Emmy Wins, etc.

September 23, 2008

First things first: NEW HAT.

2008 Emmy Awards

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not a fantastic picture, give me a little time and maybe more will surface.

30 Rock snagged these Emmys:

Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series: Jennifer McNamara Schroff, 30 Rock

Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series (Half-Hour) and Animation: Griffin Richardson (Production Mixer), Tony Pipitone (Re-Recording Mixer) and Bill Marino (Re-Recording Mixer), 30 Rock Episode 210

Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series: Tim Conway as Bucky Bright, 30 Rock

Outstanding Writing: Tina Fey for “Cooter”

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series: Alec Baldwin

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series: Tina Fey

Outstanding Comedy Series: 30 Rock

That’s really impressive. 

I’m getting super excited for the season premiere, which is definitely 10/30.  

So, you guys: in the next two weeks I’ll be moving and then (hopefully) working on getting some better quality screen grabs and doing some general site housekeeping, so unless something insane happens, posts will be pretty thin until the new episodes start showing up on Hulu.

Hang it up, Best Buy

September 16, 2008

According to the guy I asked, the release has been pushed back to 10/14. That’s a week later than all other places say it gets released. We’ll see about that, won’t we?!

DVD Scandal?

September 14, 2008

Take a gander at this week’s Best Buy circular:

This seems to be the only place that thinks Season 2 is coming out this Tuesday – Amazon, TVShowsonDVD, Overstock.com, and even the Godawful Circuit City  all are showing a release date of 10/7.  I’m going to investigate Tuesday morning at 10 (it IS my blogalistic duty, after all), because Best Buy has been known for some boneheaded shit when it comes to the accuracy of their release dates (I got the My So-Called Life series the Sunday BEFORE it was released, thank you Wheaton store). I will report back.

10:41 PM UPDATE Season 2 is definitely available on iTunes in HD and SD. Allegedly “Secrets and Lies” is being offered as a free download, but as of yet it seems like no one has been able to successfully download it.

11:33 PM UPDATE 2 I am successfully downloading (for free) Secrets and Lies right now. If you want to too, make sure you have 1-Click on.
