Weekly Video Clip: Tobias Funke

Welcome to a new addition on the blog: the Weekly Video Clip, or WVC.  This is, obviously, where I put a video on the blog.  Also, we reserve the right to show more than one clip a week.  Plus, if you can think of a better than that “Weekly Video Clip” do give me the suggestion.

You Tube is a great thing because it allows us to see clips of things that we thought we might never see again, like great old commercials. It is also a venue for people to show their creativity with editing.

So, to start of this feature off, here is one of my favorite characters, in one of my favorite shows of all time.  Yes, you had to know I was going to start of with Arrested Development. Specifically, Tobias Funke and his, shall we say, peculiar way of speaking.


BSG is here! Lost is almost here!

The last season of Battlestar Galactica got underway yesterday in the States, and while I haven’t seen it yet, I hope to soon. I just need to find it (in ways we aren’t going to speak of), and then we’ll chat.  Lost starts up next week for its penultimate season, and let’s just say, I CAN NOT WAIT.  I have already purchased my Season’s Pass on iTunes (thanks in large part to a gift card someone gave me), and am ready for the shows to begin downloading. Let’s hope iTunes is better at it this year, than they were last season.

I love both of these shows for their suspense, their quest for answers, and let’s face it, for their sci-fi-ness.  I haven’t opined a great deal about these two shows, other than that I love them.  I’m going rectify that (hopefully) each week as I see the new episodes, and try and explain what it is that is great about them.  Maybe I can even get some of you who won’t watch BSG because you think that people in space is just where you have to draw your sci-fi line, to change your mind.
I’m also looking forward to the new Joss Whedon show, Dollhouse, and seeing if it lives up to Buffy, Firefly, and Angel.
A lot more to come as the real tv season for me heats up!

Better Late Than Never: Sara’s Best of 2008…

I’m a little late to the “Best of 2008” game, but I decided to go ahead and join in on the fun. I picked my Top 5 TV shows/moments this year, and while admittedly, I did not get to watch as much television as would have liked to, I think it’s a pretty good list. So, for what it is worth, here they are, after the jump
