Week 6: Better off Ted

I hope you enjoyed your mid-session break. This week’s screening is Better off Ted. It’s an extremely funny office-humour-type series with some sort of sci-fi elements.

Ted Crisp loves his job. He works for the team at Veridian Dynamics, where nothing is too far-fetched, or out of the ordinary. An average day for Ted could easily involve creating a suicidal turkey, for instance. The only problem is, Ted is ethical and the company is not.

It stars Jay Harrington and Portia de Rossi. We showed the first episode at a screening last year, and it was quite well-received by those there. We’re starting at 5pm in Rex Vowels like usual – pizza run at 7-ish. If you’re not sure whether you’ll like it, just come for at least the first episode – they’re only half an hour. =)

On a different note, the Lord of the Rings marathon went well on Saturday, but considering the number of interested people I spoke to at O-Week, the turnout was much smaller than I expected. Was mid-session break a bad time? Was there not enough advance warning. If I were to run it again, would you be interested and when would be a good time? Please email me using the contact form.
