Playing iPod Videos an TV

How do I play videos from my iPod Nano on my Phillips television? My Phillips is a flat screen and has a USB port on the side, which my iPod can dock to. When I connect them, the television even recognizes that an iPod is connected, but doesn't seem to know what to do with it. Any ideas?

The Player TV show... ? And other shows that never made it past the pilot stage.

So I just watched the (terrible) pilot for the 2003 tv show L.A. Confidential. I've also heard Michael Tolkin talk about the tv show for The Player, which I've never been able to find. My questions are: where can I find The Player tv show and what other films have had failed tv shows not make it past the pilot stage?

Help me identify this mid 90's Japanese science/educational TV show.

Help me identify this mid 90's Japanese science/educational TV show and prove that it exists. Every week it explored how something worked by approaching it from a different angle or doing an unusual experiment. One show they made gasoline from orange peels and drove a car around with it. On another they tried making coffee from other foods by roasting, grinding and filtering water through peanuts, soy beans, and beef. I remember the title as "MegaTen" but the Googles, they do nothing. [more inside]

The Han and Cinema

The Han and Cinema I am working on a paper on the Korean concept of Han and how Han is communicated directly or through the use of trope in film and television. Of particular interest are films and television from East Asia, those which feature East Asian actors, and those which are set in East Asia. The definition I am seeking to support or reject is the idea of Han as: The pain of victims that has festered in their hearts for a long time. My ideas thus far: The West Wing (2003) Episode 504 - entitled Han. The Good Earth (1937) In addition to the plot of the film of interest is the fact Anna May Wong was passed over for the role of O-Lan and the pain and woundedness and the sense of "Han" she experienced. M*A*S*H (1972-1983) set in Korea but not focused on Korea. The Korean people are merely a silent witness in the series, they have no voice. If you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

Help me find this animated show about aliens

Looking for old animated film of aliens. I saw this on t.v. in the late 70's or maybe the 80's. Aliens that kind of looked like people were in animation and sometimes they would sit like they were meditating and then a big bubble would float above them, and you could not figure out if their soul was in the bubble, or if they were somehow procreating with others by doing this. I remember that the children were not suppose to bother someone who was doing this. It was a very interesting animation. I thought that the word "planet" was in the title but I'm not sure. Any ideas??

Whats the best television one can get around the £200-give-or-take benchmark. I've searched around but am totally overwhelmed by all the myriad of possibilities, monitors, High Def, TV tuners etc. Built in Freeview would be extremely useful as it'd save me getting the extra box, however it isn't essential. Same with a built in DVD player.Help me hive!

I'm looking for movies and television shows that featured memorable, star-crossed heterosexual couples.
