That's the E thing, isn't it? I've got it set to record so I can savour it at a better hour.

Parallel Worlds Parallel Lives

Imagine spending 20 years under the same roof as your father, but never really knowing him. Then imagine discovering your father came up with the theory of parallel universes, and then (after leaving academia because no one took his work seriously) effectively talked Eisenhower out of World War III. Imagine discovering that your father was a genius so far ahead of his time, that people will only truly start to appreciate his contribution to science fifty years from now.

Mark Everett's quest to discover his father, was truly extraordinary. The look on his face when a gleeful physicist (so excited to meet the great man's son) puts his father's work on a par with the theory of relativity or Newton's Law, was a joy to behold.

As Mark sat in a cemetery at the end of the documentary, he ponders that if he'd known all this about his Dad before, he probably wouldn't have bothered with the music. He quickly thinks better off this remembering that, "those physics guys don't get as many girls as rock stars". Before settling on the certainty that his father, "was a rock star of physics".

Oh, and he's just some guy called 'E', who formed some band called 'Eels'.

The Duke's of Edinburgh of Hazzard.

Having met Prince Phillip, I cannot imagine a circumstance in which this won't be hilarious. Unless they gag him, or keep him away from anyone of another race, class, or sex.

This Saturday, 10.40pm with You're Fired directly after.


I caught the repeat of The Inbetweeners last night, and despite it being clunky and horribly embarrassing to watch at times, it was somewhat charming, and featured an improbably funny gag about paedophilia (to us anyway). It also featured Greg Davies from We Are Klang who I think is brilliant.

Another great episode of The Wire tonight. I'm already loving Prezbylewski's arc for the season and the way it already seems to suggest that the violence and crime of Baltimore is so endemic that it permeates the school system. The last scene was particularly shocking.

Are you watching it on FX? If you are, I'll try not to put my big foot in it and spoil anything for you.

I really enjoyed the Prez arc, mainly because it's something in one of my favourite shows evoh to which I can relate. The rabbit in the headlights feeling when up in front of a "bad class" for the first time; the realisation that they're not all bad and trying ways to get them working.
Thankfully, no-one's been slashed or stabbed at our place yet; but the environmental influence on learners' behaviour and attitude is not to be underestimated.

Yeah. I was going to buy the boxset for Season 4 but I decided to wait for the price to go down a bit first.

Me too Maian. I tape it on Monday night and it's my Tuesday morning treat.

It's when shows like The Wire get low ratings and various talent shows top the charts that you start to realise we live in a world designed for idiots.

I'm watching it now. Exceptional documentary, I particularly liked the way in which it managed to break down things like Schrodinger's Cat, an experiment that has always fascinated me, and places them within a theoretical context. Following E's journey is truly wonderful television.

I just wish they didn't have Annie Mac narrating it.

It was indeed pretty swell. Just about to start reading his book.

And doesn't anyone use BBC iPlayer around here? If people have got shoddy net connections, fine, but anyone else, no excuse.

Isn't that a Coolio song? I haven't seen any of S.4 yet so I'm trying to avoid plot twists. Nothing revealed here so far that I haven't seen elsewhere. Have a care, gentlemen. wink.gif

I really like the sound of "Parallel Worlds Parallel Lives" - if anyone knows were to watch online, please share.
