Bunheads Marathon to Lead into Summer Finale
After getting a quickie marriage and hightailing it out of Vegas, Michelle thought that life would be different, better. There'd be stability, there'd be quiet, and there'd be someone to come home to at night that cared about her in a way that nobody else ever had. But all that was shattered once her husband Hubbell was in a car accident and lost his life only 48 hours after they exchanged their vows. Rather than moving back to her apartment or finding another city to go to, she opted to stay in Paradise, California, where Hubbell had been living with his mother. Whether the extended stay came from a sense of obligation, guilt, grief, a lack of direction, or some combination thereof, what matters is that Michelle has found a different type of home with all the other bunheads.

Bunheads S01E05: "Money for Nothing"
Money is a necessary evil.oh, screw that, money is awesome. You use it to buy cool things. But in the world of dance, it can be an impediment to self-expression. .I.m an artist, okay?. Fanny says. .I don.t think about money.. Everyone should be able to dance in Fanny.s eyes, and she has a point. How do you put a price tag on creativity and performance?
On the flip side, how do you not? Dance studios have expenses. Dance studio owners have expenses.... More >> »

For the first time since Bunheads premiered, an episode was evenly split between the adults and the teens.
"Money For Nothing" was thematic again, with Boo working for money, Fanny and Michelle needing money and Michelle flat out refusing to teach for it.
Boo, again proving she is the most normal of the four lead bunheads, got a job at The Oyster Bar. The assistant manager asked her to jump in the dumpster and then return into the restaurant. Might I suggest a hazmat suit to keep from smelling a walking sewage system? He wanted her to do this in a bar serving oysters, no less. Of all the things that have happened on Bunheads so far, that was by far the most unbelievable.
To round that into a product placement moment with a snack size bag of Lays potato chips made the scene all the more annoying. Please note »

While "Bunheads" seemed like it was going to be a "Gilmore Girls"-esque meditation on small-town life with a dance studio at the center of the action, things got a little heavy when a main character died in the pilot. Now that we've reached Episode 4, the dancing is back front and center as the girls at Fanny's school audition for the Joffrey Ballet.
Except there's not actually much dancing in "Money for Nothing," star Kaitlyn Jenkins tells Zap2it in a recent on-set interview. The 20-year-old actress who plays young dancer Boo Jordan promises that it'll be okay, because there's plenty of character development.
"You really get to see Boo and Sasha mature in this episode. You get to see Boo's passion and how dedicated she becomes to this -- kind of obsessed a little bit," Jenkins explains. "I think lots of girls will be able to relate to Boo »
When Homer Simpson philosophized that "He who is tired of Weird Al is tired of life," he likely had no idea how long that sentiment would ring true. In an episode of "30 Rock" that saw guest appearances from Cynthia Nixon, Jimmy Fallon, Mary Steenburgen and another Baldwin brother, the funniest guest star of the episode was "Weird Al" Yankovic, who even contributed a parody of the "30 Rock" theme song.
In the episode, Weird Al parodies a Jenna Maroney song, much to her chagrin (perhaps a nod to Lady Gaga's attempt to withhold his parody of "Born This Way). Jenna and Tracey are then inspired to write a Weird Al-proof song.
Al then stuck around to add his own lyrics to the end credits instrumental music for "30 Rock," taking a jab at NBC in the process for the dismal ratings seen by "30 Rock" and pretty much the rest of their programming. »

This might be a little on the obscure side of the gaming fence, but lets give it a go, these are forgotten gems after all. This one is from the days when people used their PC for gaming, before the console market crushed this idea, then the internet came along and the PC became a Facebook machine. But anyways, this title was released in 1996 for that Dos, everybody’s favourite operating system.
Although it was developed in the colonies, now know as the United States of America, The Gene Machine was a very British adventure.
Being British is Cool!
Set in the olden days, Victorian London, the 19th century to be exact. The title followed the gentlemanly adventures of Piers Featherstonehaugh, and his ever tolerant and trusty servant and side kick Mossop. Our man has just returned from the Americas “having completed a secret mission of the upmost importance to »
