So next year sees the return and remake of the amazing TV Series ‘V’ with non other than Morena Baccarin as the sexy alien leader. It’s good to see Morena doing so well after originally shooting to global fame through Joss Whedon’s Firefly. I’m just hoping the aliens dress just as sexy as they did LOL (such a guy!). Of course there’s no news on a second Firefly movie as yet, but the Brown Coats among us I’m sure live in hope. That series brought several people to the fore. As Joss has always had an awesome eye for future talent. He brought us the likes of Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alyson Hannigan and Angel star and name sake David Boreanaz. This before we even start on such wonderful people as Summer Glau and the ever sharp witted Jewel Staite. All of whom have gone on to bigger and better things.
Smallville is still running and on its way back to our screens, a show that is oddly amazing with a small group of awesome females in it.
This brings me to another subject
The Women of Sci-Fi Calendar…
Now, it’s been a while since actors and best buddies Chris Judge and Michael Shanks convinced Michael’s wife, actress Lexa Doig to partake of a great idea… So back in 2007, The Women of Sci-Fi Calendar was born. But what of it now?! Well the ladies of Smallville, Stargate, Atlantis and the brilliant Andromeda were in it – yet, internet searches reveal little these days.
My favourite programme of late ‘Life’ is sure to return and an all new Stargate show ‘Stargate Universe’ is due to air later this year – which Joseph Mallozzi seems forever excited about… But let’s not forget the next Stargate movies that will start production at some point in the next few months.
Iron Man two has been in production for a while and my guess is that it will be as least as good as the last one.
I haven’t heard anything about the show ‘The Mentalist’, but then, I’ve not really looked. I like the show, but there is something missing, maybe a little more personal interaction is needed, or the Jane character needs to have little more lavish life style – something, anything more than what there is. The show is brilliant because you feel you’ve only been sitting down 5 mins by the time the show ends.
NCIS… I’m not sure what to make of it, it’s been great, funny and generally entertaining – but there are aspects that need addressing with the characters and, well, I don’t know – again, it’s either lost something or it’s always been missing – if nothing else it’s getting a little tired. I was really hoping that Torri Higginson was going to become part of the permanent cast. Torri is one of a handful of actresses I think have yet to given an effective vehicle to show off their best and true individual brilliance, Lexa Doig, Kate Hewlett are two more – but I guess it also comes down to getting the right part. But one actress I’m shocked that we don’t see much of is Laura Bertram.
