’re not alone, Nacho!
