      This episode was awesome! Thanks guys, I look forward to more about the WebAPI, I am currently trying to get my team to look at it more in depth :)

      Love this stuff guys. I've been waiting for this capability to be available for quite some time. I've already put it in place, but I can't seem to get "$select" to work.  It appears this will be supported based on the Samples (I'm running the ODataServiceServiceSample) and I've set the "AllowedQueryOperations = All".   I do not get an Error, but all Properties are returned in my JSON.  Projection is a MUST for me.  Hopefully I'm just missing something.


      Thanks again. Keep up the great work.

      Here's a hint for all you folks scouring the Windows Azure site for the "interesting nuance" that was mentioned in this show:

      I would recommend that the Tag "OData" be added to this Web Camps TV episode. You cannot find it by searching for OData in the Bing search box up above. Not good because the title is all about OData ("ASP.NET Web API Queryable with OData").

      When you didn't show us how to query movies from 2011 staring Scarlet Johanson I died a little inside.  I can't find documentation on this anywhere.

      I also cannot get $select to work proper, as Devaron (above).

      Returns all rows. Must be a bug. Any ideas???
