Red Right Hand: I SHOULD BE PAID FOR THE SHILLING THAT FOLLOWS...

I SHOULD BE PAID FOR THE SHILLING THAT FOLLOWS...

Think of it like a public service announcement.

Yeah, TV spec'ers are always trying to track down a copy of the best and latest scripts for whatever it is we're in the midst of spec'ing, but let us not forget that which has gone before.

Sure, there's the excellent West Wing script books by Aaron Sorkin (which, by the way, Studio 60 has been moved out of the path of CSI and Grey's Anatomy to Mondays at 10/9c and Medium takes the midseason on Sundays). There's also the Freaks and Geeks volumes. Then there's the Buffy The Vampire Slayer scriptbooks which compile the first two and a half seasons in 8 volumes (and there's a special volume for the musical episode).

If you're on a budget, how about an Angel script by Joss Whedon for about four bones. Comics publisher IDW is putting out select scripts from the series, super cheap. I have to credit the collection-obsessive nature of hardcore Buffy fans. Sometimes they're willingness to buy anything with the right logo on it occasionally benefits others.

This, of course, means you will have to go into a comics store. There's some nice ones around, they'll help you out.

And since you're going to be in there, let me suggest something. It's called Fell. It's hardboiled crime with a little bit of weird. Grab an issue. Any issue, it doesn't matter. They're all done in one and they're two bucks. You can afford two miserable dollars.

Just do what I fucking tell you.
