E411: I blew it out the god damn airlock.

Emergency 411

When you find yourself adrift in outer space without a spacesuit, the first thing to remember is don’t panic.

Seriously, it uses up your precious O2 that much faster.

I was so proud of myself for having this idea until I realized it bore a striking similarity to an episode I had already made.

Let’s see how these two compare…

  • Leaving a vessel unexpectedly
  • Falling uncontrollably
  • Scrambling for a vital piece of life-saving equipment
  • Kubrick reference
  • It’s no help at all

Maybe I should have re-watched my earlier episode concerning how to have an idea:

I assure you, the next one will be longer and more “political”.

    Yeah, but it’s all about the brilliant timing and visual jokes. You have but one imagination in that brain of yours – if we held Hollywood to the same rigorous standards, do you think there would be a movie like “Terminator Salvation” coming out? I think not. Plus, it’s more forgivable to repeat a 30-second idea. It’s not a waste of time at all. A 2 hour movie that wastes your time with a repeated idea? That’s reason to impeach.

    If a winning formula is so terrible then why have I eaten macaroni & cheese the last three nights in a row? Because it’s delicious, that’s why!
