“The proof-of-concept drama, which used a computer-generated voice for one of the characters, could adapt on the fly according to data pulled from external sources.
For instance, it could make reference to local places which would differ depending on where in the world you were.”
ARE WE IN THE FUTURE ALREADY??
I need a new sci-fi/mystery/fantasy show. Any suggestions?
You don’t understand, I NEEDthis
Firefly, Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis, Star Trek (any of them but i love Next Generation and Voyager), Merlin, Farscape, Defiance, Eureka, Warehouse 13.
That’s a preeeeetty thorough list for a lot of the big ones.
Torchwood, Brimstone, Red Dwarf, Battlestar Galactica, Being Human, Teen Wolf, Primeval.
Let’s not forget Buffy. :D 2011 Teen wolf is pretty good too, and I’m seconding Being Human because it’s a good mix of all three genres you listed, plus it’s also pretty amazing. (I’m referring to the UK series, I have no idea what the US one is like). Oldies but goodies are Quantum Leap and Babylon 5, and if you’re into underwater stuff Seaquest DSV is pretty great, if a little dry at times (heheh). True Blood is fantastic, but you have to be into vampires for that one, I think.

I think I’m in love with Jolyn
Why did i think watching Torchwood Children of earth was a good idea?
I thought watching torchwood would be great distraction in till the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, but after i watched “Children of Earth” Oh god if have been on a ride made from feeling’s and a one way ticket to depressed land.
I Think it broke me.
I watched it over a year ago and STILL COMPLETELY BROKEN SADDEST TELEVISION MINISERIES OF MY WHOLE DAMN LIFE. UGH.
Anything 456 or Ianto related just makes me SAD now.
Watching Torchwood is a good way to spend the time during the Doctor Who hiatus. Nobody said that time would be full of butterflies and rainbows.
(More like full of PAIN AND SADNESS.)
Yay Children of Earth, what a happy cheery story! :D
You should try Miracle Day next, it’s just as happy and cheery, if not more.
Hey guys, OT animals time because this one hits real close to home.
Bracken cave is home to the world’s largest gathering of bats. I’ve been there a few times, and seeing them flow out like a whispering black tornado is really something.
…and now they want to put a residential community directly below the flight path, and above the sensitive Edwards Aquifer recharge zone (aka, my water I drink). To top it off, they would be knocking down and building right on top of federally endangered golden cheeked warbler habitat.
In short, imagine the badguy of FernGully or something. Only with less sexy voice acting.
There’s more juicy details all in here, and please SIGN THE PETITION and spread the word? Please and thanks!
Bats are VERY IMPORTANT to ecosystems but a lot of people don’t seem to realise or accept that because ew, bats, gross, right? That this project is even being considered kinda makes me really mad.
The nine circles of hell from Dante’s Inferno recreated in Lego by Mihai Mihu
I. LIMBO: A place of monotony, here the souls are punished to wander in restless existence while they moan helplessly in echoes between the ruins of a temple.
II. LUST: Surrounded by erotic representations, those overcome by lust are forced to watch and experience disgusting things, ultimately being condemned to drown in the menstrual river.
III. GLUTTONY: The circle itself is a living abomination, a hellish digestive system revealing horrific faces with mouths ready to devour the gluttons over and over for eternity.
IV. GREED: This pompous place is reserved for the punishment of the greedy ones.
V. ANGER: In this depressing place the souls are trapped in the swamp, they can’t move and they cannot manifest their frustration which is making them even more angry.
VI. HERESY: The giant demon watches closely over his fire pit, dwarfing the damned that are dragging the new arrivals in the boiling lava. Those who committed the greatest sins against God are getting a special treatment inside the temple where they are doomed to burn for eternity in the scorching flames.
VII. VIOLENCE: A place of intense torture where the horrific screams of the damned are eternally accompanied by the hellish beats of drums.
VIII. FRAUD: In Fraud the Demons enjoy altering the shape of souls, this is how they feed.
IX. TREACHERY: Lucifer lies here chained by the Angelic Seal which keeps him captive in the frozen environment.
I was like.. “Is that is a giant penis statue?” and then I noticed the bleeding wall vagina and it got even better from there
Wow add Restless to the list of Buffy episodes I really like, holy shit. Basically the entire episode is in dreams, and has Buffy’s usual mix of comedy and drama entertainment values, with some extraordinarily beautiful imagery mixed in.
Also, this happened.
I’m reading the ingredients now and they are as follows:
US Fanta Grape: Water, corn syrup, carbonic acid, natural flavourings, tartaric acid, potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate (listed in german as Antimol and E202) “to preserve flavour”, Citric acid, colourings
JP Fanta Grape: Fructose, flavourings, caramel colouring (listed as E150 in german), anthocyanin (listed as E163), acidifier, preservatives (interestingly the german label stops here), sweetner (stevia), vitamin B6
I’m genuinely surprised they’re so different, presumably due to different laws on chemical additives in food. The japanese one also doesn’t list water as an ingredient, though I’m gonna assume it has it in there and I’m not drinking delicious liquid fructose. The japanese one seems unhealthier, and they apparently don’t feel the need to be very specific with their ingredients, but it sure is about 500x more delicious than the US one, if you ask me.
I was thinking about Crowley’s ‘666’ number
and it occurred to me, Crowley has service in Hell. He has a number that is literally impossible.
Therefore, Hell must have it’s own network
then it occurred to me only demons can use this network. But how? Must be in their aura or blood or something.
I repeat, it’s probably something in their blood
Sam has demon blood.
Conclusion: Sam gets his wifi from hell which is why he gets wifi everywhere
Sam Winchester, vessel for Lucifer and satanic wifi receiver.
…oh wow american Fanta Grape is a lot different to japanese Fanta Grape. I bought some from the import sweetie shop expecting a massive nostalgia bomb but it’s.. it’s all watery and weird and tastes like bleh. I just recently got a tiny can of Fanta Grape from the japanese shop a couple of weeks ago, so I have a direct comparison. This.. this is just… why.
