The Gush...and a bit of Rant (not really)


Having read the first in the series, I knew to expect stories of episodes in no particular order and some that were quite different from the finished product. This is one of the main reasons I like these books, as you can see an early version as well as remember what the finished product looks like. Would not advise reading a story if you've never seen the corresponding episode.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this book. I grew up on this series, though I only watched what was on tv on reruns. All of these particular episodes are ones I was previously very familiar with. Surprisingly, that was not needed. These short write ups of the episodes are at once familiar and not. I had read somewhere that these were sometimes written up from early versions of the scripts and that does show. Some of the stories end slightly differently or have whole sections that are not there. Coming at it from a different angle helped further illustrate the idea behind the episode or made we look at it from another viewpoint. Very interesting.
