Diana & Chance Are Out, Hal & Arisia Are In

A lot of DC Comics TV/Movie news that deserves a little attention.

First up: The Wonder Woman pilot was not picked up by NBC. After all the hype and the controversy surrounding the costume, NBC passed on the rebooted series by David E. Kelley. No details were released (that I could find) on why NBC passed, but there doesn’t seem to be a future for the series seeing as how all the other networks passed on the script (saying it was terrible) before NBC ordered a pilot.

So, for now at least, Diana will have to stay on Themyscira.

The Premise: Traveling through time, fixing little moments in history.

One of the coolest aspects of the whole digital revolution, is the fact that you can jump on Netflix and for less than $10 a month (I pay $7.99 for unlimited streaming), instantly stream all sorts of new and classic scifi television to your computer or TV.

I check every once in a while to see what new shows might be available and I was pleasantly surprised to see several favorites in the queue for instant streaming.

Jericho was the little show with the big bang! The show centered on the small town of Jericho, Kansas, and the people there trying to pick up the pieces after a series of nuclear detonations take out the American government. The Green family are the central figures in the stories, from Mayor Johnston Green (played by Major Dad himself Gerald McRaney), his wife Gail (played by Pamela Reed) and their two sons Eric (Kenneth Mitchell) and Jake (Skeet Ulrich).

Over the course of two seasons (29 total episodes), the town of Jericho found themselves in all sorts of trouble including being at war with their sister-town New-Bern.

Although Jericho lasted only 2 seasons, it was a great ride.

“…in brightest day, in blackest night…”

…welcome to OA.

Doctor Who Recap: ‘The Impossible Astronaut’

I am so confused. Whenever Steven Moffat gets cute and clever with his writing, I usually end up scratching my head wondering what the hell is going on – not really a good thing.

This post is ripe with spoilers so if you haven’t seen “The Impossible Astronaut”, go watch it, then come back. I’ll wait…
