I just went to a screening of The Five Venoms at my art museum's in house movie theatre, and the lady that runs the place said in a sort of an off hand way (in the middle of a reminiscence about the old days when they had first started showing kung fu films as part of their schedule) something along the lines of 'of course now with the satellite TV and DVDs not nearly so many people are interested in these pictures'. That sounded strange to me, because would have assumed that those two factors would have increased interest in that kind of movie. Does anyone have any insight or information about changes in peoples interest in kung fu films? Does that

Does anyone remember an older (80s) live action TV about a group of people with super powers? I have a terribly, terribly, terribly vague recollection of it. I seem to recall one guy could shrink and one could freeze things. I also seem to recall them all wearing the same jumpsuit. It may, honestly, have only been a TV special but I recall a short series that I may have made up on my own.
My Samsung DLP HDTV is giving me major grief. I was having minor convergence issues on the cable component and then yesterday I came home and there is huge blue streaking on all the components! It looks as if the blue projection has been bent across the top and bottom of the screen. [more inside]

My husband's two favorite cartoons, Teen Titans and Justice League, are not returning next season...what can he replace them with? Adult humor, dark themes, superheroes all good. He likes The Tick, but watches Cowboy Bebop on fast forward just for the action scenes.

I'm desperate here. I need to see an episode, any episode, of the old children's TV show called Vegetable Soup. A basket full of carrots and cauliflower to anyone who knows where to find video of this show, either on disc or online. Preferably online. Does anyone else remember this show? It was on in the mid-70's. I've looked on YouTube and other such sources, but there must be something I'm missing.

I set up my big screen and I think I did a good job. Only there's a lot of artifacting on the regular TV channels (not the HDTV). That may be as good as it's going to get with my DirectTV box but I'm not sure. Can you recommend a good guy at a reasonable price in LA to come take a look at it?

My setup came with the R15 DVR that Direct TV makes. I want to get my DVR'd programs onto my ipod so I can watch them at the gym. Let me know what I have to do. Do I need to trade it for a standard Direct TV reciever and get a Tivo with Tivo to Go? Will that work with direct TV? Is there some sort of program that will work with my system and my XP laptop? Or is there something you can do to mod the R15? Is there a guy who hacks the boxes and lets you use the seemingly dead USB outputs? AND, if none of that works...should I ditch the ipod and get one of those PVP's that records videos and just set that up on TOP of my DVR? Or do they not work with satellite? I know, this is a lot. But any help would be appreciated.
