  • The BBC series Life on Mars has had an interesting road to American television. First adapted by David Kelley, he has since moved on and much about the show has changed.

  • The TV adaptation of Terry Goodkind’s Wizard’s First Rule is set to air in November. I’m curious to see how they develop this show. Will it be one book a season or just ‘based’ on the series? One way is much preferable to the other.

  • Will Heroes season 3 blow? Decide for yourself:

  1. Not to be picky, but it’s Terry Goodkind not Terry Brooks that wrote Wizard’s First Rule. 🙂

  2. I hate it when I do that. Fixed!

    But you never see them together, do you? Hmmm.
