Brown Kung-Fu Muppets

A girl who has never actually seen Star Wars pieces together the entire plot with the bits and pieces she does know. It's an amazing bit of narrative.

A couple of months ago I tried to explain the first episode of "Heroes" to a friend without putting any spoilers in. I find explaining movies I have seen to friends who have not very difficult, but that might be partly the "fault" of the kind of movies I like (try to explain "Kontroll" to someone who hasn't seen it: well, there's this guy, but he's more like an otherworldly creature, and he throws people in front of the subway. Right, it's about a group of people who check tickets on the subway in Budapest. And the main character is this one guy who never really leaves, he sleeps down there. And the escalators only go down, never up. And there's this girl in a bearsuit) It adds a special edge to the task if the person you explain something to has no interest in Sci-Fi and Fantasy ("So where and when exactly IS Middle-Earth?")
