Thursday Hangovers

  1. I tend to agree more with Abigail Nussbaum who suggests that The West Wing is more fantasy than science fiction, but I think it’s a really interesting exercise to re-imagine non-genre books, TV, and movies as genre. So often we see the opposite impulse at work, creators falling over themselves to distance their project from the supposed stigma of the sf or fantasy label.
    That said, I’ve had a tough time coming up with a lot of other, different examples.

    Here’s a thing: there’s a new season of 24 every 12 months, but in terms of internal chronology, the gap is usually 18 months or longer. 24 is moving into the future faster than we are. Given the increasing implausibility of the conspiracies the show features, I’m expecting Jack Bauer vs. aliens any year now. ๐Ÿ˜‰
