This Spartan Life, a Halo talk show. A nice example of Machinima, using game engines in unexpected ways. Some, like the folks behind Red vs. Blue or The Strangerhood, make long running series, others recreate movie scenes, and some people just like playing with the environment.

Now I want all talk shows to include weapons of war, firey crashes, and vulva-shaped transported modules.

I'm not a huge gamer or machinima fan, but I found TSL very entertaining. I predict we'll see an actual G4 show using Machinima soon.

Didn't Rooster Chicken get hired to do a mini-series of Strangerhood for G4?

Tim Berners-Lee is spinning in his grave (yes, I know he's not dead yet, but should he see that site it would surely kill him). The download hasn't finished yet, but the first lesson of web design to be learned here is "big blobs of flash bad".

The Oprah Winfrey show should adopt this format.

I think this is fascinating. I watched the Few Good (G) Men... It'll be interesting when they can actually include some physical manifestation of emotion into the toons.

This is a fantastic idea, and well-executed. The blog entries are kinda dumb, but the Bob Stein interview is priceless.
