Tell me everything there is to know about TV tuner cards.

An old cartoon I saw on television

In an old cartoon clip, a rider who was perhaps but not definitely yosemite sam goes to jump on his horse again, to ride off. The horse takes exception to this and nays: "Whoooahoahoah no ya don't!" and if I remember correctly, proceeds to stand up, reach around, and yank the rider off his back. What cartoon is this? Super Friday bonus points for a YouTube link.

What to watch after Breaking Bad?

Have loved Breaking Bad, but it's nearing its end. What are some other high production value TV thrillers should I watch? I like season-long story arcs, suspense, and excellent writing and acting. I love BBC's Sherlock, 24, Dexter, The Sopranos, and Game of Thrones.

She's full of seeeeeecrets

I've recently been watching Twin Peaks again, and I've been wondering... to people who actually watched it air in its original run, what was it like seeing something like this on TV? Did you have watching parties that I've heard so much about? Was the reveal of the killer and the twists and turns along the way surprising? Did you watch until the end of the second season, and were you disappointed when it got the plug pulled on it? [more inside]

Can you help me remember this show?

Early examples of GPS-type things in movies/TV?

A researcher at my workplace has asked for help finding examples of his topic, early examples of "GIS (Geographic Information Systems) or GPS (Global Positioning Systems) technologies in film and TV", "examples of early precursors to map related technologies". I found someone else's Ask from earlier this year that hits on some likely ones, but he's on the lookout for older and more diverse instances if you can think of any. More details and examples below the fold! [more inside]

My TV is dead.

I have an Olevia LCD TV bought in 2008. For about a week, it would have no sound on any input after being turned on but a quick power cycle would fix it. Now it's stone-cold dead. No glowing LED on the power button like normal and it is definitely plugged in properly to a live outlet. What should I do now? [more inside]

Was läuft am Fernsehen?

I'm moving to Berlin next month. What should I watch on German tv? I'm looking for something, preferably weekly primetime, with a storyline that will pull me in, and language that's hopefully not too obscuredly regional or slangy or jargony. I could be happy with any genre. I'm looking to improve my German. Currently my German is clunky but functional. I will also of course be out and about, taking courses, finding my way around, speaking with people. Also, just, what's good on tv in Germany?
