News & Notes

Sorry for the delay in today’s picks. I am having trouble with my web host (HostGator) and just got access to be able to post again, at least I hope so.

Download Burn Notice Episodes at Amazon UnboxOn cable tonight, Comedy Central has the series premieres The Gong Show with Dave Attell and Reality Bites Back and VH1 has the two-hour Rock Honors: The Who special,

In The Office news, the second webisode of four begins playing today.

In Dr. Horrible news, Act II of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is live and viewable. You can also purchase them at iTunes. Act III goes live on Saturday. Have you watched it? What do you think? Cause, the buzz going around about part two is that it is better than the first. So far, I must be in the minority, as I just don’t get it. Is it supposed to be funny? Cause I haven’t laughed yet. It is mildly amusing at times, but that’s it. I think I fall along similar lines with the TV addict on this one, as I do applaud the idea behind it and the production quality of this made for the Internet show, but I just don’t get the hyperbolic reaction to this by some. Are they so starved for anything Joss Whedon that anything will do?
