Those sets have the extras you see in the pic above (deleted scenes, bloopers, interviews, etc), plus...a videotape! That's one of the cooler extras you'll find in a DVD set, eh?

Io9's sci-fi chart: possibly the geekiest post ever

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 2nd 2009 7:29PM
The 100 Lives of Blackjack SavageThe science fiction blog Io9 has a chart up at their site that tracks the themes that have been used on sci-fi TV shows since 1970. How many shows have been about time travel, robots, aliens, space travel, and/or mutants? Is there a trend to the themes of sci-fi shows over the years? (Here's the complete list of shows they looked at to create the chart.)

New TV on DVD releases this week

Fairly OddParentsHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I started watching The Fairly OddParents a few years ago and completely fell in love with it. I have a couple of the DVD sets, but I was never sure how the DVD sets were organized. Sometimes they're by a "theme" and sometimes they're by a season or volume. But now we have actual complete season sets for seasons one and two, and I'm really looking forward to having them. Funny, though, how no one can agree whether it's Fairly OddParents or Fairly Odd Parents. I see it spelled both ways everywhere.

I won't be buying the Highlander: The Animated Series set though., There can be only one animated set to buy this week and I'm going with OddParents.

What the heck is Legend of the Seeker?

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 27th 2008 1:46PM
Legend of the SeekerIt sounds like the title of an mid-90s game show on Nickelodeon, but it's actually the title of a new syndicated adventure series from Sam Raimi.

Wow, "syndicated adventure series." Whatever happened to all of those cheesy syndicated adventure shows that used to dot the television landscape? There used to be dozens of them on the weekends and late at night. Sitcoms too. There aren't too many of them anymore, replaced by reality, home improvement, court shows, and talk shows, or not replaced at all.

New Amsterdam: Honor

by Paul Goebel, posted Mar 18th 2008 7:35AM

Alexie Gilmore(S01E04) I was never a fan of the other shows like New Amsterdam. Highlander, Forever Knight and shows of that kind never really appealed to me. Which is why it's so puzzling that I enjoy this show. Case in point...since our dreams are a manifestation of the way our subconscious reacts to our life experiences, a dude who has been alive for over 400 years must have some pretty crazy-ass dreams. That's kind of cool to me.

When this show premiered, I wondered if there was ever going to be some real New York style crimes featured. I guess I have my answer.

TV continues uninterrupted in comic books

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 29th 2007 1:06PM

BSG ComicWhat are you going to do? The Office, How I Met Your Mother, and even new shows like Pushing Daisies and Chuck are either out of fresh episodes or quickly running out. Well, you don't need to spend the "strike season" curled up in the corner of your bedroom crying through a pile of TV Guides, remembering the good old days when you didn't already know what was going to happen this week on House.

Television is alive and well, and even growing ... just somewhere else. Want to know what happened to Jack Bauer before Season One of 24? How about Buffy and the Scooby Gang after the series finale of Buffy the Vampire Slayer? More and more shows are expanding their horizons by telling prequels, sequels and even in-between-quels in comic books, or graphic novels.

Adrian Paul returns in new Highlander TV movie

by Richard Keller, posted Aug 7th 2007 1:02PM

Adrian Paul returns as Duncan Macleod in a new Highlander TV movieGood news, Highlander-heads! According to the Adrian Paul Newswire a new Highlander movie is coming to the Sci-Fi Channel in September. Named Highlander: The Source, it will feature the return of actor Adrian Paul as the immortal Duncan Macleod.

In this movie, the 5th since the original Highlander franchise began in 1986, Duncan goes on a quest with a number of immortal and mortal friends to find the origin of the first immortal and The Source of immortality. It seems to be set in the future because, as the plot summary says, we find Macleod roaming a crumbling city as the world falls into chaos. Then again, he could be walking the streets of Camden, New Jersey for all we know.

Highlander: The Source will premiere on the Sci-Fi Channel on September 15th at 9 pm, and be re-broadcast on September 20th at the same time.

Ian Richardson dead at 72

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 11th 2007 3:14PM

Ian RichardsonSometimes I wonder if what we remember a deceased actor for is the thing that actor would want to be remembered for the most.

British actor Ian Richardson played corrupt politician Francis Urquhart in three mini-series: House of Cards, To Play The King, and The Final Cut, and had a long career starring in such movies as Brazil, The Winslow Boy, Dark City, As You Like It, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Canterbuy Tales, and The Fourth Protocol, but TV audiences might know him best as the guy who pulls up in the limo and asks "Do you have any Grey Poupon?"

Richardson was also an acclaimed stage actor and appeared on other TV shows, including the miniseries Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Ike, and the series Highlander. He died in England on Friday.

The Immortal coming to DVD in February

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 24th 2006 3:34PM

The ImmortalWhen I first read this I thought it was series from the late 60s/early 70s, about race car driver Ben Richards, who has a rare blood disorder that make him immortal. But don't get too excited: it's actually the Lorenzo Lamas show from 2000, which sounds a lot like Highlander.

Um, how come I've never heard of this show? I watch a lot of TV and I like a lot of the syndicated action stuff, but this show doesn't ring a bell at all. Maybe I blocked it out of my memory because Lorenzo Lamas was in it. Anyway, the 22 episode set is coming in Feburary.
