Of course we can't discount the influence of that frankenturd Rupert Murderoftastedouch and his Fox network, which likes to take promising or interesting shows out back of the barn and skullfuck them till they scream for mercy and expire. A show like that debuting on friday at 9 is like opening a pretzel stand in the Sahara. Then they moved it opposite CSI so that it could compete with the most popular show on television and one that actually DOES have a modicum of intelligence just so any audience members it had left would leave it. If they hadn't cancelled it I imagine they might have moved it to a timeslot where it could be regularly interupted by baseball.
I've started reading Steven Pinker's "The blank slate" after sucking the tiny bit of marrow from the giant self-inflicted boner that was Po Bronson's "What should I do with my life" and it's also a depressing book. It talks about how smart people trained in science can often allow themselves to be swayed by dogma and peer pressure. This has crippled several academic disciplines as they investigate things teleologically and come up with endless pages of theory that has no direct relationship to anything approaching reality.
Fun facts about Adam Baldwin:
He is not one of the actual Baldwin brothers but merely another actor with the last name of Baldwin.
He starred on the great show Firefly as a character named Jayne and also in "Lady Jayne: Killer" which is a movie that exists for absolutely no reason. It is a schlocky 'thriller' featuring the dubious talents of an ex-baywatch star and a guy who's career peaked playing the little brother in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." James Remar is the standout star of the project. The script is so bad that one wonders if it was written by an English speaker or some Dane who watched way too many C-grade late night Cinemax flicks. It is one of those films which exist purely to rip off people who want to see a B movie with some action and titties and are seduced into seeing a Z movie with not enough of either.
He was in Full Metal jacket.
He is an alumnus of New Trier Township High School East, Winnetka, IL.
