Cass is seconded. Dorian's in the movie because he's gimmicky and superhero-like.

Also, FYI, the Aquaman TV series got canned, without the pilot even being shown to the public.

That's good!

Look, I'm telling you all to go petition for Global Frequency to get a second chance.

It's in the hands of the public now -- hint hint.

Jericho is much anticipated.  If you would like to see Jericho, almost scene for scene, I suggest you put Testament on your queue.  Except Testament is pitiful, 80's bullshit...and they all die.  The way Jericho has borrowed those characters and even the situations listed there is shameless and painful.


Did I miss a thread somewhere...?  What did you all think of the pilot?

I'm going to reverse my opinion quoted above.  We have a nice crew of people who have to learn to get along, it's not a story about radiation death (instead we get the lovely hint of chaos outside that may come to infect Jericho social meltdown style) and I'm pleased to know that there were so many fucking commercials the hour long pilot breaks down to 36 minutes. 

Let me say that again -- an hour long show is actually 36 minutes now because of the commercials.  That's a new record.  We were holding steady at 42 for awhile.  So, a year from now, will an hour long show actually be 10 minutes long? 

(It's also insane, flag-waving propaganda.  But the girl's are cute and the mayor is played by the guy who plays the evil, demented Hearst in Deadwood, so it's hard to see him as the patriot good guy he's supposed to be.)

That's fucking ridiculous. No wonder TiVo has taken over.

You mean P2P?

I'm going to go down to Blockbuster and pay $5 for my fix of Scrubs instead of waiting two days for NetFlix to deliver my fix.

Where are you seeing these fucking pilots?

The ads for Jericho look great. Mrs. RC have put it on our short list of new shows to check out.

After seeing the Aquaman pilot, I see how it could be good. And it could be good if Miles Millar and Alfred Gough never touch the DC universe ever fucking again.

Except for Aquaman, they were all aired, man. 

But where am I seeing them?  I'm downloading them.  Here's Jericho:

Right now I'm beside myself to learn that the first three episodes of the new Stargate Atlantis season are on the net.  Jesus.

* “HEROES” (ABC): People all over the world begin to discover that they have super-powers.


Got my hands on the pilot episode... But tied up by the fact that the Stargate twins have been airing their new seasons for a month without my knowledge.  So I'll get this pilot in me ASAP and report back.  So far, I'm high-spirited after Jericho.

Heroes pilot is out? HOLY SHIT I gotta get my hands on that. That's the only series I've been interested in.
