Great news for all you people out there with the same interests as me! (Me being Twitch, which is me)
First, the complete 41-DVD set of “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” — 105 episodes, plus all kinds of extras — is coming out October 21. This is the same set that was previously available only through Time-Life, with the attache case and everything, but now it’ll be in the stores and 50 bucks cheaper.
And I was torn on this one, but finally gave in. Tim Minear’s unproduced screenplay of Robert A. Heinlein’s classic “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress” has been released online. I wasn’t sure if, technically, this was a copyright violation since Mr. Minear didn’t put it there and I don’t download things I’m not supposed to, but apparently he approves of it being spread around and read. nd Walker downloaded it for me anyway because I couldn’t click the link with my eyes closed, so U.S. Copyright Office enforcers should talk to him and totally not me. That’s “Walker M. Gerhardt,” you probably know him already. Anyway, the script is great. There’s more than a few changes to fit a massive and detailed book into a two-hour movie, but the tone feels right and it’s way better than “Starship Troopers” even if it did have Neil Patrick Harris.
