Video of the Week: Grimm – MV

MV means it’s all about the music and pictures… and Grimm is a lush looking series with marvelous location work so as you can guess this fan video is filled with gorgeous imagery. I have a thing for music videos that use instrumental music and it’s used to great effect here. I should warn you, however, that if you can’t deal with bees or rats then this isn’t the video you’re looking for. If you can, you’ll be sucked right in and wondering why you haven’t been watching this little NBC series. (The three best episodes, in my opinion, are “Danse Macabre”, “Organ Grinder” and “Tarantella”.)


Video of the Week: Assassidate

This is HILARIOUS. It’s the first in what I hope is a long series of episodes featuring the Hewlett siblings, David and Kate. If you enjoy it, be sure to click over to their YouTube page and leave them a message. The more feedback, the more views, the better chance that this might become an actual series.

Here’s the description:

“Everyone plays games – so Iain, an introverted Internet nerd, has created an ingenious online dating system which targets a client’s perfect mate by analyzing the way people play them. From World of Warcraft to Angry Birds, Halo to Solitaire, Iain’s technology is so effective that when he creates a test account for his wife, Pam, Assassidate dutifully finds her the perfect man… who sadly turns out not to be Iain!

To add insult to injury, Iain is convinced to sign the company over to (family law lawyer) Emily, or lose it in his impending divorce. But that takes him to a whole new level of hell.

With his new business venture safe for the time being, Iain discovers that his gregarious little sibling isn’t content with being a paper president. Emily has big plans for Iain and “her” She starts exerting her extrovert nature and social savvy over the Assassidate geeks, breathing new life into the company and its otherwise impenetrable world of nerd.

Iain only begrudgingly accepts Emily’s help; even if it’s the best thing for them all. With these two combative siblings at the controls, the game is on!”
