Hatfields & McCoys: Part 1
I think this mini series from the History Channel took everyone by surprise and became a huge (record breaking) ratings hit for Cable network. If you missed it, now you can check it out online. The official description: The Hatfield-McCoy saga begins with Devil Anse Hatfield (Kevin Costner) and Randall McCoy (Bill Paxton). Close friends and comrades until near the end of the Civil War, they return to their neighboring homes—Hatfield in West Virginia, McCoy just across the Tug River border in Kentucky—to increasing tensions, misunderstandings and resentments that soon explode into all-out warfare between their families. As hostilities grow, friends, neighbors and outside forces join the fight, bringing the two states to the brink of another civil war. Watch Hatfields & McCoys: Part I online now!

Did you catch the plane crash on Grey’s Anatomy last Thursday? How about 2 Broke Girls meeting Martha Stewart? Did you witness House‘s struggle in a burning building? Will you be watching tonight as the Glee kids graduate from High School? As you might have noticed, the current TV season is quickly coming to a close. This gives you the perfect opportunity to take a look at your television package.
Do you have Cable, direct tv, Dish, or do you get all of your television via the web? What or how is the best way to get your television fix? How much are you spending or how much are you comfortable spending. Personally, I use Cable and have been using it for years. I have quickly been getting discouraged as my price seems to go up and up with nothing I can do about keeping it down.
How would my package compare to dx3 direct tv? Well, let me take a look. I spend approximately 100 bucks for my service and I get two premium channels. The price scale on www.dx3.net stars at 29.99 for the Entertainment package and goes up to 44.99 for the Choice Ultimate package (both deals for 12 months). Entertainment package comes with 140 channels, which is about what I have now minus the premium channels, while Choice Ultimate package has 225 channels with 11 extra movie channels and free premium channels for 3 months. The Choice Ultimate has a lot of bang for the buck. Direct TV has other options and features including (but not limited to) NFL Sunday Ticket and On Demand.

Our friends over at 141tv.com have posted in their TV Guide about a bunch of new shows available to watch online:
Last night, Desperate Housewives ended its run with a two hour series finale. Official Description: “Trip (Scott Bakula) begs Bree to tell him what really happened the night of Alejandro’s murder as her trial begins to go south and it looks like she’s about to be convicted; Gaby tries to come up with a solution that will take the burden off of Bree; Susan tries to keep the sale of her house private until she’s had a chance to break the news to the ladies; Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delany) returns to Wisteria Lane and offers Lynette an intriguing job opportunity – which could end her chances of reconciling with Tom; the women all agree to take care of Mrs. McCluskey when they discover that she wants to die with dignity at home; Susan finds herself at wits end when Julie goes into labor at the most inopportune time; and Renee is shocked to discover that, as their wedding nears, Ben has been arrested and thrown in jail.” Click here to watch on 141tv.
Modern Family keeps the laughs coming as proves that they are still one of the funniest shows on TV as the family heads to Disney.

Phil tries to keep up with Luke, Claire’s shocked when they run into Dylan, Jay and Gloria disagree about what are sensible shoes for the day, and Mitch and Cam must contain Lily’s new affinity for running.” Click here to watch on 141tv.

I talk about a lot of pieces of equipment and tips, some are useful for prep and shooting of movies, while others are just nice for general building, office, and set maintenance. The tips and equipment I’m talking about today, a Hardwood Floor Cleaning machine, fits into the latter category.
When I was asked to chat about this item I wasn’t sure where I’d go with talking about it, but the more research I did about Hardwood Cleaning, the more it tied in with the Filmmaking site of our website. Whether you are shooting your movie on film or HD, you need your set in tip top shape otherwise you will see every piece of dirt and nick in your floors, which can become very distracting to your audience. Say a scene takes place in what is supposed to be a wealthy person’s apartment, but the floors look cheap and messed up. Having the proper tools to make your wood or wood-like floors look as good as possible are very important.
This same piece of advise should follow you to your production office. When you have the resources to do so, you should invest in the proper equipment to put your best foot forward. If you have wood floors, make sure that they are sanded, stained, and look polished when you have possible investors, talent or crew coming in for meetings. If you look cheap, they will think you are cheap.
