12 Monkeys: "Shonin" (Season 1, Episode 11)

"Hope is the luxury of those unburdened by fate." That's as good a line as any for a show that's literally swallowing its own tail in a fairly impressive manner. The future's attempt to stop a historical plague is, in fact, causing it to happen. So what do you do? I guess that will be up to Cole to figure out in 2015. At least this time he knows how twisted the game has become.

(Not)Fan Film Friday- Ballad of Serenity

This is not a fan film.  Except it is.   There are three fans of Joss Whedon's (more so now, after he contributed substantially to their Kickstarter  ) performing the theme to Whedon's Firefly.   So it is a fannish effort, even though they are all cast members of The Flash.

It's good.  It really is.   Apparently the Flash set is one of the happiest places to work on TV these days (and why wouldn't it be?  They have a great cast doing great things on a weekly basis.)  

Enjoy!

Since there doesn't seem to be much going on today, I'm going to rant for a few moments about the firing of Top Gear co-host Jeremy Clarkson.  I realize an auto/comedy show has absolutely nothing to do with science fiction, but there's a moral to this story.

Real Science: Curiosity Rover Finds Evidence of Nitrogen on Mars

Republibot 4.0's picture

Good news on the Martian front; after making a side trip to study some interesting rocks, the Curiosity Rover has found traces of nitrogenic compounds.  On Earth, nitrogen is usually of organic origins, but on Mars it was probably created by lightning strikes.  Either way, it indicates an increased possibility that Mars may have harbored life at one time, as nitrogen supplies the nutrients for life.
