Re: Castle

Well, I don't want to spoil the fun in case you chance to see it via streaming on ABC's website, but suffice it to say that Castle and Beckett take some serious steps towards bringing their relationship to the next level... Just watch it, really. It's got Nathan Fillion at his best (with flashes of ...

Re: Castle

Just to say that this week's episode was all sorts of amazing. And it goes to show that there are more ways to win a woman's affections and respect than bowling her over with physical charm (though in some cases it can't be harmful, especially if said woman does not protest too much). Cheers, Eloise...

Re: A couple of interesting articles...

About the recent pick-up of the Wonder Woman series by NBC:

I really hope that the show's producers will read that article! And I totally agree with their suggestion for the title character, too...

Re: Castle

Just to say that this week's Castle was made of everything awesome. It was an episode about a reseacher at SETI found dead by decompression, and it was full of X-File-ish references. But what truly made my night was that, in a Chinese warehouse, when Beckett failed to negociate with the workers, Cas...

Re: A couple of interesting articles...

... and for the sake of argument, another one about women's instruction: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/20/opinion/20dowd.html?_r=1&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss Notwithstanding any political leanings, it does tell a lot about the atomization of knowledge in our society. And much as I like the phot...

Great minds think alike, apparently! I think that the invitation to the ex-wife/editor was extended more for business than pleasure, but that Castle and her have kept a good enough rapport (he respects women too much for it to be otherwise). Still, I give it a couple of weeks (tops) before the naggi...

NYTimes Op-Ed: The Aliens Among Us

I just found this article:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/14/opini ... ef=opinion

Could our resident biologist tell us if Mr. Davies' hypothesis is viable? If so, it would open all kinds of interesting avenues for ET life as well...

When Worf embarks on a journey of discovery...

I kid you not. You can have more details here.

Space: the final frontier. These are the objectives of the I.S.S.' enterprise. Its ongoing mission: to develop strange new experiments, to understand life and the galaxy, to boldly go where no man has gone before.

Cheers,

I enjoyed the double episode with Dana Delany -- it's good to have another woman detective (and a formidable one) in that sea of men! In the words of Dana Delany herself : Regarding her character of Jordan Shaw, Dana said: "She’s there as an example to show Beckett that you actually can have i...

Slightly off-topic, but since we are talking of ancient history... I recently purchased the book The Horse, the Wheel and Language: How Bronze-Age Riders form the Eurasian Steppes Shaped the Modern World by David W. Anthony (Princeton U. Press), in which he gives his own theory about who the proto-I...

And it's been picked up for another full season.

So, barring any monumental catastrophes, we will have 22 more episodes of Nathan Fillion goodness to watch. Such a hardship, isn't it...

Cheers,

Apparently, the NASA has created the first-ever tricorder. For more info, head here and there . We're not quite at the medical diagnosis scan level yet, but it's just nifty all the same.
