My friend Sean, father of my second god-daughter, and I IM each other every day. It's the only way for us to keep in contact since he's had to relocate to Taiwan for the needs of his family. And Sean is one of my most enthusiastic boosters when it comes to Toobworld.
Currently he's catching up on 'Deadwood' and that was informing his way of thinking in this particular IM. But he proposed a great idea and I ran with it.
I gotta warn you though - remember, he's been watching 'Deadwood' as well as 'Torchwood' in their unexpurgated forms. So it's had an effect on his language.....
LITTLE BUDDY: Of course, as a base of operations, you can not beat a fucking saloon.
SKIPPER: Just ask Guinan
SKIPPER: Or Sam Malone
LITTLE BUDDY: Ten Forward should have had whores
LITTLE BUDDY: I would have liked a Ten Forward more like deadwood, maybe it's that way in the Mirror Universe
LITTLE BUDDY: They should have a mirror universe TV show
SKIPPER: where they can do all the bad things they'd love to do with the regular characters.
LITTLE BUDDY: yup!
SKIPPER: Not just star trek but all shows. do it as an anthology.
LITTLE BUDDY: I'll bet the cast members would love to guest on it
LITTLE BUDDY: yeah...
LITTLE BUDDY: LOL
SKIPPER: different actors every week.
LITTLE BUDDY: You had that as a post, right?
SKIPPER: One week Star Trek - to launch the idea.
SKIPPER: The next week do it as the Mary Tyler Moore Show where she murders Lou Grant to gain control of the newsroom.
LITTLE BUDDY: LOL!
LITTLE BUDDY: Ooh, do Dick Van Dyke!
SKIPPER: Rob Petrie uses his wife to sleep with the boss in order to plot his own advancement. The Alan Brady show features a public execution of some criminal each week.
LITTLE BUDDY: All in the family, Archie would have to be in the ACLU, that's no fun
Just sayin', is all.....
