While watching "Space Mutiny" in the recent Turkey Day lineup, I noticed that, like all the other times I've seen "Space Mutiny", one of the characters said the word "scanty".

I'm not sure, but I'm guessing that this *tends* to indicate a movie of the not-so-good type. Has anyone found any movies that might be considered *good*, even with the use of said word?

(In this case, the main effect of it was to make me want to mount an INTERVENTION, but I guess unless a time machine becomes available, that's not too feasible :-)).

Honestly, Doug. Do you even remember where you *put* the "Intervention" banner?

Oh, hey, I wondered where I'd left this.
