It's not the first time a thought-provoking show was beat-out by some mind numbingly stupid shit.

Good, my kids like it and that's good news. There will be less competition for the good jobs!

I'm not sure what's up with Cosmos. Not what I expected at all. How could they **** this up?

That has to be pretty good.. I mean FOX couldn't have expected it to be number 1 in all demographics, right?

And what about the other channels it's been featured on? Or any sort of online availability?

Don't know about the others, but The Good Wife is far from 'stupid shit.'

It is a show that portrays the law, Illinois [Chicago] law in particular better than any show before it.

They present real controversies and the very VERY real maneuvers surrounding them in a way that is compelling on it's surface but mesmerizing if you are a practicing lawyer.

I've made some the EXACT objections and arguments made on this show, and have paused the show to pick my own brain when they present arguments and objections that I haven't seen to ruminate on how I'd react.

And it's not just 'the law' but firm politics, politics politcs, alliances, assessment of claim value, negotiations, handshake deals, etc., that it gets right.

And part of what makes it so compelling is, they didn't go for L@O's 'ripped from today's headlines' approach, but scoured the court system for important cases that AREN'T making headlines, They're all over cybercurrency, data mining, wiretapping, sports injury, etc. in ways nobody's even thought of dramatizing yet.

The Illinois Bar should offer CLE credit just for watching.

If you want to see how law is ACTUALLY practiced, at least in Illinois, TGW is a great show.

Oh, TGW is stpid shit and BBT you prefer.

Name your time and place buddy, just name it!!!!

Seriously though, I like BBT [and to be honest most all Lorre shows] for what they are.

And TGW isn't a depressing show, it can be quite amusing and suspenseful in turns. But it nails what practicing law with high stakes looks like.

Bruno fantasized about the nature of the universe then would pick and choose aspects of science or math that he felt propped up his beliefs. Bruno's belief system was NOT AT ALL based on discoverable understanding. You can say it over and over but why don;t you actually try reading up and you'll see he was just as much about "revealed" truths as the Church was... he just had a different set of beliefs than they did and he (just like the Church) was willing to pick and choose aspects of science to justify them.
I was more upset by Bruno's lip syncing during the Superbowl.

You do realize that's possible?

I don't watch Enter The Dragon to see a Twilight romance.

As for the detractors, you might open more minds by presenting the science alone than you would presenting the science then muttering 'but your religion keeps ****ing all this interesting shit up.'

At it's base, NDT is not being a scientist right now, he's being a social activist.
Good for him then. Its about ****ing time. 63 million religious channels and yet a science program spends a minute touching on religion, oh noes the humanity of it all. Religion has impeded science throughout time. Putting a note about that in a science program is completely the right thing to do.

PS don't watch if your faith can't handle it.
