A series of prose vignettes, each based on a "classic" 60's TV series (Gilligan's Island, Twilight Zone, Hogan's Heros). Each one is as inspiring & deeply philosophic as their mass-culture predecessors. In the Get Smart episode, Max & Agent 99 are called in to fight a new, more depraved chapter of K.A.O.S.: L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E. Agent 99 draws out the villains by reciting work by Sylvia Plath & Robert Penn Warren at a poetry reading--once the evil-doers are identified by their hysteric reaction, they're rounded up, while Max & 99 go back to the apartment and do what we all knew they did but never saw. Great.--luigi
