When explaining the Uncanny Valley, his example of a robot that's human enough not to hit the other side of the valley is... Keanu Reeves.
This pre-Escapist episode. James sets up his own podium next to Daniel for the episode, and just after he clears his throat... Daniel swipes his papers away from him and goes on with it. And then after he reads the subject out loud, James throws his podium at Daniel.
It gets funnier as no one could hear what he said, and after Allison told him that, he removed the head, scaring Lee Lee. Afterwards, he threw the head at her. She catches it, the same look glued to her face the entire time.
