Revision3
« on: March 18, 2012, 12:13:22 pm »
I'm constantly in and out of different media, be it music, DVD's, Cable TV, etc....that I always don't have enough time to spare when factoring in work. Sometimes I have just a little time to kill that can't be filled with a movie or whatever. Enter Internet TV. Ever since hooking up my Roku and doing plenty of searches for Channels to add, I've come to the realization that Revision3 so far is the best of the bunch. They have a ton of variety for shows that I get to watch and most of the episodes run anywhere from 5 minutes to 10 minutes. Certain shows do have the occasional 'Specials' and those can average around 20 minutes and longer.

So, that brings me to this new Sub-Board for any show you are watching online or on Roku or similar devices.. I will be adding the shows I'm currently checking out on a regular basis to the board. See ya there..........

My day hasn't officially started until I watch my Totally Rad Show (and Film State on Tuesdays and Fridays).  I do miss me some Diggnation though, but I can understand why that finally ended.  It was interesting to see that evolve from a videotaped low-res show to the point where we got an HD show in front of a cheering crowd direct to our TVs.

Totally Rad Show is the first thing I check out everyday on Revision. But lately Alex and Dan are getting on my nerves. You have Dan who has a lot of trouble trying to conceptualize what he is thinking into words and it gets frustrating watching him talk. Alex on the other hand interrupts everyone lately and that irks me even more. Also, his reviews lately have sucked. Go back and watch his review of Game Of Thrones Season 1 recap. He made himself look pretty foolish on that. Watching the other two guys react to his review was....PRICELESS.

I've checked out Variant, the new Comic book show. If you want to call it a show. Anyway, I really don't like the host. I love the concept of the show, I just wish it was anyone other than Arris Quinones hosting it. The way he talks irritates me. It's not so much how he talks but the way he jerks his head and body around when enunciating words that makes me feel like I have had 20 cups of coffee to start my day. Ugh.

I'm liking TRS more when they play games and so on but I also miss when they would go out and do crazy stuff like geocaching or running a marathon or Raised On Rad.

The problem with the reviews... especially the movie reviews... is now Danny is an actual movie director and he doesn't want to comment.  Which I understand but he usually had good insights and the show is robbed of that now.

Their comic book reviews I've never been that fond of.  I like that there's a comic-centric show (though I read very few comics now) but Itried the show and didn't care for the host either.  I guess I want more in-depth content.

I get why Dan doesn't do reviews anymore, as he doesn't want to burn any bridges with potential actors and writers for future gigs. But I think he is worrying too much about offending people at the expense of his own show.

Which I totally understand, but I agree.  Maybe they could bring in some other people (like they have Peter from /Filmcast on every now and then) to give the show a little more content when they do film reviews).

Adam Sessler Joins Rev3Games!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzKNdPMI9-s


With G4 deciding to basically bite the hands that feed them with it's gaming programs and move onto a different format, many of it's top talent, the biggest being Adam Sessler have refused to resign with the network and have made their exodus to find greener pastures. Not much was known about where Adam would end up at. Well, he has officially joined Rev3Games. Up till now, I really haven't been a fan or even a follower of the Channel because I just don't like one of the host. I don't know his name, because I don't care too. It's the dude with the pompadour. Anyway, with Adam on board, I'm definitely going to be checking in from time to time to see what he has up his sleeve.

Totally Rad Show: A Look Back - Episode 1 (Part 1)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQiW3yVUVZU

Wow. I was not expecting to hear the news that the gang has decided to end TRS. I was pretty confident that the show would be around for another 2-3 years. Bummer. I may not have always agreed with their reviews, but the show for the most part was very entertaining and it was the first show that I would check out daily on Revision. I can't see any other show coming along and replacing this one any time soon. So, the final 2 weeks of TRS will be a retrospective selected episodes as they give a running commentary as they watch their favorite episodes from the past.

i KNOOOOOWWW... TRS is always the first thing I watch when I get up, gets my motor going.  And the fact I'll never be reviewed on the show is a real bummer.  But as we were saying, the show would have to change it up in a big way to stick around.

Adam Sessler joining Rev3 is a long-time coming, I'm glad to see it.  Honestly, with "We Come From The Future" ending and now TRS, I was thinking they might be boxing up at Rev3 or doing a big reassemble after being bought.  Is Filmstate really going to be the only thing on there that I watch?

I honestly don't know if Revision3 is going to be something I stick with in the long run now that TRS has made it official they are ending. Sessler does offer a lifeline, but it remains to be seen where he takes it content wise. I have dropped quite a few shows from my watch list on Rev3 because they just don't have much to offer in the way of entertainment, certainly not on par with TRS.

I'm feeling the exact same way, I'm sorry to say.  I used to watch TWiT all the time but haven't in years, I don't like the idea of losing all this good quality independent entertainment (I do listen to some shows, but it's not the same as having content right on the TV).

Sessler's Something (Episode 5: Newtown, Videogames, and the Issues of Violence)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51n2CAm4_8Q&list=UUQXR8pItAoKDAJSbphFxbrg&index=10

I noticed this last week, but I'm just now posting about today. Sessler's Something has gotten it's own sub-channel within the larger Revision3 Channel Menu. So, you can get your fix at the new channel, but he will still be contributing other stories and information news with his other sub-channel on Rev3Games. Either way, pretty good so far.

Why did they remove The Totally Rad Show from the Revision Channel on Roku? There are a few shows that have been cancelled for quite some time that are still on the Channel. Diggnation is STILL on. So, what gives?

No idea.  Though I suppose it's far more "current' than Diggnation's "hey, this is funny when we're drunk" focus.

I actually haven't caught up with anything the crew is doing since the show went off, which I feel kinda bad about.  It's like the friend you tell you'll write to when you move away.

Well for me, I was still hitting some of the older episodes since I came to the show late. So imagine my surprise that the entire list of available episodes were pulled. Yeah, this happened pretty much after the final episode aired. I just haven't vented till now because I was hopeful that it was a glitch or something and that it would be fixed. That hasn't happened. This is me p*ssed.
