    @ Cat Vincent

    We knew Osama bin Laden's name and approximately where he was. It still took us nine years to find him. David Robert Jones seems to be written as being considerably smarter than Osama.

    I assume they didn't just kill the Cortexiphan kids because they might still have a conscience? Walter & the rest of the Fringe team don't seem comfortable with "acceptable losses". It might make sense on paper, but it doesn't make for relatable TV characters.

    @stoto: I watched one of those Louis Theroux documentaries...it scared the shit out of me! I used to work as a care-attendant with the elderly in a rough NHS home, and I saw a few things that were well upsetting.

    Oh yeah, so I'm about midway through Season 2 of Deadwood, and I normally swear a lot. Now I fucking cuss a whole fucking lot, thanks to all you fucking cocksuckers.

    @government spy: Something about that show makes you want to talk like the characters in it. I often address people as either:

    A: San Francisco cocksucker.

    B: Loopy cunt.

    C: Leon, Leon, Leon.

    Edit to add: I normally say C to a bloke called...Leon. The other 2, random people.

    Today I told an inmate that I would drag him to his cell by his ear. He knew I was (mostly) joking, but I felt like i was channeling Bullock for a moment.

    Sometimes you just need a symphony of chronological cocksuckers:

    @Cat Vincent:

    Minor quibble: the Cortexiphan kids are only on one side, connecting with their counterparts on side two. Also, they'd have to actually find all of them. I don't know if being on a different side would make a difference, as they still vibrate at their own universe's frequency. As for killing them... I don't think the writers would have been willing to have the Fringe team do that.

    @flecky Yeah, it must get quite surreal living/working with people with dementia. I thought the dentist's wife had it pretty bad.

    I think this season might be Mad Men's best yet.

    I've watched all the episodes of Downton Abbey to date, and am one episode away from finishing off Avatar: The Last Airbender..

    Shit, I watched Embarrassing Bodies on 4. If you can get through that show without laughing from horror, and not curl up from the fear of being just flesh, then you are a tough bastard. My respect for doctors who work with genital mutations has just increased.

    Mad Men, "At The Codfish Ball", had more stuff going on and going down* than some series get around to all year. I mean, damn.

    Was Sally's little friend, the weird boy from the old neighborhood, in military school or reform school or something? Did he get caught for that vandalism? It's been so long since last season . . .


    *And, uh, going down on, heh-heh-heh.
