In addition to Netflix, it's also on the Amazon, the iTunes and on YouTube as well, but not the normal YouTube, the YouTube you have to pay for.
Either way, the DVD will be cheaper.

More recently though, it's not because it's being broadcast. Instead because they are watching it online. Downloading it. Streaming it. Downstreaming it.
I wasn't entirely sure where, so I asked the latest person to mention it where they had seen it. Turns out it's on the Netflix.

The 'Anniversary Edition' features almost all the short stories from the original edition features and now complementing them are twelve fantastic illustrations by Simon A. Brett, Paul Cowan, Carolyn Edwards, Jon Wesley Huff and Michael Leis.
In addition to the illustrations there are a series of interviews with the authors. It was strange to have to consider the story all over again after the fact.
The Time Shadows 'Anniversary Edition' once again benefits Limbforge, a charity that creates and provides prosthetic limbs for some of the world's most vulnerable people.
Time Shadows 'Anniversary Edition' is available here.

It's called When The Walls Fell and its all about Darmok, that episode of The Next Generation in which Picard is stranded on an alien planet by a Tamarian, an alien that speaks entirely in metaphor, and they are forced by adversity to learn to communicate with each other.
The lion share of it is a great point of view piece written by Laura Gillespie, while I contributed the bits written in the Tamarian idiom.

I blogged about it ending with an optimistic 'coming soon'. I was wrong about that.
Alper recently put the whole film online and I finally got a chance to see how my bit fitted into the story as a whole. My wife and I watched it the other day and she didn't manage to spot me, so it'll probably be almost impossible for anyone else.
Anyway, here it is.
