Astrophysics Has Rarely Been so Dapper

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | March 16, 2014 | Comments ()


Bob’s Burgers on Fox at 7:00pm ET.

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey on Fox at 9:00pm ET. I feel like the people who select and schedule Fox’s primetime offerings must be in a completely different building/state/universe from the people who are responsible for Fox News. There’s no other way to explain the complete ideological disconnect on display here. Rupert Murdoch probably doesn’t care, because the only ideology Murdoch holds is fat stacks of cash.

Shameless on Showtime at 9:00pm ET.

The Walking Dead on AMC at 9:00pm ET.

Crisis on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new series starring Gillian Anderson, so if you’ve had a Gillian Anderson shaped hole in your life and didn’t have the stomach for Hannibal today is your lucky day! Although the commercials for this do not look super promising, I’m sure Ms.Anderson will acquit herself well no matter what. The series is centered around a group of children including the President’s son being kidnapped while on a field trip. Also starring Dermot Mulroney, Rachel Taylor, and Lance Goss.

Genevieve Burgess does find it sad that Gillian Anderson has now been on two shows involving FBI agents without playing an FBI agent. Scully 5eva.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I'm in love with Cosmos, not for the flashy graphics and pretty colors, but for every time Tyson looks at the screen with just surfacing rage and makes a statement about science being true whether you believe it or not. I wish I associated myself with more religious people, just to see the outrage.

  • chanohack

    I'm not seeing any yet, despite my numerous religious contacts and my blatant baiting of "I <3 Cosmos" on Facebook. My cousins' other Grandpa (my grandpa-in-law?) is grumbly, but non-specific.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I think you mean Dylan McDermott. Or Dermon McDylan. Dermot Mulroney isn't a real person.

    Or wait. Is it Marmot Dermadlyn?

  • BWeaves

    Have you been drinking John Travolta cider beer again?

  • e jerry powell

    MARMOSET Dermadlyn. In keeping with tonight's COSMOS theme.

  • foolsage

    Did you mean Domtun Reemlory?

    Dornet Momelury?


  • e jerry powell

    I can hear the fundies screaming! TYSON JUST SAID THAT EVOLUTION IS REAL!

  • DeaconG

    When I hear that, my usual reply is "How do you know He DIDN'T do it that way?"

  • As ideologies go, one involving fat stacks of cash isn't the worst I've ever heard of. If nothing else, it'll probably be a lot less self-righteous than a lot of the other ones on offer.

  • BlackRabbit

    I'm waiting for someone on Fox to call out Tyson for his evil "science" only to have a hilarious mixup where they accidentally insult MIKE Tyson. Then the punching.

  • chanohack

    1. Your ideas are the best.

    2. I watched tonight's episode with my Fox-News-watching Pa who sent me to Christian school for ten years. To his credit, he did not freak out, but I'm sure he had a lot of internal dialog.

  • e jerry powell

    Or severe indigestion. Either answer is acceptable.

  • I loved that this episode focused on biology (genetics, life, evolution) but I kept thinking "When's the outrage train going to depart?"

  • cruzzercruz

    I kept wondering how the Oklahoma affiliates would block this episode's evolution based content. I assume that the screen just went blank due to technical difficulties for an hour.

    In my dreams, that screen has an image of Jesus in an electrician's outfit trying to fix an old tube tv with antennae.

  • Jim

    It's not quite what you were looking for but at least I got rid of the offensive Native American stereotype at the same time. You like?

    Sorry it's sloppy, I'm on my lunch and only have 10min left!

  • cruzzercruz

    Now, all I see are crucifixes around him. This should cover tv screens during all natural disasters. Bang up job!

  • e jerry powell

    Probably about forty seconds in.

  • e jerry powell

    It'll be FOX News, though. It will be GLORIOUS when Daily Show comes back after Spring Break.

  • Jim

    I'm boycotting Cosmos unless Tyson says "Bill-y-uns and Bill-y-uns" now and then for old-time's sake.

  • BWeaves

    I upvoted and down voted you.

    Upvote for wanting Tyson to say "Bill-y-uns and Bill-y-uns."
    Down vote for the boycott.

  • Jim

    That's fair.

  • e jerry powell

    I'm actually trying to figure out what's going to replace "Looking" and "True Detective" on Sundays until the April reset. I may just go to bed after "House of Lies." I've been sleeping a lot lately anyway.

  • Martin Holterman

    Didn't we already see that show just recently? Only then it had Toni Collette instead of Gilian Anderson.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    And Marmot Dermadlyn instead of Dermon McDylan.

  • John W

    Why yes I DO have a Gillian Anderson sized hole in my life. Thank you for asking.

  • cox

    have you tried "the fall" then? it will fill this hole beatifully.
