Oh, there was one other thing about the Saved pilot I should have brought up last message (he says, as he watches episode 2.) There was a major reality stupidity in it. The character has to get something postmarked that day, so as midnight approaches he’s spending time deciding whether to mail it. Midnight’s the big countdown. He’s just got to drop it into the mail and he’ll be find.
But in reality, when it’s not income tax day (and it’s not), where can you actually get something postmarked at midnight? Metered, perhaps, but there was no sign he was headed to a postal meter.
