So does this podcast still count as being late if 1 of the 3 TV shows we cover hasn't aired yet? It does? *sigh*

My Firefly commentaries through the entire series are coming to an end with the thirteenth episode, Heart Of Gold. It seems a house of independent "companions" have got themselves into a world of trouble. One of the girls is pregnant by a powerful sociopath who will stop at nothing to claim his baby. Inara asks Malcolm and the crew of Serenity for help against this madman, and before you know it, it's The Jerry Springer Show with horses and lasers.
Please join me as I talk about the second season that never was, Shawna Trpcic's inspired costume designs and the search for Vera. As is per usual with these Firefly commentaries, please listen for my preemptive countdown before starting the show on your DVD.
....And oh yeah, Bwah!

Directed by DJ Caruso, Disturbia is about a troubled teen placed under house arrest. He's got an ankle bracelet that prevents him from going beyond his front yard. To make matters worse, an insanely hot girl moves in next door, and he's pretty sure his other neighbor is an elusive serial killer. But, Carrie-Anne Moss plays the boy's mother, so at least there's that.
Please join me as I go over some of the finer points of this surprisingly intense and well-crafted thriller. A few topics of discussion include comparisons to Fright Night, Cherish and Rear Window. I also ponder the absence of car alarms and a mother's intuition. :)
Just as with other movie commentaries, please listen for my preemptive countdown before starting your DVD.
