    Random thoughts:

    Ok, wow. If that was paid product placement by TigerDirect (which I assume it was), did any executives read the script? An employee that plants spycams on computers he "repairs" and a boss using cheap cables to make more profit on new ones? Nice. :eek:

    As for Steve getting bronzed, didn't they say back in the early HG Wells episodes that the person being bronzed is still "aware?" So wouldn't Steve realize that he'd been stuck there overnight?

    Hugo's drawing of a young Dr. V ... it was the bionic woman! :D

    Perhaps you do have some level of awareness, but no easy way to determine passage of time. H.G. was bronzed for approximately a century. She would have been able to determine time passing. But a bronze statue over night? Steve knew something happened, but not what or whe.

    What was the significance of the numbers on the guy's t-shirt (forgive me, I still don't know the characters names since I just started watching)? I know it was just a shirt, but it has to have some meaning somewhere, even if not in the realm of the show... 376984 or something? My google fu got me nothing.

    I wondered about that too. This was the "best" answer I found:

    (his name is Pete, BTW)

    Thanks on both accounts. I found the hex thing but didn't think that was the color of the shirt (unless our TV or my vision is way off, lol). I like the football explanation. :)

    Steve's ability to recognize lies also seemed to slip away at odd times. (And the shoes don't explain it since no one was wearing them.)

    Good thing the antivirus worked instantly while the virus took hours.

    I noticed that too, although maybe it had to do with the fact that the liars were "drunk".

    Well, it always worked that way on Star Trek, so we are pre-conditioned to accept it. Frequently ST: TNG took almost the whole show to get in to a predicament, but less than a minute to get out of it.

    For the stories sake, once the anti virus was applied and if it reverses the effects of the virus it's moot if it takes hours or works instantly. If it works instantly the story tellers are able to inject more plot into the story or do other things.

    My issue was what the heck kind of programming was that? That guy was just mouthing jibberish. At least say something like "write a loop to do X" or something.. Not just "X, Y, 1\3, z, y"

    So there *is* an electronics store named TigerDirect. I knew I knew that recognized that name from somewhere but couldn't figure out for the life of me why a real store would be on Warehouse 13. One big commercial. They could have at least made the store look spiffy. It was pretty dingy looking.

    The explanation for why Pete and Myka were naked in bed together was stupid.

    Yeah, that's what I was saying in my OP: if this was paid-product placement it was pretty bad in terms of advertising the brand.

    Interesting approach ... instead of placing your own product, trash your competitors! :up:

    Perhaps they forgot how to use a pen and paper to leave themselves a note?

    We have a Tiger Direct retail store here (now called CompUSA since they bought the brand name). The one on TV looks better than the real thing...
