This week we talked about online TV show counterparts, blogs, sites, online games, etc. after getting a couple of similar themed emails. Listener Shayne asked:
You three are very plugged in to the TV online universe: What are your favorite official show web sites/ARGs; fan sites, blogs, forums, pedias, podcasts, twitter feeds, facebook aps, etc.
And listener Nathan wanted to know:
I think it would be a great topic to talk about how these online counterparts to shows affect the show and are they worth it? I am talking about things like Harper's Globe for Harper's Island or the online LOST games that take people thru sites and such. Are they a good thing? Love to hear the topic discussed! Thanks!
So, we did are best to discus them on the podcast.
But, first we chatted about a couple of news items including Sci Fi Channel changing its name to Syfy and the announcement of Maura Tierney's medical situation and how that has affected her new show Parenthood.
After covering our news and topics, we talked a bit about So You Think You Can Dance, Weeds, Nurse Jackie, Make It or Break It, 10 Things I Hate About You, The Closer, and The Philanthropist.
So, what are your favorite TV blogs, sites, online games, etc.? Let us know in the comments.
- We mentioned some 42 websites during the podcast, which will be compiled here in the near future. Also, the TVaholic has been down for the count with pneumonia, which was coming on during the recording of this podcast, which is why its posting has been so delayed. Hope you enjoy! Note: Won't be able to get to this list until after Comic Con.
