Friday Fun Stuff: Videos (Again)

Starting with two mashup videos about space!

First, an "inspirational" mashup video made of a bunch of scenes from a bunch of different space movies.

I kind of wish they hadn't included the Star Trek stuff, but it's still pretty good.

Second, on an even less serious note, here's a mashup of Top Gun and Battlestar Galactica :)

Speaking of not being serious, Epic Rap Battles of History Season 4 has started! The first video of the season is Ghostbusters vs Mythbusters

I want the Mythbusters to win (even after the loss of Grant, Tory, and Kari) but i think the Ghostbusters may have gotten a lot of the better lines. Especially since the Mythbusters got stuck with the "i can't think of anything" bit. Definitely bears rewatching and consideration.

And finally, I kind of like Gotham. It's not great, but it is amusing. It doesn't take itself seriously (at least i sure hope it doesn't think it's taking itself seriously) though in a different way from Sleepy Hollow. But one of the biggest ways in which it's amusing is the way it tries to shoehorn in future characters. That's actually one of the things that often bugs me about prequels, the need to make sure the characters from the "old" books that everyone loves make an appearance, but Gotham is so ham-handed about it that i mostly just laugh instead. Which is why this "Gotham Begins" parody is pretty great.

(I'm sorry about the ongoing all videos all the time theme, it's just so easy to toss some up when i'm short on time. But at least they're interesting videos i hope! :)
