Tube Bits For 10/19/2007

  • We know that George Lucas has been working on a TV series set in the Star Wars universe. Know we know a bit more about what the show will look like: no major characters and a story that is ‘taking chances’. Hopefully that doesn’t mean Jar Jar is the focus.
  • Richard and Pluperfection discusses the character of Sylar on Heroes. I agree if they ‘recycle’ his character into what it was last season, it will be a huge letdown. I have an idea on what I’d like to see from him, but little to back it up.
  • SciFi Chick brings us the premier date for The Sarah Conner Chronicles: January 14th at 8PM ET. And in case you missed it, Angela visited the set of TSCC, which included meeting Summer Glau.
  • I bet you didn’t know that IGN just started a new site dedicated to anime. To celebrate, IGN is offering up the first episode of Pumpkin Scissors for your enjoyment.
  • How do you know when your TV show is ‘bad’? When it’s canceled before it evens airs an episode! Fox has canned New Amsterdam before its revised premier date in January. Since this is Fox, I’m assuming Amsterdam has the potential to be the best show ever if it gets canceled without ever being seen on the air.
  • For your viewing pleasure: EW brings us the 24 Butt-Kicking Babes from TV and Film. Several TV babes make the cut, including Kate from LOST and Sarah from Chuck. But it’s hard to argue with their number 1.

  1. I am so upset Fox cancled New Amsterdamn. I was really looking forward to seeing that one. You’re right, too, about Fox’s track record. ~Sigh~ Since they said it was only being put on hiatus, I can only hope that one of Fox’s other shows royally sucks and they decide to replace it with New Amsterdamn. Hey, it could happen, right?

  2. Since they already filmed several of the episodes, I really hope they decide to pick it up again. I had high hopes for New Amsterdam. And the inside track.

  3. I think EW forgot about Zena the Warrior Princess 🙁

  4. “///Filmmaker George Lucas said Tuesday that he has ‘just begun work’ on a live-action television series rooted in the ‘Star Wars’ universe…”

    Just **begun** work? How long have they been talking about this TV show now? Since the third prequel movie or thereabouts? Vaporware, anybody?
