Nitpicking...

So, I was just watching Homer's Triple Bypass for about the 50th time and I noticed an error in the final scene. After the operation, Homer's heart is beating away strongly, and we get a nice internal view of it. Except, the vena cava are red in colour while the aorta is blue, suggesting that Homer's heart is pumping in the opposite direction! That's what you get with Dr. Nick, I suppose.

Anyway, I'm less than two months into this and I'm already finding the more questionable things on "serious" dramas like House intolerable. It's most distressing. :\

There's no going back, man. They're ruined forever. You know, unless the characters are actually going to start following protocols.

*shakes head with sorrowful expression*

I'm going to be waiting a long time for that. House is probably the *most* accurate medical drama, and certainly the least melodramatic (which is really saying something).

But House is supposed to break all the rules anyway, no?

Josh G said...

Yes, but he's supposed to do that for *smart* reasons. Comprising surgical asepsis isn't one of those.

Noooo~ Now we can never watch that show with you, for fear of you shattering the illusion of House and his perfectly plausible detective work. (Not to mention his perfectly plausible support team.)

The strange thing is that I actually seek out the show *more* often now regardless. The bit I saw of yesterday's wasn't that great... yet I was still watching!

Anyway, I saw some cool stuff today and listened to a lot of jargon. I'll have to tell you more!
