RANDOM FACTS ABOUT THIS YEAR’S LIST:

  • The Top Voted script received 119 mentions (about 1/4 of all voters chose it).
  • The Cover of this year’s list is made up of our ten favorite lines from the top 10 scripts (can you tell which is which?).
  • Two of the top 10 voted scripts revolve around time travel (at least in this timeline).
  • This year’s list is available in both PDF, and PDF Interactive (which works amazingly on your iPad or tablet). PDF interactive makes every spec title clickable, to instantly navigate you to the original spec listings, which often details the “as it happens” up to the minute details each of these scripts lived as they entered the market. (While the PDF interactive is available to download for everyone, the features are only available to members).
