The ANGLERPOD is watching TV.
The Anglerpod is a strange creature. You could call him odd, I suppose, but he’s not really that. More misunderstood. You see, The Anglerpod became bored with living on his home planet, and he longed to live someplace else. So he traveled to earth, and he liked it there. So he stayed. And he lived there happily for some time, seeing creatures similar to him, like the cave mites. Who let him stay in their cave. Very kind of them.
EXT. HILL WITH LAMPPOST. NIGHT.
But then it happened. And everything became dark. Luckily for the Anglerpod, he had his light, and he could see. But he soon longed for other light, having been quite enamored with the sun. He soon found the lamppost, whom he struck up a friendship with. He went to see her every day, with his hat on and smoking his cigar. They didn’t talk to each other, they didn’t need to. They understood each other. The Anglerpod was happy. The lamppost was too, from what the Anglerpod could gather.
The lamppost light flickers.
But then one day…
The lamppost light burns out.
The lamppost died. And the Anglerpod was lonely again.
The Anglerpod cries a single tear...and walks back down the hill.
The Anglerpod went back to his cave. He tried to be friends with the television, but it kept talking to him in a language he didn’t understand. He tried making friends with the cave mites, but they told him his light was too bright. And because the Anglerpod is a very considerate creature, he stayed away from them. And that was that. So the Anglerpod sits alone in his cave, staying a safe distance away from the cave mites and listening in wonder to the television’s strange words. He waits for something….but he doesn’t know what.
