Film Talk Forum - Smart friendly discussion of the best in Film and Television

I've been looking for a good place for deeper discussion of great films and TV shows. I saw this thread in AskMeFi and checked out the criterion forum, but found it lacking. So I created my own film and TV discussion forum. Please feel free to join and add to the (currently non-existent) conversation. Tell all your film geek friends too. Thanks. :)

Breaking Bad In A Week

I haven't watched any of Breaking Bad. Until now. I've decided to catch up on the entire run of the series in the final week remaining before it broadcasts its finale next Sunday. I'm tweeting as I watch (@BreakingBadN1Wk) and compiling a tumblr blog (http://breakingbadinaweek.tumblr.com/) of more thoughtful reactions to the series and its themes and motifs (and unholy lust for chartreuse) as well as my ill-considered predictions of where it's headed. Thought it might be fun for old Breaking Bad fans to relive their original shock, horror and befuddlement through following mine, as I race to finish before Sunday.

Cult TV Times is the result. There you'll find both free content like Sir Mortimer Wheeler - Archeology's forgotten TV hero, and our very first official issue: CTVT #1: Mummy, Can Men Be Prime Ministers Too? - just £2 (about $3) for over 80 pages of content.

The Dirty Sock Funtime Band Show

The Dirty Sock Funtime Band Show Nominated for “Best Kids’ Band for 2006″ by Time Out NY Kids Nominated for “Best New Band” by Children’s Music Web Awards “Don’t let the wigs and bright clothes fool you: The Dirty Sock Funtime Band is the closest thing to arena rock that the New York kids’ music scene has got. Its hyperactive stage show and loud, anthemlike harmonies come in part from Mike Messer’s theatrical background and from Stephen Jacobs’s love of seminal funksters Parliament-Funkadelic. Says Jacobs, ‘We want to give kids their first rock & roll experience. I had to wait until I saw Prince!’” [more inside]

Destination Truth Blog (i.e. Wannabe-Exhaustive Fansite)

Assuming you're not a Destination Truth fan specifically (which is fine!) pretend that this is a site about YOUR favorite television show. My question for you is, what sort of obsessive detail do you look for in a fansite? What more could I be tracking? [more inside]
