A Big Ol' Dianne Wiest Infection

The case for Running Home From School To Catch Star Blazers

If you were the right age, and were very very lucky, you discovered the most amazing show ever: Star Blazers. It was a simple story. The earth is being turned into a nuclear wasteland by aliens. So, a WWII battleship is converted into a Space Battleship, and sent on a mission to the planet Iscandar for the device needed to save the earth. [And it was always on right after school let out so you really had to book it home to catch the whole thing! - Dave] Even now the theme song brings me back to when I was five years old, watching this on the old TV with tinker toy parts replacing the knobs that had fallen off, wondering why channel 29 was the taft station. — Cpt Carrot (& Glark)

This cold open from Brooklyn Nine-Nine's The Overminding is amazing and everything a sitcom cold open can be. The pregnantiest of pregnant pauses. — Glark with video assist by RevmodDon.
