Tube Bits For 12/06/2007

  • If you need a limo, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire The A Team Limo! Now you can be chauffeured around in your very own replica A Team van for your next night on the town. Although I’m not sure Hannibal would approve of the 6 plasma TV’s or full bar. Being drunk makes it hard for a plan to come together. Then again, that may explain Murdock’s behavior. Can anyone explain to me why this service is in England? Was the A Team a big hit over there? Oh, and I want one. Oh again. If you’re wondering why this is on a science fiction blog, I defy you to come up with a rational explanation for why case loads of ammunition could be discharged each episode, and no one got hit.
  • IGN sits down with Futurama writer/producer David Cohen and talk about Bender’s Big Score. They cover the differences between the movie and TV episodes, taking SF seriously in a comedy show, and a bunch of other stuff. I’m going to have to buy me some Bender’s Big Score. And remember, Everybody loves Hypnotoad!
  • Chalk up another independent SF series that is on the internet. Out Of Darkness is a SF cop drama that is trying to move into the broadcast space by seeking a recognizable face for it’s lead character. Currently, the show airs on DirecTV and Time Warner, and you can see some of their output on YouTube. It’s billed as being in the vein of The X-Files. I haven’t really watched any of it, I was more interested in how technology and the internet are making things like this easier for people to put together and promote.
  • Sadly, not all Cylons look like Tricia Helfer or Grace Park (sorry Tim!). So how can you tell when the person you are dealing with is a Cylon? Why with Forbidden Planet’s How to spot a Cylon poster of course! And while you’re there, check out the Blue Sun Travel posters for places from around the ‘Verse.
  • Now you can win fabulous prizes for supporting the writers during the writers’ strike. Ron Moore is offering a chance to win prizes to those who donate at Pencils2MediaMoguls. If you send pencils to the moguls running the big media companies, you could win: a night at a hockey game with Chief Tyrol, a phone call from Mary McDonnell, Tricia Helfer (Hellooooo nurse!), or Michael Trucco, or, the grand prize, one of three towels actually worn by Jamie Bamber on set. Moore also hints that other fabulous prizes are may appear in the future.
