Regular Show: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH!


I love that video. I don't watch the show but the first time I saw this, I laughed for a good 5-10 minutes just watching it over and over again. I do that all the time.

Just watched the first episode of Netflix's House of Cards series. I was won over in the first 5 minutes, right after the beautiful shot they had of Nationals Park in the opening.

Kevin Spacey has been great so far, as well as all the supporting actors. What I really like is not only the promising premise, but the likelyhood that the success of this show will lead to more HBO-esque/HBO quality online-only TV shows in the future. The production values boasted also bode well for the upcoming Arrested Development series on Netflix. Awesome!

Also, it was filmed in Maryland (Baltimore and Harford County), which is a big thumbs up for me.

Kevin Spacey was amazing in American Beauty.  I'd watch House of Cards but for my severe allergy to non-sports TV

You could probably call Spacey's character's mastery of politics and political corruption a "sport".

Also L.A. Confidential was the movie that made me a Kevin Spacey fan. GREAT movie.

Apparently I get BBC America in my cable sub now.  Doctor Who marathon today aww yeah!

BBC America regularly airs reruns of STAR TREK: the next generation on Saturdays and sometimes other days.  They have been airing a marathon of the last episodes in the final season today.  The two-hour series final (Season 7, Episodes 25-26, May 1994) is on tonight from 9:00 pm to 11:00 pm.



Apparently, the actors were all signed to 8 seasons, and the ratings were good, but the producers cancelled it anyway, hoping to make more money with a movie and 2 other Trek TV series.

if you are a top gear fan and a facebook user, "like" jeremy, richard, and james' facebook pages.  They seem to spend most of each day posting pictures of each other, with pretty good captions.

‘Star Trek’: Watch every episode
to celebrate William Shatner’s birth




Beginning Friday March 22, 2013 and running through March 31, 2013 the video streaming service Hulu is making every episode of the original “Star Trek” television series and all its offshoots — including “The Next Generation,” “Deep Space 9,” “Voyager” and “Enterprise” — available free for online viewing to celebrate William Shatner’s birthday. The actor who played Captain Kirk in the original series and in several subsequent movies turned 82 Friday.  Fans have their work cut out for them: There are 693 episodes in all and just nine days to watch them. Go to:
http://www.hulu.com/search?q=star+trek

For anyone interested in help navigating the “Star Trek” universe, Hulu has created a mini-playlist of episodes grouped together thematically.

Kirk Outsmarts Computers is a six-episode set that shows Shatner’s tough-guy facing off against technology (and inevitably gaining the upper hand) http://www.hulu.com/browse/picks/star-trek-man-vs-machine

Star Trek’s” Favorite Trouble Maker" groups 11 episodes that feature the villain-turned-anti-hero Q in “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Deep Space Nine” and “Voyager.”
http://www.hulu.com/browse/picks/star-trek-favorites-q

Hulu also created playlists that feature:
The Borg 
http://www.hulu.com/browse/picks/star-trek-favorites-borg-101
Alternate realms
http://www.hulu.com/browse/picks/star-trek-other-earths
Holodeck malfunctions
http://www.hulu.com/browse/picks/star-trek-favorites-holodeck-malfunctions

The incarnations of “Star Trek” are always available to Hulu Plus subscribers who pay $7.99 a month for premium content. But every once in a while, the company decides to “unlock” some of its content to non-subscribers for a limited time.

Literally looking at the clock every thirty seconds now. 90 minutes until Game of Thrones S3!  Odd, Easter night plus against TWD finale. Thank heaven for DVRs.

It comes on FX on Wednesday nights at 10 p.m.

It's about a married American couple who really are Russian Spys. Takes place in the 80's in the DC/MD area.

Mads Mikkelsen is a great actor, so I'll check it out.
