    OK, a 2 part question for episode 500 for both of y’all:

    1) name 2-3 sf works (any media) that are currently considered classics that you feel confident will still be considered classics in 100 years. Explain.

    2) name 2-3 sf works too recent to be considered classics yet that will be
    considered classic in 100 years also. Defend your choices.

    Thanks again guys!

    Obviously, I need to listen and remember better. 🙂

    How about this instead: Are fractional ratings really useful in a 5 star rating system? If the system starts at one star, half stars give us nine possible ratings for any given work. Do we really need that level of granularity? Terrible, poor, mediocre, good and excellent aren’t enough for us? Do we really need a 3 and a half star rating for “almost good?” Do we need a 2 and a half star rating for “almost mediocre?” It strikes me as unnecessary hair-splitting, and I think half-stars often are a way for the reviewer to say “I wish this work fit into the next higher category, but it doesn’t. ” Hence the tendency of the last 4 Star Wars films to get 2.5 and 3.5 star reviews.

    Am I missing something here? What say you gentlemen?
