As inconceivable as it may seem, there are some people who have not experienced the awesome wonderment that is FCTV. How can this be, do you ask? We don't know. Maybe they're new.

Well, with this in mind, what FCTV's does a newbie REALLY need to see? Yes, yes, yes, we know. They're ALL really good. But even we will admit that life can exist without seeing every one.

So what say you? What should be included in the FCTV primer?

Discuss!

The absolute imperative is to check out this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nzKnPzzbxE) FCTV.

If that doesn't whet your appetite, nothing will.

I listened to the Force-Cast for at least a few episodes before tuning in to FCTV. When I did tune in, I caught up to many of the inside jokes like lightspeed. Everything made more sense, and putting Jason's and Pete's faces to their voices was cool, too.

FCTV is like a "Cliffs Notes" version of the Force-Cast: You get all the highlights, but in a somewhat convoluted order.

My advice is...
watch an FCTV, then go back to the archives and listen to the actual Force-Cast for that week.
It's a totally different experience.

Excellent.

Thanks Shaz! We knew (hoped) we could count on you.

In case anyone missed it, a very helpful place to look is just off of the main YouTube.com/TheForceNet page. (http://www.youtube.com/user/TheForcenet) If you click on THE WORDS "Video Force-Cast" (NOT the picture!) on the top of the page, it will take you to the FCTV playlist (http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=477899142E072F09). We think this is the easiest list to look at. It has the name, date, description, and thumbnail all in one place. (Keep in mind there is more than one page.)

Also, many of the vids are available in high-res, if you click the "HQ" button after the vid starts. It doesn't make the vid any larger but it does make it more clear, better for seeing the small details like some text.

Billy Dee Quotes

What would FCTV be without a little bit of Billy Dee?
Here are some classic Billy Dee quotes:

Oh, Billy Dee... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPLN349-dJQ) ... you'd better watch out for gremlins.

Oh, Billy Dee, oh Billy Dee, you might influence someone's nephew. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXnmuCK4Pxo) (There are two Billy Dee quotes in this one, though one is recited by a youngster.)

Billy Dee asks an insightful relationship question. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NApknBaS8Dk) (Bonus: Jorbex)

It's what Billy Dee really loves. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1k_yPOYqcJg) He's very reassuring and Jason faces some harsh realities.

Oh there are more, I'm sure.
But I'm trying to keep the list somewhat limited.

(more to come later)

Call-in Guests

Can you believe there was a time when the Force-Cast didn't take calls?

Well, other than from Pete's Parents and Dustin Roberts. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UNdIdHa8TY)

Or girls trying to pick up the President. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T31dsJeEqmA) Better watch this one soon, Big Brother is coming down hard on us... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

Gremlins...

A perfect Force-Cast just wouldn't be perfect without some glitches and gremlins gumming up the works.

Sometimes they shorten a podcast, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LczDmTsA_o) wearing on the nerves of the hosts...
...other times, Jason insists on continuing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPLN349-dJQ) while Pete entertains the people.

We like what Shaz is doing with "themes" to the lists. We were going to post about the genesis of running jokes like
Where's My Nickel? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAg3bL30PSY&feature=PlayList&p=477899142E072F09&index=65)
Who's more Grizzled? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQFCvAyD3z8&feature=PlayList&p=477899142E072F09&index=67)
but after looking at just the first page, we decided that this theme would be too long. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

BTW, don't forget one of the few FCTVs that cannot be seen on YouTube:
GL Hip-Hop Awards (http://www.atom.com/funny_videos/sw_gl_hip_hop_awards/)
that one won some awards. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Since we're talking about really, really good and cool FCTV's, I thought I'd better bring this one up.

This one is more about an unexpected event than Palp's Pects, but he's here nonetheless.
