2001: A Who Odyssey

Disclosure: I was not much of a Dr. Who fan until Christopher Eccleston took the role in the early part of this decade, and I have only seen a handful of the episodes starring David Tennant (including the sublimely terrifying "Blink"). Having said that, I must admit that the new series is everything I usually demand not just from good science fiction television, but from good television, period, and I'm looking forward to firing up the Roku player to watch the second and third seasons soon. (Perhaps this Thanksgiving?)

More to disclose: Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey is one of my favorite movies of all time, and one of only three masterpieces the genre has ever produced in the medium. (The other two are Tartovsky's Solaris and Ridley Scott's Bladerunner).

So I guess it should surprise no one that I had a complete dorkgasm as I was watching the below video. (Thanks to Chris Roberson for the link.)
