  • The cool DaVinci’s Automata blog points us to this really cool Japanese anime anthology, Robot Carnival. It contains nine shorts, set mostly to music, directed by several different people. It sounds rather cool.
  • You say you’ve always wanted your own, full-size replica of the the robot from Lost in Space? You’re in luck! The team at B9Creations has created a line of replica robots that you can purchase. Check out the pics, they look great. And all for a paltry $24.5K. Danger Will Robinson, indeed. But, you do get an internal 240 watt sound system and over 500 voice tracks by Richard Tyrfeld, the voice of the original robot. Now how does that $24.5k sound?
  • Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be awesome? All the time? Then this interview with Ryan McPartlin, Captain Awesome on Chuck, is for you. He talks about what it’s like to be known as ‘Awesome’ instead of Ryan. I have to say, I find his character to be funny, a bit blind to the obvious, but still a lovable goof. He steals the scenes he’s in. Watch Chuck.
  • The new History Channel series, UFO Hunters, has been moved up. It’s new premier date is now January 30th at 9pm ET. That’s tomorrow, at 9PM ET. Set your DVRs. I know my kids have.

  1. Anybody remember Project UFO?

    Even better, The Invaders is coming to DVD!!!

  2. Project UFO? Never heard of it until now. Looks like a winner though. Not one, but two episodes featuring Dr. Joyce Brothers…

  3. The funny thing is, having just seen the last half hour or so of CE3K on TV, the model work was pretty much as good in Project UFO!
