Tube Bits For 08/13/2007

  • Continuing the it’s homage to Star Trek fans, Nichelle Nichols will be joining the cast of Heroes for five or six episodes. At this rate, it looks like Heroes will resurrect Kirk before the franchise does. And in related news, James Kyson Lee (Ando) is actively campaigning to for the role of Sulu in the upcoming Trek movie. This relationship is becoming incestuous. [via Trek Today].
  • Charlesblog, after a savage review of Flash Gordon, calls for a holy war against the SciFi Channel before other SF propertied undergo the ‘re-imagining’ process which will turn them into crap. I’d just like to see more good SF on Sci Fi.
  • Here’s a dissenting opinion of Flash Gordon. Makes me wonder if we saw the same program. Potentially as good as Galactica? Only if they completely re-vamp the entire show and get some new producers…
  • You knew it would happen. After the success of the Transformers movie, Hollywood is looking for the next franchise. Sci Fi Wire is reporting that Voltron: Defender of the Universe is in the sights of New Regency, and Mark Gordon and Justin Marks are adapting it as a ‘post-apocalyptic tale of survival in New York City and Mexico’. Yeesh, make it stop!
  • The latest TV Ate My Dinner podcast is out and it covers all things Star Trek, including can the new film save the franchise? My guess: No.
  • Imagi-nation points us to YouTube videos of the Canadian TV show Prisoners Of Gravity, which has a lot of author interviews. You can find more videos on YouTube. It’s kinda campy, but fun. Unlike Flash Gordon.

    personally i think this is a live action movie of Evangelian:

  3. Prisoners of Gravity was a goldmine for author comments. A lot of them are still worth watching. Commander Rick’s deliberate corniness was the icing on the cake. Great to see someone out there managed to save a few episodes and upload them to Youtube.
