Fluffer

Season 2, Episode 3 of New Girl is titled “Fluffer,” and without getting into the details, it reminds me that I ended two friendships for the same “fluffer” reason, I just didn’t know there was a name for it.

Limitless tv series: What does CJC stand for?

When watching the Limitless tv series, I always wondered what the CJC was. I knew it’s supposed to be some sort of FBI office in New York, but I thought they never explained what “CJC” stands for. Then today, when I had the fourth episode playing while I was doing dishes, I saw that CJC stands for Cross Jurisdictional Command, as shown in this image.

Update: After some more googling, I’ve read that the CJC is a fictional office, meaning that there really is no such thing as a CJC office in New York city. So, that case is solved. :)

(In slightly-related news, Limitless is also one of my favorite tv series that lasted only one season.)

Lots of radiation, and The Incredible Hulk tv series

In the next month I’m going to have a CT scan, an MRI, radioactive iodine, gamma radiation, more radiation, then more radiation. So it seemed fitting that I should buy The Incredible Hulk tv series DVD set. :)

Back in the day, this series was influential on me, and I was very aware of its influence. After moving out of Chicago we lived in a small town, and this series opened my eyes to the possibility of just wandering around and living a vagabond lifestyle.

When I was young I used to think, “How do I know where I should live? Where’s ‘home’? Maybe I should just wander around until I find a place that feels right.” That may sound unusual — it seems like most people want to settle down in one place — but I feel fortunate to have lived in many towns and many states, and gotten to know people in all of those places.

Why is Captain Push on Medium often drinking out of a water bottle?

I love the Captain Push character on Medium, his chemistry with Allison (Patricia Arquette) is really excellent. One thing I was always curious about it why Captain Push is often shown drinking water out of a water bottle. He does this in the early episodes, and then does it again in the Season 3 episode, “Apocalypse, Push,” which I just watched. I just google’d to see if I could find the answer, but I couldn’t find anything. Hopefully one day I’ll run into Arliss Howard and I’ll be able to ask him about it. :)

The Greatest American Hero: My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys

It’s funny, I never expected that I’d ever write about the tv series, The Greatest American Hero, but I watched an episode last night that was pretty good, especially when you consider it was made in 1981.

Season 1, Episode 6 of The Greatest American Hero is titled, “My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys,” and for me it’s the most touching episode yet. Bill (the FBI agent) learns that his personal hero is involved in something illegal, and it’s a real blow to him. He’s hurt, and then down in the dumps.

Meanwhile, Ralph, The Greatest American Hero, has two incidents where innocent bystanders are almost hurt while he’s attempting to go after the bad guys. One group is a busload of tourists, and the second one is an elderly woman. This affects him to the point that he doesn’t want to put the suit on any more, because he’s afraid he’ll hurt innocent people.
