Tube Bits for 01/24/2008

  • Carol Barbee, executive producer of Jericho, speculates that the ultimate fate of the series to live beyond seven episodes will be known around episode three. Remember, if you want to see a season three, CBS will looking at airtime ratings so tune in when it’s broadcast. None of that nasty time shifting.
  • But if Jericho is canned, you’ll be glad to know that the Sci Fi Channel has acquired the rights to air the re-runs starting in February. And as an aside, I’ve often wondered why Sci Fi wasn’t in HD. Turns out there is a Sci Fi HD channel. So much for getting that news out to people.
  • Mostlikely2 has posted an interesting look at Bionic Woman, Galactica and The Sarah Connor Chronicles. He wonders why one show should succeed over the others and gives some thoughts.
  • Chuch of the Masses wonders if Galactica is a good show? Good in this case being of the ‘morally good’ sense, not of the ‘good TV’ sense. There are some interestings observations/guesses on the Cylons.
  • Who says media tie-ins should just be books? Videogamer.com has a preview of the upcoming LOST: Via Domus video game for the 360, PS3 and PC. I don’t know about you, but I have yet to see a really good game based on any kind of TV show or movie.

  1. I take issue! Goldeneye for N64 was an excellent video game based on a movie. It may be the exception that proves the rule, though.

  2. I had been so looking forward to Bionic Woman, but I only watched two episodes and then didn’t even bother getting my DVR repaired so I could watch more. So sad… a bunch of interesting actors and a fabulous premise, marred by horrid dialogue, flat direction, and a total inability, apparently, to take advantage of the wonderful potential within the show.

  3. I am thinking about picking up the 1st season on DVD. The show always looked interesting, but I only caught the pilot episode.
