Two new shows I’m really looking forward to. Of course, they’re both on networks that I don’t have and I don’t really want more subscriptions. I remember when there was only (over-the-air) broadcast, then broadcast + cable, then satellite, and now network app-subscriptions. If we continue down this path, pretty soon we’ll have to subscribe to every show individually!
Just a reminder that Lost starts up again on Wednesday night (Jan 21st.). There’s a 1 hour clip show recapping seasons 1-4, followed by a 2 hour season 5 premier. Here in San Francisco it starts at 8:00pm, but you should check your local listings.
On January 17th and 18th, 2009, AuctionNetwork.com will be auctioning off official set plans, costumes, and props used in the new Battlestar Galactica TV series, including a full-size viper that’s 30′ long.
The Viper looks way cool, but it’s expected to go for 50-60k, so it’s a little out of my budget. You can also pick up a Cylon Raider for a mere 30-40k.
The Eye TV Hybrid, from Elgato, is a nifty little device that allows you to watch and record TV on your Mac. It normally sells for $149.95, but you can get it for $99.95 through this promotion if you buy it by December 31st, 2008.
I picked one of these up at Macworld 2008. I don’t use it a tremendous amount, but it is very handy, and I’ve been happy with it’s performance. I recommend them.
As a side-note to anyone attending Macworld in January, Elgato will be there, and they usually offer this same price during the Expo, along with discounts on their other products.
Just a quick Reminder for all of you Lost fans. The show returns tonight with a new episode!
So far it’s not showing up (for me) in searches, but the first season of Sci-fi classic, Farscape, is supposed to hit itunes today. I just love that show. [via TUAW]
Life After People is a mini-series starting tonight on The History Channel. The show asks the question, What would happen to planet earth if the human race were to suddenly disappear forever? It looks very interesting. Check your local listings for exact time and channel.
