    Danhauser's site publishes each episode's PSA bumper, in which the intended message for kids is actually spelled out directly.

    have you considered doing a readang with ADF's

    fuck, this new comment system is nearly unusable! that sentence fragment did not appear in preview.

    have you considered doing a readalong with ADF's TAS adaptations? I know you are intending to take a look at his ST material overall, hopefully including the records.

    Wow, I had no idea those PSA bumpers even existed! I wonder why they aren't included with the episodes on Netflix.

    Because they're fan-made. 😛

    I'll do for Alan Dean Foster what I did for James Blish: A standalone post looking at his overall work, association with Star Trek and the role his novelizations played in the developing fan culture.

    This episode reminds me of Horton Hears a Who, only without Horton.

    Here though we get the other side of children's television: The irritating assumption that it has to be overtly educational to be worthwhile

    I remember the grotesquerie that was inflicted on Galactica 1980 consequent to its airing in an earlier timeslot than its predecessor: Adama and Dr. Zee solemnly informing each other that "without rain, the crops cannot grow."

    Alan Dean Foster is the J. J. Abrams of novelisations.
