As others have noted, this new spec script could play as a sequel to his hit show Alias. That show did end with Sydney and Michael married with two kids being asked to return to service. Sadly, I think Jennifer Garner would consider that a backwards step in her career no matter how much she owes Abrams. Perhaps she could make a cameo?
It's interesting that the television spinoff of Mr. & Mrs. Smith didn't last long and had the very same premise. But then, Abrams wasn't behind that one.
So at this year's Lost Comic-Con panel, which will be the show's last, Damon and Carlton pulled out the final scene to get that chip off of their shoulders: Two pieces of paper they taunted the audience to steal. Although it won't be easy for anyone to get their hands on those pages.
You'll have to watch the panel video to see why, after the jump.

If you watched V, you know my reference, and it was fun when the askers got it too.
Beyond lizard babies, lovable aliens who went on to play Freddie Kreuger (Robert Englund) and heroines imported from The Greatest American Hero (Faye Grant) -- I swear, I remember all of this; I didn't even look it up! -- V was so unique and addicting that if you haven't seen it, I suggest getting that DVD release tout de suite.
While I can't say much about Cane, I can say that I was mighty disappointed in Moonlight. I'm a big fan of Jason Dohring from Veronica Mars, but I found him horribly miscast as "the oldest vampire in LA" (or maybe he'll always be Logan Echolls to me).
If you read this blog on a frequent basis, you know a few of us are fans of TV writer and blogger Ken Levine. The man has written for The Simpsons, MASH, Cheers, Everybody Loves Raymond, Wings, Dharma and Greg and many other popular and enduring series.
In a recent post, Levine explains how to write for a medical series that uses a lot of jargon: ask a doctor.
Joel told you not too long ago that a second X-Files feature film was most likely going to happen. Now comes word from David Duchovny himself that the film is indeed going ahead and that co-star Gillian Anderson is attached, as well.
Most of what Joel mentioned still appears to be true: the film, written by X-Files creator Chris Carter, will be a standalone story and could possibly hit theaters sometime in summer 2008. Duchovny says he hasn't seen the script, and 20th Century Fox, the studio that owns The X-Files, has not confirmed the project just yet.
Last November, Brett told you that Michael Cera (Arrested Development) would be starring in a new Web series with his pal, actor Clark Duke. The series would be called The Good Life, and it would be available for viewing on the CBS innertube broadband site.
The script for the new CBS comedy pilot I'm in Hell found its way onto this thread on A Special Thing dot com, and I decided to take a gander.
As mentioned before, the series focuses on an affluent jerk played by Jason Biggs who dies in a car crash and is sent to Hell on Earth (which to him is Akron, OH). The series also stars David Cross as the devil who makes sure Biggs' life is sufficiently cruddy.
I'm too young to have watched The Six Million Dollar Man, and the only reason I'm even remotely familiar with The Fall Guy and The Big Valley is because my father would sometimes watch those shows (The Big Valley was in syndication when I was younger). So Me & Lee, a new pilot for FOX in which Lee Majors helps an injured man (played by Jamie Kennedy) by sprucing him up with a new bionic body a la the Six Million Dollar Man, did not catch my attention because of Majors' involvement, it caught my attention because Paul Dinello, co-creator and co-star of one of my favorite shows of all time (Strangers with Candy) was attached to direct the pilot.
One enterprising user tried to create a solution using Yahoo! Pipes, but that didn't really work out. Now he's written a Greasemonkey script for Firefox. It doesn't automatically schedule recordings, but it does make it easier to cross reference your Netflix queue and your TiVo recordings.
Basically the script scans the titles of movies in your queue and then searches the TiVo web site. If there's a match, a little link to the TiVo search results shows up on your Netflix page. Apparently it takes a while to perform the search, so it takes some time for the links to load.
Check it out here (crank it up because the audio is super low).
I'm not sure why 30 Rock isn't a hit. Maybe people are turned off by Tina Fey or Alec Baldwin? I think it's been hilarious, with some wicked one-liners that mostly come from Baldwin. Hopefully its new time slot at 9:30 on Thursdays after Scrubs will help boost its viewership a bit so we can get a full season.
This pilot order follows a similar order by Fox for a series called NSA Innocent, about a typical citizen who finds himself caught up in the world of espionage.
