  • Here’s an unexpected media tie-in for you, a series of books about USA Network’s TV series, Monk. The third book is titled Mr. Monk in Outer Space, where Monk must track down the killer of a cult SF TV show. Random Ramblings has a quick review. As much as I like the series and Tony Shaloub, I haven’t watched it in a couple years and I don’t see myself reading the books. Maybe Tim will…
  • Is British pop star Lily Allen joining Dr. Who for next season? Sci Fi Scanner has heard rumors and isn’t keen on the prospect. I’ve only ever seen the one video of Allen’s song, Everything’s Just Wonderful and, while I like the song, I can’t comment on her ‘rightness’ for Who.
  • If you think Heroes has been on the rebound lately, you’re not alone. Even though it’s still finishing third in it’s time slot, it’s ratings have stabilized and even risen from earlier this season. Bionic Woman though is not so lucky. The strike may kill that show off soon.
  • The Daily Galaxy looks at the theology of Battlestar Galactica, covering both the human and Cylon side of things. They then wonder why we should expect any species to be rational and scientific, even one that may be created by us. That’s an interesting question, but I think the answer is “We can’t”, if for no other reason than good old Murphy.
  • Slashdot is running another in their long line of interviews, this time with MST3K creator, Joel Hodgson. If you’ve ever wanted to ask Joel a question, here’s your chance. The top 10 questions will be posed to Joel and the answers posted at a later date.

  1. About the Monk books. I recently got VERY into the TV series and then found out about the books. I couldn’t get through 2 chapters of the first one. Neither could a co-worker of mine. Terrible, terrible writing.
