Thank you. When I read Reed's review I thought I was going to start bleeding from my ears. He has a long and distinguished career, and he is by no means the kind of reviewer you'd normally want to slap repeatedly while screaming "SUBTEXT!" but his failure to explain the premise (even with a lot of spoilers) sure makes it seem like it went over his head. It's a geeky premise to be sure; one that is meant to be understood by geeks and to please them, and he's welcome to disdain the audience (me) if that's how he feels about geeks. But whether he likes it or not, you'd think he could at least identify and acknowledge the critical aspects of the "spoofing." Not to mention getting the plot correct. Oy.
