Garrett's own critique of the show and himself http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/wordpress/?p=2990":

Sadly, I’m no Carl Sagan.

I hope this episode isn’t terrible. I’ve only seen parts of it. I gave the producers lots of advice, and even introduced them to the Science & Entertainment Exchange. They had their own ideas and agenda though, and did their own thing. I’m mostly just hoping I don’t get What the Bleeped, or pronounced a physics prophet.

The only thing about it that I know is good is that Morgan Freeman will talk a bit about Lie groups. That I’m happy about. The God stuff, not so much.

And, err, there is a decent shot of me surfing
Rhody...

garrett, good job...
TBone, a complement that will never be acknowledged

E8 work is going well. Short paper coming soon — probably out next week.

Stupid Dish network. I'd have to subscribe to 150 more channels that I don't want in order to get the Science channel.
