      Damian Edwards and Scott Hanselman are brilliant together.  Even though I've already pretty much figured out the framework, I still find myself watching these videos again.  The world could not have enough of this "series".  Also kudos to the talent behind the scenes.  You guys are all making .Net cool once again.
