While I totally understand the need to enforce "the X channel needs to be devoted to X" logic, Delocated (especially) and Childrens Hospital are easily the best shows on Cartoon Network now that The Marvelous Misadventures Of Flapjack is done. You don't have Nielsen boxes. Watch them!

There's more than one Doctor Who Museum.

There's one in Blackpool that has a ton of the old props, set replicas etc, for example. There's also a museum tour of props from the current series and the post-05 stuff, currently based at the Centre for Life in Newcastle. MOMI in London used to have all the Daleks, but I'm not sure if they still do.

I haven't listened yet but I noticed Odd Jobs is discussed. Just thought I'd say that NBC has ordered a pilot for it as of yesterday. For those that don't know what it is, Locke and Ben play former black-ops agents and it sounds like it's going to be an action comedy.

I still have not played Bioshock. I've had it for over a year and still have not played it. :(

Aquariums should just use transparent aluminum. It'll even hold whales!

Halo + Halo 2 came out for PC. The only place you can get achievements for Halo 2 is PC, along with the only place you can still play Halo 2 Multiplayer is PC.

Tom and Eric Super Show is the best show ever. Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! is even better though.

The term he's looking for is "administration", anyway; I believe in the US it's called Chapter 11 or some such. Basically, it's selling all redeemable assets to try and avoid utter closure.

The network that Ryan Scott wants/Ryan Higgins was talking about is The HUB. It's half Hasbro and half Discover Kids.

Check it out here:

I've been saying this for years: Cartoon Network has sucked ass ever since more live-action shows have made it to the air.

No. You're wrong here. It's called Cartoon Network. There's nothing remotely animated about Childrens Hospital or those other live shows. If they want to make Adult Swim the channel, with a variety of shit, that's fine. But keep that shit off of Cartoon Network.

Halo is one of the most influential games ever.

There are no big PC exclusive shooters anymore.

Solution for being taxed on lottery winnings. Move to Canada.

April you should check out Risk Factions on XBLA. It's pretty cool they have old school risk along with a new objective based risk both in the same game. I think it's 800 Microsoft Points.

For some reason Karen's enthusiasm for the hex-grid was just so infectious, it made me smile.

I think when Master Higgins says something is stupid he means he doesn't like it or it's not relevant to his interest. Mixed in with some of his self-admitted reluctance to like something that is very popular.

Oh and BTW Limbo is great up until between the halfway and 2/3rds point after which it's ok. As a result the second half drags quite a bit compared to the first.

Hey, what can I say? The hexagon is the most efficient shape. Also, mind you, I'm a big geometry nerd.

But then in theory wouldn't the dodecagon be twice as efficient?
