    I’ve been pretty surprised that nothing regarding Majel Barret-Roddenbery death on the 18th hasn’t been posted anywhere here. I mean did you guys tape before the 18th? I know you had the story about her voicing for the JJ Abrams Star Trek… Or am I just missing it?

  2. Skiznot says

    I think Kevin McKid can definitely pull it off for Thor but I think he is actually kinda short. I work in down town San Francisco and I was going for lunch when they were filming the journeyman pilot (didn’t know anything about it, just knew they were filming someting) and I saw the guy from rome in a sports coat and I think he was shorter than me by a bit and I’m only 5’11.

    who seaid “meh” to BSG grrrrr. BSG and SCC are the only real sci-fi games in town worth my time. I’m finding the writing on SCC very understated yet compelling; they’re not trying to do too much at once just living in the moment with the arc creepin along. Heroes I still watch but its more like a casual sci-fi party.
