I'm trying to think of PP in the original. Hmm, a rotary dial phone? Hai Karate aftershave? Bell bottom dress pants?

Obviously Mac either wasn't interested or they didn't cough up enough. It's (mostly) all about volume with film producers.

Nah, it's all about the touch-screen table! Everything works with the touch-screen table!

I wouldn't mind the product placement so much if it weren't such an obvious commercial. It is quite annoying, and while I don't consider H50 to be all that good, it breaks up the rythm of the show. This applies to other shows that have done it in the recent past.

The microsoft stuff just isn't seemless when used in the show, and I am not trying to bash them at all for the paid placement.

I watch for the beach babes!

Interesting to see all the ex-BSG actors on the different shows too... one's on Hawaii 5-O, two are on Arctic Air, one was just on Doyle's Republic.
