I've had to go through a lot of drek trying to find interesting fan films for your viewing pleasure.  My favorite kind are the well-done comic parodies.  This one sorta fell into my lap.  It's based on the principal of "what do you get when you cross Pokemon with Jurassic Park...?"

FAN FILM FRIDAY: "The Prisoner" by Jessica Erskine (2009)

The definition of "Fan Film" is pretty broad. Generally it refers to people making their own episodes of TV shows they like, or tying things in to movies, but it can also refer to parody, to homage, Mashups, and so on. So does creating your own parody titles to the greatest SF series of all time count as fan film stuff? Well, maybe it doesn't and maybe it does, but who really cares? This one is done by Jessica Erskine, and she's freakin' adorable.

SONG OF THE WEEK: "Battlestar Rhapsody" by The Great Luke Ski (2009)

The Great Luke Ski is kind of a third-generation Filker and a musical parodist, not unlike Weird Al, but without as good a voice. Seriously, I know Al sounds a bit like Big Bird on occasion, but at least he can hit those notes, you know? And his production is top notch. This one is certainly *not,* and in fact it's a little painful to listen to some of the more operatic stretchy parts, but this really is funny as hell. Check it out below the jump.

In the world of SCTV, there was this independent cable network located somewhere in the midwest. The show generally followed the day-to-day operations of the little station that couldn't, intersperced with sketch comedy in the form of fake commercials, shows, and movie-parodies.
