Tube Bits for 01/14/08

  • The final, final season of Battlestar Galactica starts this Friday. Crave Online has an interview with producer David Eick about Galactica‘s journey to this point. He does have some interesting things to say about what they were trying to do with the show and how it ended up where it is.
  • Kevin Reilly, president of entertainment at FOX, updated the Television Critics Association press tour about the status of The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Dollhouse, Fringe, Virtuality, and the Friday night slot of death. He wants the viewers to judge Dollhouse and Virtuality will need to be retooled for a series commitment.
  • If you just can’t wait for LOSTmas (Jan. 21st), we’ve got you covered. Spoilers and hints for season 5, and beyond, abound. Proceed with caution!
    • TV Guide has a doosie of an issue coming out about LOST. It is filled with spoilers and hints about season 5 so follow the link only if you just can’t wait anymore. I’m very tempted, but so far have resisted the urge to read. I want to go in cold.
    • Details Magazine has an interview with Matthew Fox about his character, Jack, and the end of LOST in 2010. Minor spoilers. I will say I find his attitude towards ‘celebrity activism’ to be refreshing.
    • Doc Jensen of EW.com has a detailed guide covering previous episodes you need to re-familiarize yourself with for Season 5. Just, go read if you like LOST.
  • The new Number Six in AMC’s upcoming remake of The Prisoner talks about his role, his costar, and the series itself. Anyone excited about this one? I need to go watch them over at AMC as I’ve never seen the series, just the odd clip or too featuring giant balls.
  • Eliza Dushku on her role in Dollhouse. I like the idea here, I just hope the execution works.
  • Now for little light entertainment, the Power Puff Girls sing “Love Makes the World Go Round.” The early seasons of The Power Puff Girls are some of the best, and funniest, superhero episodes around. I particularly like Mojo Jo Jo…

  1. I need to go watch them over at AMC as I’ve never seen the series, just the odd clip or too featuring giant balls.

    Awww, Dude! I was about 5 years old when The Prisoner was on TV. One of my earliest childhood memories is of the “Rover” sucking people into it, with their agonized faces struggling from the inside. Gave me nightmares.

    Patrick McGoohan came into the store where I was working (I was in my 20s), and I told him about this.

    He shrugged and said, “Yeah, well, they’re still out there.”

  2. Reading that Fox article was like being at work…sounds like a lot of ‘executive speak’ to me.  They are going to have to prove to me that they are giving genre shows a chance by…oh, I don’t know…actually giving them a chance!

    I hope Dollhouse works as well, if only to see Eliza Dushku back on the screen.

  3. And now I’ve just heard that Patrick McGoohan has passed away.
