Thanks to the unusual nature of my day job, I have to monitor local television stations to keep abreast of weather or disaster situations, which usually means that I watch a local morning show.  Lately, we’ve been stuck on the CBS affiliate (mostly because NBC’s lineup national lineup has become so very annoying), but even that isn’t a sure thing to avoid cringey, terrible or unwatchable moments.  I’d much rather see Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers in the morning, with Bucky Barnes handling sports and Tony Stark in the Action Weather Lab which is actually his old gold armor with a thermometer on top.  If nothing else, it’d be entertaining, leading to today’s so-early-it’s-actually-late yesterday query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) also thinks that Mal and Inara would make a great morning team, with Hoban Washburn’s Skywatch Forecast indicating spears, asking: What fictional assemblage or pairing would you be most likely to tune in and watch as a morning show team?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Rachael Murphy on

    I think Hal Jordan for the science reporting what with him having to have an imagination for his Super Hero night job.
    For the main desk jockeys, Felicity Smoak and Barry Allen. They have quirky fun personalities that pair well together.
    Sports should definitely be Bain and Killer Croc. I’d watch those two fight over Lakers v Celtics any day.
