We at next-episode.net appreciate Uwe Boll.
In fact we even have a little shrine of his' at our imaginary offices. We pray to the shrine every time the genius German director releases a new movie.
We were, of course, right after him after he challenged a couple of nerds, errr, movie journalists and lowtax to a boxing match.
And we are right next to you on your next quest Uwe! You kick Michael Bay's ass!
And ask for Scarlet Johanson, or that other chick from Transformers, telephone numbers while you're at it.

I promised awesome news, as I was AWOL for a couple of days, due to too much work and too much rest after that. Its Easter here, we have a couple of days off and I have absolutely nothing awesome to share.
Anyway, theres a Heroes episode floating around named Heroes Unmasked and dubbed S02E00, so if youre a fan check it out. I havent had the time yet, but if its Heroes it cant be bad, right? In other sci-fi news Battlestar Galactica hit the ground running - if you were wondering weather to watch the new season after the not so strong finish of the third one, well watch it. Its worth your time.
Also try to use the tip line people! Its located to the right of the link that opens up the comments. Use it for show news, general news, movie recommendations, feedback, submitting funny videos, anything! Believe me I read it and will start using it very soon, as soon as work backs off a bit. Not really the awesomest news article on the intarwebs, but thats what you get on Easter when I have more productive things to do. Like kill hookers, snort coke, rob people and generally be a bad, bad eastern European boy.

This is something I began developing few months ago.
Didn't really have the time to finish it (you may find that the "what is this" and the "feedback" links are not yet working, and the whole "design" of the thing is kinda missing).
Yet - the whole functionality of the site is there, and I find myself using it almost daily - to keep some links that I don't have time to check on the current PC I'm on - so I decided to share it with you and get some opinions ...
So - there: http://keep-a-link.com

And we’re back to our amazing practice of copy/pasting stuff from tv.com and calling it “news updates” or even “journalism” when we’re alone in the bed late at night looking for comfort. It really wasn’t our intention to make you sad, but if you felt that way please donate! You can find the link in the bottom of the site. We’ll use the money to buy a car.
I was actually supposed to advertise the awesome tip line, that Santah made today, but since I can’t really find it on the site I'm skipping that and pushing a totally different feature. So... Donate today!
Err… Anyway, the actual news is that Alan Tudyk, aka the pilot from Firefly, is going to star in the pilot of Will and Grace, without the redhead. No, really. I’m not joking. David Kohan and Max Whatshisface, the guys behind Will and Grace are making a comedy series about a gay man living with his best friend. And that friend is male. And totally not gay. Honest.
Ps: look for the tip line. It’s there. Send tips. Promise not to give credit.
The creator of extremely popular among Next-Episode staff, defunct series, Arrested Development - Mitch Hurwitz – has a new project. It is a cartoon show called “Sit Down, Sit Up” and the plot is about several staff members of a school that are more interested in themselves, than the students they’re supposed to be mentoring.
But, apparently, that’s not news, as it was announced months ago. The actual news is that Hurwitz recently brought on three of our favorite Arrested Development actors for the show, as some US magazine I’m not giving credit to reports. Jason Bateman (Michael Bluth), Will Arnett (Gob Bluth) and Henry Winkler (Barry Zuckerkorn – the lawyer) are adding their voices to an already stellar cast including people from Saturday Night Live, The Boondocks, Cavemen and SpoongeBob.
Our excitement is restricted only by the fact that the show is yet to be approved by Fox. Hey, guess what, we know the script – they’ll approve it, it’ll be awesome, it will run for a couple of season, they’ll stick it in the weirdest time slot, it’ll be shitcanned, end. We’ll all be pissed. I called it.
Since we’ve ran out of relevant news, we’re going back to what we do best. Write about stuff no one cares about and link videos that are only funny to us. And because we’re fresh out of these too, here’s a link to the top hit in youtube after searching “funny video for next episode”. I hope it really is funny, I did not watch it. Anything mocking Lost is worth points in my book, though.
Anyway, a lot of shows are back from that whole WGA fiasco and my “stuff to watch” is gradually growing to the size of Lev Tolostoy’s War and Peace. How is it affecting your free time? Did you pick up a lot of stuff over the break? Are you managing now that most of the good ones are back? You know the drill: leave your thoughts in the comments section.
Lost was hit hard by the WGA strike and lost 3 episodes, cutting the season short to 13. Today, however, tvguide.com revealed that the producers of the show Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof are in discussions with CBS to add an extra hour of Lost at the end of the season.
Were sure that cramming in all those loose plot lines and polar bears into just 13 episodes is extra hard, so were keeping our fingers crossed for an extra show. Lost is returning on the 24th of April and the finale is scheduled for the 22nd of May.
Update: user schneefloeckli77 is reporting that lost is getting a three hour finale - The first hour is airing on May 15th and the next two in a big show on May 29th.
In totally related news, me and Santah had an argument yesterday. Do you think that this movie is fake? Share in the comments section.
Jericho might still be alive. In classic zombie fashion, the show simply refuses to die.
According to some findings by the New York Times, CBS is talking to DirectTV to resurrect the post-apocalyptic show once again. The paper states that several anonymous sources say that CBS is talking to Comcast about “finding new life for Jericho”.
Now, I’m all for end of the world drama, I dig stuff like that, but after butchering the plot to finish the second season short, can the show really come back and be good? I really don’t believe so, but hey, hope dies last, right?
Tv.com recently reported that an Office spin-off is in the works. There aren't many details so far, but we know it will debut some time next February after the superbowl and that the entire Office team will be making the show and some actors from the original might be in it. This will probably not be the rumored solo Dwight Schrute show, though, as Rainn Wilson recently commented that he didn't know anything about this one.
(The following sentеnce has undergone considerable editing, as an admin, that shall remain unnamed, can not understand the high standards in English that I try to enforce on this site.) WE LIKE OFFICE. WE HAPPY.
In related news, there will be a new Office on Friday! If that isn't cause for celebration, I don't know what is.
Edit/Clarification: It's The Office, the US version. -- santah
I finally caught up this weekend and managed to watch the latest (still) South Park - episode 4. Man, oh, man. Classic episode. And I mean it in the best possible way, episodes like this is what got me into watching the show in the first place - smart, sharp and extremely funny commentary of recent events, spiced up with farting, gay jokes and ridicule of all your favorite Internet videos from the last couple of years.
If you used to like South Park, but stopped watching for whatever reason or you never liked the show, and always wondered what the fuss is about - this is the episode to get. I'll just say that the plot is spun around a strike from the WGA (World CANDIAN Association).
(Ok, it may not be a weekly tradition, but I wanted to start off big)
Here's something that caught my attention a few days ago, and is still provoking me to think about some stuff (especially if you're following the progression of the US market crisis right now).
The movie is called Zeitgeist [imdb info], and it's a documentary in 3 parts - religion | 9/11 | us bankers.
Check it out, even if you're not a fan of conspiracy theories.
I've created a thread in the forums to discuss this. It'll be very interesting to hear your opinions ...
A quick note from Arashi: The movie is really worth it if only for the first part. If you're a normal person, though, you'd be cringing and grinding your teeth by the end as it gets ridiculous. I do recommend it, though, there are a lot worse ways to lose two hours... like watching Prison Brake and Lost every week.
We all knew the writers strike will have consequences to our favorite shows and today - something we already knew was happening - was confirmed:
Jericho, Prison Break and Lost have all been canceled.
While we already knew about Jericho and Prison Break, the cancelation of Lost is also something we expected - it costs way too much money to produce, and their ratings weren't that good anymore.
Lost has a few episodes remaining, which according to ABC - will be aired as scheduled before the show ends.
It's a sad day for all TV series fans, a sad day indeed ...
