The Streamy Awards, honoring excellence in Web TV programming, have officially come of age with the announcement that they are not just a one-time thing. In fact, the 2nd Annual Streamy Awards will be taking place in just a few weeks on Sunday, April 11, 2010, LIVE on the Internet.
If you missed out on watching "Harper's Island" (review here) during its television run, shame on you. Now that the show is available on DVD, you have no more excuses. Recently we sat down with one of the series' stars, Matt Barr, who played "Sully", to talk about what it was like living and dying on the now infamous slasher vacation spot.
Aside from the better than it should have been "Harper's Island" (review), the pick of this week's DVD crop seems to be a couple of Blu-ray re-releases: Creepshow and Freddy vs. Jason.

Are you one of the many who missed out on "Harper's Island" during its television run? If so you NEED to check it out when it drops on DVD on September 8th. To make sure that you do, we're even giving away copies! See? Now you have no excuse!
It's a shame "Harper's Island" did so poorly on TV. Truth is it's a solid little show filled with about as much violence as some R-rated films. Pretty shocking. Word of mouth just spread a little too late, and as a result the show's fanbase got to the party too late to save it from the sentenced to Saturday night Death Curse.
It may not have won over a lot of Dread Central readers' hearts, but "Harper's Island" isn't doing so poorly that it's being canceled. However, CBS is moving the show to Saturday night ... not exactly a ringing endorsement.
The first interactive video from the "Harper's Island" social experiment called HarpersGlobe.com just went live, and it's pretty creepy!
It's been a few weeks, but yet another postcard from "Harper's Island" has mysteriously shown up in our e-mail. This time it appears they have a bit of a maintenance issue because someone made a hell of a mess on the stairs. Dig it!
I will admit, CBS's new show "Harper's Island" has my interest as I'm a sucker for a good murder mystery. To make things a bit more interactive, the network has just put HarpersGlobe.com live so that you can get a little more involved with the mayhem.
As April approaches we find ourselves getting closer and closer to the impending debut of CBS television's latest slasher series "Harper's Island". Up until now all we've seen about the show in terms of promotion have been a few ominous promo-postcards, but now apparently it's time for a bit more of the proverbial cat to creep out of the bag.
We just got another postcard from the makers of the upcoming serial killer show “Harper’s Island”. It’s a little bit darker (tonally, that is) than the last, indicating that maybe things on this quiet little island aren’t as nice as the tourism board wants you to believe.
Here at Dread Central we get hundreds of e-mails a day. We do our best to sift through solicitations from foreign princes and penile enlargement creme ads to make sure we don't miss anything juicy. Today we got a not so ominous looking digital postcard from what's likely to be a very ominous place -- "Harper's Island".
There's something about combining "CBS" with "slasher" that doesn't seem quite right, but hell, they're also the network that had a show about swingers, so maybe they have finally shed their image as our grandparents' channel.
I wonder just what it means to “retool” a TV show. Do you tear it down to its barest essentials and build it back up again with new talent? Maybe you just keep the title and premise and throw out anything else that made the show unique? Seems a bit cannibalistic to me.
