Review: Futurescape, With James Woods

kelloggs2066's picture

The Science Channel has come up with a new futurist series called "Futurescape" with actor James Woods as the host. It has physicist Michio Kaku for "legitimizing" backup. It also is peppered with sound bites from various "futurists," "biophysics ethicists," and other such "experts."

To sum it up, it is another one of those paranoid drivel TV shows designed to scare you. The opening episode about advancing technology in the field of Brain/Machine Interfaces seems designed to drive up the price of stock in the Tinfoil Hat industry.

Who George Lucas Should Have Ripped Off for the Pre-Quels

Well, we all know that George Lucas took Ben-Hur as the starting point
for the Pre-quels, and riffed on it from there. One can see his
reasoning: Ben-Hur is one of those socially concious movies that
critics love, and most people who are into film will say they've
watched it, but let's face it. Most of us kinda wait until the
chariot race and sleep through the rest, except to get up to get
snacks from the kitchen.
