Revival House

Although media companies often express anxieties about film and television shows being posted on YouTube, more media conglomerates are actually sanctioning the free bandwidth that YouTube offers for older entertainment properties that could have new licensing lives with renewed interest from younger audiences. For example, one of the blogs for the Los Angeles Times has highlighted how YouTube is showing Ghostbusters for the film's 25th anniversary. Of course, the Abba channel may be my favorite site for hawking retro sentiment in the digital age.

Update: And, of course, as a convention attendee back in the pre-cool days of junior high, who can forget the original Star Trek series on YouTube. Luckily only family members remember when I had a pattern book for Enterprise uniforms and a communicator replica that I had airplane glued myself.
