Scorpion Season 1 Episode 1: "Pilot"




(I'm not sure if she has been in a post yet so this is one of the Doctor's Companions and her name is Rose)

Anyways, I'm working on a post about the Doctor who Christmas special but for now I'm going try another one about Scorpion!

Ok so I'm not saying the physics are wrong (ok, maybe not COMPLETELY wrong) but lets just talk this out and you can decide for yourself.

What really gets me is the connection between the two cords in the video, you can see it if you pause the video around 1:20.

It is COMPLETELY vertical. There is no way the connection is strong to hold together against the force of the plane pulling upward as it begins to climb again. Even as Paige moves the computer upward the plane would have created much too strong of an upward force against the downward pull of the lower connector. The cords SHOULD have separated. There's also the fact that when she gets pulled forward by the laptop the cords stay together even though one is pulling Paige's weight and the other is being dragged upward by a plane.

I also find it a bit strange that Paige can stand up in a car without a top driving at speeds in excess of 100 mph and not be the least bit wavered. She shows absolutely no signs of being affected by the force of the air pushing back on her as the car moves forward. She stretches in higher to hold on to the lap top. With the amount of force created by the air surrounding the car and the lack of anything to keep her grounded, she probably should have flown out of the car and landed on the runway behind it.

Oh well, I guess that is just TV for you, they could never kill a main character in the first episode in the name of accuracy. Anyway, thanks for reading!
