    Geez. People who can't separate a character from an actor. It's a really frustrating kind of stupid. Like all the hate and even assaults on that really good Aeris cosplayer because people just really hate Aeris.

    You should watch Eureka and Warehouse 13.

    Eureka isn't science fiction. Eureka is the Jack Carter and Henry Blake show.

    It used to be the Jack Carter, Nathan Stark and Henry Blake power hour.

    And either way, it's awesome as hell.

    He's probably super-conscientious about not being a dick in his day to day life. I mean, presumably you'd have to be - it's the type of character you'd really want to cast off after a take.

    Unless he's bitter from all the "normal" people that involuntarily scowl at him on the street.

    I'm just saying, I have no idea what the actor's name is, but if a friend said "Check it out! There's Joffrey!"
    Initial, reaction would be :x

    Of course it's science fiction. The show is about scientists and inventors making insane technology not wizards creating magic with their wands. Carter's the Badass Normal who has to save the town from whenever their technology malfunctions into homicidal death machines. Hank Pym better not move there. He might build something worse than Ultron. :shock:

    According to G.R.R. Martin himself, the actor is a super sweet kid.

    Plus he knows Batman so he can't be all that bad.

    That was a great detail. It made Abed's "We're not kids Jeff" line (or whatever it was) mean not that the imaginary hats didn't exist, but that the conflict was too great for the hats to overcome.

    Eureka was entertaining early on when it was more serious, and I did like the time travel episode with Balter, but everything is so silly now that you actually have an episode where you actually have Santa Claus as a physicist. Played by Chris Parnell. It's also very, very formulaic (The major experiment is just a red herring, the real cause of the problem is that smaller experiment that was mentioned in an off-hand comment and completely ignored). Another problem is that the physics isn't simply inaccurate from a physics standpoint, it's also completely counterintuitive and arbitrary.

    Again, Eureka isn't science fiction. The 'science' is magic, for all the sense it makes. The whole point of the show is that it's a lighthearted, disaster-of-the-week affair. It's a sweet show, meaning, warm, friendly. A nice hour to celebrate nerddom in general (yay nerds using their brains somehow to both create and solve nerdy problems!), watch Global Dynamics create some kind of off-the-wall problem, and see Jack Carter, Henry Blake, and Elisa Masa exchange banter and solve it all by minute 54.

    Sometimes it's okay to have the TV equivalent of potato chips.

    ---

    Regarding the 3DS ad, I think it carries on a bit too long. Specifically, it takes a while for it to get going. That said, yeah, it's funny seeing Joel playing a Jeff-like version of himself in the ad. I can't help but wonder how similar Joel is to Jeff. I don't know much about him outside of Community and The Soup.

    If you want to learn a little more about Joel, go to Hulu and watch 'A Day in the Life'. New episode is all about him, and shows him shooting The Soup and Community. They're actually shooting the final episode, which means it contains some HUGE SPOILERS! Which I am about to share. In the spoiler thing coming up.

    so finally saw last weeks episode of community after it was preempted by a baseball game going for 16 innings near where I'm at for school then being in constantly out and running around during break.

    Anyway... that was sublimely amazing. I don't even have anything productive to ad to quantify that statement.

    Eureka doesn't have to be extremely accurate with how science or physics works to be still be in the science fiction genre. There's not going to be a wizard showing up one day revealing all the geniuses are wizards. Many scientists are probably alphas, however.

    Jeff as Face, sure, but Pierce is obviously BA. He is always cranky, he snaps at people, he is prone to snarling, he talks nonsense, and in his pillow-monster form he is an unstoppable murder machine.

    My preference is for Abed as Hannibal and Troy as the reporter person who followed them around for a while. Chang is already Murdock.

    There's now another (older) angry Chevy voicemail out there. I'm not going to link to it, but I'm mentioning it because it's from March 2011, and it's Chevy making exactly the same complaints as the most recent interview/situation - the show is too much of a mediocre sitcom, it's not his kind of comedy, all of his stuff (which is what the people want and what is actually funny) is being edited out to focus on shit people don't care about, like story/plot and Jeff/Britta's relationship, etc. and he even makes a similar "if the show comes back, I won't be there" statement.

    The point being, if you're worried that this new incident was some sort of tipping point, no, this has been going on since at least before S3, and yet, Chevy came back.

    I can kind of see when things are specifically Chevy driven things that the show lets him do.

    For instance, that tag recently with Pierce and the soft serve machine? That's Chevy's standard physical comedy stuff, the same with having trouble eating the chicken fingers, or even the hot dog scene in the pilot episode.
