    Seems like all I do is complain nowadays, but does Brian Brown have to yell so much? I’m blaming him for my loss of hearing :)

    Thanks for the Eddie interview. The episode he mentioned, “Burnout”, was by far the best episode of the series. Which was good because they took a huge step backward with “Elements” – but recovered nicely.

    “Burnout” really brought in strong character development & peril for Pete and Myka, and finally made me care about what happened to them – which is where the show needs to continue to go.

    But, if the following episodes are like “Burnout” then the series will be quite good.

    Hummm…. Well you are right, it was a Guinea Pig, but we were not the only ones that got that wrong. Until I saw it again, it was a rat in my mind.

    Here’s the clip for those that don’t remember.

    Thanks so much for the shout out! I <3 Brian Brown.

    I’m going to be one of the folks that agree with Stephen Sommers. Honestly I think TV/Movie critics for the most part should be shoved out of existence. They offer no value to movies any more with the rapid pace of communication being as it is.

    Also, I guess I’m one of those rare people who really enjoyed G.I. Joe. It has a storyline that was followable, twisty and made sense in the world it was created in (unlike the last Transformers movie) and the action and special effects were fantastic. Was it a movie on par with something like Casablanca? No. But for a summer movie, this one has to come in second after Star Trek in my book.
