Tube Bits for 08/19/2008

  • BuddyTV has a ‘behind the scenes’ video for NBC’s Knight Rider series. You can smell the cheese from here, but can it be cheesy good fun?
  • Do you remember ‘Badger’ from Firefly? How about the lawyer Romo Lampkin on Galactica? Both characters were played by actor Mark Sheppard. Sheppard will be making a 3 episode appearance on Joss Whedon’s new series, Dollhouse. Not a bad list of SF shows.
  • Sci Fi Wire lays the odds for success for the new, Fall SF TV shows. I think Knight Rider is probably getting too favorable odds. Nostalgia won’t save the show if it blows.
  • The WB will cranking up its very own Video On Demand channel August 27th. Among the shows available will be Firefly and Babylon 5. If they have all 5 seasons of B5, that would be awesome. Hulu only has the first two available.
  • Cinema Blend blames the failure of Babylon 5 to continue beyond its five year original run on Star Wars. I’m not sure Star Wars should shoulder all the blame. Certainly a bit, as many SF fans think Star Wars is they way SF should be. Mostly, though, the studios should take the blame for not ‘getting’ Babylon 5.
  • And now for a bit of fun. How long could you survive in a vacuum? Me? Glad you asked:
    How long could you survive in the vacuum of space?

    You know, when I first saw Lampkin, I *thought* that Sheppard looked kind of familiar!  But, then, when I saw Firefly, it was on a static filled TV. A lot of the actors looked like blobs 😉
