    All I could think of....


    Beware of The Blob, it creeps
    And leaps and glides and slides
    Across the floor
    Right through the door
    And all around the wall
    A splotch, a blotch
    Be careful of The Blob

    I laughed out loud that Fargo's nemesis's name is Bismark. :D

    I had the fleeting thought that we would find out that they were brothers or at least related some way.

    I'm just waiting for their Southern cousin, Pierre, to show up.

    I wonder if there really is a rivalry between Bismark and Fargo?

    It's an analogous situation here in Minnesota, where you have the capital (St Paul) and the big city (Minneapolis); the Minneapolitans can be pretty uppity about the sheer, overwhelming superiority of our their city, and the St Paulites have an understandable inferiority complex that leads them to senseless bragging about, well, not much of anything. (I heard another explanation for the rivalry once, but I don't remember it.)

    there were a lot of one liner nods to movies...in my old age, I now only recall one...

    "we're gonna need a bigger container" (Jaws)...

    The one thing that I couldn't understand is, how did Spot kill Big Ed if the larger version had to hold Duncan in place in order to devour him?

    I understand that it was a different kind of radiation, but the scene in Big Ed's lab made it appear that his death as a result of contact with spot was rapid (Ed would have known that something was up and would have tried to escape from Spot)

    Well, Spot didn't have any problem holding Duncan. It was only when Carter distracted it that he was able to get away, and even then it took some doing.

    I had to laugh at Tess's reactions to Jack's interventions, from mockery to contempt to "Wait a minute, I can't believe he actually has a point!" And Allison smiling knowingly through the whole thing, like she's thinking "I'd just tell her, but Jack is something you have to experience for yourself."

    For a light and frothy show, they sure do good character work.

    At the time Spot killed Big Ed, it was no more than a quart in size, so Big Ed had to have been sleeping when he was killed as he would have easily escaped from it. But by the way the clothes were laid out, it looked like it was a quick death (I just dont see some sleeping on a hard lab floor).

    way too much analysis ;)

    I'll give you a way: it ate his face first...

    I just assumed that since Big Ed was still green with the radiation, it was able to devour him at a much faster rate. I don't read anything into the placement of the clothes - they do it like that for visual effect/impact...not much visually to a pile of clothes where you can't clearly see Big Ed's bowling shirt with his name on it.

    I thought that Fargo and Bismark were probably brothers also.

    This was an OK episode and did show some nice character development but I am tired of the contempt some of the scientists have for Carter. He has something rare called Common Sense.

    is the actor who played big Ed someone famous? he was a bad enough actor that it looked like a cameo of some sorts...

    Apparently he was just an actor. Seems to be John DeSantis

    That's what I was thinking with the way they introduced him. I figured he was a pro bowler or something.

    Well, St. Paul is just such a better city overall, even being smaller than Minneapolis. Couple that with being the capital, and Minneapolis has a utter sense of bewilderment about why people like St. Paul so much better. Hence the overcompensation in describing how much better their city is. St. Paul residents don't even need to do any bragging. It's just obvious.

    But whatever the rivalry between those two, one thing is clear. Edina is better than either one of those. Even just being a suburb.

    The motion detector scene with Carter in the tunnels was highly reminiscent of Alien, too. The "The Blob" references were too obvious to note.

    There was at least one or two Incredible Hulk references, but I don't recall what they were
