Cable Ready #4: Crash, Head Case and Party Down

Starz has a neat orderly system for each of their shows. Sections on the cast, videos and a predictable bookend "special" section.

For the show Crash, the special section is a photo-hunt game.

For the show Head Case, the section is an interactive video couch session with what I assume is one of the characters:

And for Party Down, a time-management game:

I haven't seen Crash or Head Case, but Party Down is a great show. And this interactive piece does it no justice whatsover. It's flat and phoned in. This is what happens when you get too formulaic with your sections. When putting together the content for your site, the thought is "Ok, now we need to put something in the special section" instead of "how can we extend the entertainment and soul of the show interactively?".

that sounds awfully idealistic i know. but a photo-hunt game?

Grey Matters

I'm a Digital ACD in Advertising land. I have been in love with the internet for over 10 years now. And I have a Red Bull problem. There I said it.

I travel around different industries every week or so and look for interesting and tasty interactive bits. I hope to make this a place for ad folk to keep up to date. And I just enjoy the spelunk.
