Last week was devoted to wrapping up the first marking period project. I'm not going to comment much upon then, other than that I made some blunders.
I am now in a new group covering 'Mad Scientists and Mutant Children', or simply crazy science projects and those affected by them or people capable of atypical things for a somewhat non-fantastical reason. Probably my top favorite area of science fiction, because the stories often have more 'human' aspects, searching the mind, relationships, etc. I think most super hero stuff falls under this category too. Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider, Bruce Banner was hit with gamma rays, Tony Stark made a battle suit..
This time around is weird because I don't really know what I'm doing. Last time there was definite leadership, I mean, I'm not used to directing other people. I stay in a bubble and do what I'm needed to do.
Yesterday, as a class, we watch the Twilight Zone episode "It's a Good Life". A six year old has reality warping powers and dictates his entire world and scares all the adults witless. Fun.
My group and I began to watch The Outer Limits episode 'Blood Brothers', from the nineties reboot. I've never seen the show before but it's like Twilight Zone but more science fiction oriented. Harlan Ellison wrote a couple of the original series episodes.
So far in Blood Brothers, Spencer and Michael Kemp are two brothers, whose mother had Huntington's disease. Michael tested negative, while Spencer has not been tested. They are also working together on a cure for cancer, and they may not like each other that much.
Let's play a little game. There are three links down below. Two of them are related to mad science, and one is not. Good luck! ;)
