Television again!

Ok, last post about inconsistencies in the new Terminator show, seriously.

Conversation between John, Sarah, Cameron, and Charlie.

Charlie: [about Derek Reese] He needs a transfusion.
Cameron: Sarah's O-, the universal donor
Charlie: It doesn't matter, he needs at least 3 units of his own type, AB- [...]
[...]
John: Test my blood. Test me.
[...]
[Later we see, John donating blood to Derek]

Yes, as someone with O-type blood, Sarah can't be the mother of John, who has (apparently) AB-. Unless of course, some weird mutations are involved. Which wouldn't be THAT surprising, considering that John's father was a time traveler.

Speaking of time travelers, the newest Doctor Who series on BBC is fantastic. Especially the 2nd series finale with a particularly hilarious conversation between the Daleks and the Cybermen:

Dalek: Identify yourself.
Cyberman: You will identify first.
Dalek: State your identity.
Cyberman: You will identify first.
Dalek: Identify.
Mickey: (aside) It's like Stephen Hawking meets the speaking clock.
Cyberman: That is illogical. You will modify.
Dalek: Daleks do not take orders.
Cyberman: You have identified as Daleks.
Dalek: Outline resembles the inferior species known as Cybermen.

[...]

Cyberman: Our species are similar, though your design is inelegant.
Dalek: Daleks have no concept of elegance.
Cyberman: This is obvious.

[...]

Dalek: You propose an alliance?
Cyberman: This is correct.
Dalek: Request denied.
Cybermen: Hostile elements will be deleted.
[They fire, Dalek's shield holds up.]
Dalek: EXTERMINATE!
[Dalek fires, Cybermen fall.]

Cyberman: [...] Daleks be warned. You have declared war on the cybermen.
Dalek: This is not war; this is pest control.
Cyberman: We have five million cybermen. How many are you?
Dalek: FOUR.
Cyberman: You would destroy the Cybermen with four Daleks?
Dalek: We would destroy the Cybermen with ONE Dalek. You are superior in only one respect.
Cyberman: What is that?
Dalek: You are better at dying.
