I'm saying that if you haven't actually read what's someone written, and whether it's accurate or not, it's a bit much to accuse them of doing poor research, a pretty big slap to the kind of work About Time is, one heavily based on research, because (as in this case) they could've actually been right the whole damn time. Rely on other people's summaries less.
Okay, that was a poor choice of words. But the fact remains, the lines in the actual episode said nothing whatsoever about rejuvenation. That's the real point I was trying to make, and my poor choice of words was an unfortunate distraction from that.

(Actually what I was trying to do was to avoid sounding like I was blaming Allyn for the inaccuracy. I thought it would be less likely to provoke an argument if I made it clear that I wasn't directing my criticism at a fellow poster. But it backfired.)
