"Surrogates" ** (out of four): Like the titular avatars in this graphic novel adaptation, "Surrogates" is a rote whodunit masquerading as a techno-thriller.
There are some interesting ideas rattling around inside "Surrogates", Jonathan Mostow's serviceable graphic novel adaptation, and they're all packed into the first five minutes. During an impressively expository title sequence, we are brought up-to-speed on the events of the past fourteen years. It seems the pursuit of brain-controlled artificial limbs has led to the invention of full-sized prosthetic bodies that can leave the house and perform daily tasks while their human owners (or "operators") lay at home on comfortable recliners wearing high-tech goggles. In the fourteen years since the introduction of these "surrogates", human beings have stopped going outside. Crime, racism and disease have all but vanished (for some reason).

Did you see the commercial where John McEnroe repeats his famous catch phrase?
Yeah, I liked that one too.
It's just, I think I've seen it before.
More than once.
You know what, I'm right.
This radio ad was Glenn Beck's first television appearance, in 1986.
The ad summarizes in 30 seconds most of what you need to know about the first 15 years of Beck's radio career.
"A couple days after Kelly's wife, Terry, had a miscarriage, Beck called her live on the air and says, 'We hear you had a miscarriage,' " remembers Brad Miller, a former Y95 DJ and Clear Channel programmer. "When Terry said, 'Yes,' Beck proceeded to joke about how Bruce [Kelly] apparently can't do anything right -- about he can't even have a baby."
