Tube Bits for 01/30/2008

  • Sci Fi Wire recently visited the set of the new Knight Rider movie, and came away with some behind the scenes interviews with the cast and crew. The movie will air Feb. 17th at 9pm ET, scant three weeks away.
  • Sam Raimi will be dabbling in television, tentatively scheduled for this fall, with a show called Wizards First Rule, based on the The Sword Of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. It’s a live action version of the story, although there is little detail on how Raimi will structure the series. I’d like to see something, and by ‘like’ I mean I think it would be neat, that is akin to the proposed live action version of Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series, where each book is a season. That could work, I think. Of course, I think that Wizards First Rule is the best of the bunch, so maybe they should just stick with that.
  • The Jim Henson Company and Apple iTunes have reached an agreement to bring Farscape and one of my favorite shows as a kid, Fraggle Rock, to iTunes. The shows went live last Monday (1/28/08) and episodes from the respective series first season are available. Although, I find it odd, reading the press release, that the half-hour Fraggle Rock episodes will cost the same as the hour-long Farscape ones.
  • The long and eagerly awaited season 4 of LOST is almost here. Buddy TV shows us the new faces who will be appearing this season. Of course, if you can’t wait, you can find out what happens next below (created by the Fine Brothers).
  • Did you ever wonder what happened to the crew of Moonbase Alpha after the series ended? TVSeriesFinale has the scoop. Video below:

  1. Heh. Try paying $1.99 for a 11 minute Adult Swim episode. Itune’s pricing scheme for it’s tv shows is out of whack.
