A New Look for The Televixen! And Thoughts on Friday’s T:SCC


The Televixen's New Logo

Welcome to The Televixen’s 100th post, and I’m celebrating with a makeover! The blog now has a sharp new look created by myself and 742 Designs.

There was still much TV watching while working on the site design, and I have to say I was most impressed by Friday night’s fantastic episode of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. If you haven’t seen “Adam Raised a Cain” yet, don’t read any further, and don’t watch the below clip, but do yourself a favour and find this episode on Hulu or Fox’s website ASAP!

I’m going to come right out and say this may be my favourite T:SCC episode ever. Each scene with John Henry was intense, and this final scene with him and Savannah Weaver gave me goosebumps.

I was also completely floored by this exchange between Ellison and John Henry:

John Henry: . . . The human brain is an amazing computer. Its raw clock speed is 20 billion calculations per second. Its storage is functionally infinite. But it’s flawed.

Ellison: How is that?

John Henry: There’s nowhere to download it when you die.

Ellison: Not exactly, no.

John Henry: Your Bible solves this problem by using the concept of heaven.

Ellison: Yes

John Henry: Billions of souls with no bodies.

Ellison: Okay.

John Henry: Yet all this is required simply to process the unique entity you call John Henry.

Ellison: Yes.

John Henry: It’s possible heaven has a hardware problem.

Ellison: It’s not that simple.

There’s only one episode left this season, and I’m excited to see what happens next, but anxious not knowing the fate of the show. Here’s hoping the cancellation grumblings are wrong.
