Kandyse McClure and David Anders have been cast in a remake of 'Children of the Corn'. Color me shocked it's premiering on the SciFi channel. On the plus side, it's another case of my fandoms colliding.
MGM and SciFi announce the greenlight for 'Stargate: Universe'. It's being compared to Battlestar Galactica and Enterprise. I hope it will be more like the former, but fear it will more closely resemble the latter. And this description makes it sound similar to Voyager:
"Universe" introduces a team of explorers who find an ancient unmanned ship called the Destiny. Unable to return to Earth, the crew must fend for themselves aboard the ship, which has a preprogramd mission taking them to the far reaches of the universe.
I'm also not thrilled with the 'we're aiming for a younger audience' mentality.
You know, it occurred to me the other day that depending on when SciFi opts to premiere the final episodes of BSG and ITV decides to premiere Law & Order: London I could be watching Jamie Bamber twice a week. Not that that idea has me excited or anything. ;)
