Blubrry, BOL, 24

All I've been watching lately is episodes of 24 on Netflix. It's a ridiculous show but incredibly addictive. So that's why I haven't posted lately.

Roku has a new channel, Blubrry. It's a lot like, with a variety of medium to poor quality podcasts. Haven't found anything compelling on it so far. But hey, it's free...

I have been enjoying cnet's Buzz Out Loud on Mediafly, easiest to search for it or add it to your Mediafly account. There's an audio and a video version.

We also got the Wii Netflix disk. It's perfect for the kids.

Instant Watch I've Watched Already

Some new Instant Watch releases I've watched prior to their release but you may want to watch. Or not.

A huge dump of Joss Wheedon's ouvre:
Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Season 1
Vampires and valley girls...
Angel, Season 1
Buffy spinoff, watch Buffy first
Firefly, the Complete Series
Best sci-fi TV show ever.
Dollhouse, Season 1
Misunderstood. It builds slowly and by the second season takes us in a very dark direction.
My one quibble is the unaired episode "Epitaph One" isn't available except on DVD.

Arrested Development, Season 1
One of the funniest shows on TV this decade.
Better Off Ted, Season 1
Sort of like Dilbert and Arrested Development mashed together. It even has Portia Del Rossi.

The Riches, Season 1
Well done series about a family of Travellers (not actually Irish...) who try and make a new life.
Lost, Season 1
What? You haven't watched LOST? The only sci-fi Felice will watch with me. Trust me, nothing in season one makes any sense until you get to season 10, and even then I have no idea what's going on. But it's a heck of a ride.

Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends, Season 1
I'd never seen the earlier episodes. Boris and Natasha are far more sinister.

An interesting and somewhat brutal movie about Ghengis Khan. I can hardly wait for the sequels.

They've also released most of the seasons of 24 which I haven't watched yet as I was waiting for them to release it.
