Take your hands off my father! He has dementia! Can't you see his mind is gone?
OMG, I love Fi! I love the look Sam gave her!
I laughed out loud.
But I also noticed that it looks like they've cut and styled Bruce Campbell's hair and done away with quite a bit of the gray. He's not looking quite as old and puffy as last season.
"Yes, well, I, uh, I appreciate your thoughts on the matter, I, in fact I... well, I encourage you to, to always, uh, challenge me, uh, when you feel it's appropriate. You should never be cowed by authority. Except, of course, in this instance, when I am clearly right and you are clearly wrong."
The show speaks with great confidence and authority and I was wondering how much of Michael’s narration is factual and how much is just made to sound factual so that people aren’t taking notes on how to build bombs.
MN: We never really give super-specific recipes, like when—well, let me take that in pieces. We’re pretty rigorous with the voiceover stuff in the sense that everything generally works. We don’t say that something is possible, that it’s not possible. That said. oh, a great example would be freezing a lock and smashing it. It’s actually possible to do that. You need a kind of specific lock, right, it’s just I guess I’d say we allow Michael to have extraordinary skill and a certain amount of luck with regard to things working and not working, but we really enjoy the, and I know all of the writers on the show enjoy or the other ones claim to, I certainly do, enjoy the research into what could you actually do. So that when Michael replaces the trigger bar spring with a bobby pin, that’s actually possible. Our armorer did it. It took him – and he’s pretty good with guns – it took him about three minutes. Michael did it in about 45 seconds. So I guess I’d say we allow for the possibility that Michael maybe practiced doing that off-screen so that he could get his time down.
And then with regard to the building of bombs, we either take a page out of the Fight Club book, which is fudge an ingredient, but usually we’re talking through things quickly enough that we’re not really listing all the ingredients in any case. Like, it is possible to make thermite at home, it has something to do with aluminum foil, here are a couple of the steps. If you want to go figure it out on your own, we’re not going to show you exactly how to do it, but we’re going to point to the fact that one can. So we would never claim that it is possible to make thermite at home when it is not possible to make thermite at home; we also would not take you through all of the steps so that you could run into your kitchen and make it.
Leto II: We're about to go through the crucible, but we'll come out the other side. We always arise from our own ashes. Everything returns later in its... changed form.
I loved the scene where Sam picked a fight in order to attract the attention of the cops and the cops kept ignoring the disturbance. Hee. Also kind of a sad commentary for our times.
I can do that one better. In the commentary they talk about filming the scene in the finale where the car gets blown up by the rocket launcher. After they shot it the creator noticed that none of the cars on the freeway even paused when this dramatic event took place and thought "Damn, we should have had the stunt drivers stop and react." Then he realized they hadn't been using stunt drivers—which meant every single commuter on that highway simply drove on by a car getting blown up without batting an eye.
The Doctor: River Song, I could bloody kiss you! River: Oh well. Maybe when you're older.
The Doctor: Can I trust you, River Song? River: If you like. But where's the fun in that?
