Trivia

The following comment about the summary provided by Shawn Wilson has been made by an "anonymous" user: "It did not create infinite copies of him. What it did is bounce him all around the earth in time and space (different places) but there was only one of him. (suggest the contributor actually watch it) " [By: Anonymous].

((Am unable to tell if this comment is correct, or of any value; but it had to be removed from its original location and so the Trivia section will have to serve as "storage" for the time being until someone else decides what to do with it.)) See more »

Write a jingle and win a trip into space
29 July 2000 | by dcorr123See all my reviews

NASA decides to launch the first "ordinary" man into space, based on writing a winning jingle. Our astronaut gets more than he bargained for with a bizarre trip through space and time. For myself the most memorable parts include: 1) Bob and Ray's ongoing commentary and their attempts to remember Armstrong's "one great step..." line and 2) a future in which the government tries to make everybody equal by reducing them to the lowest common denominator of abilities. It's a real trip watching a ballet performed in which the dancers have to wear weights to make themselves clumsy.
