It's available in the U.S. on Amazon. We ended up buying all the seasons (at $4.99 each, a bargain). Haven't seen this clip, though!

ETA: Such baby faces! For some reason I've always thought of Stephen Fry as being older than Hugh Laurie, but maybe not.

It's not perfect - it doesn't contain any Tolkien references. You will need to combine it with the previous video to get that.

That was cool. I love food science. I make a lot of stuff from scratch. Now I want my own liquid nitrogen. :P

Foyle, Arms, and Hogg give you the History of Music in five minutes!



(just because it's all wrong doesn't mean it's not history)

<aside>It's actually "Foil, Arms and Hog" but I always seems to spell at least one of them wrong! Normally Hogg...</aside>

If you're a geek, you know about this already! But even if you do, it's nice to see Patrick make the announcement, and get all emotional doing it.

I’m excited about this one. I may end up getting the CBS All Access thing for a while.

I haven’t seen more than the first few of the other new Star Trek. I understand they got better (more like Star Trek—it’s a philosophy, not just a space action show). I might try to catch up on them.

I love this. Its in both Irish and English, almost like a beat poem. Its translated in the subtitles, but I love how she rhymes both languages sometimes with each other (a bit like Lin Manuel does with Spanish in In the Heights). Its also a pretty powerful statement on feminism in sport.

You can just come take some of mine from around my yard.
(The stuff is basically just the worst weed. It takes over everything and grows absurdly fast and huge and is practically unstoppable. I've grown to hate the stuff.)

That lady doesn't seem like quite the badass though.
