(S07E06) It's somewhat refreshing to know that Charlie Harper is not the soulless heathen I thought he was. It turns out that Charlie does have a very spiritual side, that he's aware of the good fortune that's been bestowed on him, and he's in touch with his emotions to the point that he can cry.
So what could make Charlie Harper cry? Find out after the jump.
Now I'm just waiting for the Burn Notice country music video.
NY-LON (no, not nylon the fabric!), refers to the New York-London connection via air. The story, which writers Patti Carr and Lara Runnels (who both worked on 'Til Death) are translating from the U.K. version, is about a British businessman who meets a New York City record store clerk while she's in London, and then their subsequent attempts to maintain a transatlantic romance. The series ran seven episodes in England, which is not atypical. Of course, for American TV, many more episodes than that will be necessary to constitute a hit.
Starting July 14 at 8:00 and 8:30 p.m., Discovery Health will air a new program called Doctor*ology, a look at all the different "ologies" going on at your local hospital.
The series will be hosted by actor Leslie Nielsen, who will inject a bit of comedy into each episode along with his nephew, Robert. Based on the press releases, expect an educational program with plenty of goofy comedy to make it appealing.
Independent Lens doesn't shy away from featuring documentaries on difficult subjects, but out of all the ones I've seen so far, this one was the most heart-wrenching. Motherland Afghanistan follows an Afghan American doctor who returns to Afghanistan to work in a hospital to provide medical care and expertise for pregnant women who live in a land where infant mortality rates are high and medical supplies are always in short supply. Dr. Qudrat Mojadidi role at Afghanistan's largest hospital is not only to help patients, but to train the doctors and staff with the help of funding from the U.S. government.
Motherland Afghanistan focuses on a crisis in Afghanistan largely ignored here in the states, but it's worth seeing not only because it's educational, but because it shows there are still people willing to try and make things better despite the odds, and to help those in need not only through medical treatment, but through education as well.
Motherland Afghanistan, filmed and directed by Dr. Mojadidi's daughter Sedika, will air on select PBS stations tonight at 10 p.m.
CBS is hoping for the same kind of success with 3 lbs, a drama about a rude-but-brilliant brain surgeon that is being called a rip-off of House (something that completely escaped me in my early review because I don't watch House). Even CBS admits 3 lbs is similar to House... but the network uses the word "compatible" to describe the similarities. CBS says it hopes The Unit provides a bunch of viewers, but it doesn't hurt that Fox's programming ends at ten, which is when 3 lbs begins.
Eh. The doctor thing doesn't really do it for me. What other categories could we choose to vote on most date-able actors? Bad boys? Nerds? Cops? Superheroes? What characteristic do you find sexy?
BBC News is reporting that the series two opener of Doctor Who, New Earth, starring David Tennant as the 10th Doctor, attracted over eight million viewers to BBC ONE in the U.K. on Easter Saturday.
The audience peaked at around 8.3 million viewers, not taking in to account those who had recorded the show to watch it later.
It was up against Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on ITV1, which netted around five million viewers in all.
9.4 million people tuned in to The Christmas Invasion towards the end of 2005, and 10 million tuned in to watch the opening episode of the season revival last year when Christopher Eccleston stepped into the Time Lord's Tardis for the first episode of the series in over 16 years.
While that's going on, Kelso is upset because a bird has flown into the lobby of the hospital. When The Janitor acts like it's no big deal, Kelso explains that birds can be major carriers of infection, which, of course, is a bad thing in a hospital. The Janitor keeps the bird and bonds with it, teaching it to do his dirty work for him. The bird goes around stealing pens and causing other assorted mischief.
What does this mean? During last week's episode, Hunting Party, one of Jack's flashbacks shows him looking at an X-ray of his patient's back. The date on that X-ray: November 16, 2005. Huh??? The detail-oriented folks over at Lost-Media caught the date, which can only been seen if you have HDTV.
Was this an oversight on the part of the directors? It's entirely possible that the x-ray was made in November for a January airing. But, nothing ever seems accidental on Lost. We don't actually know when Lost happens and this X-ray suggests that it's in the future. How far into the future? Well, far enough for Jack to get himself quite a collection of tattoos.
