5MXL: Five-Minute "The First Two Deaths"
 
If you've been visiting 5MV's <a href="https://www.facebook.com/fiveminutenet/">Facebook page</a>, or some of the threads here, you know I haven't been <i>completely</i> silent this year. (If you haven't been visiting, start now! The FB page is public -- you don't have to become a member or anything.) However, there hasn't yet been an update in the classic sense, and I have just enough time to correct that before the year is up. Luckily, I have a couple of things that are finished but that I haven't got around to posting yet. Here's one of them: <b>Five-Minute "<a href="../excelsior/fiver.php?ep=thefirsttwodeaths">The First Two Deaths</a>"</b>, the first Excelsior fiver of Season 2.

More shortly. Shortlier than you may think! As I said, this is <i>one</i> of the things I'm late posting...

[ED: To broaden the audience for a couple of the jokes, Season 2 of XL carries the overall title "Murder in the Blue Morgue", and the episode after this one is "The Investigation".]

Why is Excelsior "XL"?

When I showed this fiver to Wowbagger, I knew he would notice that I had switched the order of the last two scenes. You might ask why I did that, I said, but here's a better question: why would you ever have an episode that <i>could</i> end on a big explosion and choose <i>not</i> to end it that way?

My answer to your question is similar. Sure, I don't <i>have</i> to use an abbreviation that starts with X. But why would I ever choose not to?

Lorhrok: I'm going to the other side of the ship now.
Rol: (Now to take his stuff.)

I just laughed at this again.
