Tube Bits for 09/24/2008

  • NotCot ‘twitterviews‘ S.A.R.A.H. from Eureka. Yes, the house was interviewed using Twitter, which is a rather cool idea, and yes again, S.A.R.A.H. has a twitter account that you can follow.
  • And now for the obligatory Heroes portion of our bits. After the premier, you may not care, but I’m guessing some do…
    • Amazon has a long interview with Zachary Quinto and Tim Kring.
    • It seems the viewing public is catching on that Heroes is not ‘all that’ anymore. The show came in third place for the evening in ratings. I like how they call Heroes a ‘novelty’ series.
  • Sci Fi Wire predicts Fringe will win in a battle between it and Eleventh Hour. Having not seen Eleventh Hour yet (Oct. 9th), but I don’t think the bar is set all that high by Fringe.
  • Sy Fy Portal wonders where the idea for Virtuality came from, then proceeds to drop Old Twentieth by Joe Haldemann as a possible ‘source’. It sounds very close, but who knows what Moore has or hasn’t read?
About JP Frantz (2323 Articles)
Has nothing interesting to say so in the interest of time, will get on with not saying it.

  1. It turns my world upside down that the SciFi Channel has a better genre show than the networks can manage… except maybe FOX. Black is White! Night is Day!

  2. I wasn’t all that impressed with Fringe. I caught the first episode, and couldn’t be bother to catch the second (both on Hulu.com, which I *was* impressed with). It alternated between a “we are on Fox we are so slick and adult” feeling and a “we are so not the X-Files omg u guyz” feeling. Mostly, it felt like a show that needs honest-to-god writers. The X-Files had the occasional guest, and the fact that it could really did help.

     

    I dunno. Most pilots are crummy. Maybe it’ll turn into something brilliant later. But the first episode left me with a resounding “meh.” I spent the whole time watching it, waiting for Mulder and Scully to step out of a car… 🙂
