Looky what I did!

So you remember how I was raving about Cracked earlier? I decided to do something about it, since there doesn't appear to be a fandom per se, yet.

Seriously, this show made me not only start a new comm, but made me figure out (with lots of help!) how to do custom CSS and make a banner and an icon. For anyone who knows how useless I am at this crap, you will know just how big a deal this is for me!

The episodes are all streaming for free here, but alas appear to be only viewable in Canada. I am going to do my best to find a way for all my international friends to watch as well, should any of you be interested.

:::ETA::: I have been linked to a place where my US friends can watch the pilot! HERE

And if tomorrow is quieter at work (please, God, oh please), there might even be fic.

If I have piqued your interest, come on by! I can try to arrange for episodes to be available to you, and I'd appreciate any pimpage at all. :)

WELL, FART. "Not available"?? Bah, humbug!

Yeah, CBC appears to be keeping its Canadian content all to itself. D:

If you have Dropbox or something similar, I can probably arrange to slip you the pilot and/or other episodes. :)

I don't have a Dropbox of my own but I'll look into it. I wouldn't mind something new and juicy to watch!

I'm looking into trying to find a way to upload the eps for people.

I'll send you a drop-box invite. It means I get a bit of extra space if you accept from me, which in turn means more sharing! \o/

Dude, Dropbox says you already have an account with the email I have for you. Maybe you created one and forgot? :)

Huh. See, I share one with Monicawoe but I thought she was the primary holder and I was just allowed access but hey, drop it in there! I'll pull it out. Do I need to do something to facilitate this?

Erm, I don't think so. I am cleaning out my folder as we speak, and hopefully I'll have enough space to share the pilot episode with you. :)

You've really got me intrigued with this! I am definitely checking it out, for sure. Too bad it's only in Canada, but I guess being able to watch kind of makes up for all the times I've tried to watch something online and it comes up 'U.S. only'...

Feels a bit like karma, doesn't it? I'm sad, though, because I want everyone to get to know this show!

Now look what you've done. You made me watch the pilot today, and I actually quite liked it. Not crazy about it (yet?), but I'll definitely keep watching. I had to smile to myself when I realized there were two ReGenesis actors in it, and the police building exteriors are of the same building as the one they used for NorBAC (i.e. the Hamilton City Hall). :-)

Right? So exciting! I can't wait to see who else will be on the show. It's got so much promise!

Okay, you made me curious. The pilot is downloading now. I'll let you know. :)
