“Comrade, in your own words, explain to us the history and function of the Aristophanes Span.”

You read that title correctly. We couldn’t make this stuff up if we tried, and luckily we don’t have to. For those of you who don’t watch the AMC show, let us sum up this “Mad Men” recap for you.
Kenny Cosgrove, a science fiction novelist under the pen name of Ben Hargrove, hides his passion from his everyday advertising world until his wife reveals his secret. During a dinner party, she again spills too much when she tells everyone the plot of one of Cosgrove’s stories, “The Punishment of X4.” In short, a robot collapses a bridge between two planets that humans use to travel daily. It’s as amazing as it sounds.
“Lost” writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof began tweeting hilarious lines from the fictional novel. “The solution seemed obvious… create a commuter colony that would work on Nephytus, but live on Aton,” he wrote. Do you think if we create a Twitition he’ll write the whole book?
