Heroes: Launch date

SCI FI Wire | The News Service of the SCI FI Channel

Looks like Heroes will air with a 2-hour, limited commercials pilot on Sept. 25th. Thereafter it will be on Monday’s at 9pm ET on NBC.

I’ve heard some doubts that this will be a successful show, but I gotta say I think it will succeed.

JMS deluged with attention

JMSNews

J. Michael Straczynski, the creator/writer/producer of Babylon 5 and Crusade, has been writing for television for twenty years. He’s been pretty successful at it, too. He doesn’t just write for TV, though. He’s also writing for comics (currently The Amazing Spider-Man, among others), and has published anthologies, short stories, novels, articles, and just about anything else you can imagine. The guy literally writes all but three days of the year, if I remember correctly. . . . → Read More: JMS deluged with attention

Star Wars in 3-D: Not happening soon

Star Wars: Community | starwars.com at Comic-Con 2006 At the recent Comic-Con, Steve Sansweet, head of Fan Relations, dropped some depressing news about one of the more anticipated Star Wars rumors of the last year or so:

George and Rick are really excited about the technology they have seen in 3-D… they showed about 10 minutes of Star Wars at a trade industry show about a year ago, and there was a lot of great . . . → Read More: Star Wars in 3-D: Not happening soon

Rumor has it that the second season of Doctor Who will air along with the third season of Battlestar Galactica in October on cable’s Sci-Fi Channel.

New theme selected for Caddickisms

Apparently I suck at CSS. After two days of not being able to get the layout to flex correctly, I went in search of other examples to help me figure it out, and instead found a theme that was almost what I was shooting for to begin with.

SO… not being a complete idiot, I gave up my own theme project and will use Tiga from now on (though I will customize it a bit . . . → Read More: New theme selected for Caddickisms

Caddickisms undergoing theme testing

Don’t be alarmed if this page looks horrible.

I’m currently learning how to create my own theme, and I’m too lazy to create a development site for myself, so this is going to jump around between established themes and a crazy, completely broken one.

I’ll put everything back in working order before the night is out.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

‘Stargate’ sequels (Note: NOT SG-1)

GateWorld – News: Devlin optimistic about ‘Stargate’ sequels

Dean Devlin, producer of the original 1994 movie Stargate, seems to be moving forward with two sequels to the film, which was apparently meant as the kickoff to a trilogy from the beginning.

Devlin was never a big supporter of what has become a record-breaking TV spinoff of his creation, though he says he is proud of Stargate: SG-1 for its success.

In fact, the article states:

Ted Koppel on Iran & US involvement in Middle East

FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH | Bryce Zabel: Koppel on Iran

I don’t plan to get into politics too much on this blog, but I do agree with Zabel that this is an excellent and important article for people to read and understand.

Bryce Zabel is going to be a professor at USC. If his class is anywhere near as informative and entertaining as his blog, I think his students will be well served. He said a few things that disturbed me, though.
