I dunno. I don’t watch Breaking Bad. Cue Internet gasps.
EDIT from Salomé: It was an M60, as far as I could tell.
Me while you’re liveblogging Breaking Bad.
Here’s an image from one of our favourite episodes of Star Trek: TNG. It’s called Elementary, dear Data. You can see that while on a Holodeck adventure with his buddy, Geordi, Data engages in a little roleplay as Sherlock Holmes.
Calm down! I can’t hear you over the uproar about this not being canon and how OUTRAGEOUS it is that the world’s only and greatest consulting detective would be played by an Artificially Intelligent MACHINE.
So can everybody please STFU about Lucy Lui playing Watson in Elementary and how it’s WRONG? Because obviously, it’s not WRONG if an ANDROID from the FUTURE can play Sherlock, but oh my, no! Not a LADY playing Watson!
Look, Elementary is just a dumb show on CBS that probably won’t be very good, but we’ll be watching it, because it’s Lucy Lui and she’s awesome and will probably be the best thing about the whole endeavor.
This is after Jon mentions that Obama struts down “I killed bin Laden Way.” Which is true. No one on the corner got swagger like Obama!
Congratulations on your universal health care, America! Nobody can say you didn’t earn it or deserve it. I hope every single one of the idiots who opposed it find it useful and practical.
We here at Boob Tube are particularly pleased because half of our blogging team is an American.
ROCK, FLAG, UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE, EAGLE!!!!
Is there a question in this?
Who was that taking Emily away?
So she wasn't in trouble?
So why did they take her away?
She was working undercover. When you're working undercover and they do the bust, they don't go, "Okay, everyone's under arrest--except for you, Joe! Everyone, let's hear it for Joe! *applause* He was working undercover, by the way, in case anyone didn't know..."
I watched the “making of” doc after the premier of the Newsroom and he says they hired Dev Patel for a very small character part and were surprised when he brought it and “made us want to write more for him.”
Um, outside of Jeff Daniels and Sam Waterston, Patel’s is arguably the most famous face in the pilot. I mean, let me get this straight, Sorkin, you’re SURPRISED that an actor who carried an Oscar-winning film was able to act good?
Here’s a question for you: why couldn’t Dev Patel play one of Alison Pill’s two potential love interests? He’s young and handsome. Way more handsome than the slobby dude she’s currently with, and way more interesting than amazing-source-guy Jim, who happens to look adorably unkempt, kind of like his namesake from The Office. Why is Dev Patel relegated to being the dude Jeff Daniels mistakes for the IT guy? Oh, right. He’s Indian.
Das racist, Sorkin.
