I'm not sure why but today Nick showed the movie E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (the 20th Anniversary version) for the very first time in it's history. This came as a complete surprise to me since Nickelodeon seems like the least likely place for such a groundbreaking film, though it's somewhat ironic since Nickelodeon Studios used to be at Universal Studios where E.T. Adventure is. If you didn't see it today it'll probably be on tomorrow.

    I saw the commercial of it today. I was suprised, although I watched it on TV Land last week. It's a good movie.

      OMG LOL. I just made a thread about this! I didn't even realize that somebody already made a thread about it, sorry :( I was really excited about it.

      and yes it will be on again at noon tomorrow.

          I knew it was going to be on Nick at Nite for weeks though, I just didn't remember that it was TODAY, so we missed the first half hour :( it was still great though.

                Wow, that's fricking bizarre. Nickelodeon is the last place I'd expect to see that.

                  I thought it was odd too. I skim past nick 9 times out of 10, but I saw that E.T. was on and had to stop to watch it.

                        Nicktoons Network is but Nickelodeon had always been a channel with both animated and live action programming (when they're not having any Spongebob marathons :roll:).

                        Before they started showing E.T. they had that awful live action Scooby-Doo movie from 2002. At least now they showed a movie that's actually good.

                            What about shows like Drake & Josh, Zoey 101 and iCarly? They have always been and always will be live-action.

                              Here's a comparison of the original E.T. and the 20th Anniversary Edition.



                              Oh, and I saw it this afternoon.

                                Oh come on! How stupid! I hate how they always have to tweak classics! I read that you cant even buy the original E.T anywhere on DVD, you'd have to buy this special "gift set" with like a script and a bunch of other little things nobody wants and it costs A LOT. I need to find my old E.T VHS, and then buy a VHS player lol. I hated CGI E.T!

                                    Ignoring the tweaks, it's still a very good movie.

                                      I bought the 2-Disc set the first time it came out on DVD and it had both the new and original versions of the movie, but there's never a director's commentary (kind of a thing Spielberg always lacks with his movies).
