Nightfly's iTV Week in Review  (week of 3/25/12)
...transferring data now...

You may've noticed an increase in content I feature here week to week. You might not know it to look at the multiple links offered this time but I actually excluded at least as many as I chose to include. With the Nerdist Channel and Geek & Sundry launching today I look forward to having even more quality choices to share with fellow webseries fans starting next week. If you haven't caught this promo clip yet take a look at the lineup of shows rolling out on Hardwick's Nerdist net here.

Last Thursday (3/29) a trio of "very rare" Buffy the Vampire Slayer BTS clips hit the web I'd personally never seen before; perhaps you haven't either. This first vid is raw set footage from the episode, "Helpless," and the next two are 1998 interview snippets. To see Joss, Gellar and Boreanaz reply to questions click here, and for the rest of the cast (namely Alyson, Seth, Tony, CC, Brendon and Sutherland) click here. If you're a Buffy fan I predict you'll get a kick out of 'em.

Before getting to the many videos and links spotlighted this week (two of which focus on Neil DeGrasse Tyson) I wanted to show you a couple short films directed by a pair of actresses I'm really big fans of.
