Let's Watch: Select Episodes of Cinematech (The Original Series)
IntroductionAchievement Unlocked: Read the Introduction – 5G
Hello and welcome to my second liveblog. This time, it's for the original series of Cinematech
(2002, G4), not the sister series, Cinematech: Nocturnal Emissions
Why didn't I do the original series first? It's somewhat complicated. The main reason is, I believe that CT
is ultimately superior to C: NE
, although C: NE
may have been more entertaining initially, in the end, it wasn't able to maintain that level of amusement. So I think that doing the CT
liveblog afterward will make for a happier ending to the Cinematech
This liveblog will feature descriptions and reviews of select (i.e., the best) episodes of CT
. Unfortunately, I didn't see the entire series, so this liveblog will always technically be incomplete, unless I decide to watch the eps I didn't see online. Just like my C: NE
liveblog, these eps come from my personal collection of CT
eps that I recorded off of TV. Because several eps feature clever edits that showcase games back-to-back, this liveblog signals return of the timecode – yes, the actual Code of Time!
Since the topic of this liveblog is a show about Video Games
, it has been categorized in the VG portion of TV Tropes
I plan to do more interesting things in this liveblog than in the first, so I'm excited to write it!
If I made a factual error or a mistake in the liveblog, or if a link is dead/broken, please let me know in the comments so I can try to fix it. :)
Complete list of '''Cinematech''' episodes
Hwody! Just found your liveblogs, this is amazing. I was a producer on Cinematech and C:NE back in the day, I have to ask, do you have all the episodes backed up somewhere? Please, feel free to DM on twitter.... @otherwhitetofu

Thank you! I only have the episodes that I recorded from tape onto DVD, does that count?
