For the last couple of months I have trialling Joost. Slowly more content is appearing that is worth watching[I must admit the indie flix channel has been the only content to really grab me]. My main annoyance is that I am unable through any of the setting and preference to get it to open up at the channel list and not to start replaying the last thing I watched. This is a real pain.
I also see that an 80 episode internet only mini drama – prom queen – starts tomorrow. Might be fun. It is made by Vuguru, a studio started by ex Dsiney head honcho, Michael Eisner and his investment firm.
I have also been using Peekvid and AllUC to keep up with new episodes of House. Season 3 has just started up over here in the UK (paired with the always very watchable James Woods in Shark on thurday nights on Five) but having devoured the first two series over xmas on dvd I couldn’t be bothered waiting (and I will for the record buy the season 3 dvd when released too – same with Veronica Mars which I am also keeping up with).
The House site has a link to a clip by Stephen Fry (who has just done a very amusing cameo as David Boreanez’s shrink in Bones) talking about his old partner.
All this has me thinking – What are my favourite current TV shows? In no particular order: –
Life on Mars
