“Occam’s Razor” (the philosophical stance that the simpler of two competing explanations is probably correct) inserted itself into consecutive nights of my prime time viewing.
First, Ned from “Pushing Daisies” invoked Occam’s Razor, just a mere tens days after I wrote a critique of the series. (Coincidence? I think… well… according to Occam’s Razor, it probably is.)
Then Thursday night, Occam’s Razor was quoted in “Grey’s Anatomy” during the diagnosis of a patient.
Seriously – what are the odds that two shows on the same network would quote the philosophical leanings of a 14th-century Franciscan monk? On back-to-back nights?
