Burning Sci Fi Questions

Science fiction and fantasy is all about the BIG questions. Who are we? Why are here? How did Andromeda keep getting recommissioned? Those are perhaps unanswerable, but here we try to respond to some of SF and fantasy most burning posers:

"Who is Number One?"
The Prisoner
Answer: Well, it’s Number Six in a monkey mask, of course. Glad we cleared that up. Obvious really, wasn't it?

"Am I mad, in a coma, or back in time?"
Life On Mars
Answer:" F**k knows, and we’ve seen the last episode.

"Who killed Laura Palmer?"
Twin Peaks
Answer: Her dad, Leland Palmer. But it wasn't his fault, he was being possessed by Evil Bob at the time.

Watchman
