    One nasty peril facing adventurers who creak through the ice of the Arctic in their 180-ton boat is the "intense, nagging boredom" of the voyage, or so says the narrator of "Future Earth: Journey to the End of the World" on MSNBC tomorrow night. Unfortunately, as has not infrequently been the case with nature documentaries -- even the Armageddon-y ones -- boredom becomes quite a challenge for the audience, too.

    What do the producers do to meet the challenge? We'll give you three guesses. (Hint: special effects.) Okay, 10-9-8-7 -- that's right! How about, say, a shot of the 42nd Street subway station in Manhattan under water. Good heavens, what a catastrophe. And then, of course, the tediously inevitable: our beloved gigantic Statue of Liberty bobbing about in the water as if she were a mere bathtub toy.




    End Times

    Florida will be under water by 2013! :D

    I watched "Run Fat Boy Run". Does that count?
