  8. arial2 says:

    And both Revolution and Intelligence borrowed the micro robot idea from SG1, which borrowed it from TNG, which sort-of borrowed it from the movie Fantastic Voyage,…

  9. MisterGrimmster says:

  20. Dang, I had no idea Revolution called solo-dibs on nanobots. Is that TV only, because otherwise Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man movie might be in trouble…

    WWE Monday Night Raw (Randy Orton vs. Sheamus) and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (hope Fallon can give Letterman and Kimmel a run for their money). On Demand: Almost Human (only three episodes left of the season or series even if it means renewal or cancellation). SKIP IT: Star Crossed.

    I wonder if the midnight start time for Tonight w/JF will work okay this week. I see that on Friday, Tonight/JF is back at 11:35pm, normal time, but due to Olympics over-runs into 11pm hour Monday-Thursday this week, Tonight gets pushed back a half hour to make room for the half hour of local news. Hmm, not sure this makes sense. I know the local news ‘must’ have their half hour, but this may give DL and JK a slight advantage with the half hour start time lead.

    Either way, I’m DVR’ing Tonight/JF and Letterman – I can’t miss the top ten with the HIMYM gang. Interested to see how the Seinfeld visit on Tuesday works with JF – that may end up being the best Tonight show of the week.

  33. Rich Abey says:

    It’s Castle Monday tonight! Besides I am hearing some great things about tonight’s episode from my friends across the border. The ending in particular is “mindblowing” according to one friend…and something about a song from “Always” resurfacing tonight? Anyway I’m all giddy with excitement!! :)

  36. TX-DK says:

    Star Crossed sounds like a rehashed Roswell.

  38. Kate says:

    I can’t wait for Castle. I’ve heard it’s an amazing episode! I hope the Olympics don’t hurt the ratings too much.
