OT - CBS Show "Intelligence" Makes Disparaging Comment About Rice
This evening I was watching the new CBS show "Intelligence" - kind of a dramatic version of "Chuck. In the episode, the cyberhero and his team are attempting to locate a Syrian engineer with aeronautical background. The lead scientist suggests that she might be located by reviewing where she went to school - such as Cal Tech, MIT, or maybe even Rice. His son asks with incredulity "Rice?" to which the Dad replies "Don't be a snob, son." I guess we need to check to see if any of the script writers are from MIT, which was identified as her school.

The line implies that Rice is a notch below Caltech and MIT, but to be in the conversation is at least a small compliment. If they wanted drastic contrast they could do much worse.

Was it not feeding into what school is that? Wouldn't consider it a shot at the academics.

Maybe it was the way he said it that was perceived as disparaging? The dialogue in NOLA's OP sounded complementary to me, since the lead scientist put Rice in the intellectual company of MIT & Caltech (as it should be).

The video's online here: http://www.cbs.com/shows/intelligence/video/ (Season 1, Episode 4)

The Rice reference is at about 21:30-21:40 ... after a couple of 5-packs of commercials. It didn't sound that bad to me. I'm glad the script writers thought it would be appropriate and clever to include Rice among MIT, Caltech and ETH.

Mike, I think the Father's response about not being a snob was suggesting that the son was questioning Rice's inclusion with the other schools. At least, that is the way I took it and the tweeted apology seems to confirm it. Hey, it's all tongue-in-cheek and getting mentioned on a network show is unusual.
