This Week's Premieres in Preview (Article) - 10/2/2006 9:34:36 AM

While I agree that Battlestar Galactica has become a true masterpiece and stadard barer for genre drama any drama really(easily as engaging as anything on the networks), and Eureka has a very appealing cast and concept, I would argue that in house SciFi channel series up til now have sucked. While SciFi has indeed had more than their share of sucky series, and well more han there share of unwatchable TV movies, they were also responsible bringning Farscape to TV audiences. A series that has arguably done as much as the Whedon trinity (Buffy, Angel, and Firefly) to redefine our expectations for what genre entertainment is capable of. And Invisible Man, First Wave, and The Chronicle, while in Battlestar's weight-class(though Farscape certainly is), are at least in Eureka's league and provided refreshingly intelligent wit and drama in a time the networks were only prepared to give us Survivor and Survivor clones. I second the above post that a breakdown of the weeks schedule would be great. I look forward to seeing more of your colomn.

I'd to second the question in an earlier Post. What has happened to Jason's TV Wasteland? I always looked forward to that column and almost two weeks now it's been gone.

Well now we know the FX will kick ass. Now if they can just Peter Jackson to direct it.

Gotta say I'm looking forward to this and the second seasn of the new Doctor Who more than most any of network Fall season shows. I'm especially interested in the reunion between Leoben and Kara(Starbuck). And in seeing what happens to the Boomers on Galactica and New Caprica. Should be great stuff on the horizon.

Rachel Bilson to play Wonder Woman? (Article) - 9/21/2006 9:31:05 AM

I agree Charisma Capender would be great especially if the movie was gonna have good comedy in it, and Whedon at the helm that's pretty likely. Moren Baccarin would be just about perfect. She has a very emotive and intense. Great for a superhero drama. Of course as a Farscape fan I thought of throwing Claudia Black's name into the hat, but I'm not enirely sure it would work. I love nothing more than to see her become the Signorney Weaver(from her alien days), the other great action heroin of of our time. Given her time as Aeryn in Farscape we she can heavy duty action and drama. And we've seen her do great comdy on Stargate, and after seeing that I've been more than intrigued at the idea of talent for acting comedy coupled with Whedon's talent for writing it. But for some reason the image Claudia in the Wonder Woman outfit seems a bit too gaudy and distracting. And for some reason less so on Baccarin or Charpender. I thought of Eliza Dushku but she hasn't quite the regal down. I definitely see a down and dirty street fighting Huntress role in her future. If we ever see another live action Super Girl, Kristen Bell all the way. Anyway, whoever plays the role if Whedon's directing it, it makes my must see list.
