Chris Hadfield memoir to become ABC sitcom


Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is a rock star among geeks. His cover version of the David Bowie song “Space Oddity” has been viewed more than 22 million times on YouTube.


Those are numbers that ABC’s reality show The Bachelor could only dream of matching. So should we be surprised that the American broadcaster wants to make a sitcom out of Hadfield’s life?


An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth will be based on Hadfield’s 2013 memoir, according to a report by Deadline.


The series is described as “a family comedy about an astronaut who is back from space and finds that re-entering domestic life might be the hardest mission he’s ever faced.”


Hadfield was the first Canadian commander of a space mission and spent five months aboard the International Space Station.


He became an Internet sensation with his YouTube videos from the space, which include quirky experiments such as “Crying in Space” (1.3 million views), “How to Wash Your Hair in Space” (1.1 million views) and “How To Make a Peanut Butter Sandwich in Space” (strangely, only 714,000 views).


Anyone of those videos would be worthy of a sitcom in itself, which likely peaked the interest of Hollywood.

Margaery and Sansa as Hades and Persephone (insp. by x

Persephone was gathering flowers one day on a plain in Sicily. Hades suddenly appeared, thundering across the plain in her four-horse chariot. The goddess swooped down upon Persephone, scooped her up with one arm, and literally and figuratively deflowered her—leaving the plain scattered with blossoms of every colour.

The militarization of police in the US in recent decades has me thinking about this quote from Battlestar Galactica.



…a woman named Maddie. The woman she loved. I never met her, but I saw her name everywhere. She was from Harvard. Yacht racing team. There were plaques and trophies in the lake house from all the regattas she’d won.
