Tube Bits For 08/17/07

  • On December 4th, Universal Studios will release Battlestar on HD-DVD. You’ll get the usual extras, including a picture-in-picture behind the scenes look, perfect for those who want a more in-depth look at Grace Park’s scenes.
  • CHUD has a short article discussing the weakness of Peter and Hiro from Heroes.
  • The Gemini Division is a new Internet based SF series that will star Rosario Dawson. There will be 100 three-minute episodes produced, with a potential for a TV series later. No link to a site yet, but it sounds interesting.
  • Star Trek alumnus, Colm Meaney, is in final talks to star in David E. Kelley’s Americanized version of the BBC’s Life On Mars. I really liked the original British version, so I’ll definitely tune in to see how this show turns out.
  • And finally, NBC has posted their fall preview online, for all to see. Check it out for sneaks of Heroes, Journeyman, Chuck and Bionic Woman.

  1. Ya’ know, I’m really tired of all the hype, or even just plain talk, about “The Bionic Woman.” At best this show is faux sci-fi. I guess I’m just tired of the dearth of true sci-fi on TV today. We got “Battlestar Galactica” and “Doctor Who”–that’s it. I need spaceships and laser beams and action and the future (or another world at any point in time) in my sci-fi. A half-robot woman with some spring in her step just doesn’t cut it for me. Sorry. Call me traditional, but there is no sci-fi or fantasy on TV today that can hold a candle to BG and DW. (Yes, including “Lost.” Whatever, Mary.)

  2. Oh. And I almost forgot. The new “Flash Gordon”? Gag me with a spoon. Sorry to be so negative today. The nadir of TV that will be “The Bionic Woman” just has me bumming. So. How long is it until the live-action “Star Wars” TV series debuts? Save me, George Lucas, save me!

  3. I thought the SW show was going to be CGI. As for George Lucas saving us…only if he gestures in a mysterious way and utters something like “Those aren’t the prequels you remember.”
