What’s the point of dropping a few Benjamins on a tablet if you can’t watch video on-the-go? Although much fuss has been made of Cupertino’s reluctance to add Flash to its line of iOS devices, the kings of content (read: networks) are still scheming up ways to port the prime time eye candy to your portable slates. Shoring up that streaming divide are a trio of new apps from NBC, TNT and TBS that deliver full episodes of the networks’ fodder to your iPad, albeit with some authentication required. Unlike other premium mobile video services, these three apps come free of charge. So, go ahead and hit up the source below to get your SVU to go.
Question by Anonymous: Where is the best place to watch full tv episodes for free online (with a minimum amount of ads)?
I have been searching every where online for a reliable place to watch full tv episodes (I’m looking for a website that has the episodes of Pretty Little Liars). However, usually the sites I visit have tons of ads and pop ups (stuff like “get a $ 1,000 Walmart gift card! or “get a free iPad!”). Either that, or they ask you to take a survey, such as a human verification test. I know there’s Hulu, but they only provide the last five episodes of Pretty Little Liars. I also know Sidereel too, but they only give you the links to the episodes, and usually the links have popups too. Can someone help me?
Answer by Donnalynn67
hulu. i use it. there are limited commercial ads in the eps. like maybe 3-4 per hour ep.

We have high hopes that Google TV will evolve into something magical and wondrous over the next year or so as its namesake adds apps and features to flesh out the platform’s somewhat underwhelming current state. Today, though, it just got a little less attractive thanks to a move by Viacom to block full episodes from streaming on your Logitech Revues and your Sony Internet TVs and the like. We’ve confirmed with our own Revue that attempting to stream episodes from network sites like MTV, Nickelodeon, and Comedy Central show messages like “this content is not available for your device,” which is an unfortunate and frustrating change. Yes, the user agent tweak still works, but wouldn’t it be nice if we could all just get along? Surely Google is still working on its content partnership agreements and hopefully things will improve in the future, but given how friendly the company’s past dealings with Viacom have been we’re not optimistic about this particular front.
Cthulhu Max rampages the city. Image: TellTale Games
Below, GeekTeen John gives his take on the latest TellTale Games offering in the five-part comedy saga “Sam & Max .”
The best part about Telltale Games is the intense season finales. The final chapter to the latest Sam & Max adventure, The Devil’s Playhouse, is no different. In The City That Dares Not Sleep, the game suddenly becomes twisted and dark as the villains’ master plan is unveiled and all chaos breaks loose. But the finale does manage to keep the wacky hijacks and the upbeat tone that are the core of Sam & Max.
For an episode which wraps up an entire season, The City That Dares Not Sleep has a simple plot: Max has turned into a giant Lovecraft-inspired monster, and Sam must organize a rescue team to be eaten by Max so they can reverse the change. They have to work their way through Maxâ€™s bizarre body, where all the organs are completely furnished living spaces, and get up to the brain to remove the tumor infecting giant Max. But what Sam discovers inside Maxâ€™s brain might leave your jaw on the floor.
The game is fun to play, even without being able to use Max’s psychic toys, which were a powerful puzzle-solving tool in previous episodes. Many of the puzzles are simpler because of it. In fact, this game felt more like earlier seasons of Sam & Max. And there are actually many references to the comics and previous games, including the 1993 LucasArts game, in a certain spot that Max seems to be very sensitive about. The twists are ingenious, and many players won’t be expecting them. (I certainly wasn’t.) I wonâ€™t give away the ending, but it will leave you shocked.
Now, I thought that this was a great episode by itself. But The City That Dares Not Sleep has problems fitting into the entire season. Other Telltale games, such as Tales of Monkey Island, have done a good job of connecting individual episodes into one story line. All the episodes could be played and enjoyed by themselves, but they all had an underlying connection that was tied up very nicely in the finale. With Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse, most of the connections to other episodes are just a means of getting to this last one. At the end of every episode in this season, problems are introduced that have no bearing on events of the previous episode. Characters and settings are reused but only for the purposes of the current episode.
But the thing is, Sam & Max have never really had a complex, coherent story like Monkey Island. They have always had short, crazy, adventures. Maybe itâ€™s just a pet peeve of mine. But it’s certainly not enough to ruin my experience and enjoyment of the game.
So would I recommend this game and season? Yes. It’s fun to play, listen and watch. It has wonderfully written dialogue. And could keep you glued to your seat for three or four hours. Teens and tweens will enjoy the subtle humor. The younger crowd might not understand all the jokes, but there’s nothing here thatâ€™s inappropriate for kids.

GeekTeen Review: Sam & Maxâ€™s The City That Dares Not Sleep
I must be seeing things… is that an official WWE YouTube page, and one that already has last night’s episode of Monday Night Raw online? This is so unlike WWE, embracing technology. They must have hired someone new in recent weeks, someone who told them that, you know, the Internet isn’t merely for â€œgeeksâ€ anymore.
So the YouTube page is up and running, and there are, in fact, past episodes of shows like Monday Night Raw and Friday Night Smackdown. Commercial-free, too.
This is a big deal, not necessarily because WWE is now offering shows online, but because WWE is offering shows online. This could be the most technology-averse entertainment company out there. They make the record labels look like 13-year-old Internet whiz kids. Case in point: the company only just recently launched an iPhone App, several years after the App Store’s dÃ©but. (Accent over the e to show my fanciness.)
Another piece of evidence: play-by-play announcer Michael Cole, during the first few weeks of NXT, teasing people who use the Internet, specifically Twitter. Good one, WWE: you’re so desperate to be considered mainstream entertainment and yet you bash a tool that so many celebrities use to great effect. (You’ll note that WWE Superstars now tweet with reckless abandon.)
Now, I could use this moment to praise last night’s angle, embedded here, but I get the feeling that, oh, maybe 2 percent of you will have any idea what I’m talking about; I’ve already used up enough of your time.
If there’s one truism in pro-wrestling it’s this: everybody loves a good invasion angle.

I was interested in watching several Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT movies and episodes with the character Android 17 in them. I know that he is in the last part of season four, the early part of season five, and The History of Trunks DVD… but I would like to know if he is in any other movies or episodes (even if just for a moment).
Thank you for any information you can give me.
