Culture by numb3rs

I just watched Friday’s episode of Numb3rs, which was a blatant unsubtle pitch for tying yourself in to your cultural heritage, as the show’s lovely California-raised Indian gal goes quickly from being a steadfast Californian to needing to immerse hersel in the culture and land of India.

But, at the end of the show, the Jewish central characters sign up to be organ donors… and not a peep is made about how organ donation is against Jewish tradition, that it will keep you out of proper Jewish cemetaries, and so forth.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m not big into the cultural heritage thing, and I am a big fan of organ donation. But when you choose to do a message script and try to send two messages, it would be nice if you recognized that those messages are in conflict.
