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.

Get a grip.

I was upset like everyone else about the death of a key character on Torchwood, but apparently some people are REALLY UPSET.

Here are a couple of related links:

Den of Geek makes the case of why the newly dead key character needs to stay dead.

Russell T. Davies isn’t helping things with comments like this.

WARNING: Spoilers contained in those links in case you haven’t finished watching Children of Earth yet, and honestly people, let’s get caught up so we can gossip about it.

I’m totally over this whole Summer thing.

fanEveryone in Oregon enjoying the 100+ degree heat? I’m choosing to do the sensible thing and hide in my cave until the sun goes down. Here’s some goodies I found while wandering around the interwebs today:

Check out the True Blood clip that debuted at Comic Con, along with some character revelations from creator, Alan Ball.

NJ.com recaps the Doctor Who panel at this year’s Comic Con.

Highlights from the Torchwood/Being Human panel at CC via Zap2it. Warning: Contains spoilers if you haven’t finished watching Torchwood: Children of Earth yet.

Eureka is coming back for a fourth season. Yay! Airlock Alpha has details on upcoming episodes and talks to Neil Grayson(Fargo) about being the voice of SARAH.

If you are lucky enough to be in Baltimore on July 30th, you can attend the Baltimore Museum of Industry’s wrap up party for the close of  The Wire exhibit, which officially ends on August 1st.

Jon Stewart + Brian Williams = Best Daily Show Ever. Ok, I’m exaggerating, but it was really funny.

I think that’s enough to get you started, try to stay cool if you can…

With all the new and returning Sci Fi shows, I was beginning to get a little lost. Click here for a roundup of all the Sci Fi shows airing this summer, along with air dates and brief descriptions.

Also, anyone hear that Kevin Williamson is looking to bring back the Scream franchise? Why dear Lord why???

I love you BBC America. I thought all hope was lost with the end of 30 Rock and that damn AMC pushing Mad Men back to August, but now, thanks to you wonderful people, my summer tv viewing is really starting to look up. Here is the latest:

  • The new Doctor Who specials will begin airing starting with the Christmas special on June 27th. Entertainment Weekly has a short clip here.
  • The Doctor’s new assistant has also been announced. She is Karen Gillan, who you might remember from “The Fires of Pompeii” episode. Matt Smith is the new Doctor.
  • SciFi Wire has the newest Torchwood trailer, which starts airing this July.
  • SF Universe has the lowdown on what the hell Being Human is all about. It’s a strange premise, but from the reviews I’ve read from people who have already seen it in the UK, I will give it a chance. The series begins on July 28th.

Now if they would just bring back Mistresses for another season, all would be right in the world.
