Tim Minear’s “The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress” Script

Apparently back in 2004 Tim Minear, an important writer on a bunch of television shows including (I don’t know if you’ve heard of any of these) The X-Files, Angel, Firefly, and Wonderfalls, was hired to write a screenplay based on Robert A. Heinlein’s book The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress. This is probably one of my top-five favorite books. And how is Minear’s take on it?

Glorious.

It’s surprisingly faithful to the source material, and the places where it does differ are at once shocking and highly (in one instance devastatingly) effective. But don’t take my word for it! A copy of the script has found its way online as a .pdf! So instead of reading this post, you should go read Tim Minear’s “The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress” Script
