Carnotaurus on Heroes!

January 23rd, 2007 by Mike Keesey :: see related comic

I have to admit I’ve gotten a little addicted to the TV show Heroes. Nice to see everbody’s favorite hero, Hiro, face off against a Carnotaurus tonight (sort of).

Although he was supposed to be in the American Museum of Natural History, I’m pretty sure that was the Los Angeles Museum of Natural History (which also starred as a genetic research lab in Spider-Man) dressed up a bit.

I too have to admit an addiction to Heroes; I’d never seen it until NBC had it online, then I watched all of the 2006 episodes in one night.

It was great to see a theropod other than T. rex getting some attention, too bad the overdubbing on the Carnotaurus video mentioned something about “the T. rex was a fiersome predator” (paraphrased).

And yes, Hiro is my hero… dude’s a riot!!! ((>.

Yeah, although I think that might have been a Tyrannosaurus during that narration. It was hard to see, though. (Well, I have it on tape, so….)

Actually, that dinosaur in the video is supposed to be an Aucasaurus garridoi. The video is taken from the Discovery Channel’s awesome mini-series “Dinosaur Planet” Check it out here: http://dsc.discovery.com/convergence/dinosaurplanet/interactive/dinoviewer.html

Ahh, good catch. Well, an egregious error, then—but, eh, I still like the show.

I’m impressed, I must say. Really not often do I encounter a blog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your concept is outstanding; the difficulty is something that not enough individuals are speaking intelligently about. I’m very joyful that I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.

Hadiaz- I can take a look into it, but even just with my communications with the book’s prlibsheus would lead me to take Dr. Hone’s answer of no.What I think Brian Switek means in that quote is it captures VISUALLY in art all that stuff. Not in technical science or writing.Remember that information can be spread and communicated in more than one way. The artists they have gathered for this book do more than just draw pretty Dinosaurs into generic backgrounds. Typcially they’ve done painsaking research and crafted the whole composition to tell us about the broader world of the Dinosaurs. The plants and very landscape are based on our best understanding of these things from the science. I doubt they would go into how that information came about (as they didn’t originally discover it), they’ll probably be discussing how they took that information and turned it into art.Granted I haven’t gotten the book yet, but this is what everyone from these other reviewers to the book’s creators have been leading me to believe.I’ll let you know for sure once I have the book.

Secara umum mereka berpikir tentara Jepang datang ke Indonesia untuk menjajah.Saya kira hal ini wajar karena ada perbedaan cara berpikir antara orang Indonesia dan orang Jepang. Saya pernah tinngal di Jepang dan saya merasakan adanya perbedaan cara berpikir tersebut.Disamping itu juga ada bagian sejarah yang berbeda ceritanya dalam buku-buku pelajaran sekolah.Semoga saja generasi muda bisa mempelajari sejarah masa lalu dengan sebaik-baiknya, karena suatu saat nanti saya yakin hubungan Indonesia-Jepang akan menemui masa-masa gemilang.Akan lebih baik lagi jika ada tukar-menukar arsip sejarah masa lalu dan dipublikasikan secara umum baik melalui film, buku, maupun media lainya.
