Nightfly's iTV Week in Review  (week of 2/26/12)
...transferring data now...

As a person who gives credit where credit is due, I'd like to start this week's column with a nod to web series curator, [url=http://twitter.com/webseriesdirect]Web Series Directory[/url]. Much like the sources cited in my first couple columns, [url=http://twitter.com/webseriesdirect]Web Series Directory[/url] has fast become an invaluable resource for compiling my weekly column. [url=http://www.ign.com/]IGN[/url] up'd their webisode game by creating a brand new YouTube channel, called [url=http://www.youtube.com/user/START]START[/url], dedicated web series and online reports. Read what lovely [url=http://twitter.com/Jessica_Chobot]Jess Chobot[/url] has to say about [url=http://www.youtube.com/user/START]START[/url] and her new series on it [url=http://www.ign.com/blogs/jess-ign/2012/02/03/mix-it-up-with-mixd-reviews-only-on-igns-new-channel-start]here[/url].

Last week I mentioned the PBS Online Film Festival which'll bring twenty original short films competing for your votes and, as promised, its first week ushered in a compelling first four competitors. I honestly didn't watch the longest one, titled [url=http://www.pbs.org/special/film-festival/real-stories/once-upon-rooftop/]Once Upon a Rooftop[/url] (about Hong Kong rooftop dwellers), not because of indifference but only because I haven't carved out the half hour yet. The moving short, [url=http://www.pbs.org/special/film-festival/real-stories/i-survived/]I Survived[/url], featuring Sgt. Tapia recalling being blown up and trapped (on fire) is likely to affect you deeply,... while the remaining two shorts concern vanishing industries and interests. I appreciated both business related clips but being a music fan I preferred the one I embedded over the other one, titled [url=http://www.pbs.org/special/film-festival/real-stories/seltzer-works/]Seltzer Works[/url].
[url=http://www.pbs.org/special/film-festival/real-stories/archive/]The Archive[/url], featuring Paul Mawhinney presenting his truly incredible record collection that he can't find a home for.

* This week's new shorts (collectively addressing "Growing Pains") are already up but you can still vote for your favorites from last week, all filed under the label "Real Stories."

[url=http://youtu.be/PN5_FK5EdaY]Black Diamond - Explosive Ski Run[/url]  is a cool little clip that popped up last Friday and successfully grabbed my attention. This death defying clip even sports a complimentary [url=http://youtu.be/Y9KIJrEkK5s]BTS Making Of[/url] vid to with it. Enjoy.

* watch the [url=http://youtu.be/Y9KIJrEkK5s]BTS Making of[/url] this video [url=http://youtu.be/Y9KIJrEkK5s]here[/url].

[url=http://www.cbs.com/]CBS[/url]' web series, [url=http://www.cbs.com/shows/csi/anatomy_of_a_tv_hit/]Anatomy of a TV Hit: C.S.I.[/url], is still dissecting the "[url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/csi-crime-scene-investigation/stealing-home-3042183/]Stealing Home[/url]" episode - in the seventh (and most recent) entry it's all about "[url=http://www.cbs.com/e/usNMTHdtuDJjCiwjCNGs_chVPZygWKaJ/cbs/1/]Makeup and Special Effects Makeup for "Stealing Home.""[/url]

Now onto my preferred picks from last week.
