  • NBC’s interesting looking alternate Earth series, Kings is set to air on March 15th at 8pm. A couple of interesting points: NBC calls this a ‘magic realism’ drama series, it is a modern day re-telling of the story of King David, and its scheduled air day is Sunday evenings which may not bode well.
  • USA Today had fans of LOST send in their questions for the brain trust to ‘answer’. The result is this neat video answer session with Cuse and Lindeloff. As a bonus, you can catch up on where the cast was left at the end of last season. Next week can’t get here soon enough…

  • Not to be outdone, The LA Times chats with visual effects supervisor for Galactica, Gary Hutzel. How cool would that job be? Just think of all the SF goodness in just the space battles alone.

  • We all know the Japanese love seafood and robots. Bud Light decided to combine these two cultural tendencies with the ‘taste’ of beer. What we get is the following commercial:

  1. I saw a long preview of sorts for Kings in the theater today before seeing Defiance.  I leaned over to my wife and predicted it would be cancelled by the 5th episode.   Your listed description here actually makes it sound interesting.  The preview indicated nothing that is similar to what you mention here and it just didn’t look good at all.
