While desperately searching for the next question, writer Paul O’Paulsky stumbled upon an answer. This weekend viewers of Ambigous Situation will find themselves in a slightly reduced state of bewilderment after they see the newest episode.
“I guess it had to happen eventually,” O’Paulsky said in a packed press conference. “We had so many loose ends flying around that when trying to write a new one, I accidentally wrote in some continuity.”
Network chief Milkit Ahlot played down the incident. “This doesn’t diminish our ability to string out the show much longer than necessary. We will still be able to bleed its originality dry before we have to cancel. We aren’t in danger of doing a ‘Battlestar Galactica’ and plugging the plot holes. Shareholders have nothing to worry about.”
It remains to be seen whether or not the viewing public will stand for such shenanigans however. Unwelcome and unexpected elements of shows, such as referencing past events, have been known to upset the audience. Ambiguous Situation and especially lead characted Captain Standard will need to get back to their hard-hitting mundanity sooner rather than later or their 24th season could be their last.
