Something to watch while exercising?

Looking for good video blogs to watch while riding my exercise bike ... especially any indie game review video blogs!

My flatmate has a great exercise bike that is positioned such that I can't get comfortable playing my PSP while I'm on it. The CD rack right next to the bike makes a great laptop stand, so I was watching Australian MasterChef episodes on it while sweating away. I'm not really interested in the Celebrity version of the show, so I was hoping for a weekly video blog/review or something similar.

I remember seeing a great indie review video blog that I bookmarked, right before my laptop failed. But I'll take any recommendations, food, music, tv shows etc.

Thanks!

PS not sure if video "blog" is the right term...

PPS If you make a bideo blog or whatever, feel free to share, don't be shy!

zero punctuation. Short but worthy. The escapist has some other things that may tickle your fancy.

Also ABC iview has a metric shittonne of stuff. If you're Aussie, your isp may not even count the downloads.

Revision 3's Bytejacker seems to be exactly what you are looking for, and there is a metric crapton of other video on that site to keep your mind busy while you bang out the klicks.

FWIW, I watch Top Gear episodes when I'm on my bike, the fast car segments keep me pushing hard, and the laughs keep my mind off how tired I am.

Angry Video Game Nerd isn't for new titles, but is good for reliving video game nostalgia, even if you don't care for the attempts at humor. Plus, there's a lot of videos to blow through.

Speaking of pop culture nostalgia, check out Nostalgia Chick. (Maybe "Nostalgia Critic" on that same site, as well, although I find his videos too outright annoying to sit through.)

Not video game reviews, but really fun anyway: The Legend of Neil and The Guild.
