When McG was doing Terminator Salvation interviews last week at Wondercon, we saw our chance to ask him a question that has been plaguing our minds for ages. McG has produced two science fiction/fantasy TV series: Chuck and Supernatural. And both shows feature a protagonist who drops out of Stanford, due to his encounter with something bizarre or other-worldly. So what's with the Stanford obsession? Says McG, "It's a Berkeley affinity."
So there you have it — if you go to UC Berkeley, you won't have your girlfriend lit on fire on the ceiling, or get accused of cheating to disguise the fact that your brain is uniquely suited to being a human computer. They should totally put that on the recruitment brochures.
