Nerd TV alert: A Life in Memory, Science Channel, 10/19 9pm ET
According to the promos, about being able to wipe unpleasant memories out of your mind. I was thinking in terms of unnecessary earworms, but according to the channel's website, they have more unpleasant things in mind:
"Barney recalls the day he was hit by a car: his back was broken, and his wife was killed. Today, he will be given a pill to erase the memory of that tragic day for good. At a treatment center in Montreal, PTSD patients are given a second chance at life."
http://science.discovery.com/tv-schedules/special.html?... (No further details there, but a complete listing of rebroadcast times).

This sounds considerably less fun than what the promo promised, but it ought to be interesting nevertheless. Regardless, head's up.
