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.
