Doctor Zachary Smith is either fashionably late in toasting the new year of 2014, or he's just a tad confused -- having been "lost in space" (no capital letters) since 1997.
Either way, I think we can forgive him and hope that by now, after what would soon be about 17 years "out there", he's managed to find the way back to his cherished Earth -- and that his homecoming didn't turn out like THIS!
I've got it!
The (Ahem!) "good" doctor's just toasting the first day of 2014 in which the New York area (and presumably the Northeast as a whole) was spared either snow or below-freezing temperatures!
I'll drink to that one too, "Zack!"
Now, in this scene resembling Friday, January 03, 2014, can anyone explain to my satisfaction how the shovel got to be where it is?
...Anyone, at all? Huh?
