New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 29th 2009 6:00PM
Swiss Family Robinson DVD coverHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I've been trying to figure out which Swiss Family Robinson is being released this week. It's not the 1960 movie with James MacArthur, and it's not the 1975 series that starred Martin Milner, Helen Hunt, Willie Aames, and Cameron Mitchell. It's at 1976 series from Canada. Not sure if I've ever seen that.

Another blast from the TV past: Parker Lewis Can't Lose!

  • Eastbound & Down - Season 1
  • Entourage - Season 5
  • Eureka - Season 3
  • The IT Crowd - Season 2

Battlestar, Stargate cast members heading to Warehouse 13

by Mike Moody, posted May 29th 2009 12:03PM
battlestar galactica michael hogan, tricia helfer, warehouse 13With Battlestar Galactica and The Sarah Connor Chronicles now gone, I'll be looking to Warehouse 13 for my summer sci-fi fix. Thankfully, it looks like a pretty cool show. I like the concept, and I'm digging the Whedonesque vibe of the Sci Fi Channel's latest preview clip and the show's official trailer.

Now I have another reason to tune in. Actually, I have four more reasons. The show will be loaded with great geek-friendly guest stars, including BSG's Michael Hogan, Tricia Helfer and Whdeonverse vet Mark Sheppard. Stargate Atlantis alum Joe Flanigan will also appear on the show.

Stargate vets Anderson and Shanks to appear in Universe

by Mike Moody, posted Apr 8th 2009 7:01PM
stargate universe richard dean andersonSyFy's Stargate Universe will kick off with help from two familiar faces this fall. Richard Dean Anderson and Michael Shanks will reprise their Stargate: SG-1 roles in the series premiere of Universe, which is billed as a darker, character driven sci-fi show.

Shanks' appearance will be a one-time cameo, according to consulting producer Joseph Mallozzi. Anderson, however, will make multiple guest appearances in Universe in addition to showing up in the two-hour premiere. The actor said he would make "slim appearances" in the first "half dozen" episodes or so.

Here's what we know about the Stargate Atlantis series finale - VIDEO

by Mike Moody, posted Jan 6th 2009 10:03AM


The Wraith attack Earth, a major character may or may not bite it, and it's frakkin' awesome.

Well, it's pretty good for something reportedly produced in a rush. According to Gateworld, the producers of Stargate Atlantis learned about the show's cancellation during the shooting of "Identity," the third-to-last episode of the current season. They were forced to scrap ideas for a sixth season and make this Friday's season ender, "Enemy at the Gate," the series finale.

Clips and moderate spoilers after the jump.

On the 5th day of Festivus, TV gave to me...

... five canceled shows.

Some shows, like critical darlings The Shield and Battlestar Galactica, are allowed to end gracefully; major story arcs are wrapped up and fans are left satisfied. Others are yanked from network schedules like unsightly weeds from a rose garden.

The networks yanked a number of shows off the air this season. Most of them, like The Ex List, probably deserved the axe, but there were four that deserved more time to develop an audience and one that I'm really gonna miss. In no particular order, they are:

Trainspotting's Carlyle to kick Stargate in its biscuit-arse

by Mike Moody, posted Dec 15th 2008 8:28AM
robert carlyle 24 stargate universeRobert Carlyle is a fine actor with an impressive resume (The Full Monty, 28 Weeks Later, 24: Redemption to name a few), but he'll always be the hard-drinking, C-word screaming, Ewan McGregor-slapping Begbie from Trainspotting to me. Which is why it comes as a surprise that he's been cast as the lead in the next Stargate series, Stargate Universe.

Carlyle will play Dr. David Rush, leader of a group of scientists and civilians trapped on a ship traveling through space. Word is that Dr. Rush, charged with finding a way to return his crew home, might not be the nice guy everyone thinks he is.

What Mike is thankful for

Battlestar Galactica Starbuck Sackhoff
No one's watching Terminator, the Dollhouse problems persist, and too many of my favorite shows are on hiatus until next year. Grrr! Argh! Still, I love TV, and now's the time to look on the bright side and give thanks for all the good stuff I've watched this season.

This year, I'm thankful for:

Battlestar GalacticaThis last season has been challenging but thrilling to watch. Actually, that about sums up the entire run of the series. I'm confident that the final eps will be as good as what came before.

Netfilx Watch Instantly for Mac – I'm catching up with Doctor Who, Dead Like Me, and revisiting old eps of Joy Mohr's Action. I've never been so happy to be a beta tester.

Dave Foley and Bill Nye visit Stargate Atlantis this week

Dave Foley David Hewlett Stargate AtlantisDo you know what a dilithium crystal is? Ever use the term "cosplay" when discussing your weekend plans? Own more than two non-Star Wars action figures? If you answered "Affirmative!" to any of these questions, then you'll be staying home this Friday night, because you're a nerd. It's cool. That means you'll be able to catch this week's ep of Stargate Atlantis, with guest stars Dave Foley, Bill Nye the Science Guy and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. All nerds, by the way.

Kids in the Hall vet Foley plays a professional rival of Dr. McKay (David Hewlett), who invents an anti-global warming device that, instead of ending global warming, almost kills everybody at a swanky party, including Nye and DeGrasse Tyson. Not intrigued? Gateworld says there might be a scene with Jewel Staite stuck in a giant freezer. I know. It's a good show.
