    Regarding The Avengers, it wasn’t about science fiction. It was definitely espionage. It’s just that the things they delt with were…well, bizarre.
    Lucky people who get BBC America, if you’ve never seen The Avengers, ya gotta check it out.

  4. I agree with Summer that I’m not overly thrilled with video on the iPod. Granted, I don’t actually have a video iPod, but I have downloaded some free content on iTunes and watched it on my PC. Not impressed. There is no way I’d pay DVD price for that.

    When you mentioned “other” ways of watching them, were you meaning as extras on the DVD release, or would you have to buy them as seperate purchases? If it’s the latter, then remember UMD. Granted, it’s still around, but a lot of companies have pulled out of that market. It won’t surprise me if it’s dead before too long.

    Right now I’m watching my legally purchased TV shows on my PSP. I buy them on DVD and rip them to a PSP-friendly format, which I then copy to my memory card. That gives me the option of watching them when I want, how I want.

    Regarding the LIve Action Archade thing, the type of filmed “effects” you’re talking about were probably already done in Mike Jitlov’s “The Wizard of Speed and Time” (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081766/)

  6. Check out the July 18th Rocketboom episode (http://www.rocketboom.com/vlog/archives/2006/07/rb_06_jul_18.html). There are stop-motion “Space Invaders” and “Pong” video clips.

  7. Here is Legend of Zelda Live Action … ha ha ha http://www.i-am-bored.com/bored_link.cfm?link_id=16297

  8. Super Mario Brothers live action.

  9. Bah thats what I get for not looking at the posts properly. It was the first one posted :/ Ah well never mind.

  10. So you’re saying the video idea we had isn’t the most original of ideas. Dammit. OK. What someone *really* should do is make a First Person Shooter movie. That would be super… [What? Tt's been done, too? Awww... dammit.]

  11. No, but the Asteroids idea is good. How about Pongo. One more chance to get the “popcorn” song into the media :D

    and if you ever played Goldneye on the N64:
