Oh, lord, where does one *begin*? Hell, the first season of B5 was full of
ponderous foundation-laying that just went on and on and on until you wanted to
stick a fork in your own eye just to stop it...a thousand years ago this, a
thousand years ago that, blah blah blah end of the known universe and do you
fasten or zip?

And as for Spidey...I recently counted and he used the word "the" 427 times in
a single issue. 427?! What, he couldn't find any GOOD words to take up that
space? Is he being paid by the word or the thought?

I'm just appalled...appalled, I say.
