Wtf...get over it. The Dukes of Hazard are an icon and there is nothing wrong with the flag. Just because a couple people don't like it, they pull it. Well, I don't like Muslim's, now are you going to send them back to their country? NOOOOOO, so leave the flag alone and let the poeple who don't like it bitch at a wall.

Proof Season 1 Episode 3 Review: Showdown

If you read Brian Weiss' "Through Time into Healing", the issue of concurrent past life memories is extremely common. He talked of several families he regressed (each person independently) and they would all go to the same life where the issues in this life arose. That's because we are in "soul groups" and constantly reincarnate in different roles for one another. I find Proof extremely accurate in its relationship to the extensive literature on this entire subject. I would not be surprised if they are using actual case histories.

I think my personal problem with the concept of God comes from organized religion, which seems to cause a lot more problems than it solves. There was a science fiction book I read called Caclucating God that made such a great argument for a greater power it was hard to refute. Kind of like the movie Cintact and the simple concept of us alone in the universe being a waste of space. My research did help, but I still have a hard time letting go of the preordained concepts of religion and spirituality, so my real issue may not be as big as I think! I really hope Proof pushes the envelope, too. I like where it's gone so far. I don't think I'll be able to review it next week because I fly out of town at an indecent hour on Tuesday morning, but I'll be back the next week. I love this show!

Now that you mention it, I have done some reading on the subject when I was going through a particularly difficult patch. Not by that fellow, that I'm aware, but the idea that we all know each other and carry on, helping each other grow, even going to far as to choose to the paths of our souls in order to help those we love grow (like a soul that would choose to go into a baby that would die during childbirth, for instance) stood out to me at the time. The soul would want to be a part of that experience for what it might help those it loves achieve. It really helped me through some dark times. And yet, I can't bring myself to believe in God. It's why I identify so deeply with Cat's struggle.

Carissa, maybe I can help you. God = Love, Love = God.
I believe in reincarnation, and past-life regression would be an excellent therapeutic tool. I can identify with Cat, too, as there was a time when I questioned the existence of God. Cat is of science (medicine) and her mind works analytically (reminds me of Sheldon's conversations with his mom on Big Bang Theory). When science and spirituality (note I did not say religion) can come together, then all will be well.
We all go thru 'dark' times and most of us seek an answer spiritually. I hope your search helped you in your difficult time.
I'd like to see how far Proof is willing to push the envelope.
Apologies if I 'pushed the envelope'.

I agree! Organized religion is simply a control program to keep the populace in fear. We should never be afraid of God. Spirituality is wide-open. Did you ever hear the phrase "all paths lead to God" (or whatever name you choose)? That, to me, says no path is neither right or wrong. We are all on our correct paths whether we realize it or not.
Contact is one of my favorite movies; based on Carl Sagan's 1985 book; he was way ahead of his time.
I will miss your review next week. Be looking forward to your next review of this great show!
EDIT: The first sentence of my comment is my opinion only.

I LOVE this cast ♡ ♡ , I can't imagine next season's bloopers without Nina :(
I'm still not over her leaving.

They are going way to far with this whole flag issue. I mean what if that was the American Flag you going to do the same thing? I seriously doubt it. So get over it already, what's done is done. It wasn't the flag that was the problem, it was the person holding the flag!!

Scream Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Pilot

I agree wholeheartedly with this article. It was very well executed and dark, which I really liked. I also agree with the mask in that it's creepy. While watching the premiere last night I thought the EXACT same thing in that it's going to be like PLL. I didn't really end up connecting with the characters and honestly didn't care either way if they died or lived. I was a little disappointed that only one person died. They even threw a party which is prime killing ground in slasher movies! Oh well, I still liked it and will watch it.

Thanks. I can't wait for the rest of the season!

They should not stop selling items or take flag down . This is way out of hand. The flag is not rasist. Period the end.

Proof Season 1 Episode 3 Review: Showdown

What was unbelievable to me was how far the show's writers would go to insert a gay agenda into this episode. The 2 soldiers who regressed to the Korean war together just happened to be gay partners...one of whom had been unable to say "I love you" to his partner before he died????

@ Cat

I agree it wasn''t necessary but given what I wrote above, the draw as to why they reconnected in this life might have to do with the closeness of the relationship. We tend to reincarnate with those who were important to us. The intensity of emotions about the event in the show lend to the outcome depicted.

@ kenkap

But then I don't believe in reincarnation. And in response to Carissa, then why did the dying guy keep wanting the other guy to say the words "I Love You" and why was the other guy repeating "I can't...I can't...I can't"????

@ Cat

I didn't get the impression they were necessarily "gay partners," but that through the intensity of war they developed strong feelings for one another. Having never been shot at and watched my friends die on a daily basis, I can't say what it would do to me, but I'm guessing it would push my boundaries quite a bit.

@ Carissa Pavlica

They were definitely gay. It was not really ambiguous. That's why the one soldier said he'd been a coward - because of the era and military scenario, he was too afraid to admit his love for a man. That was the entire point of reconciling the seemingly incompatible "memories" of the two men. One man's memories showed the other as a hero, while the other man kept insisting his memories showed him as a coward.

@ Margarethe

I don't feel the need to put labels on feelings like that. Extraordinary circumstances lead to extraordinary events. They found each other and it took another lifetime to reconcile those feelings. We don't know anything else about them.
