This week’s episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee stars Jerry Seinfeld and Barry Marder (AKA Ted L. Nancy) comedian and author of the prank letters book series “Letters from a Nut”.
Forty-six years ago this week the science fiction program Star Trek warped onto our television screens and today Google celebrated the iconic series’ birthday with an interactive doodle tribute.
The doodle transforms the crew of the Enterprise into the Google logo (Captain James T. Kirk is an ‘O’, Spock’s the big ‘G’) and honors some of the TV show’s most popular episodes.
You can beam Kirk ‘O’ and a hapless redshirt down to a dangerous planet, fight a Gorn alien and even jump into your trouble with Tribbles … but only if you know where to click.

Last week, fans received notices of a potential delay regarding preorders of the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase One Box Set (first revealed during Comic-Con).
Planned for release on September 25th (the same day Marvel’s The Avengers hits DVD and Blu-ray), the set was to include Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray presentations of The Avengers, Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor, as well as Blu-ray versions of Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk and the discs were to be housed in a replica of Nick Fury’s briefcase alongside a light-up model Tesseract and many other prop replicas straight from the films.
Speculation suggested that the delay was due to a pending lawsuit on the part of the company that manufactured the case for the film and some fans feared that the set may be cancelled altogether.
There’s some positive news today, however, as the Phase One set will indeed see a release next spring instead of later this month. The case design will change, although we’re not sure how significantly. Check back for details as they become available.
