  1. And what does “noir” mean here? “Black”?

  2. As in Film Noir. Or Detective Noir. It is a style of writing for old detective shows. Did you see the Next Generation Star Trek episodes were they are in the holo deck doing detective shows? That is Noir style.

  3. Or most any Bogart flick — “The Maltese Falcon” is pretty much the classic example. There’s also a good description of the style on Wikipedia:

    Pamela — glad you liked the carnival, thanks for the link & for giving me such good material to work with!

  4. Sigh. I knew I should have at least watched one sci-fi movie.

  5. Oh my! I need more hours in my day. That was nicely done.
