Tube Bits for 01/21/2009

  • From the ‘wouldn’t it be cool if’ department: Rumor has it that Warner Bros. is interested in giving JMS a pile of cash to write a big screen movie to continue Babylon 5. Wouldn’t it be cool to see the events after the end of season 5? Or to finish Crusade‘s story? Or may go back in time and see the first Shadow war.
  • The Chicago Sun Times clues the clueless in that, in fact, LOST will be all about time travel this season. As I write this, I wish time travel was real so could go to tomorrow (tonight) and watch LOST and then gloat here. But I can’t. Curse you arrow of time! I’m going to have to go back and watch the previous episodes that deal with time travel so I can try and understand the whole ‘course correction’ thing.
  • Media Daily News notes that while NBC is in last place ratings-wise and is losing viewers, its ‘net viewership far surpasses its rivals. What does it say about your shows that people flock to your website instead of your network?
  • Televixen lists her favorite SF TV captains. I’m assuming Televixen is of the younger persuasion as there is nary a Star Trek captain mentioned.
  • Sci Fi Wire has a short interview with the executive producers of NBC’s upcoming series, Kings. The cover the ‘magical realism’ of the show and why they chose an ‘alternate reality’ city akin to New York for the show.

Has nothing interesting to say so in the interest of time, will get on with not saying it.

  1. Thanks for linking to my blog post … I’m actually not that young. I’m just not a Star Trek fan, except a year long flirtation with TNG in my pre-teen years during the late 80s.
