Allegra: So, Dr. Kimble's area of expertise is cognitive science. Thirty years ago, he came up with this theory that TV could be ushering in an era of some sort of shared awareness, a collective consciousness. I know how it sounds. It was a pretty crazy theory at the time.
Jeff: I don't know. Maybe it was ahead of its time.
Allegra: And since then, TV has gotten all the more pervasive. I mean, it's everywhere. It's on our computers, our phones. Terrorist attacks, earthquakes, royal weddings, the Olympics; what happens? Everyone is glued to their televisions. Everyone watching the same thing at the same time.
The episode aired at a special time of 9/8 central.
