Dai made me watch the show.

January 1865 Good Guys want to make a law to abolish slavery and do political shenanigans.

Dai is always whingeing that in his Platonic State their will be no shenanigans because the Holy Inquisition will round up the dissidents.

I say shenanigans are inevitable, therefore it would be nice if the Good Guys knew how to do it.


Lincoln keeps telling rustic country stories. Near the end, Minister has had enough and storms off. Lincoln tells the tale anyway.

After USA REV, peace talks UK v USA. Ethan Allen a Patriot general visits an English aristo. Aristo has a cgp (cunning plan) to insult Ethan, a portrait of George Washington in the privy.
Aristo Mwah hah hah, did you see the portrait in the privy?
Ethan: An excellent place for it. When an Englishman needs to shit, the sight of George Washington ....

" In Jules Verne's 1870 novel, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, a fictitious steam frigate, the Abraham Lincoln, is sent to hunt down the "monster" that has been attacking ships at sea, and is attacked itself. Captain Nemo also has a portrait of Lincoln hanging in his study on board the Nautilus. In the prequel The Mysterious Island, the five shipwrecked Union prisoners name the island which they discover, "Lincoln Island". ... "

" The first known motion picture based on Mr. Lincoln was 1908 film The Reprieve: An Episode in the Life of Abraham Lincoln. Directed by Van Dyke Brooke, the film shows Lincoln pardoning a sentry who fell asleep on duty, a theme that would be depicted repeatedly in other silent era shorts. This era is also when the first Abraham Lincoln impersonators originated, and the modern idea of what he sounded like is derived from these, much like the oral traditions of African folklore. ... "

" In 1925, DeForest produced a Phonofilm, Memories of Lincoln, with 91-year-old Chauncey Depew giving his recollections of meeting Lincoln in person. ... "

" Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, a show created by Walt Disney Imagineering featuring an Audio-Animatronic Lincoln, appears at the 1964 World's Fair. The next year, the show debuted at Disneyland in California. Lincoln's voice is provided by Royal Dano. ... "

" "The Chase", episode 2.8 of Doctor Who, which aired in 1964, included Robert Marsden as Honest Abe ... "

" The Time Tunnel (1966) Doug and Tony meet Abraham Lincoln (Ford Rainey)

" In the 1967 independent film In The Woods, Lincoln's ghost has a duel with The ghost of Nathan Bedford Forrest. He then shoots Forrest saying "To hell with the CSA" ... "

" Star Trek: The Original Series 1969 episode "The Savage Curtain" (3.22), where an alien creates an image of Lincoln to represent "Good" in a Good vs. Evil experiment. Played by actor Lee Bergere, Old Abe was one of Captain Kirk's heroes growing up in the 23rd century. ... "

" In "Sex and Violence", a 1975 pilot for The Muppet Show, an Abraham Lincoln Muppet ( performed by John Lovelady ) appears as part of the Muppet version of Mount Rushmore. ... "

" In the sketch comedy series SCTV Network 90, Joe Flaherty plays a time-traveler Lincoln going to the past to chase the child John Wilkes Booth through time with a gun to prevent his assassination, repeatedly failing attempts to kill Booth. Catherine O'Hara plays Mrs. Lincoln who asks her time traveler husband where her future is to lead her. When he casually responds "in an insane asylum," she proclaims her foresight ability, responding "I knew it!" ... "

" In Harry Turtledove's alternate history novel How Few Remain , part of the Southern Victory Series, Lincoln is a viewpoint character. He serves as President for one term from 1861 to 1865, where he saw the Confederate States win their independence during the War of Succession. He loses the 1864 election in a landslide. Feeling that the Republican Party was no longer true to its original roots, Lincoln leads a left-wing fraction of Republicans into the Socialist Party in 1882 during the Second Mexican War. The Socialists soon replace the Republicans as the primary opposition to the Democrats, which absorb most of the right-wing Republicans. Despite this, the Republican Party survives, but as a central third party. Mr. Lincoln himself is referred to in later novels in the series as the father of American socialism, as his eloquence and political influence after leaving office. ... "

" etc " - apparently SKY-PIE writers just love messing with the idea of " Abraham Lincoln " - and there are a lot more being described on that wikipedia page ...
