Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles will be released on DVD August 19th.

And 'Life' is to be released on DVD September 2nd.

Steven Moffat is to succeed Russell T Davies as Lead Writer and Executive Producer of the fifth series of Doctor Who to air in 2010. I love Moffat's writing on the show so I'm very pleased by this news.

I watched the season finales of Bones and House last night. I may have more to say on House later. I'm still processing what I saw. And I mean that in the (mostly) good way. I was surprised at how emotional I got while watching it.

I generally don't post about Bones, but I feel compelled to given some plot twists in the final episode of the season. First of all, Booth made one hell of a recovery from that gunshot wound. Days later he's part of a sting operation, gets into a fist fight, and is back on the job. Even more impressive than his physical healing is his the way he's able to rebound emotionally. It's like it never happened! (Can you sense the sarcasm?)

Zack is the apprentice? Really? I'm just not buying it. I knew that a cast member was leaving the show and Zack, to me, was the most expendable, but I thought they'd come up with a better scenario than this. I don't care how vulnerable he is, I just can't buy that he would have been approached by the master (and who else had Dracula flashbacks? Specifically, Buffy vs Dracula flashbacks?) and, oh, not mention it to anyone. To make it more implausible, he was talked into committing murder. Sigh. This show handles arcs about as well as House does. Please, just stick to the corpse of the week and the Booth/Brennan snarking.

TV Guide posted an interview with Eric Millegan (Zack) this afternoon. In it he helps to clarify why Zack's post-traumatic stress was dropped and he expresses his disappointment that they cut a key moment from his final scene. The interview can be found here.
