Adventures in Pedantry: Fringe's Captain Windmark Can’t Be A Toe-Tapper - my latest at +Scientific American

The inference we are meant to make is this: despite the genetic alterations that gave The Observers their advanced intellect at the expense of their emotions, even Windmark can’t escape his humanity. Underneath all the tech and all the genetic engineering, he can still be moved by a piece of music. Maybe, then, he isn’t hunting down our heroes solely because it’s the rational thing to do. Maybe he hates them. Even The Observers can’t outrun their emotions.

Here’s the problem. The Observers should not be able to dance.
