Tube Bits For 09/07/07

  • Apparently, the DVD sales for Jericho are low. Maybe everyone is at home, trying to watch it when its broadcast, just like the network asked them to? I think CBS made the right decision in canceling the show to begin with, but a bunch of crazy fans convinced them there was a larger audience out there than there actually is. I don’t see this making it past its 7 episode trial. If you’re interested, there will be a live chat with executive producer Dan Shotz tonight 8pm EST on the show’s home page.
  • Buddy TV speculates on how LOST will end. I’m sure the series will wrap everything up, but how nicely?
  • In keeping with the Dr. Who theme around here, the Dr.’s assistant, Sarah Jane Smith, will get her own TV show, The Sarah Jane Adventures, Elisabeth Sladen will reprise her role as Sarah Jane in this series aimed at the younger set.
  • Kevin Falls and Kevin McKidd, creator and star of Journeyman, held a press conference to discuss the show. We learn that the romantic dimensions of the show are the core of the story, and that any SF elements will be downplayed. Yeah, I’m out.
  • NEXT.TV announced an agreement with HP for a ‘revolutionary new Internet television service’ that enables users to ‘enjoy hit TV shows, movies, music videos, shorts, documentaries and much more’. Initially, only HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario PCs and notebooks running Vista will be able to access this ‘revolutionary’ IPTV service. But you can sign up for the beta if you wish. I don’t know how revolutionary this really is, as services like Joost and Babelgum are already doing this, and not tied to any one brand of computer.

  1. The pilot for Sarah Jane already aired. It was good, with a spunky kid sidekick, an attic full of neat gadgets, and a soda-based villain bent on world domination.

    That makes at least four current present-day Who-verse villains with long-term domination plans that spanned the last few years if not longer. You’d think they would use their technology to detect one another. Maybe they have a support group.

  2. The ending of LOST is so easy to predict I’m surprised you didn’t mention it. I suppose I should put the obligatory spoiler warning in – I’m about to reveal the ending so browse away now if you want to wait it out.

    Jack Shephard (played by Mathew Fox) will wake up in bed with Suzanne Pleshette, state that he ate too much Japanese food before going to bed, and ask about her wearing more sweaters.

  3. I really liked Jericho, and hope that it will have many more episodes and will wrap up things nicely. It just speaks to me. Anybody with me here?
