TV: Heat Vision and Jack

Did you like Knight Rider? Do you like Doctor Who? Have you ever wondered what it would be like if those two shows were somehow combined into a freakish amalgamated send-up of 80's action television? Well wonder no more! Everybody's favorite everyman, Jack Black, stars in this never-aired pilot. It's directed by Ben Stiller, and features Owen Wilson as the voice of Jack's talking motorcycle. Not surprisingly, Fox decided to take a pass on this one, but it's very funny, and worth the download if you've got the means.

Liana and I just watched it and really enjoyed it. This sort of thing is always a bit bittersweet for me, because it's good enough that I'd like more, but there isn't any, and probably never will be. Well, at least I can look forward to watching blurry 5th generation videotaped copies of it at Sci-Fi conventions. Kudos to waxy.org for hosting the Torrent.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to continue downloading an audio recording of The Last Starfighter, The Musical.

Seth found this many moons ago and we all fell in love with it at work. Very, very funny stuff. Glad to hear you liked it, too.

Having complained about the formatting on Netscape 7 yesterday, I checked again last night and now it seems OK. The problem from before was that the left 1 cm of the page was beyond the margin (not scrollable). Now, it's a bit offset to the right, but that's OK, since I can read your illuminating wisdom (and see pictures of your cute kids :).

It's still probably worth checking out, but less critical.
