FOX Trip

Today, I’m on my way to sunny California.
Why?
People at FOX were kind enough to fly me and other web-based media people out for a set tour/meet and greet with the cast of the new show The Sarah Connor Chronicles!
I’ll be back… in a couple of days. Check back later this week for highlights of the trip… and more on the upcoming show!

Here’s an early trailer:

NBC Links

This just in from my source, Shankar, promoting NBC shows –

Two items for you today: First, this is freshly uploaded to the Web, not available in any other NBC or Universal Home Entertainment promos. It’s a clip from the visual effects special features, in which visual effects supervisor Mark Kolpack talks about a common bond he and Heroes star Masa Oki share—Oki also worked in special effects before he began his acting career. Check out this new Heroes clip from the Season 1 DVD boxed set on YouTube:

Flash Trash

I caught the premier of the new Flash Gordon on the SciFi Channel Friday night. And wasted a good hour of my life. They cancelled the Dresden Files and put their hope in this show? I think something is seriously wrong with these people. They wouldn’t know a good show if it slapped them in the face.

Not only was Flash Gordon as corny as a B movie, but the special effects look like they came out of someone’s basement. The dialog and writing was laughable, and not in a good way. Basically, Doctor Who (for the bizarreness) threw up on Flash Gordon. Every cheesy science fiction element is here.

Way to give science fiction a bad name, SciFi Channel!

Tin Man

This December, the SciFi Channel will be airing the Tin Man miniseries, a darker take on L. Frank Baum’s classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. To promote the upcoming show, SciFi is releasing a digital comicbook with backstory on the characters.
