  • Amazon Unbox and NBC have teamed up to bring you free pilot episodes of Bionic Woman, Chuck and Journeyman. You’ll also get a tast of Amazon’s Unbox service. I know I’ll be trying it out, even if they don’t offer HD. Heck they’re free, why not try it?
  • The latest Amazon Wire podcast is an interview with Joss Whedon. They cover the usual stuff, but also manage to discuss women in SF and some Galactica. Good stuff.
  • Last November, Microsoft launched its video download service for the Xbox 360. While I’ve look at the content (surprisingly broad), I haven’t actually downloaded anything yet. Well, Microsoft is in talks with the BBC to provide programming for the service. This would mean shows like Dr. Who, Torchwood and Hyperdrive might become available for our European friends.
  • Did you know that Cartoon Network will be airing new, animated Transformers episodes? (See the trailers here.) Toys R Evil has a ridiculously long look at the toys that will be produced to go along with the new show. Wow. Just, wow.
  • Pink Ray Gun gives us the Top 100 Fictional Femmes Of Genre Film And Television. Did I miss something or is #1 a comic book character and not from film or TV? Otherwise, a very nice list indeed.
