Mars (Sunday nights at 8/7c)

There’s a story in the paper this morning about a Dutch engineer and entrepreneur who wants to fund a mission to Mars by selling the reality TV rights. (Here.) A one-way mission to Mars. I can’t say if this is a good idea or not. I can only say that I’d watch it, at least until the astronauts got settled in for the long haul in the sort of deluxe Habitrail that the project is proposing be their home on the red planet, and then I don’t know how much of that I could take.
