Spartacus: Blood and Sand Season TWO!

Andy Whitfield/Spartacus

I have to admit that this news actually brought a tear to my eye.  No, not simply because there actually is going to be a second season.  While I am very happy about that, what was very moving was the news that star Andy Whitfield, Sparatacus himself, has apparently triumphed outside of the gladiatorial arena in the biggest battle of […]

Sci-Fi Drama FREE via Torrent

When I first heard about this, I was fairly skeptical, but the lack of good science fiction on TV lately drew me to this and I’m really glad it did.  The pilot episode for Pioneer One is available to anyone and everyone for absolutely free, all via torrent distribution.  I just finished watching the pilot and, especially for a $6000 […]

Blockbuster CEO Slams Netflix Streaming Selection

This is quite an interview with the Blockbuster CEO. I think it’s great he absolutely doesn’t hide his disdain for Netflix. Enjoy. "You tell me: Do you want to watch The Blind Side or Herbie Goes to Cancun?" Keyes asked, referring to what some have called Netflix’s less-than-stellar on-demand offerings.

I think this is a great step in the right direction, although I’d be more excited if it was 5.1 support or more HD formats, but I suppose this was probably significantly easier.
