    Riff wants to replace YouTube for TV show reaction videos

Meet Riff, a New York-based startup that has found a neat… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: ‘Lost’ Seasons 1-3 for $58.99

    A little personal information about me: I’ve never seen a single episode of Lost. I understand it’s quite popular, though. A co-worker of mine at a previous place of employment was so adamant that I join the Lost-watchers club that she leant me the first season and then asked me every day what I thought of the show. After a month of not even taking the first disc out of the sleeve… Read More

  • Family Guy 'Cleveland' spin-off in the works?

    Wow. Apparently Seth MacFarlane and company are working on a spin-off from Family Guy tentatively titled Cleveland, starring the slow-talking walking stereotype Cleveland Brown. It’s unclear whether the series would be set in Quahog and/or if Loretta, Cleveland, and Cleveland Jr. would continue to show up on Family Guy as part of the storyline. I’d hope they’d still be part… Read More

    [photopress:th_fcdEvangiline_Lilly.AA172.PLT.jpg,full,right]If you watched LOST for the first time last night and were totally, well, lost as to what’s going on, you’re so not alone.

  • George Lucas working on 'Star Wars' TV show

    It’s not quite what you think, though. Sorta, maybe. "The Skywalkers aren’t in it, and it’s about minor characters. It has nothing to do with Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader or any of those people. It’s completely different. But it’s a good idea, and it’s going to be a lot of fun to do," said Lucas. It’ll be more about robots. The development… Read More

  • Beyond Beyond TV

    I’ll be the first to admit I’m cheap. In fact, very soon you’ll see a series of features by Yours Truly on how to put together a seriously kick-ass home theater system for less than most people pay for just the TV. But I do pay the extra $10 to Comcast for my DVR. And I love my DVR. But it only holds so much data, then I must choose what to lose and what to keep. So I devised… Read More

  • Knight Rider making a comeback Transformers style, wtf?!

    If you haven’t already realized this I loves me some comic bookish TV shows and movies. My previous Transformers and Iron Man coverage should make that quite apparent. Although, I didn’t post the Iron Man trailer because everyone else at CG thought it was lame, but here’s the link in case you missed it. Man, this coffee is making me all sorts of antsy (Note to self: no… Read More

  • iPhone On Lost?! Nope.

    Actually no, you’re just blind. Quite a few blogs have been reporting that the iPhone was shown on the failing TV series “Lost”. Look at that screenshot above. Do the icons look similar to the iPhone’s? Sure. But what about the length of that device and the fact that it has a map on the screen? Hmmm, doesn’t look like much of an iPhone anymore. Perhaps if everyone… Read More
