Bill Killed

David Carradine was found dead today in Bangkok where he was shooting a movie.

Well…shit.

UPDATE: Suicide?

UPDATE: Or not? Ok internet speculation overload. I’m done.

Buffy movie

Sigh. Why is this necessary in life. Apparently the asshat that ruined Buffy in the first place with the nonsense that was Luke Perry is making another “reimagining” of Buffy for “a new generation”. None of the original cast are involved, and as far as I know Joss isn’t involved.

So here’s my prediction: 1) Buffy, played by someone in her 30s with big boobs pretending to be a teenager, engages in some adventure with her “teenager” friends and cheap teenage angst (with monsters) ensues which worked as a show because it’s TV but will not make any goddamn sense to be worth 10$ in a theatre or 2) something non-canon will happen in the timeline after Season 7 with more adult versions of Buffy and her friends (whoever they may be) and cheap adult sex (wth monsters) ensues.

This comes on the heels of some other wtf news. A Twitter TV show? Srsly??!

UPDATE: The Buffy movie is a complete reimagining tangential to the previous Buffy universe. Read: Twilight 2.0 in theatres 2011. Bandwagon, ftw!

Old Buffy posts revisited – Characters

So the other thing I found was character summaries of the various Buffy characters to accompany our season summaries. We are some huge ass nerds. Man alive.  More…

Old website posts revived

I was going through some stuff I had from old websites and some were too good/sentimental/hilarious to not repost so for the next week or 2 (however many I have of these) I’m going to schedule a repost of some of these articles. For the first one, I bring you my scathing review of the movie Cheaper by the Dozen, which is easily one of the worst movies ever made. I wrote this back in 2003 when the movie came out, but it’s remained a bit of an inside joke in my house “oh look our favorite movie is on” when it is on TV. Wow, did I ever hate that movie. More…

Lost Live Blog (better late than never) – The Incident

So I watched the finale of Lost last week and got caught up in life stuff and didn’t blog about it. I also missed a few episodes in between. Oops. Anyway, here is my last Lost post for this season.

And we have our first casualty – thanks, Fox

Fox has cancelled The Sarah Connor Chronicles. On a cliffhanger, of course. Really, Fox? Really?! Fuck.

Well, at least this weekend brings the awesome of Terminator Salvation.

Edit: And there’s this pipe dream. Keep reaching for that rainbow, folks.

Saving Dollhouse in 3 easy steps

Apparently Fox is considering renewing Dollhouse for a second season. And they will if they know what’s good for them (i.e., not having hard core Joss Whedon fans finally snap and firebomb the lot of them). As with most shows, it started off with the speed and grace of a cancerous space slug before finding its stride to awesomeness. More…
