Has everyone forgotten the Bones episode where the Squints waited in line the whole episode to see Avatar?

I'm sure that's why the movie was so successful.
And you remember that the revolving squint they had that week was one of the actors from Avatar?

It seemed more like a personal injoke/favour rather than the suits were conspiring.
Wasn't he a regular rotating squint before he was on Avatar?
Yes, he sure was.

It may have been an in-joke for all I know, but it was still product placement. Hilarious product placement, but still product placement.

There was a very awkward example on True Blood last night: A close up of a Campbell's soup bowl rotating in a microwave.

Re: Warehouse 13 Season 4 (discussion, spoilers)

the worst product placement was in the Warehouse 13 webseries. the one where they get zapped into an old 50s EC-esq comic.

Who played the crazy woman in this weeks (no pain no gain) episode? She looks extremely familiar.

Re: Warehouse 13 Season 4 (discussion, spoilers)

When I saw Tim Omundson and Kristin, both from Psych, I really wondered... Are these two a couple?

But then they had kaylee and the Doctor from firefly, then they had Jo and Zane from Eureka, so they really do like to pick up sets from their competitors.

Well, I'm 100% pro-choice, and even I was disturbed by this episodes magical pregnancy and magical spontaneous partial-birth (her water broke!) abortion.

Re: Warehouse 13 Season 4 (discussion, spoilers)

Yeah, I wasn't too sure about that one either. But then I realized: that implies the artifact is powerful enough to create life. Do you think it is?

If not, then she would have given birth to a magical sack of feathers or something and that would be the end of it. Even wish fulfilment can only go so far. In that case the subject of abortion may not apply... except for the characters' intent....

It would make an interesting side discussion with all sides of the abortion debate chiming in. But, ya know, not here.

Watching this episode I suddenly had the urge to go buy a fuel efficient car. I mean, it would have BING and everything.

Yeah. It was. I've seen it happen in a couple of other basic cable shows. In this day and age of DVR, they got to get the advertising bucks somehow, I guess.

i really hope they aren't going to try and make Pete and Mika a couple. they were so much better as they are currently. they're like brother and sister.
