Anyone Watching TV in the US Tonight?

Over on Bioephemera, Jessica took some time out from her wrestling practice to eulogize over this advert, for a national Geographic programme that is on tonight in the US:


You know Jessica was enthused when she has to pull out with this:

Ok, now I’m re-envisioning LOTR as an extended metaphor for fertilization. Not good. Moving on. . .

Unfortunately, this prompted me to bastardize some poetry. Here’s the improved version:

One egg to rule them all, one egg to call them
One egg to find them all, and in the darkness bind them
In the land of Fallopius, where the shadows lie.

I would give it in the original, but I don’t know what is “egg” in the Black Speech of Mordor.
If anyone is going to watching the programme, could you live-tweet the experience so the rest of us can enjoy the fun later, please.
EDIT: Ooh! There’s a webpage for the programme, including a game:

Just in case size matters, you can play the game here too.

    I checked the Nat Geo channel schedule, and the program will be on during my usual dog-walking time, so I’ll DVR it and watch it later this week. I don’t have a Twitter account, so no live-tweeting, sorry!
    I already took one for the team, though, as when I turned on the TV to set it to record, there was a program about exorcism on the NGC. Bibles pressed to the foreheads of demoniacs, screaming and writhing, cross-waving, cries of “Out Satan!”, the whole nine yards. Ugh.

    Sorry, Bob – although that channel (like many US channels) is available in Canada, I’m busy watching the Vancouver Canucks destroy the Calgary Flames instead. I can live-tweet that if you’re interested in blow-out games, crushing victories, and humiliation at the hands of your biggest rivals instead of sperm.

    I will try to check this out tonight, though I don’t tweet so no live play-by-play of my opinions.
    Drats, I just remembered that the Nat. Geo station got dropped from our local lineup by Comcast recently!
    I am no help at all
