Torchwood coming to the US.

I’ve been a little busy, so I missed the announcement that Torchwood is coming to Starz. I’m cautiously optimistic about the news. FOX had been interested in bringing the show to the US but ended up passing. That was fine by me since there were rumors that they planned on making changes to Captain Jack’s omnisexual nature. Captain Jack as a straight man?!? As if.

Why Flash Forward was cancelled.

TV Squad lists the “Four Reasons Flash Forward Was Cancelled”:

“The bottom line is that the creators failed to deliver on the promise of the premise. People were intrigued by the idea of ‘FlashForward.’ The pilot tested well and, by early buzz, it looked like ABC may have found their “replacement” for ‘Lost.’ But while ‘Lost’ got more and more complex and intense as it went along, ‘FlashForward’ quickly went off the rails.”

Say goodbye to another show.

Flash Forward is officially cancelled. So, that happened. Ugh.

This is why I hate watching shows like FF. I liked this show in the beginning, then ABC thought it would be a really cool idea to take a break in the middle of the drama. When it came back it had lost a big chunk of it’s following and was never able to get it back. Apparently, they will also be leaving viewers hanging with several unresolved questions.

April is my new favorite month.

April is going to be a brilliant month for television.  Fringe returns on April 1st,  two weeks earlier than planned due to the demise of Past Life, the brand new adventures of Doctor Who with Matt Smith begins on April 17th and Treme debuts on April 11th. I think that should hold me until True Blood returns in June, don’t you think? Here are some links for you to enjoy:

New York Magazine has the new trailer for Treme.

BSC has a few promo pics from the new Fringe episode “Peter”.

Check out Doctor Who’s newest companion, Karen Gillian, in this photo spread for Grazia. Interesting hair do she’s got going on.

Supernatural recap – spoilers ahead…

SUPERNATURAL

If you missed the return of Supernatural lastnight, get thee to iTunes and watch it, because damn it was amazing. You can get a full recap over at Zap2It here.

The portal from hell is open for business and Lucifer set out in search of a vessel(meat suit) to inhabit before he takes control/burns the world. Bobby turned all black eyed demon and then stabbed himself to get the demon to exit his body, so he’s now in a hospital. I really think Bobby has used up at least 8 of his 9 lives. Meg the bitch demon came back to briefly torment/beat up the Winchesters before exiting in a black mist. Castiel was allegedly blown apart by Zachariah and the other angels in the FBI suits, but made an appearance just in time to save Sam and Dean from being torn to shreds by Zachariah and his sidekicks. The show ended on a happy note though, with Lucifer convincing the vessel to let him take his body over and Dean telling Sam he can never trust him again.

I have officially found my new tv obsession. Move over Glee.

Also, here’s a freebiego here to download the song “O Death”, from last season.

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:
