    I don't think Morgan Saylor was in Contagion. I just checked I think you have her confused with Anna Jacoby-Heron.

  • bicelis Dec 04, 2012

    -We DO wanna know what you're wearing Price

    -Morgan Saylor is really really good. Considering her plot, a different actress could have made this character insufferable. I really look forward to seeing her in something else and hopefully something with quality and not two and a half men

    -24 was on FOX and it had death and high stakes. So there's something.

    -In some previous episode Carrie asked Virgil to look into Quinn. So when we saw him and "the mute" breaking in, we kinda knew where they were breaking in.

    A great podcast, guys! I'm wondering if you guys are gonna do a feature on the new shows' title cards like you did last season where you graded them. Also, I wanna know what you guys think of this season of SPN and whether Price has finished Season 1. Keep up the great work!

  • JasperVerbon Dec 02, 2012

    I listened from 33:45 until and including the part with New Girl, love it!

    How about you discuss Homeland and where it's headed? What about 'the machine' in Person of Interest? Will the machine become conscious ? Will it become more involved :D ?

  • FringeFanatic Dec 04, 2012

    And what the hell is with The Machine's timeline extending to 2016?! I've brought this up many times, but no one has even theorized along with me.

    Can The Machine see the future? Are we watching the past? Will the show end in 2016? Is 2016 when The Machine breaks out of its box and goes full on Skynet?

    Somebody theorize with me!

  • bicelis Dec 04, 2012

    I think's just there without any meaning. Computers have calendars looong in the future, so it's probably just the same.

    I see it as an empty calendar which The Machine fills up every day with new footage, facts and all the data it collects. And since The Machine is a threat predicting device, it makes projections and fills those future calendar windows with them (with a pencil of course :) in case something changes, like Reese and Finch changing the predicted course of events)

  • FringeFanatic Dec 04, 2012

    But why 2016? I know computers have calendars long into the future, but they chose to show us its calendar up to a a specific year. In season 1 I'm pretty sure it only showed up to 2012. Why the 4 year jump? Has The Machine's predictive projections become more evolved, thus allowing it to predict events further into the future. Is there a chance something of particular significance will happen in 2016?

    It could just be some arbitrary number without meaning, but when it comes to sic-fi I'm hardwired to look at all the possibilities.

  • bicelis Dec 04, 2012

    Hmm. Interesting observation. I didn't notice the change.
    1. POI is good at pacing and Jonathan Nolan looks like he's planning ahead
    2. The Machine's little details have been changing before and they were taken into consideration

    You might be onto something here

  • Ne2SuIueSzb Dec 02, 2012

    Thanks guys for another great podcast!
    About Underemployed: Me kind of being in that phase, I liked the first episode. But I still have to catch up on the other episodes. So it wasn't the most thrilling, but still an entertaining episode. And if it throws out the cliches, it'll be great.

  • ale00928 Dec 01, 2012

    Good Podcast! here in Norway in the cold long winter it is appreciated to have good stuff to hear .

  • ale00928 Dec 01, 2012

    DEXTER has the best intro. Seven seasons with it, and it still make me feel good about the show. I ever pull a litte smile...
    REVENGE is also good,because it is short and simple. Just like LOST.
    AMERICAN HORROR STORY could have been shorter, but sound/ music is nice.
    But can any INTRO create history as THE X FILES? I doubt it... or?

  • emmairis Dec 01, 2012

    Sorry I have an unrelated question: why are there NO comedy shows with an hour long format? does the fun have to be short so that you'll want more or is it some kind of tv policy?

  • KeithStammer Dec 01, 2012

    On cable TV there is an hour long comedy called Wedding Band on TBS that I enjoy, but it'll probably only last one season due to it showing on Saturday nights.

    As far as broadcast I think they keep them down to half an hour to keep costs low, as well as the fact of viewers having generally shorter attention spans.

  • emmairis Dec 03, 2012

    what about drama then? are 40 mins needed to develop the storylines or do they have more funds?

  • KeithStammer Dec 03, 2012

    I think it's a combination of the two reasons. I don't think you can really have a dramatic story take place in one half hour of television and have it be satisfying, or have enough time to fully have the story develop without seeming cramped.

  • bicelis Dec 04, 2012

    You can, Californication does it well, but it's a half drama half comedy.

    NTSF:SD:SUV::, Childrens Hospital, Eaglehart fit in a LOT of storyline into 10 minutes :D

  • Splat Dec 01, 2012

    I'd really like to know more about the rules regarding acting credits. I always read the opening credits and look for a familiar guest star. I agree, it can be a spoiler. I think one of the best casting credits was Kevin Spacey on the end sequence for Seven - one of the most spoiled movies ever managed to keep at least one suprise!

    Also, I think I might be one of the only people in the world who loves the opening credits to Homeland.

    Regards,

    The Mindy Project theme song bugs me because it does sound like a throwback theme song but I can't quite place it. Someone said Clarissa Explains It All but it doesn't feel close enough.

    For me, knocking on a show/movie depends on the star and the context. Like Katherine Heigl talked crapped about Grey's Anatomy multiple times while she was on it (happens). She didn't show up for filming of her last arc. Then she kept asking to be taken back. It made me loose a little respect of her.

  • gpgurl50 Dec 05, 2012

    Apparently the Mindy Project theme song was made by B.J. Novak's brother.
