Unlike Ryan and Jenny, I sat out the Interview when it came out in December. The cowardice of Sony and the big theater chains ticked me off and I’m really still annoyed. Being out of town for the holidays, I also couldn’t make it Alamo Drafthouse (I would only give Sony my cash if Gabbing Geek Hero, Tim League and the Alamo Drafthouse benefited).

But now, I can watch it Saturday to see what the fuss is all about.
Remember when scientists thought there was indirect proof that there might be some planets outside our solar system? Well thanks to sciencey scientists, we now know of over 1000 exoplanets. We even found two that were so Earthlike that the Interview is playing on VOD there.
