"Bones" at the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Anyone else watch "Bones"?

The most recent episode "The Predator In The Pool" was filmed at the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Just thought it was interesting how they worked in some of the things they did like a new use for our RO filters!

nice RO, eh?

I wonder if an RO could actually work like that in real life.... no pressure and "instantaneously". Also...
could an RO membrane just remove dye from vodka (grain alcohol) or were the producers taking out some artistic liberties?

another question

I overheard somebody saying there's a website you where you can view previously aired television shows. Does anybody know what I'm talking about?
(I'm not a big fan of watching TV anymore!)

Yup, my link in the first post takes you directly to that Hulu episode.

I don't have cable anymore. I have an old PC hooked up to the TV and surround system. Hulu, YouTube, Movies, etc... If I didn't need internet I could rid myself of TimeWarner once and for all!

Yeah, I know a lot of the stuff they use is just creative imagineering (photographic enhancement for instance) but I have to take offense when it's about something I have knowledge about. No one would use an R/O filter ON their system, especially not an extremely large public aquarium. That doesn't even begin to illustrate that reverse osmosis by definition requires pressure on one side and thus wouldn't work in the shown manner. A carbon filter would be more logical, but wouldn't work as completely as it's shown.
