TVCU Crew Review February 18, 2014

Welcome to the weekly review.  Here are the things the crew have been talking about.

Legitimate crossover this week in The Life of Rock with Brian Pern (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Life_of_Rock_with_Brian_Pern) - not only are Mulligan and O'Hare in it again (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Smell_of_Reeves_and_Mortimer), despite being a very different type of comedy to the rest of the programme and consequently sticking out like sore thumbs, but we also heard the voice of DJ Mike Smash (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smashie_and_Nicey)

A few pop culture references form DCUO 1.In the Cosmic Treadmill: Flashback Duo, enemies drop an item call Gray's Sports Almanac. This is a reference to Back to the Future Part II where a sports almanac under the same name was central to the plan of the movie's primary antagonist. 2.One of the hairstyles consisting of a small afro and sideburns is called "The Hyde", a reference to the character from the TV Show That 70's Show. 3.Another of the hairstyle choices consistingof a mohawk with a full beard is called "Soldier of Fortune", a reference to Mr. T and his role on The A-Team. 4.In the S.T.A.R. Labs Research Facility Alert, when the player is transporting the remainders of the Scion of Fear, a computerized voice says "If you become lightheaded from thirst, feel free to pass out." This is a direct line spoken by the villainess GLaDOS in the video game Portal.

TVCU Trivia of the... last 2 hours: What tv show episode that just aired today name-dropped Hudson University as a real place?

TVCU Trivia of the Day: What fictional character has crossed with both Lucy Ricardo and Lucy Carter?

Final note.  Currently, the TVCU Crew Review consists of the five most recent discussion posts from the TVCU discussion group.  However, I'm open to mixing things up.  If you are interested in contributing an entry for the TVCU Crew Review, please let me know.  Also, if you are interested in writing your own full blog about recent TVCU related news and finds, I'm open to that as well.
