Girl Number 9

James Moran, writer for Torchwood, Doctor Who and some other things, has written and co-directed a new web series called Girl Number 9. Two of its stars are Gareth David-Lloyd, Ianto from Torchwood, and Tracy-Ann Oberman, Yvonne Hartmann, the director of Torchwood One on Doctor Who season two. The first episode is available now and the next five episodes will be released once a day Monday through Friday next week. I haven't gotten a chance to watch it yet but I'm pretty excited about it.

I will say that from everything I've seen about it so far, the warning on the video on the website linked above is true. It's going to be a bit violent and disturbing and not meant for kids or young teenagers. That totally would have made me watch it back when I was 13, I will admit.

Mythbusters Geek-Out

I was with my dad on Monday when we started talking about Mythbusters. I told him that Adam Savage (as donttrythis) and Grant Imahara (as grantimahara) both use Twitter and often post set pics. That led to me making this tweet.
I think telling my dad that @grantimahara and @donttrythis sometimes post set pics may have inadvertently got him into Twitter. Whoops.
Of course I knew making this tweet meant that Grant and Adam would probably see it. I didn't expect it to lead to a response from either of them.
Then Adam Savage tweeted this.

Any response at all was cool. That one in particular was great. Forget my dad, I'm impressed by that picture.
