Pseudo-Scientific Crap

3/10
Author: Ricardo FF Pontes (rffp) from Brazil

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Since the beginning of the show, I had issues with Eleventh Hour, but since I am a stubborn man, I keep watching as it sinks into nonsense.

Does Hollywood want to make a show about a scientist? OK, it is fine, but at least hire someone that has not apparently dropped out of elementary biology and chemistry classes in high school.

OK, the dead guy grew a second heart, it is freaking bizarre! That is the poetic licence of the episode. But could someone tell how blood passes through that extra heart??? Along with that heart, new veins and arteries grew too? And miraculously those new veins and arteries were connected to the previous ones? Does a med student cost that much to tell the basics to the screenwriters? My wife works in the financial department and is not a scientist. But she pointed out another terrible mistake made by the show. This girl who underwent chemotherapy has all her hair intact? How come?! Now, that is a real scientific mystery for Jacob Hoob to investigate! And if it starts bad, it generally ends worse. Rachel Young has the incumbency of protecting Jacob Hood, as she likes to point out "He is an important asset to the FBI". Then why would she play chicken with this runaway villain? Did she forget her priorities? Or was it "cool" enough to produce a scene where two girls play chicken.

This is not the first time I saw scientific mistakes in Eleventh Hour, but in this episode they were below par. It is an omen that the show is sinking.

Mangalitsas are for real

Author: tom_in_sfca from San Francisco, United States

The Mangalitsa pigs that figure prominently in this episode are for real and are being raised and sold in the United States by a company called Wooly Pigs.

Wooly Pigs was formed to produce pork equal to Europe's best.

To this end, they imported a herd of Mangalitsa, one of Europe's best tasting breeds. They also imported European techniques for raising the pigs.

Wooly Pigs is the only breeder of Mangalitsa in the New World. They imported the initial breeding stock and haven't sold any non-neutered animals. They breed in Washington and the Midwest.

Besides finishing their own pigs, Wooly Pigs sells neutered pigs to other producers. They then help these producers produce the best Mangalitsa they can.

People buy Mangalitsa because it tastes wonderful. Properly raised Mangalitsa has incomparably juicy and flavorful meat and fat.

Wooly Pigs is owned by Heath Putnam.

Before founding Wooly Pigs, Heath lived for several years in Central Europe working in software and financial analysis. He has travelled extensively throughout the region.

After experiencing Mangalitsa while in Europe, Heath decided to bring Mangalitsa to the New World, knowing that many American consumers would find it irresistible.

Wooly Pigs is based in Washington. Their Mangalitsa live in Washington and the Midwest.
