Phoenix

Skullduggery

Ok, I just suffered through an hour of the highly rated Scifi Channel travesty, Mystery of the Crystal Skulls.

I was expecting this to be horrid, and much like the documentary from a decade ago on FOX, about the moon landings being faked. Don't get me started on that bunch of nonsense...

And while most of this was outright wronginess, I would've been more inclined to listen, if they didn't botch one indisuptable fact.

When talking about the crystal skulls popular culture appearances, they mentioned that it was "even in an episode of Stargate Atlantis".

Um, no. Stargate SG-1. That's simple fact checking. That's simple fact checking for one Scifi Channel show to check which other Scifi Channel show something happened on. It's mindnumbingly simple to do.

If they can't even get THAT right, why the heck should I believe they know anything else about what they're talking about?
