Thank you Ruth and James for posting. I love the robot video Ruth and James that a great Spiderman pic.

Anyone watching the Olympic coverage on TV?

Love the ape hugging Spiderman.  I also remember those old typewriters in the ad before the video.  The trash can.  If only we had those when we had the old typewriters.

Video showing the construction of a robot waste can that intercepts tossed objects. (No English)

Probably right. They was talk of making a web series at first. Still might be on the table. And I agree, Caprica was getting better. It seems like they cancel shows too soon nowdays, instead of giving them time to find their place.

Comment by Steph S. on July 31, 2012 at 5:44pm

I watched those two shows too and thought Caprica was getting better and then they cancelled it. I wasn't too impressed with the new BSG series - but I did watch it and found it interesting.

They will probably make it into a series and then cancel it on us once it gets good. : )

Comment by Tony Carroll on July 31, 2012 at 5:41pm

Yes, I plan on it. I watched the original BSG, and the reimagined series. Also Caprica, which I didn't think was especially good, but it had promise. This one looks much more promising. From what I read, it's gonna be a movie. If it gets good enough ratings, will probably become a series. We'll just have to wait and see.

Tony I'm definitely going to watch Blood and Chrome on SyFy. Thanks for the trailer - it looks awesome. Just my thing!

Will you be watching the show too?

Comment by Steph S. on July 31, 2012 at 5:04pm

I love Snape! Thanks so much Tony!

Comment by Tony Carroll on July 31, 2012 at 1:21pm

Some people count six Snapes, but I counted 'Severn', LOL. :)
