Star Trek on Heroes

Does anyone else feel like Heroes is slowly turning into a who’s-who of former Star Trek actors? First George Takei, now Nichelle Nichols and Dominic Keating. Not that I’m complaining. I’ve enjoyed their cameos. In fact, I wish Keating’s was longer.

Actors on science fiction shows shouldn’t be too afraid of being typecast. There’s always another scifi show around the bend, and the fans will always support.

Premier Week Thoughts

So I finally caught up on all of my premiers this week:

Chuck – Cute, funny, and plenty of promise.
UPDATE: GiveMeMyRemote.com is holding a Chuck giveaway! Check it out!

Heroes – A bit confusing, but what else is new? And Peter’s back.. that’s all I care about!

Journeyman – Snore. I’ll still give a few more episodes to redeem itself though.

Reaper – A bit funny, but not of enough interest to me to keep watching.

Bionic Woman – Dark and exciting. I’m hoping this one gets better character development, if it’s to go anywhere.

The Office – Spectacular in every way.

Smallville – Supergirl gets major billing along with the rest of the main cast. And she didn’t even have to say a word in this episode. There seemed to be way too much going on to fit into one hour-long episode. Bizzaro was defeated a little too easily.

Stargate: Atlantis – Jewel Stait is the new Doc! She was great. And continuing from last season’s cliffhanger, Atlantis just keeps getting more exciting! Still my favorite show.

Moonlight – Surprisingly fun. Vamp, Mick St. John has a sense of humor. And I enjoyed his character more than I thought I would. It’s no Blood Ties, but I’m looking forward to see where this one goes.

What were your favorites?
Which were disappointments?

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:
