So for TG owners, what are your thoughts on video stabilization? Pro's and con's of having it on or off?

Movie mode stabilization is electronic only and it slightly crops the video. It's not particularly effective, but it will help smooth out slow and subtle camera movements.

What about image stabilization? Are the any times where it helps to leave it off?

For still images, it uses 2-axis sensor shift. It's rated at a meager 2.5 stops. If the camera is tripod mounted and you're doing longer exposures or a timelapse sequence, disable IS. Otherwise, just leave it on.
