    Thanks for another fantastic episode, and for putting me on to that interview with Ksenia Solo; it was great hearing her thoughts on Kenzi.

    Oh, and Summer was right about Falling Skies. That’s why I haven’t watched it past the first (excruciating, imo) episode :p

    I am listening to your podcast (150) and am truly amazed that you have just said that Macaulay Culkin starred in A.I. : Artificial Intelligence. That is so wrong. The star of A.I. isbetter actor Hailey Joel Osmendt, who is a much better actor than Macaulay Culkin.

  3. Brent says:

    Katrina, thanks for that. I too knew it wasn’t Macaulay Culkin (I own the DVD!), but by the time I got around to speaking, I had forgotten to point that out. 🙂

    Love the show as always, just had a couple thoughts about Haven. I get the feeling that the whole tattoo thread is actually kinda important to the show. And while I agree that the whole Duke’s wife thing isn’t that interesting, I think giving him the tattoo thread was a good idea. It allows them to tell more of that story every week without having to involve Audrey & Nathan all the time. As to the importance of the whole tattoo thing, remember that the deceased M.E.’s daughter has one on her back shoulder that appears and disappears. And she showed Duke the cemetery where most of the headstones had the symbol from the tattoo on them. Also remember that Vince & Dave not only know about the tattoo but one of them actually has one, if I remember that episode from last season correctly. So with all the bread crumbs related to the tattoo symbol, it’s clear the show places a fair amount of importance on it, and has me very curious!

    Regarding the “do I have to?” tuner minute, I have those thoughts about Fringe. It’s a good show, I enjoy it, but I still have the last 3 or so episodes from last season on my dvr unwatched because I always seem to find something else to watch. Like all of Farscape & Burn Notice (so far). And whatever else might possibly be of interest because the “do I have to?” feeling is so pervasive.
