Asta 2


I just finished Season 3 of Stargate, at work. I don't have an Ipod so, instead, I listen to shows while I'm working. I had listened to some Season 1 and Season 2 episodes, but it wasn't until Hulu debuted the third season last week that I managed to make my way through (most of) a season. Yesterday, as I realized I only had a few episodes left and was lamenting that fact, I had a flashback to how I became hooked on the series. Damn you Season 3 with your improved writing, character development, team bonding, mythology and world building!

I was also was reminded how much the last Indiana Jones film ripped off the 'Crystal Skull' episode. And that the Replicators have been around longer than I recalled. And Jack used to look really good in a black tee shirt.

The BSG actors can't resist the pull of SciFi/SyFy it seems. James Callis's craptastic (TV Squad's word! Though, I'll likely agree. ;) SciFi Saturday film Book of Beasts airs tomorrow night. And Tricia Helfer, Michael Hogan, and Mark Sheppard will all be appearing at various times on Warehouse 13.

According to After Elton, the upcoming Season 4.5 and Complete Series BSG boxed sets will not include the 'Face of the Enemy' webisodes. WTF NBCU? After Elton could not get a straight answer as to why they are omitted.

A reminder that ABC begins airing the final three episodes of Pushing Daisies beginning tomorrow night at 10:00 est. Having seen the episodes ;), I can confirm that the series does have closure, albeit through a post production, tacked on ending. While I feel another hour of or two would have provided a truly satisfying end to the series, I commend Bryan Fuller for tying up as many loose ends as he could as best he could.
