Around the Tubes - 1/25/13

I have gotten a plethora of cool press releases have been flooding my inbox recently that you may find interesting. This post will include blurbs on The Abominable Snowman, Conan, Adam Ant, House of Cards, V, The Eagles, The Cold Light of Day, That Obscure Object of Desire, Bangkok Assassins, The Liability, Silver Rush, Doomsday Preppers, and Upload with Shaquille O’Neal.

- It has been bitterly cold here for the last week and that looks to continue through the weekend, so if you are wisely staying in, the latest Syfy movie The Abominable Snowman premieres tomorrow at 9:00. Check out the trailer below:

- If you remember a couple weeks back I mentioned that Conan would be doing an all crowd sourced episode, well a date for air has been set so tune in January 31 to see if your submission made it to air. You can also follow along with Conan O’Brien who will blog live during the episode through the Team Coco Tablet App.

- You cannot have an eighties party without playing Goody Two-Shoes and now Adam Ant is finally entering the new millennium with his first album in seventeen-years this week: Adam Ant Is the BlueBlack Hussar Marrying the Gunner's Daughter. You can also check out his music video for the lead single Cool Zombie.

- Netflix famously rebooted Arrested Development, but their first attempt at original content hits the streaming site February 1. And by hit, I mean hit, all thirteen episodes of House of Cards will be available to stream next Friday. Based on the BBC miniseries of the same name, this wicked political drama starring Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and Kate Mara, slithers beneath the curtain and through the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington, D.C.

- Cee-Lo’s protégé V has just released a video for Free Bird (yes, that Free Bird) in honor of the recent inauguration. The song will be on her upcoming Visitors Collection EP.

- The Eagles documentary History of the Eagles just premiered at Sundance and for those that could not make it to Utah, Showtime will be airing the film in two parts, part one will debut Friday February 15 at 8:00 while part two will air the following night at the same time.

- Out on blu-ray and / or DVD next week include The Cold Light of Day starring the future Superman Henry Cavill, That Obscure Object of Desire co-written and directed by two-time Academy Award nominee Luis Buñuel, Bangkok Assassins choreographed by famed stuntman Somchai Munma, and The Liability starring Tim Roth.

- Film crews for the Discovery Channel series were onboard Odyssey's ships during 2012 operations and captured the record-breaking recovery of 48 tons of silver bullion from the Gairsoppa site. Silver Rush Premieres February 12 at 10:00.

- Who says you cannot find love at the end of the world? Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the February 12th episode of Doomsday Preppers will feature Jeff, a bachelor on the lookout for love, not only work on his bunker, but also go on multiple dates to find his prepper mate.

- New show alert! Upload with Shaquille O’Neal is set to launch February 21 on TruTV where the basketball great will put his own hilarious spin on online videos. Each week on the show, Shaq and his comic friends – co-hosts Gary Owen (Think Like a Man) and Godfrey (The Mr. Men Show) – will scour the internet looking for the funniest online videos and comment on them.
