Finished watching “Space Above and Beyond.” I had only caught a few episodes when it aired and finally got to finish watching from where I left off in my apartment. Despite some bad righting and not so great acting, especially the first couple episodes, I actually liked the show. Kind of had the feel of a cross between “Combat!” and “Starship Troopers.”

It’s in standard def so the video is ok though intentionally shot a little dark and muted. The Audio is also ok some surround action kicking in during battles and ship flybys. Even though it only lasted one season they did rap it up, in a bit of a hurried way, so you’re not left completely hanging.

It’s a good watch for the real Sci-Fi fan but most people probably won’t care for it.

Patton Oswalt: No Reason to Complain

I've had this DVD for a while, but I kept putting off watching it. Very funny set.

I came into this about half way through the season and liked it enough that I was disappointed when it was not renewed. We are getting a little too close to comfort for the "tank" premise these days.

Just finished the last segment of the Planet Earth BD set. The imagery in this documentary is stunning. I was quite surprised by how much the used both lfe (sometimes a little over the top) and the surround channels. Some of the elephant rumbling was really cool!

I just watched an amazing photorealistic CG movie showpiece called The Third & The Seventh. Definitely watch this full-screen and with the volume up.

I was completely floored by it.

Here's the artist's own info about it:

A FULL-CG animated piece that tries to illustrate architecture art
across a photographic point of view where main subjects are
already-built spaces. Sometimes in an abstract way. Sometimes
surreal.
