It's not about the devices. It's about avoiding another potential source of electrical energy.
exactly. It's about ANY electric field, no matter the source or cause.
You think the lawyers have issues?
Every time they showed the grouding rod at Chuck's front door I laughed that the clamp is connected to the wood fence rail.
True, but you can also see a think cable running from the grounding rod, presumably to a cold water pipe or a another grounding rod actually in the ground.
It's not wood. It is made from square metal tubing. The welds at some of the joints are visible, and you can see the plate on the end of the upper rail where it is attached to the house.
I searched the thread but didn't see a mention that the writers had considered having Hank Schrader's wife Marie be the radiologic technician during Chuck's CAT scan. They decided it would have broken the mood of Chuck's hospital experience to show her there.
The rod is in the ground, as it should be. The clamp is where you attach a wire going to what you're grounding, like an antenna or the service entrance inside the house.
Chuck has the wire going to a clamp around the wood top rail of the porch.
I'd give Chuck a pass if the idea was that you touch the metal ring going around the wood.
I'm a little behind here, but here in Hawaii, the west coast AMC feed dropped the audio on the F bombs. No bleeps, but the audio cut out. Did the east coast feed keep it unedited?
I guess that you have discovered a new property of wood. If you go back and look at a couple of close ups in other episodes, you can plainly see several places where the "wood" is rusting and has an exposed metallic sheen where the paint is missing.
Not to mention the fact that a wood railing small enough to pass through one of those pipe style grounding clamps would not be strong enough to serve as an effective porch railing.
True enough, but I was addressing the idea proposed in this thread that a "zap" sound betrays a recording device secreted on Jimmy's person.
The grounding is clearly a metal rod pounded into the ground and clamped to a metal railing; it would be an effective ground if that were important. But Vince Gillian showed us in Chuck's previous visit to the hospital that the "electrical sensitivity" is completely psychosomatic and Jimmy knows it. Jimmy touches it to assuage Chuck's anxiety, and that he won't have to lie if Chuck asks him about it. The rules of the magical system electricity follows in Chuck's mind can neither be explained nor discredited by the rules electricity follows in the real world.
Again, it doesn't work that way. Unless his recording device is powered by a flux capacitor, it's not going to generate an electric charge in Jimmy simply by dint of him carrying it. If that were how it worked, wouldn't everyone with a phone be statically charged all the time?
Some foley artist inserted a zap sound. Nothing more.
Yep. I'm a pinball guy, and I always find it funny that whenever there is someone playing a pinball machine in a TV show or a movie, it always has mechanical chimes no matter what era the game is from. Virtually no solid state machines built from the 80's onward have chimes, but I guess the sound engineers just assume that chimes are what most people associate with pinball.
Hey, what'ya got?
I only have room for 2 machines at the moment: Jurassic Park & Game of Thrones Premium. An EM will be next.
I'm in Minnesota, and I didn't hear the actual audio of the f-bombs, either. Just the audio drop outs like you experienced.
I'm surprised at how many cable shows are censored on the network they're made to air on. Syfy does that a lot lately. Why don't they just tell the producers what they can and cannot do?
The producers may be looking beyond the original US network broadcast.
On Google Play the two ratf**ks weren't censored. I expect if it airs in the UK it wouldn't be censored.
The producers will often film a scene with the cursing and allow it to be bleeped on original airing but know that the streaming/disc/international versions will be uncensored. We live in a world where the original airing on the producing network is only a small fraction of how the show will eventually be viewed.
Chuck will tell Jimmy, "I'm not going to get my own brother disbarred or sent to prison. But you're going to quit being a lawyer or I *will* call the Bar about Kim, who knew about your criminal behavior and didn't do anything about it."
Kim will end things once Jimmy becomes too much of a liability.
And Jimmy will agree that Jimmy McGill will stop practicing law. Then Saul Goodman will start.
But Chuck still has to die or go crazy, otherwise he'd see Saul Goodman's advertising on benches, in commercials, et cetera.
I watch via the Sling TV service, and I'm fairly certain that nothing was bleeped/cut.
