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. Kyle is truly every bit the boy scout that Clark Kent is. I just hope they don’t go the same route with the relationship with Amanda as they do with Lana in Smallville. The “will they, won’t they” thing gets old really fast. Especially, when in Smallville, you know they don’t end up together.

“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.

Kyle XY – Confession Time

I have a confession to make. And it’s pretty embarrassing to admit.

I have recently become obsessed with Kyle XY, from ABC Family channel. The supporting cast are definitely not the best actors. The story has been very predictable so far. The morals of the the Trager family are less than appropriate for a family channel. And they always have a tug-at-your-heart-strings ending to every episode.

Then why do I love the show?

Stargate Atlantis News

As a huge fan of Stargate, I can’t help but get excited for this news. According to SciFiWire:

Producers of SCI FI Channel’s original series Stargate Atlantis told SCI FI Wire that the upcoming fourth season will add former Firefly cast member Jewel Staite to the cast as a new doctor. Staite, who also appeared in the Firefly feature film, Serenity, will play Dr. Jennifer Keller. She joins Stargate SG-1 cast member Amanda Tapping, who also joins Atlantis’ cast, reprising her role of Col. Samantha Carter.
