that Actingman sent me a package of Trevor's episodes and asked for
reactions. The post I made about topical references were a bunch of
little things I noticed about some of the episodes that couldn't be
tied together any other way. :-)
Someone once pointed out that shows can be too topical. For
example, "I Love Lucy" is still funny to new audiences today because
the situations Lucy gets herself into are universal and timeless. On
the other hand, some episodes of "All in the Family" have lost their
initial punch because they are full of jokes about then-President
Nixon, which new audiences today have trouble identifying with.
Getting back to SEARCH: If anyone out there has a video dub of "Ends
of the Earth," please let us know!
