(apparently I’m in a post-y sort of mood…)
How Fox Helped Make Torture Happen – apparently the interrogators at Guantánamo Bay are big fans of 24. I’m all for realism in TV shows, but at some point TV shows do affect popular culture and if 24 glamorizes torture (which it sounds like it does) to the point that it encourages government officials to do it…well, something’s wrong there.
I’m a big LOST fan, and I’ve been doing their ARG this summer/fall, which was to apply to a position in the Dharma Initiative, take some tests and then…well, it turns out the ARG was cancelled because of the financial crisis. At first I thought it was all part of the ARG, but no! You can see the email sent today. If you haven’t been watching LOST, or forgot what’s been happening since it’s been six months since the Season 4 finale (grumble grumble), you can see the LOST Starter Kit (password is “lafleur”), which is kinda like the “What the Frak?” summary of Battlestar Galactica.
