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.

This Friday at SpockSoc: Red Dwarf!

Come and see the classic staple of British Sci-Fi comedy. Have any episodes you want to see? Bring them along – DVD, video or computer format, it doesn’t matter. We’ll be showing whatever episodes we happen to have on hand, and maybe possibly the first American and the Japanese pilot episodes.

As ever, screenings start in Goldstein G05 from 5pm – you’ll find a map on our website. Entry is free for members, or $2 otherwise, and there’ll be a pizza run during the night.

Hope to see you there,
