Fringe 6B S03E14 (Fox)

It’s fitting that this show will premiere on Fox, since this was the network of the X-Files. Fringe has got much in common with the X-Files, yet it is different. Fringe is the latest show of wunderkind J.J. Abrams. Like most new shows, the pilot was leaked on the internet a few weeks ago.

Just like a few other shows, like True Blood, I’m happily surprised by Fringe. The production values are great and I’m enjoying it a lot. A lot of money has been pumped into this show, and it just looks fabulous. The protagonists are also an interesting bunch. There isn’t much more that we learn of the Pattern, but Massive Dynamics is most definitely deeply connected with those events, even though they aren’t sharing their information with Agent Dunham.

I think that this show takes a few common elements from Alias, especially for all the things that concerned the mystic scholar Milo Rambaldi. The same kind of esoteric science is involved in this show. It’s done very well. I’d actually like to see this type of mystic science have more of an impact on the show. It would suit the show very well. A bit of the supernatural wouldn’t be bad either.

Castle Setup S03E16 (ABC)

I’ve been a Nathan Fillion fan for quite a while. Ever since Firefly, I was really impressed by his acting. Since he is starring in a new series named Castle, I took it upon myself to watch it weekly.

Anyway, what do I like about Castle? Well it stars an obnoxious, womanizing novelist. Detective Kate Beckett is a closet hottie, played by Stana Katic. Her hotness is kind of hard to explain. The actress is quite hot, but in Castle, she toned it down. She doesn’t wear much makeup and favors a natural look, kind of like “Oh I’m hot, but I could be the girl next door, BTW, FYI, I’m still smoking hot.” That’s how I described her in my mind. She’s kind of got the ex-catwalk model look going for her, which is quite good.

So that’s a good point. Plus she’s Canadian and a good actress. That’s always a good combination.

Paintball Robot Brings the Pain to the Paintball Arena

I still remember the first time that I went to play paintball. For some, playing with the paintball guns was just too much and they went kind of nutty. I especially liked the paintball grenades. Now, it looks like paintballers will have another option: the paintball robot.

Tech to Streamline Morning Routines & Wake Up Earlier

022411_rg_ReMorningRoutine_01.jpgIf there’s one thing that we’ve learned over the last year is that you tend not to be very productive late at night. This is why instead of going to bed late at night, you should actually go to bed early and try to wake up earlier in an effort to get things done. Here are some ideas and technology to make this work for you.

I’ve never thought of combining the Terminator with Spongebob Squarepants, but that doesn’t mean that this combo doesn’t look good.

Playable Angry Birds Cake: This Will Get Messy

Yes, I have to admit that one of the only games that I have installed on my MacBook Pro is Angry Birds. When I first started playing it, I immediately understood why the game was so addictive. It’s even addictive to people watching it. The Angry Birds playable birthday cake brings up a whole new meaning to the word messy if you start throwing around some angry birds.
