How My Day Was Saved By MGM

First day back after vacation and it both sucked and blew. I won't go into all of it, but to cap the day off I didn't really need to discover my car is rusting in two spots (this is on top of the air-conditioning being close to failing me) and my mother realizing that, yes, I hate my job and it makes me unhappy so let's talk about it for an hour! Sigh.

So I decide to run to two things that do make me happy - chocolate and my Flist. And what do I find? OMG THE PRECIOUS!

MGM Will Release the Complete SG1 in October!


While $300 (listed retail) seems steep that's only $30 a season! And there will be four bonus discs! And I'm sure it will be in a very pretty box! EEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Let's try and focus on some more positive. Ellen Muth is blogging that if the Dead Like Me direct to DVD film does well, MGM wants to relaunch the series. And do take a peak at Ellen's blog, she actually replies to the messages left there. Which either makes her very cool or very crazy.

The USA Network is declaring 'Burn Notice' a hit. Woo! Maybe this means Bruce Campbell will be too busy to do really crappy SciFi movies. Probably not.

Kyle XY is a weird convergence of fandoms. Not difficult for a show that shoots in Vancouver. Still, seeing Janet (Teryl Rothery), Krychek (Nick Lea), and Racetrack (Leah Cairns) all in one place is weird. Too bad the show wasn't better or I probably would make an effort to tune in regularly.

For my fellow James Cagney fans, there is a new LJ community, jamescagney. I think this is a perfect opportunity for me to expand my LJ interests. Plus, if a kerfuffle manages to break out there it will be amusing rather than rage inducing. ;)

And, finally (see what happens when I can't sleep?), Eureka premieres tomorrow night at 9est. I know, you're sitting there thinking, "She watches 'Eureka'?" Nope! But I will tomorrow night because there will be an extended promo for Battlestar Galactica. So you all set your Tivo/DVRs so we can analyze it to death over the next week or so. :)

I love Dead Like Me. I actually bought the Seasons 1 and 2 DVDs which says a lot if you know me. The only other DVDs I have ever bought are Buffy and Angel.
I got S1 for Christmas and S2 for my birthday and still haven't watched them (I've only seen the edited eps on SciFi), but I definitely intend to do so before the film comes out. I need to post a pic of my DVD collection. It's getting rather scary. ;)

I am astonished they announced this before the Season 10 sets even started shipping. *cancels pre-order*

Also, I still feel like I created a monster.

I think it is safe to say you are to blame. Perhaps you could make it up to me by giving me $300. ;)
if a kerfuffle manages to break out there

Why wait... Try this!

Cagney was a transexual: discuss.
Thank you for the Cagney Community! I have joined, answered the questionaire, and added many lovely icons from jordannamorgan :)

One thing I wanted to mention to you, in case you weren't aware - I recently bought the 3-disc set of The Maltese Falcon; on the third disc they have a feature called Breakdowns of 1941. It consists of outtakes of Warner Bros. films of 1940, and there are a ton of Torrid Zone and a few of The Bride Came C.O.D.. I don't know if you're a fan of the film, but that feature in itself is worth the price ;)
You're welcome! I read your answers and, surprise! (not), we are of very like minds. :)

I can't say I'm a huge fan of The Maltese Falcon, but I've seen it, enjoyed it, and the outtakes certainly make it more appealing. ;) I'll have to throw it on the wish list.
I'm going to try and figure out if I can either burn it on my computer or copy it onto a tape for you. Copying onto a tape might be the less dangerous route for me if you don't mind watching a tape :)
If there is a kerfuffle in a James Cagney community, there must be grapefruit-in-the-face icons. I decided that there should be anyway, but I couldn't find a good quality pic.

Good news about "Dead Like Me," but I'll wait to get my hopes up. At least with the movie, there's a chance we'll find out more about that thing George did at the end of season 2. And maybe Mason will smuggle more drugs.
Regardless of the Cagney community, I think there need to be more grapefruit-in-the-face icons - it could work in so many fandoms! ;)

I'd give the chances of DLM coming back as a series as about 50/50. Brokering a network or syndication deal could be tricky. However, if the direct to DVD film does well I could easily see them doing more of those.
The USA Network is declaring 'Burn Notice' a hit. Woo! Maybe this means Bruce Campbell will be too busy to do really crappy SciFi movies. Probably not.

Of course it won't stop him from making crappy scifi movies. Half the time, he's one of the producers! I'm quickly getting hooked on Burn Notice though. I just adore clever, smart-ass heroes. :)
I think last night's ep has been my favorite thus far. The teenager was getting on my nerves a bit, but eventually redeemed herself by finally understanding what exactly was happening.
