First let me say that I'm a different John Baker than the one who's posted on this list previously. It seems to me that "Slither" had very, VERY little to do with the "alternate universe" theory. The whole thing with the snakes could have been a drama/horror story written for any old show. The only pertient references to sliding and the like look as if they were written in over an old script. For example, the story wouldn't have been any different if it were placed in Columbia and the cocaine cartels (rather than the tobacco cartels). As for wishing to catch the plane to get back before the slide, gee whiz, I wouldn't want to be stuck in some Latin American country when I have to, say, go to school the next week. If we're going to have this whole "alternate universe" stuff, then let's take advantage of it. Missing the Professor, John

Can I offer a bit of advice? You might want to post under a nick. Otherwise, one of the John Bakers might annoy someone, and the other guy will probably take the heat. Your choice- just a suggestion from someone who has seen this happen on Usenet. It happened to me and I had to permanently change my nick. {{SNIP}} > > If we're going to have this whole "alternate universe" stuff, then let's > take advantage of it. > > Missing the Professor, > > John > Write to FOX and tell them what you think.
