Weird Science is on Hulu, and My Productivity is Shot!

Do you remember the USA show Weird Science? It ran in the mid-90’s, and it was based on the John Hughes film of the same name. I loved that show, because it came on every Saturday night after the kids I babysat for went to bed. So when I found it on Hulu, I dropped …

The New “Heroes Reborn” Trailer ALMOST Makes up for the Heroes Series

Heroes was a really good show, at first. It followed pretty familiar comic/sci-fi territory of people developing superhuman abilities, and the various conspiracies designed to stop and control them. Plus bad guys, pretty people, and of course, some mind-bending twists. We won’t discuss how quickly later seasons managed to squander the goodwill of that first …

We Cut Our Cable and Don’t Regret a Thing!

About a month ago, we decided to tighten up our budget, and one of the obvious places was cable. A quick once-over of our viewing habits showed our TV spent more time tuned to our Roku box than the cable box anyway, so I cut our plan back to just internet, and we really don’t …

Mythbusters Takes on Doom Video Game Carrying Capacity

One of the fun things in first-person shooter games is all of the weapons you can play around with … but it also gets pretty silly in terms of what you are able to carry by the end of the game. Pistols, machine guns, shotguns, grenade launchers, missiles, etc! Now Mythbusters is going to try …

As I watched the Ohio State Buckeyes face the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl, I realized that none of the top-four bowl games have been broadcast on television in the last five years.
