Stuck In The Middle
- Jan 2, 2018
In addition to making direct reference to the University of Texas shooting in 1966 which involved a gunman in the school's clock tower, there is a scene in "Earshot" that is quite creepy in retrospect. In the scene in the newspaper office there is what seems like a brief, throw-away discussion about school killings, particularly shootings, becoming more prevelant in the States and Oz saying that it is "bordering on trendy". "Earshot" first aired on April 21st, 1999. The day after the Columbine shootings. A situation which saw the editors at Vertigo pull a Hellblazer storyline written by Warren Ellis called Shoot. Apparently the program directors at the WB had no such qualms.
