Prolepsis on TV

On the D.C. Fox affiliate Channel 20 this weekend, we spotted a broadcast of the 2005 flick, “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”

Not such a good movie, but the words of advice on the book’s cover were timely in advance this week’s fiscal crisis: Don’t Panic!

Perhaps TV execs will start to feature it on a regular basis,  just as ABC rebroadcasts “Enemy of the State” every time a surveillance issue heats up in Congress.
