A Taste For Syfy and Geeks


There are a lot of great shows on television; some are brand new like Helix. Some never seem to get old like The Big Bang Theory, which  is now in its seventh season. I never getting tired of watching the antics of my favorite geeks. Last night’s episode was about Valentine’s Day and how some men just don’t get it. I’m talking about Sheldon (Jim Parsons) who is so smart that he’s dumb. Dumb to poor Amy’s (Mayim Bialik) attempts at romance.

As a Valentine treat, Amy took Sheldon on a train ride and not any old train ride. She booked dinner for four on Napa's Wine Train in Napa California. I've been on that train several times with my family and let me tell you, I was just as excited as Sheldon to ride the Napa Wine Train.

While Howard (Simon Helberg) and his sweetie, Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) enjoy the great food on the train, Amy is left to fend for herself because Sheldon finds another train fanatic to talk to. While this is going on, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) mess up big time while babysitting Rajesh's (Kunal Nayyar) dog, Cinnamon.
In the end all is well and Amy gets her kiss.

I've finally caught up with this amazing science fiction show on demand. Helix will be on tonight at 10 p.m. and I can't wait to see what happens next. I just watched the episode called "The White Room."
You're never sure who the good guys are. One of the characters, who I thought was good, Major Sergio Balleseros (Mark Ghanime) just killed another of my favorite characters, Dr. Doreen Boyle (Catherine Lemieux). Major Balleseros is under orders to find Dr. Hvit and Dr. Hatake does away with unhappy dissenters.

If this wasn't confusing enough, we finally find out what the white room is. Duh, it's the artic itself. When Major Balleseros goes outside of the compound looking for the mysterious Dr. Hvit, he finds the good doctor.

 Well sort of...Dr. Hvit's head.

Wow, it seems the Governor from "The Walking Dead" isn't the only one collecting heads. Watch the show it's well written and keeps you guessing.
