    What are you watching?

    Just to collect the leftovers from the other "What are you...?" threads.

    I'm currently working my way through every episode of "Foamy the squirrel " on YouTube, I've yet to hear a Foamy rant I have no sympathy for.

    A Frontline episode called "Nuclear Aftershocks." It's one of the last items under "N."

    Falling Skies. I'm going to be watching this season's finale a bit later.

    With Mythbusters on hiatus, I'm mostly watching DVDs-- right now I'm on Firefly, next I plan on Space: Above And Beyond.

    Mine too, although I haven't seen it in a very long time.

    We actually saw a "making of" special somewhere before seeing the movie. The character of Aughra in the clips they showed was a bit disconcerting because she spoke in the voice of Miss Piggy with the syntax of Yoda. Frank Oz, of course. They redubbed with a different voice actor, as the did with the main character who sounded like Kermit the Frog.

    Hang on. Why did we just go back five and a half years, to the first page of this thread?

    Because I somehow clicked the thread instead of the "new posts" button and didn't realize it.

    The odd thing was that the movie had just popped into my mind earlier in the day.

    Well, lets move the Dark Crystal forward a few decades. Netflix is planning a new series. They have a fairly nice website, but no details on when it will be released.

    The Incredible Hulk finally came in the library, I've had a hold on it since May. I like Hulk with Eric Bana, I'm looking forward to seeing what Edward Norton can do when he turns all green and irritable.

    Oh, Edward Norton is beautiful at it. I was so sad when he didn't do The Avengers.

    I finally saw "The Incredible Hulk" last week (I still have not seen Bana's "Hulk"). I was quite impressed with Norton's performance but I'm afraid (sorry Gillian!) I preferred Ruffalo's.

    I also really liked all the little references to the old "Incredible Hulk" TV show they worked in.

    I was good to see Lou Ferrigno in both Hulk and The Incredible Hulk.

    He's a great actor, in Kingdom of Heaven I had no idea he was playing King Baldwin until the end credits. He was also great in The Score and The Illusionist.

    also pretty funny as a bent cop in The Invention of Lying.

    Did anyone else see "Lego Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Out" on the Cartoon Network last week? Played a little bit with canon, naturally, but was basically set right after "A New Hope" (although Darth Maul was in it). Very cute and funny, and surprisingly irreverent, given that I'm sure it had to be cleared by Lucas.

    Mark Ruffalo gives off an unpleasant frat boy vibe no matter what he's in. He was directed well in Avengers, but he was still miscast, unless you actually want Bruce Banner to offer you a beer, which will probably be some awful cheap brand he's drinking because it's ironic.

    I have been watching the Doc Martin Movies. They are vaguely addictive.

    They sound interesting, I think I'll start with Series 1 of the TV show.
