Offscreen Momentof Awesome is the term for something which would have been very interesting, but which we don\'t get to see, as I understand it. Is the opposite, when something would be better left unseen and only alluded to, just \'broad strokes\'? Or is there a more precise term for something that should have been left on screen, or was satisfyingly left ofscreen?

I cut this out because it was put as a subhead under a reference to Heinlein's Puppet Masters. I think it refers to Clive Cussler's Sahara, but I haven't seen the movie or read the book. If someone wants to contextualize it and put it back, go for it.

  • Don't forget the entire "Abraham Lincoln was kidnapped and placed on a Confederate treasure ship that is now in the middle of the Sahara" subplot, which made some of the duller parts of the book worth reading.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
