  1. Great show! I can’t believe Michael and Joe hadn’t heard of “7 Days.” It was on right before Star Trek Voyager on wednesday nights back in the day, and yes it’s still on spiketv.

  2. Sci-Fi Wire have posted an exclusive preview of an extended scene from the upcoming DVD release of Joss Whedon’s science fiction space western movie Serenity.

    The scene features a bit more of Shepherd Book (Ron Glass). It’s one of the features on the the upcoming DVD, which also includes commentary from writer/director Whedon; other deleted scenes and outtakes; the featurettes Future History: The Story of Earth That Was, What’s in a Firefly and Re-Lighting the Firefly; an introduction by Whedon; and more.

  3. Saw the pilot and first 1 episode during a Showtime free preview. Unfortunately, I don’t have Showtime (or HBO, dammit) so I never got to see any following episodes. I thought the pilot was really good and was sad to hear that it got canceled.
    Glad to see that it’s coming out on DVD. Now I can Netflix that bad boy!!

  4. Oh, and WITCHBLADE?
    That so completely rocks that I can’t stand it.
    I hope rehab was successful for Yancy.
    It’s been, what, 4 years since that show went away?
    Knowing how “Hollywood” works, they might think she’s now “too old” to play the part.

  5. Stonemonkey says:

    I think the show that ran with Time Trax and B-5, was Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. All great shows.

  6. Chris in Hawaii says:

    I can think of a superhero movie that didn’t deal with the character’s origins at all. It’s called The Incredibles and is easily one of if not THE best superhero movie made.

    MORE SUMMER!

    Send Evo back to the Skull Island he loves so much! We’ll send him beer.
