Wednesday News and Thoughts

Superman News:
Looks like Kevin Spacey will be in the next Superman sequel. Superman: Man of Steel is supposedly set for a 2009 release. Two years away yet. It’s just torture to even read news items like this.

Kyle XY:
In Monday night’s episode, Kyle has embraced his gifts and finally sets about using them to help people. Namely his love interest, Amanda. This is his first real “case.” And he not only helps out the victim by sacrificing something valuable to him, but he actually helps out a thief as well.

Flash Gordon News

SciFi Wire talks more on what’s being updated in the new Flash Gordon remake.

After painfully watching Painkiller Jane, I don’t have high hopes for this newest SciFi Channel show. And I think it’s pretty gutsy to order 22 episodes right away.

“The show will take Ming ‘into more of a kind of Saddam Hussein, dictator type of character and play with some of those themes of control over the masses and propaganda’…”
That right there is the biggest turn-off.
