Various Apocalypses  
In case you haven't seen it: xkcd answers: how would humans fare in a robot apocalypse . kitchen counter, tee hee. (I agree this is true but there are some Uncanny Valley 'bots in Japan that are totally gonna try to kill us all some day.)

My review of ALPHAS: ep 2 . I'm enjoying this season more than I thought I would, after they switched showrunners and sort of wimped out on the gamechanger. But there's some fun continuity and good ensemble work. Very definitely a X-Men v Brotherhood v Government thing going on which adds a lot.

In a case where promotional materials definitely work, I wasn't all that interested to see Total Recall but then I caught a "making of" thing on cable, and actually it looks pretty cool. I'm intrigued that they used practical cars for the hover cars. (The hover cars are perched on top of actual car frames which are then removed in post, which is a nifty way to do it) Also, since it's a Len Wiseman film Kate Beckinsale's in there kicking ass. With Jessica Biel. I don't have much of a thing for Colin Ferrell, but he seemed to have a lot of fun with the choreography in the bts clips.

I have a strange soft spot for Colin Farrell he's really good at the everyman thing without making it boring. I may actually go see this since I also have strange soft spot for the original Totall Recall yes it was awful but it was a lot of fun. (which now that I think of it could apply to Colin Farrell in a lot of ways as well).

Also your link to the Alpha's review is broken:-( Wasn't that episode awesome though?

I dont' have anything against him, he's fine in what I've seen, but he's not a particular draw either, that's all.

oh, duh, yes, link fixed! thanks. And yeah, I liked the episode a lot.
