Thanks For The Repeats

Yes I've been so dang busy with these classes that I can't watch all the TV I'm use to.

Luckily the Olympics cured that problem. I didn't watch any of the Olympics and all the networks decided to show repeats so plenty of time to graph paraboloids and find gradients, wooo-hooo!

Here's an easy little plot z2 = (x2 + y2 )/ 9 and y2 + z2 = 1
This one is simple and took less then a minute soon and it is only getting more complicated. Soon there will be AutoCAD and projects and no more repeats on TV.

Overall kind of weak this season. They're repeating it tonight.

Sci-Fi Friday: Stragate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Battlestar Galactica
The last two are fine but the original Stargate SG-1 is still struggling without Jack.

Drawn Together
Has been one of the few funny things on TV.

Stephen King's Desperation has finally been given an air date but I still don't think it's solid so I'll wait.

Well if I don't write again soon I wish you all good day and have fun. Remember it's just TV, great and wonderful TV.

Super Late Week In Review

First off tomorrow is Single Awareness Day also known as Valentine's Day for couples. If you get some good for you.

Now I've been doing a 9 to 5, 5-day a week class schedule so here are my late reviews.

Surface: Episode 15
The season finale, maybe series finale, picks up with Rich being detained at Iderex(secret creepy lab) where he sees an image of Jackson on a computer screen that says "Sector 1019 Chief", whoa Jackson was working with Iderex.
Meanwhile Miles and family are preaparing to leave while his girlfriend is sent ahead alone. The family makes it to the ferry but the girlfriend gets scooter robbed and knocked out close to Miles' home.
Rich manages not to get killed and uses a cell phone to make his goodbyes.
Miles realizes that his girl is in trouble and jumps ship to find her. At his home he finds his girl and they watch the devastion in Puerto Rico. On th TV they see giant creatures that look like floating debris in the water when suddenly one of them eats the reporter. They know the tsunami is about to hit and drive away.
Laura rescues Rich and the duo make there way to the streets and flag down a car driven by Miles.
Finally all the main characters meet.
Rich takes over driving and the him and Laura meet Nim, there is only time for a quick explanation because the car goes dead as the wave breaks shore. They all run to a church and go up to the steeple as the water rises and medium size sea monsters are looking for human-snacks.
Laura then comments "It's a new world." while looking over a flooded city.
Great show bring it back for a second season!

Scrubs: My Buddy's Booty/Cabbage
Getting a bit cartoonish but having Sarah Chalke and Mandy Moore making out was cool.

Drawn Together
Sick show and cool moments making fun of other cartoons.

Grey's Anatomy: As We Know It
The conclusion from last week when EMT Hannah stuck her hand in a chest to stop the bleeding then panicked and ran away causes Dr. Grey too stupidly stick her hand for the same weak reason. Oh yeah at the same time there is bazooka shell in the man's chest.
Dr. Grey does pull it out and hand it to bomb squad guy(Kyle Chandler of Early Edition fame) when he suddenly blows up into blue mist.Another cool scene was when Dr. O'Malley dream of having all the ladies taking a shower together came true. Unfortunately it was not sexy instead they were washing the pieces of cop off of Dr. Grey.

Late Week In Review

Damn the immigrants(all non-NYers) in the subway, they spread their diseases and got me sick.
But I'm back and will do a quick run through of last weeks events starting withe best show on TV SURFACE.

Surface: Episode 14
This was a great episode. Rich is having some odd nightmares that make him the bad guy.
Meanwhile the creatures are off the coast of Puerto Rico at the Caribbean Plate digging and cracking through the Earths mantle.
[ Let me drop some science here. One of the deepest trenches in the world is the Puerto Rican trench and it is highly unstable, for years scientist said if a major earthquake ever hit Puerto Rico the entire island could fall into the trench. Also Puerto Rico is part of the United States.]
Rich and Laura set up a trap for Agent Lee and tell him that he is a clone of the original "Lee". Lee doesn't seem to be all clued in so Rich knocks some sense into him, all Leee reveals is that the release of the creatures is not an accident.
Laura leaves Rich to see her kid and gets taken by Lee but not killed. Rich bust into Iderex, a company that Lee deals with. Rich finds canisters containing two of every animal on Earth and a huge facility that is preparing for something big.
Miles sister calls her boyfriend an asshole but it comes out butt wipe. Miles frys the boyfriend during a fight. The police come to get Miles but a mob of parents take him instead. Right before the mob lynches Miles the sheriff informs them a tsunami is heading there way and it already killed 10,000 people in San Jaun, Puerto Rico.
Great episode in everyway. Just one more to go.

TV Guide: Jan. 30-Feb. 5
On the cover Grey's Anatomy and stars Justin Chambers & Katherine Heigl. A four page article talks about their after Superbowl episode. Chambers, Alex on the show, has five kids with his wife Keisha. Heigl is dating singer Josh Kelley.
As usual the subscription copy is slightly different from the on stand issue.
Good Things To Read Inside:

  • Eamonn Walker of Oz fame will be on ER.
  • A new Superman: The Animated Series special is being made.
  • Faison and Braff are as close in real life.
  • Arrested Development's last 4 episodes will be back to back against the Winter Olympics opening ceremony on February 10.
  • I hate Rochell D. Thomas' column Is It Just Me? but then again it could just be me.
Oprah: Dave Chappelle Interview
What Dave said: I was stressed and getting bad advice.
What Dave meant: The white man is working to destroy me and all other rich black people.
What Oprah said: You sound like at the time you were crazy.
What Oprah meant: You are still crazy and you will be back on my show when you realize there is no conspiracy.

On a side note Ben Stiller and Robin Williams just finished filming scenes of A Night at the Museum in the American Museum of Natural History, unfortunately I could not get pictures of the set. Apparently they are using CGI not puppets to make the animals come to life.
