'I'm Back Baby!' 2013 Spring/Summer Return Dates

The Mad Men season 6 premiere date got everyone buzzing (until JJ Abrams stole the show). So I’ve done you all a solid and compiled a list of all my (and presumably your) favorite shows. Late? Slightly. Still relevant? Absolutely!

Feb 10th - The Walking Dead

March 30th - Dr. Who

March 31st - Game of Thrones

April 7th - Mad Men

May (4th possibly) - Arrested Development 

June - Futurama (unconfirmed but logic would dictate June since the last few seasons have also aired that month)

June 10th - True Blood

June 24th - The Newsroom

June 30th - Dexter

July 14th - Breaking Bad

Sept 29th - Homeland

May 2014 - Louie

Never - Fringe :(

All I’m waiting on is the exact return dates for Sherlock and Luther. I’ve read August and “Fall 2013” (duh) respectively but neither were confirmed. We shall wait and see!

Am I forgetting any of your favorite shows? Let me know! 

Amazon Nuts Up, Picks Up “Zombieland” Series

More over Pacific Playland, Columbus, Tallahassee and the rest of the Zombieland survivors have found a new home. Amazon.com has picked up the show based on the 2009 movie in what I consider a major coo for the sites streaming service.

Amazon Prime/Amazon Instant Video sits in the third in the streaming war behind Netflix and Hulu for subscribers. I’m bummin’ (borrowing) the service from a friend which I use on my PS3. The layout is lovely (if slightly confusing) but it’s just lacking interesting, unique titles which competitors have in spades at the moment. Perhaps this will help it even the playing field a bit. 

At this point little is known about the plot and talent attached to the show. i09 scored a few pages of script from the series. Sounds like it’s half-hour episodes will have the classic Z-land humor and more on the Columbus/Wichita romance, which I for one have been jonesing for since the movie came out. I wonder though if the actors will be even half as good as Jesse, Emma and co. 

Three cheers for a new non-Walking Dead zombie show! 

MEGA — A Lazy Review

image

This is what Kim Dotcom’s new file-sharing/storage site ‘Mega' looks like…A little boring eh? It's certainly not what I expected from the dude who created MegaUpload, MegaVideo and many more now defunct sites. I suppose that's what a year-long high profile copyright infringement case will do to ya. It will also serve to attract a lot of attention. Dotcom tweeted that within the first two hours the server reached it’s 250,000 registrations. In all, more than a million people registered for the site within the first 24 hours. I signed up for the service this morning and these are some of general first impressions. 

  • Registration didn’t take as long as I expected. Some sites like Mashable reported some slowness in the registration process. Mine was fairly smooth.
  • It looks less like MegaUpload and more like Dropbox. And the great thing is you get WAY more storage on Mega than Dropbox (and every other cloud storage site — see blow). However, I wonder if Mega will eventually catch up to other online locker services in terms of phone and tablet availability. 
  • Where’s the porn!?! LOL JK JK! (kinda)

You can read a more in-depth review of the site on Gizmodo. But you can bet your ballsack that I’m gonna lean into this service. 

I’M BACK BABY!

So sorry for the delay, my lovelies! 2012 was a weird and wonderful year. However I regret not being more active here. There was a ton of interesting streaming news that I neglected to post. So many missed opportunities. BUT(T) I got a lot of good experience working as a web editor and social media coordinator for the now defunct (not my fault) Fourth Wall Studios’ interactive web series platform RIDES.tv. It was an ambitious venture that I sincerely wished would have succeeded. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. I learned a ton about the web series world and the future of how we consume our entertainment, which is of course what this blog is all about. 

To 2013, the year of streaming entertainment!
