Saving TPH the typing -- Yes, the "Tales From" question was way, way undervalued at $400. It's polling 6%. I don't know what they were thinking on that one.
Funny thing is, I went into Amazon yesterday to watch the most recent episode of The Expanse and guess what show was sitting two rows down ...?
