Amazing, an Ellison interview and I don't think I was tempted to punch him even once.
Harlan once wrote speculative fiction about agreeing with him for once, so now he's gonna sue your ass.
Rick Green agreeing with a pre-recorded videotape of Harlan Ellison is oddly creepy.
blah blah blah I'm Harlan Ellison and motherfucking Moses owes me money.
I saw Soldier once. It's a pretty good episode.
I agree that for once I actually agree with Ellison. That is amazing, I like some of his writing, but I think that he's usually such a giant ass.
I understand where he's coming from, and I fully support it and have heard it from other authors and had no problem agreeing with them, but he could probably say it a little less intensely and make me not as likely to want to punch him.
Demon with a Glass Hand is an amazing Outer Limits.
Funny thing is that this interview or whatever omits that Ellison also argued that Cameron "borrowed" from I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream, as well. There was more backstory to Skynet in the original script, supposedly, about it becoming self-aware and collaborating with similar computers in Russia and China to wipeout the human race, etc. etc. which is also the back story of I Have No Mouth...
Who is that weird geek?
Not Ellison, the other one.
That was pretty interesting.

It's totally fitting: giant asshole Ellison vs giant asshole Cameron. I'm glad Ellison got some cash from the deal - I nominate Cameron as the greater douche.
In the episode Soldier, it's cats that can recognize the enemy, can anyone confirm this dim memory of mine?
Also, does Demon With a Glass Hand take place largely in the Bradbury Hotel, a la the end of Bladerunner? I may just be senile at this point ...
Yes, Demon was filmed in the Bradbury. Well, parts of it anyway.
Reused stories in Hollywood? IMPOSSIBLE!
So many of these sci-fi guys are right-wing nutcase assholes anyhow.
Isn't everything for the last 40 years an OL or Twilight Zone ripoff?
Does the guy throw in "Acknowledgement to the works of Harlan Ellison" at the end of an interview just to be a dick?
