'Supernatural' Season 7, Episode 3 Recap

['Supernatural' - 'The Girl Next Door']

'The Girl Next Door' left me gobsmacked, but for all the wrong reasons.

I'm going to spend most of this review writing about one scene that came late in the episode. It neatly encapsulated a lot of what was wrong with not just this episode, but many other things as well.

If you're looking for a lot of commentary on Jensen Ackles' competent directing or details like the Biggerson's sign and things like that, you're not going to get it this time around.

Gone Too Soon: Wonderfalls

'Wonderfalls'
After bringing us the quirky death dramedy 'Dead Like Me,' and just before the resurrection dramedy 'Pushing Daisies,' Bryan Fuller co-created, along with Todd Holland ('Sons of Tucson'), another odd little show for FOX. 'Wonderfalls' premiered in March 2004; the tale of a young woman instructed by animal-shaped figurines to help people in need.

Much like his other shows, the whole atmosphere and presentation of 'Wonderfalls' was tailored to create a magical world just outside our own. Gritty realism certainly wasn't the goal.

Unfortunately, a serious lack of network patience led to 'Wonderfalls' getting canceled after airing only four critically acclaimed episodes out of thirteen produced. But those four hours left an indelible mark on the loyal viewers who did find it, and the series message of hope resonates as powerfully today as it did then.

Q&A: 'Firefly' star Jewel Staite on Reavers, 'V', and Clooney

by Stephanie Earp, posted Mar 23rd 2010 11:34PM


Being a cast member of Joss Whedon's space western 'Firefly' pretty much means you have a standing invitation to Wizard World Toronto Comic Con. Jewel Staite, who played tomboy Kaylee Frye, has RSVP'ed for the Toronto event, from March 26 - 28.

This gave us a great excuse to find out how she feels about being her own doppelganger, suspecting her bridesmaid Morena Baccarin of eating people, and playing video games on the big screen.

Gone Too Soon: Firefly

Firefly
When I first started exploring this project, there were a few shows that I knew were going to be important to hit. This is the first of those. Firefly was Joss Whedon's sci-fi western series. The show mustered disappointing ratings in its short eleven-episode run on FOX.

Since then it's gone on to near mythic cult status. There was such an outcry of support from its loyalists, the Browncoats, over its cancellation that the producers made a feature film sequel. That movie, Serenity, answered a lot of questions about the future fate of the cast. Unfortunately, like the television series, it couldn't find quite enough people to show up and tune in to warrant a sequel. Nevertheless, the few morsels of Firefly we did get are enough to prove that this is one of the most innovative and enjoyable series ever to hit the airwaves.

Jane After Dark: Firefly

by Jane Boursaw, posted May 24th 2009 7:10PM
FireflyI'm almost to the end of Firefly, my Jane After Dark readers' choice for this week. I really love this series, from the quirky characters to the general theme of a band of renegades burgling their way through the universe.

But even though it's set 500 years in the future, Firefly isn't your typical sci-fi space series that includes all manner of aliens and weird creatures. They're on a spaceship, and yet they rob trains. How cool is that?! It's like Alias Smith and Jones meets Babylon 5.

As with the other Whedon shows I've watched – Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel – the stories are fun and deep and fanciful (yes, I said fanciful), but it's the characters and their interactions that make the shows.

Stargate Atlantis Panel - Comic-Con Report

Joe Flanigan of Stargate Atlantis

When it comes to science fiction conventions you can always tell the difference between those panelists who are newbies and those who are veterans. As soon as the panelists for Stargate Atlantis took their seats you could tell that they were all seasoned veterans of the convention universe. They were relaxed, had fun with each other, and had fun with the audience. Combine those elements together and it makes for an entertaining hour and gives you a sense that they are talking to you...despite the 4000 other people in the hall.

There weren't many new bits of information that came from this panel that hadn't already been mentioned during the Robert Picardo phone conference a few weeks ago. Yet, there were still some interesting pieces of information about the stars, the writers, and some behind the scenes items. You can read some of these after the jump.

Stargate Atlantis: First Strike (season finale)

(S03E20) "I'm just saying... They're a cool team... and we're a cool team..."

This week Atlantis brought out what I consider to be a classic season finale. By the end of the show there are questions about who is going to live, the survival of the city, and an impending war with the replicators. As long as they don't kick off season four with Shepard stepping out of a steamy shower, or waking up next to Suzanne Pleshette, things are looking very good for the future of Atlantis.

Stargate Atlantis Even though the Season 3 finale of the Sci Fi hit show Stargate Atlantis airs only in two weeks, cast and crew are already preparing Season 4. Writers have almost half the season written up, episodes are getting shot, and casting directors are working around the clock to find guest stars for the new season. Actually, the latter even found a new show regular in the person of Firefly's Jewel Staite.

Spoilers about Staite's character and Season 4 after the jump.
