Tube Bits for 02/11/2008

  • Check out this really cool mighty-morphin Mach 5, based on the car from the upcoming Speed Racer movie. Yes, it says ‘6’ on the car. Apparently, the car has ‘6’ on it at some point in the film. This model comes complete with jump jacks and saw blades. Sadly, all the pre-orders are sold out. We’ll just have to wait until April for the release batch.
  • With the writer’s strike apparently over, you may be wondering the fate of your favorite shows. TV Guide [via Buddy TV] has a report on what you can expect. Short answer: LOST is on track for 14 episodes this ‘season’ (instead of 16), while fans of Chuck and Pushing Daisies will have to wait until the Fall for production to start again.
  • The new Trek movie opens this December, and some people aren’t happy. Apparently, they are tired of the current state of America’s space program, so they decided to whine to Paramount, via an online petition, to force Paramount to donate a portion of the new film’s earnings to various non-profit space exploration organizations. Their threat? We won’t see Trek XI on opening week! Take that, Paramount!
  • The latest Development Journal for the MMO Stargate Worlds pinpoints the time the game will take place in: Between seasons 8 and 9 of Stargate: SG-1. I’m more and more intrigued with this game, and I hope it brings something good to the MMO scene.
  • More casting news for J.J. Abrams’ new show, Fringe. Joshua Jackson, of Dawson’s Creek ‘fame’, has been tapped to play the male lead, genius high-school drop-out Peter Bishop, alongside female lead Anna Torv.
