  • How’s this for media tie-ins: Cartoon Network has secured the rights to broadcast Blue Dragon, the anime series based on the Xbox 360 video game. I haven’t played the game yet, but I want to. Not sure I want to see a show based on the game though.
  • In case you missed it: the Jim Henson Company announced on Monday that the movies The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth are now available for purchase on iTunes. Perhaps even more exciting: Farscape and Fraggle Rock are on the way!

The world they inhabit is pretty unique and a mix of sci-fi and fantasy (although perhaps the magic has a technology basis I’m not aware of.)

  3. WOW, that blog post on LOST is crazy! I have never seen anyone go that in depth to an episode of LOST. And yet I am still LOST 😉
