Actually a much more interesting article than I'd expect from the BBC!

It's probably got at least 14 facts wrong.

Priceless.

"It's funny because it's true." Right on target for so many comedy shows.

It's ok, it's not written by a BBC journalist.

I think that writer takes a cartoon too seriously.

That one (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0812694333/qid=1148057247/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/104-6356498-3110340?s=books&v=glance&n=283155) wasn't bad, but The Matrix and Philosophy (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/081269502X/sr=8-1/qid=1148057183/ref=pd_bbs_1/104-6356498-3110340?%5Fencoding=UTF8) was better. One of my professors next semester wrote a chapter for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Philosophy (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0812695313/qid=1148057323/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/104-6356498-3110340?s=books&v=glance&n=283155); I've never seen the series, but I'll probably have to read it for the class. :p
