Canceled. The word that seems to follow so many of my favorite shows. I didn’t even share my grief with you all over the cancellation of Chicago Code. The pain is still too deep.

Read the official statement from SyFy(still hating that name by the way) about the cancellation here.

EW asks what this means for the future of SyFy.

Erica Cera(Depuy Lupo) gives here thoughts on the end of Eureka.

CNN has a few celebrity reactions to the cancellation.

I will go drown myself in a pint of Three Twins and console myself with the knowledge that there is still a Christmas special and season 5 to look forward to.

‘Tis the season for zombies.

I know Christmas was yesterday, but with the whole laptop crashing stuff, I’m just getting around to finding all the fun stuff I missed on the interwebs in December.

Did you know there was a book of Zombie Christmas Carols? I have got to get my act together and come up with something Zombie related to start making some money. I found the link thru one of my favorite authors, Christopher Moore. If you haven’t read his stuff, you are seriously missing out, my friend. Pick up a copy of The Stupidest Angel , it’s a perfect story to read for the holidays and it has zombies!

Here’s a favorite Christmas song…Zombiefied:

ZOMBIE THE SNOW MAN

(Sung to the tune of Frosty, The Snowman

Zombie the Snow Man was a jolly, happy ghoul,

With a corncob pipe and some boy’s nose and two eyes he got at school.

Zombie the Snow Man is a fairy tale, they say;

He was undead it’s so, but the children know how he came

Back to life one day.

There must have been a virus in that old silk hat they found,

For when they placed it on his head, he began to dance around.

Oh, Zombie the Snow Man was alive as he could be,

And the children say he ate brains all day as they tried to run away.

Zombie the Snow Man knew the brains were fresh that day,

So he said,”Please run, because it’s lots more fun when I eat your brain that way”.

Down through the village with a femur in his hand,

Running here and there all around the square, sayin’

“Decaptiate me if you can!”

He chased them through the streets of town and ate the traffic cop

And he barely paused a moment when, he heard the cops brain pop!”

Zombie the Snow Man had to hurry on his way,

But he waved good-by, sayin’, “Please do cry and I’ll eat your brains again someday!”

Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump,

Look at that Frosty go;

Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump,

Over the hills of snow.

Doctor Who returns tonight!

davidmorrisey

I almost forgot that the the next Doctor Who special airs tonight on BBC America! This is the Christmas one, starring David Morrissey as a man claiming to be Doctor Who. From the picture it’s obvious that Cybermen play a role in the show, I wish the series would stop coming back to the same characters like the Cyberman and Daleks but I still think this episode will rock.

Speaking of time travel, I just spent the last few days reading The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. I don’t know if you’ve read it, but the story is about a man who travels back and forth in time visiting his future wife at various stages in her life. I found so many things wrong with this book. For one thing, it was waaaaay too long, a little editing could have helped the pacing immensely. Another thing that really bothered me was that I was creeped out by the idea of a grown man visiting his future wife at age 6, age 15, etc. The writer tried to make it clear that he was separating his romantic feelings until she was 18, but does that make it any less creepy? Not really, especially when he comes to visit her at 43 and seduces his then 18 year old future wife! Ugh. I had so many problems with this book. I need to find something good to cleanse the ick factor from my brain. Any suggestions?

Here’s a clip from the film version of the book. It starts off with a much older Henry meeting his wife to be at age 6:
