They let the Canadian writers slip a bit this week. We don't have any "Leftenants" in the US! My spell checker can't even figure out how to spell it that way. ;)


Considering it's spelled "Lieutenant" regardless of how it's pronounced I'd say it's the same word. Any country still using "The Queen's English" pronounces "Lieutenant" as "Leftenant".

Just power-watched the first four episodes and I like it so far. I especially enjoy seeing some 'old friends' from other recent Syfy shows.

It takes place in Canada. What's the issue?

OH! Somehow I thought it was in Seattle or some place Northwest US. I just looked on Wikipedia. It is in Vancouver. Then it makes perfect sense to use the British pronounciation.

Yup. Takes place in Vancouver, however she tried to pass herself off at first as a Portland police officer.

The problem I am having with this show is that they are killing off so many civilians with no thought of future repercusions. If you believe everyone is connected somehow, then killing several people an episode would change the future dramatically.

Even with the above, if you throw out any reasoning about time travel, the show is entertaining. :)

We watched 2 or 3 episodes of season 1 before it lost our interest. Glad it'll be back, though. We might give it a second go.

This is exactly what happens when you drop acid. No kidding.

Humans survive in their environment by constantly predicting the near future, often subconsciously "if I want to turn right here I will need to turn the steering wheel at a point in time just this far into the near future". They also rely on past experience to guide them "I know just when and how much to turn the steering wheel because I have done this before". Daily existence is a balancing act of constant prediction of the near future and constantly relying on history. We can't really do much about what is happening in the present other than endure it, so we survive mostly by concentrating on predicting the very near future and relying on what we have already learned in the past; we pretty much ignore the present because we have no control over it and we need to pay attention to constantly predicting the near future and constantly relying on what the past has given us, to survive.

When you drop acid, the past ceases to exist for you (your ability to regard it is impaired), and the future ceases to exist for you (same impairment). You can only regard and react to the present. This is why that experience is so profound; it is completely different than everything else we know and do. I do not recommend trying it, however. The stronger the dose, the less you can regard the past and the future. If you take enough to impair them completely, you become a quivering mass, unable to function at any level other than autonomic (respiration and heartbeat). This is sort of an indicator of how important those two processes (prediction and referral to past experience) actually are for us to survive.

Technically the present is of course the only one of the three that actually exists, making the above quoted statement sort of a "Captain Obvious" pronouncement, but we know the future will exist, which is why we need to predict it constantly (at least the very near future) and we know the past did exist, which is why we can still draw on those experiences to guide us through the present, and into the future, even though it will still only be the present for us.

It is pretty ironic that the past (relying on what we know) is important, the future (prediction of) is important, but the only one of the three that actually exists, the present, isn't really important to us at all.

Leftenant is the proper way to pronounce the British version (which was first) of Lieutenant. Much like Colonel in English and Coronel in Spanish. I've often wondered why "Colonel" is pronounced "kernel" in English.

Right. I'm just saying that the writers aren't ignoring the issue.

Uh...

Yeah. Many moons ago. In the interests of full disclosure, and since I still have never lied on the internet (believe or don't), I must admit I have. Not proud of it, and wished I never did, actually. Had trouble finding my keys and my shoes for a couple years there.

You know you may have chosen the wrong path when you go into one room to check the time so you can set a clock in the other room, but by the time you get there you forget what the first clock says...eight times in a row (just one example of what really happened). Thankfully, that was temporary........I think. And that did not happen under the influence, that was what things were like after not being under the influence for some time. Again, I recommend against that. Be curious, but best be curious about something else.

It does seem to answer certain universal questions we all have about the universe, but we will all probably get those answers in due time anyway.

But then that explains a lot, doesn't it :grin:

It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

So far, this second season, in my opinion, is stinking up the airwaves.

 

It seems to have lost the plot.

We stopped watching two or three episodes into the first season.

I'm a little lost this season.  But for some reason, either my series link somehow changed, or syfy changed their air date information.  Only the first episode recorded.  It took me until this week to figure it out, then try to find out how many I have missed.  Was last night ep3 or 4 of this season?   I had to record one VOD and then I got last nights back on the recording schedule.

 

Some of my confusion is from not being sure if I have seen them all in order or not.  The rest is because the plot is strange now.
