Default TJI Brief #8: Nimoy announces results of Search

Four months ago, we lost one of the greats: Leonard Nimoy passed away at the age of 83. You probably noticed the memorial banner I made for the site and forums, but I had something else in mind too, and it's now finished. Hot off the presses, here's This Just In Brief #8: Nimoy announces results of Search.

This is a significant month here at FiveMinute.net -- old-timers should know why -- so stay tuned.

(You may notice a couple of interesting things in that TJI. One is that I've changed the look slightly: there's now a gray outline that should make the text easier to read against the unevenly-coloured background. Been meaning to do that for ages.)

Not familiar with the show, but great tji. Or was it just a moose?

I've actually never watched a whole episode either, but Wikipedia has synopses of them all. It's really funny how the pages for TV shows don't even try to be uniform. My personal "favourite" has long been the Veronica Mars page, which has an oversized critical reception section that used to consist entirely of gushing quotes in big bold text.

It's a moose. They're all moose.

I'm too young to remember the series properly, but I do connect Nimoy's voice with it, so yeah.

I can totally see Doohan sending special "regards" for Shatner and Nimoy simply "forgetting" to pass them along.

Sorry, Z, I'm wearing my anti-hint armor today. Clear directions will be required.

Please contact the Vatican and make them do this, too.

Putnam's Prairie Emporium? That show broke the fourth wall more than I do.

Er, yes. That's not the thing I meant, WHICH YOU SHOULD ALL IMMEDIATELY LOOK FOR BECAUSE SERIOUSLY ARRRGH, but I'm glad someone else had heard of that show. I looked it up out of curiosity a while ago and was startled to find that most of the episodes are currently lost -- one of the few modern shows that's happened to.

A few desultory guesses turned up nothing, and I was going to spin a few half-witted theories on an empty stomach, but then I engaged my very ovimorphic brain with eggtastic results.

I'm going to say #s 7, 20, and 54 are my favorites. But I giggled at a lot of them.

If you're going to be extra sneaky, you can't complain when it takes us a while randomly tab around the page.

Edit: It's all gone egg-shaped.
