I just recently found out that two of my brothers-in-law didn't know anything about the new Clone Wars movie or the TV series it's setting up. This post is forStar Wars: Clone Wars videos (and an Obi-Wan debate settled)

It's very simple, really. They brought me this: I make jokes about awesomeness all the time. That is truly awesome. The dad in that video is a friend of mine from college.Why Facebook and YouTube are cool

Obviously the European fascists are being hurt by the global economic problems. In an effort save money, they've apparently let their entire marketing department go. While I applaud their frugality,Slow economy affects European fascist marketing

The fall TV season is upon us. Are there any shows out there worthy of watching this year? Any guilty pleasures you've just gotta have? Anything that just drains theFlashing Forward to Fall TV

Return to MidMo and other short subjects

My second guest shot on the Midnight Movie Club was posted this week, reviewing the film “Return To Me” (with a stellar cast led by David Duchovny and Minnie Driver – in the movie, not the podcast). If the stats are accurate, many of you missed this film when it came out in 2000 (though the odds are apparently better if you were in an airplane around then). That’s a shame because it’s a great . . . → Read More: Return to MidMo and other short subjects

More recent sci-fi updates

Well, my last sci-fi news post was a bit late, but all this news is at least recent-ish.

First off, two bits of Battlestar Galactica related stories:

The Sci-Fi channel has apparently officially given the green light to BSG spin-off “Caprica” with a 2010 kickoff.

The series, which will focus on the the Earthlike planet of Caprica as two rival families deal with, among other topical issues, the broader implications of their society’s emerging . . . → Read More: More recent sci-fi updates

TV updates: 24 and Smallville (w/spoilers)

The networks released their schedules for next year this week. No surprise: Smallville and 24 are both reappearing in the schedules. However, there has been surprising news/rumors about both shows…

24

Jack is back, and as an appeasement from the long wait since last season, we get a 2-hour movie on November 23rd:

24 is also scheduled to return full time in January of 2009. (A spoiler is below.) However, to reward fans who have . . . → Read More: TV updates: 24 and Smallville (w/spoilers)

Smallville, Dr. Who, and Torchwood facts and rumors

Smallville will be back for an eighth season next year! But without Lex, and without Lana. Michael Rosenbaum and Kristen Kreuk are calling it quits after this year. Apparently they’re both open for guest spots next year, but that’s it. I’m okay with Lana leaving. I think they’ve milked that character for all it’s worth at this point. Dropping Lex, however, is a potential death knell for viewership. The interplay between Lex and Clark, and . . . → Read More: Smallville, Dr. Who, and Torchwood facts and rumors

Review: Cheaper by the Dozen 2

I enjoyed the original Cheaper by the Dozen. [tag]Steve Martin[/tag] is one of my favorite comedic actors, and [tag]Bonnie Hunt[/tag] combines sweet and funny better than almost anyone. Adding [tag]Eugene Levy[/tag], another hilarious actor (given the right role), to the mix should have upped the ante and made it funnier, but it really didn’t.

Dozen 2 was sweet, funny at times, and a nice family movie. It was also rather bland, predictable, and formulaic. There . . . → Read More: Review: Cheaper by the Dozen 2
