Getting over the air stations in the middle of nowhere

We just moved to a new town where, apparently, over the air television signals cannot reach. When I input my address into AntennaWeb, I get this response: "No Stations were predicted for this address. Due to factors such as terrain and distance to broadcasting towers, signal strength calculations have predicted no television stations may be reliably received at this location." Without giving away my home address, I live in zip code 17837. I really would like to get OTA stations without purchasing cable or a satellite. What are my options? [more inside]

Spanish-language movies and television shows that will hook me?

I need to learn Spanish for my international-relations job. I've procrastinated for a long time. I'd really like to get hooked on some Spanish-language television shows and watch some quality Spanish-language movies to help me along. Not interested in anything dubbed. Not interested in anything too soapy, but it doesn't have to be highbrow. English-language entertainment I've enjoyed include The Good Wife, Homeland, the Office, and Pride & Prejudice. Please don't feel limited by this because I'm sure there is much more I would enjoy if I watched more TV. Anything with a good story should do the trick. I'd prefer Latin American Spanish, but mostly I'm just looking for anything that will suck me in.

Hey, it's that guy?

CompleteWasteofQuestionFilter: Who's the fortyish, extremely lanky, English or English-accent-assuming male actor who has a prominent nose and long teeth, and wears his dark hair in a ponytail? I think he has worn a lab coat and/or black trenchcoat in an American television show in the past decade, but I cannot remember which Nerdy Scientist Guy he might have portrayed.

Dodging and burning effects in 1950s television?

Why do black-and-white shows from the 1960s, especially live ones, have what looks to be a burn (dark shadows) around bright objects (around Walt's signature and around people's heads) and dodging effects (white glowing) around dark objects (around the jet-black suit jackets of the announcer and dancers)? I originally thought it was some beleagured production assistant manually burning the What's My Line signatures so that they'd be more high-contrast and thus more readable, but now I'm seeing it everywhere!

Help me remember this "awesome homes" segment from a TV show.

Please help me find this television show, or better yet this exact segment that I can remember watching. The show was about weird or cool homes and as I recall each episode was about 2-4 homes. I can't recall if the show was just about cool homes in the US or if it was about homes all over the world. I can't recall what channel it was on but I'd guess it was HGTV. The exact segment I'm looking for was (as best as I can recall...) about a home: [more inside]

What was this (cable?) US/Canadian comedy sketch from the late 80s?

Sometime in the late 80s I saw a comedy sketch on TV which combined all the major world religions into one quasi-rap song (or madrigal-chant). The only parts I remember are "Sister Mary Elizabeth, hit me with a stick!" "Oh by the way, have you been born again?" and "Hare Krishna Hare Rama, here's your cookbook, where's my dollar?" Anyone know what this was? I promise I didn't make it up.

Buying a TV: high quality, low cost.

I guess specifically I'm wondering what budget televisions (in the $300-400 range-- that and below) are good at the moment. Emphasis on picture quality (over, say, smart TV features and all that nonsense) and a slight, slight preference for more HDMI ports if possible. Though picture quality is key. [more inside]

You Speak Valyrian?

Last week's Game of Thrones was fantastic and reminded me that one of my favorite kinds of scenes in film and television is a scene I like to call the You Have Chosen the Absolute Wrong Person to Fuck With scene. The basic setup is that a character feels entirely positive they have another character under their thumb only to have a moment of panic and terror as they realize precisely the opposite to be true. Can you name terrific examples of this? [more inside]

What was the name of a TV device from the 90's used for trivia/sports?

In the late 80's early 90's there was a device you could use while watching television. From what I remember, this device required some type of subscription and allowed you to play along while watching game shows and sporting events. It was black, had buttons on the sides, and a basic LED screen in the middle with an extendable radio antenna. Does anyone know what this device was? What the name of it was?

Looking for examples of a literary trope translated to a visual medium

Sometimes in a novel, you will have Character A and Character B. Fast forward to the big twist that Character A and Character B ARE THE SAME PERSON! Obviously this doesn't work when the novel is adapted for the screen, and I'm looking for examples of adaptations that had to deal with this, and how they dealt with it, and any sort of critique of how it was dealt with in the movie/television show.

The Boy Who Read Too Much

Childhood Books: When I was a kid, I had a short illustrated book about The Boy Who Read Too Much or The Boy Who Didn't Like Television or something.

How to go from zero to TV?

We haven't had a proper TV in over a decade. I would like to have something other than my laptop to watch streaming media, DVDs, Netflix, etc. Can you explain how this works in 2013? I imagine we'd buy something like this Samsung LED HDTV and some kind of speakers. Then what? Do we plug it into a laptop? What exactly is Apple TV and how does it stack up against Roku?

Which is truly better? Cable or Dish Network?

One of the longest-running modern-day battles is that of Cable vs. Dish Network. Both seem to basically offer the same stuff. Most everything I read says Dish Network offers everything Cable does, except it's cheaper. Which is better and why? Does Dish Network really go out when it rains or is cloudy? Do you have experience with both and a compelling reason for one over the other? Thanks in advance.

So Sunday night at the SAG Awards, "Downton Abbey" actress Phyllis Logan hollered, "Shut the French windows!" when the show won an award. Is this a common Scottish/English saying? A pop-culture reference? Just a British version of "well, butter mah biscuits"? Any information would be appreciated.
