30 Days Of Adam Adamant #8

15. Something that made you happy

I suspect that it would be something involving a swordfight. Yes, I know. Astonishment.

16. Something that made you sad

The fact that some git assassinated a whole lot of it.

17. Something that made you think

The whole premise is worth a thought. What would it be like to wake up in a different era? Adam was only asleep for some sixty-five years, but the early part of the twentieth century was a time of great change, so the world had moved on a great deal. 1966, the year in which he woke up, is nearly as far away now as the turn of the century was when the show first aired. Somebody from 1966 waking up now probably wouldn't suffer as much dislocation as Adam did, although the advancement of technology would take some adjusting to. Were Adam to wake up now instead, I don't think his modern day Georgina Jones would be quite so inclined to put up with his sexism, but in many ways his situation would be no different to how it was in 1966. All those big social changes happened in the first seventy or so years of the twentieth century; equality, permissiveness, health, housing, education, the decline of religion as a major factor in people's lives. So I don't think that Adam in 2014 would be majorly more jet-lagged than Adam in 1966. Might be fun seeing his reaction to Miley Cyrus, though...

18. Something that made you laugh

Every time Adam encounters a female crook. "But madam! You are a lady!" His disappointment with women who misbehave is brilliantly ridiculous.

It's either that, or work on persuading the aliens to record the transmissions as they reach them. But even then we probably need a time machine for delivery...

Yes, it's a brilliant concept, isn't it, but the execution needs work! We haven't even found the aliens yet, let alone established contact, and thrashed out a trade deal. How hard can it be, for goodness sakes?! You'd think that space was really big or something...
