Farewell, Sarah Jane – a Doctor Who short

Today marks the 9th anniversary of the passing of Elisabeth Sladen, who was best known for playing Sarah Jane Smith on Doctor Who, The Sarah Jane Adventures and various spinoffs. The video below was posted today. Written by Russell T Davies, it plays like a short audio drama enhanced with visuals, telling the story of Sarah Jane’s funeral and some of her family and friends eulogizing her. It brings the feels.

Save The Thundercats on Cartoon Network

In case you didn’t know, last fall The Cartoon Network commissioned a reboot of the classic animated series Thundercats. Here’s a trailer:

They aired a season of 26 episodes over the last few months, but have yet to announce whether or not they’re bringing it back in the fall. While attending the 2012 ITV Fest/PopCon L.A. with my friend Aris, we came across the TeeBlitz booth, where I noticed they had a cool “Save The Thundercats” T-shirt on display. It turns out they weren’t selling them, they were giving them away for free to Thundercats supporters who signed a petition at change.org for Cartoon Network to renew Thundercats for a second season. Being fans of the show, we had no problem signing up to support it. We also had an ulterior motive for signing: Aris’ friend does voice work on the series and we’d like to keep him employed. Plus, a cool T-shirt:

If you’d like to help Save The Thundercats, head over to change.org, sign the petition now and pass it on to your friends.

Who would win in a face off: Luke Skywalker or Harry Potter?

I outline the strengths and weaknesses of each in this short video, suggested by the Revision 3 Variety Hour on the YouToo social television network. I’m sure some of you have opinions. Feel free to share ’em. After all, wasn’t the internet invented to debate meaningless shit like this?
