WebTV Week in Review 4/29/12 - Jedi Bubblebath, The Guild, & more!

Nightfly recommends his favorite webisodes, shorts, and clips from the previous week.






Nightfly's WebTV Week in Review  (week of 4/29/12)
...transferring data now...

Well, it appears this column has reached the end of the road here at The Outhouse and it's going out with an early salute to Mother's Day and the female gender in general.

On the subject of Mother's Day, consider participating in the poignant, moving campaign known as No Mother's Day taking place May 13th. Lend your support to help demonstrate that every mother counts by "disappearing" in honor of, and to raise awareness for, the hundreds of thousands of women who die each year from complications arising during pregnancy and childbirth. Mothers (and supporters) are encouraged to refuse gifts and refrain from shopping or emailing, etc. to "disappear." The hope is that folks "disappearing" this year will make it possible for more Mothers to be alive to celebrate the day next year.


My second bonus video this week is for a new (upcoming) YouTube channel created by Jon Avnet & Rodrigo Garcia promising original web series, short films and documentaries about and starring women, called WIGS (Where It Gets Interesting). WIGS premieres May 14th.


Other videos focusing on females from last week I thought noteworthy included this ten minute short about the Girl Scouts titled, Girl Scouts: Inspired to Lead, posted last Wednesday, as well as this trailer for a new web series about four moms launching today called, Little Women Big Cars. Amy Yasbeck, Julie Warner, Romy Rosemont and Kristy Swanson star as the four moms who Little Women Big Cars revolves around - watch a trailer for it here and catch its debut later today.

Lastly, before moving onto my main group of clips, it mattered to me to present this PSA featuring Victoria Justice titled, "Act Out Loud," addressing May being National Youth Traffic Safety Month. Please give it a look, especially if you're a teen driver.

To close out this final WebTV entry I've included the two TED Talks that've become standard but I also gladly add this link to an informative Joss Whedon interview clip (re: The Avengers) here I think you'll enjoy, and the web series trailer (directly below).

Next month (June 18th) Season Two of original Hulu web series Leap Year debuts, this season boasting guest appearances from Whedonverse faves Emma Caulfield and Eliza Dushku. Check out its preview teaser (below).


Lastly, my favorite two TED Talks from the latest batch that appeared online last week.

TED Talks - Gary Kovacs: Tracking the Trackers  [Runtime 6.39]  {posted 5/3 via TEDTalks}


Fans of Justine Ezarik (a.k.a. iJustine) should unlock this iJustine sticker I only just found at GetGlue! I didn't even know Justine had a page there - keep abreast of all her latest web clips by subscribing to her YouTube channel here.

Before saying goodbye and putting this column to bed, I wanted to share the exciting news that I'll next be writing for Geek Nation (launching soon).
To those who found these columns interesting or entertaining, thanks... and I want to ask you to please consider following my future column when it launches. Until then, I'll be publishing a couple more TV Week in Reviews throughout May. I sincerely hope I've helped you discover some new YouTube channels and/or shows you didn't otherwise know of and I (of course, as always) highly encourage you to Stay Jacked-In and Happy iViewing! It's been fun.
