I've been thinking of changing the format of the Friday Morning Pick Me Up - Yes, there will probably be music videos some weeks, but honestly, I'm running out of decent stuff to share. I don't want to copy Steve in a Speedo, and go with just funny stuff on Fridays (though I think I was doing FMPMU before Steve started his "Friday Funny" feature), so instead this will hopefully be just cool stuff that brightens your Friday mornings (or whenever you happen to check my blog).
So, first up in the new format... One of the L&T (who has her own Friday regular feature that's worth checking out) and my favorite shows is "Castle" and on a recent episode the referenced a Sci-Fi classic; the 1956 masterpiece (and I do not use that term loosely) "Forbidden Planet". Many have said that it's based on Shakespeare's "The Tempest", which I'm not as sure about, but I can tell you that without "Forbidden Planet" there probably wouldn't have been a "Star Trek". So without further ado, staring a young Leslie Nielson as Cmdr. John J. Adams, here is the trailer for "Forbidden Planet";
