Out of the Blue

I saw a reference today to Indiana Jones today that made me think of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, a recollection not as painful for me as it should be, as I have not seen the much-reviled latest installment in the series. This is because, as I've mentioned in the past, MrsBlue and I end up seeing a vast majority of movies after they come to cable/satellite, especially when the reviews are as mixed (to put it kindly) as they were for Indy 4. Which brings me to my point: Is Spielberg so embarrassed by this film he's keeping it off cable? It was released well over four years ago, and its absence from the small screen is starting to seem like the it's getting The Star Wars Holiday Special treatment. By all accounts this is deserved, but I remain masochistically curious to see it.

Masochistic Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Siegius Arena.
Stories: Florida man accused of returning used enemas. Thanks Gawker.
Seattle police seek more drones while two sit unused. Thanks Slashdot.
Science: Satellite Left Stranded by SpaceX Rocket Falls From Space.
Media: Minecraft Environmentalists.
The Onion Takes on TED.
This guy is awesome at kicking American footballs.
Follow-up: Brevity.

and for the record, i do appreciate the backstory and subtexts, but that's completely subsumed by the horrible script from the writer of one of the most illogical, pretentious, talentless shows in tv history - Lost.

For the record, I hated Lost too - as it literally made no sense. I watched every episode, tried to make head or tail of it, and even with 'help' simply couldn't. The same is not true of Prometheus, as I outlined in my last response (or at least on the points I outlined.) Lindeloff walked from Lost when he discovered he had painted himself into a corner.

...when the APOLLO astronauts came back from the moon they were placed in quarantine in an air tight chamber, but i suppose you think that was a foolish waste of time. that's because, well, you're an idiot. there really is no other explanation necessary - anybody with even a high school level science background can see the blatant stupidity...

Sooo... Let me get this straight... You're comparing a government run early space program, with three military trained pilots, that the world was watching... To one oddball scientist taking his helmet off? (As it is just Holloway at first, and they all do try to talk him out of it.) Tell me, was Jenner irresponsible when he didn't obey AMA guidelines for the first smallpox innoculation? Or was he a scientist working by himself? And Marie Curie! What an idiot! Her research killed her - would never happen in real life...

Oh wait, it did...

High school level science background? My degree, Masters and current undertaking of a PhD say otherwise. You thinking it's stupid does not make it so.

...You could slam your hand in a car door for another two hours, too. But common sense would tell you that if it was painful the first time, it probably won't get any better.

nin - you didn't like it, I can appreciate that. But don't trot out reasons and when they're shot down come out with answers like "Wow, seriously?" or "And still unbelieveable."

They're non-arguments, you're better than that.
