In the News:

  • Science-fiction grand master Ray Bradbury is lending his support to save the California libraries.
  • Think you paid a lot for your last video-game?  That’s nothing compared to one collector who just paid $17,500 for a collectible NES game.

Movie Talk:

  • Ryan Reynolds talks about what he’d like to see in a “Deadpool” movie.
  • Want to see “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” on opening day?  You’d better get tickets soon.  Pre-sale tickets are going faster than those for “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.”

Slice of Trivia: This week Kurt in St. George tests the studio crew and you with three new clips.  This week’s theme is “Size Does Matter.”  If you want to know more, you’ll have to tune in and find out. Email your clips to Kurt at Your entries could get picked and played on the show.

TV Talk: As part of the upcoming “Lost” panel at ComicCon, producers have challenged fans to write a theme-song for the show. No, using the “Gilligan’s Island” theme with the names of residents of the island probably won’t do it…
