Tube Bits For 11/26/2007

  • Wizard Universe has a short interview with David X. Cohen on the pending release (Nov. 27th, tomorrow!) of Bender’s Big Score. The movie will involve time travel, and if it’s anything like ‘Roswell That End’s Well’, it should rock. Although making a feature length film that will later be split into four separate episodes is a bit weird.
  • The Denver Post reviews the Star Trek The Original Series — The Complete First Season DVD set, just recently released. As you would expect, the real draw are the episodes themselves, while the extras are hit and miss. Is it worth $140 to buy these episodes? Again?
  • AOL News says Battlestar Galactica is the best political show on TV. He praises it for its “unblinking examinations of such hot-button issues as genocide, torture, suicide bombers, villainous occupiers and heroic insurgents.” He then says that SF TV has a history, when being politcal, of being “long on preachy, short on entertainment.” Which is ironic considering the third season of BG was exactly that. When they went for entertainment it worked, otherwise the politics became boring. There is also a short list of additional ‘good political SF’.
  • Associated Content interviews Stephanie Jacobson about her role as Major Kendra Shaw on Razor. I see, according to IMDB, that Jacobson is in line to play Maya for David Kelley’s American adaptation of Life On Mars.
  • And finally, for Pete and others like him, HavadisNet has the goods on Hayden Panettiere’s GQ photo shoot. Once you hit 18, apparently the high style men’s magazines come calling.

Has nothing interesting to say so in the interest of time, will get on with not saying it.

  1. “villainous occupiers and heroic insurgents”

    Yeah, that’s ripped right from the headlines. But, as they tell us constantly, they all support the troops.

  2. Bender’s Big Score is easily as good as most Futurama episodes, but it does take a little while to get back into a groove. I fully expect the subsequent movies to be even better, and I can’t wait for them to arrive.

  3. The best political show on TV is 30 Rock.
