TV Round-Up

Dang. What am I going to watch over the summer, now?

USA Network has decided not to renew either The 4400 or The Dead Zone. You don’t suppose they’d be willing to do a movie to, oh, wrap up the cliffhangers, do you? ::sigh::

Oddly enough for a show that seems to be universally criticized, Bionic Woman is still alive and kicking. (For now.)

Those awaiting the return of Lost (which is so going to benefit from the lack of new programming) can catch a bit of spoilery video from E!’s Watch with Kristin.

Genre TV Bits and Bobs

This is shaping up to be an odd TV season. Things are good. (Many new attempts at genre shows.) Things are bad. (Writers’ strike.)

- After a strong start Bionic Woman is on life support.

- However, Chuck (okay…not technically sci-fi, but still geeky) is picking up steam; even while Heroes struggles.

- And why is Heroes struggling? Well, producer Tim Kring is admitting to making some mistakes with how this season’s story is unfolding. (I’m still enjoying it, but there are some valid points.)

- Lost fans have some happy and not-so-happy news as the season will start, but the writers’ strike will mean that it will abruptly stop.

TV News? A Jedi craves not these things

‘Tis the season for fun TV announcements. Is it the fall season yet?

- Ripper has supposedly passed one more small hurdle towards becoming reality
- Kevin Smith attempts to cover all branches of geekdom by directing an episode of Battlestar Galactica, an episode of Heroes: Origins, and the pilot for Reaper. Does the man ever sleep?
- David Tennant is staying with Dr. Who
- Genre actors get some props as scene-stealers
- And “Watch With Kristin” gets a sneak peek at some of the folks passing through the island on Lost

TV Goodness

A few, small TV tidbits to share:

- SciFi has finally announced what everyone else seems to have known for a while now: Paul McGillion is back on Stargate Atlantis.

- Kristen Bell is rumored to be heading on over to Lost

- Can Heroes live up to expectations in Season 2?

- Ron Moore decides to stay on with NBC Universal a little longer, but not so much with the sci-fi.

- Flash Gordon not only shows promise, but already gets a DVD. We’ll have to see. I’m kinda fond of that 80′s cheesy version.

Video Monday

Calls for Cthulhu! This is the best video ever. At least for today. (via SF Signal, which links to more!)

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End clips. I love his pies. (Thanks, Yav!)

Your Lightsaber and You has been around a while – there’s even a sequel – but I hadn’t run across it until recently.

We can have a good time, can’t we?

TV Survival for Lost and BSG

Some good news for all the fans wanting more of Lost and Battlestar Galactica.

ABC has given an early renewal to Lost for next season, in spite of its sagging ratings. Maybe this will force the producers to answer some questions in the storyline?

Battlestar Galactica has had its episode order upped to 22, from the original 13 episodes ordered. This could be seen as either good or bad. The good? It means that SciFi believes the show is going strong and needs a full season. The bad? SciFi believes that the show is tanking and is kindly giving the producers a chance to finish telling the story. It’ll be interesting to see what happens.

In the meantime, head into the eternal wasteland between seasons with some hope that there is more to be had of your favorites.

Video Monday

Me or Jack? Lost: The Final Episode from the Consumer Electronics Show. You’ll LOL. Promise. Also: Lost Rhapsody 2: Electric Boogaloo.

The Supernatural Menace. The kids (or is it the slashers?) love Supernatural. So naturally there’s a crossover. Amusing, even to someone who still thinks of the one-who-is-not-Dean as Dean.

Sneak peek at the Ryan vs. Dorkman sequel, complete with talking heads. Oh, fanboys!

I may have blogged a few of Evan Mather’s Kenner vids before, but here’s few more – Quentin Tarantino’s Star Wars, Godzilla Versus Disco Lando, Kung Fu Kenobi’s Big Adventure, Les Pantless Menace.

IT CAME FROM JAPAN!


TV News Roundup

Battlestar Galactica is hemorrhaging viewers, thanks to the use of DVR’s. Can the Sunday night move save it? Apparently, a decision will be made mid-February when the actors’ contracts are up.

HBO will be developing George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire into a television series.

And the producers of Lost insist they have an endpoint in mind. You apparently have two more seasons to enjoy, as they’d like to end it at 100 episodes. And here you thought they were making this up as they went along….
