A new show to watch?

Filed under: tv news, video — Tags: — gina64 @ 1:07 pm

This is TNT’s new sci-series called Falling Skies, which is produced by Steven Spielberg. It looks like it might be pretty good, although I’m not too hot about Noah Wyle as the lead. He’s cute and all, but he’s more a sensitive guy/goofball than a leading man/hero type. Even still, it can’t be much worse than ABC’s alien-invasion show V, which, despite being pretty damn boring, I am still watching.

I’ll let you know what I think.

Legendary Looks

I stumbled upon this great video while searching for an X-files Christmas video – very hard to come by, BTW! – and felt the need to share. I wish Castle and Beckett had this much chemistry.

Hey everyone who is still coming here: Thank you! The holidays are upon us and I am under the gun, like everyone. Add to that the fact that the power adapter for my laptop burned out last week – the third one, for crying out loud! – and you have my sorry excuse for not posting more often.

As a token of appeasement, I give you this.

Look back here for more fun holiday stuff today! And thanks!

Today’s Tweets: Terriers Post-Mortem

Filed under: tv news, video — Tags: , — gina64 @ 2:58 pm

That’s right, I said Terriers post-mortem. FX announced today that it has canceled the best new show on television. I understand why – the show’s ratings were so low, I think the audience consisted of me and about 7 other people – but I don’t have to like it.

Via @sepinwallfX Cancels Terriers

Via @televisionaryPutting the Dog to Sleep

Via @marklisanti – “RIP, Terriers. Let’s all enjoy what we had and promise not to sully your legacy by mailing thousands of pregnancy tests to FX.

Via @IMDbTVTim Minear, producer of canceled Terriers, says “No Regrets”

Via @moryan‘Terriers’ Canceled by fX

Via @ShaunRyanTV – “Interestingly, getting a show cancelled seems to do wonders for attracting new Twitter followers.

As Mo says in her column, this cancellation really felt like a kick in the stomach. I find it difficult to grasp the idea that we have heard the last from these characters. They seemed so real, there’s no way that they can’t really exist. At least that’s how my mind is working right now.

I do want to encourage those who didn’t watch it to check out the DVDs. You maybe understandably be thinking, “Why bother?” All I can say is it’s worth it. Some character issues are left open-ended in the finale but the overall plot is resolved, making these 13 episodes something of a perfect maxi-mini-series. Like Firefly, Terriers will go down in TV history as one of the great, one-season wonders.

Last night’s Fringe?

Filed under: reviews — Tags: — gina64 @ 1:51 pm

Amazing! Fabulous! I really do LOVE this show.

I don’t have the time to say much more than that right now, but I promise to have recaps for “Entrada” and “The Abducted” before the weekend is out.

For now, I’ll leave you with what is quite possibly the funniest thing that Walter has said so far:

“She tricked my son with her carnal manipulations, and he fell right into her vagenda!”
