TV shows update, tech bits

An update to my fall TV schedule. Smallville is officially over for me. After last season’s inconsistency I was ready to quit watching the show, but I thought I would give it one more chance. The season premiere was good, but the last couple episodes have been horrible. So for the first time in five seasons, I did not watch this weeks Smallville. It’s the end of an era.

A show I forgot to mention, season 2 of Extras has been on the BBC this past month. Starring Ricky Gervais from “The Office” fame, Extras is all about life as a movie extra. As someone who works in the film business, I could relate to all the situations Ricky finds himself in. Very funny and worth every minute of your time.

So as everyone knows, Google bought You Tube this week. Very cool, as long as they don’t mess with it too much. Robert Scoble linked to a great example of why You Tube is stealing attention from mainstream media. It’s a guilty pleasure. Kids don’t come home and watch TV anymore, they are watching stuff like this…

With You Tube, Podcasts, Blogs and iTunes (not to mention Bittorrent), it makes you wonder why you still subscribe to cable or satellite at all. Live sports I guess. But even hockey highlights are online.

I love the new red iPod Nano. Bono launched the Red product line on Oprah last week. I think I’m going to stick with my original plan to get the new shuffle simply because of the small size. It will be great for jogging. Once the new video iPod comes out, I’ll get that to replace my three year old 20G.

  1. Hi Jason,

    I have been reading your blogs for the past few weeks and I do enjoy reading about what is on TV. However, I think that you shold also include more about your self. I sure you do more than just watch TV 24/7.

    Anyway keep up the good work and I really think that you should consider what I just wrote.

    Take care buddy.
