Smallville Just May Get a Season 10

 

“I think creatively, we’ve been happy with the show. And it’s gotten to the point where Friday nights have improved for us, so it looks good. But we don’t know, because it’s really too early. It’s January and we don’t have to make these decisions until May. But it’s increased our adult 18-34 and it certainly has increased our men 18-34 on Friday nights. Creatively, I think it’s been in a good place. I think Tom [Welling]’s still having a good time with it. I think he’s enthusiastic about it. So, we’ll see where we are a few months from now.”

 

She went to say: “Clearly, we’re going to have a great season finale, as we would for any year, and whether or not it will be a show finale, we don’t know yet. We haven’t really talked about it, because they’re not that far along yet in the storylines, but I think it will be a good season finale for sure. And if the show doesn’t come back, I think it will be a sort of really last minute decision, because either development [for new series] was great or the show wasn’t doing as well on Friday nights. But we still have a whole half a season to go before we have to determine that.”

White House Stands Down to LOST

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says that he doesn’t foresee a scenario in which President Obama’s State of the Union address will fall on February 2nd. He also added that the date for the address will be announced very soon. As for the mentioning of the health-care package, that seems unlikely in the near future as the House an Senate can’t agree on a plan.

Upon hearing the news, “Lost” producer updated with his Twitter account saying: “OBAMA BACKED DOWN!!!! Groundhog Day is OURS!!!!!!! (God Bless America).

‘Teen Wolf’ TV Series Cast and Plot

The original which starred Michael J. Fox as a high school student who discovers he is a werewolf, is a dramatic thriller with a buddy-comedy element at the center and a romantic plot line.

The TV series will revolve around Scott McCall (Posey), a dorky high-school student who gets a rush of new powers, including the ability to attract girls, after a wolf attack.

O’Brien will play Scott’s best friend who is initially dismissive of Scott’s theory that he was bitten by a wolf but then begins research on human-werewolf transformation. Reed will play a sweet new girl at school who is immediately smitten with Scott. Hoechlin will play a handsome local boy who in fact is a vicious and predatory werewolf capable of great harm.

John Barrowman Confirms New Torchwood Season

 

With the dramatic endings of season three as well as 'Children of Earth,'  which aired on BBC America back in the spring in which we lost several Torchwood members, it's unclear exactly how Davies is going to revive the Torchwood organization. Captain Jack Harkness (Barrowman) himself had a dramatic departure, so it's pretty much a given that there will be a very dramatic return.

No official production date has been set for the return of the series, but creator Russell T Davies previously indicated he expected it to get started early in 2010.

Barrowman also told the programme that there were no current plans for Captain Jack Harkness to encounter the 11th Doctor, played by Matt Smith, who takes over the title role in Doctor Who from David Tennant in the New Year's Day special, The End of Time, Part 2.

 

 

Why Genre Shows are Dying! Part 1

 

First off Hinman failed to mention any show that is on the SyFy Channel. Why is that Mikey? I'm starting to wonder about you boy. Now on with my rant on the subject at hand. Knight Rider, any true Sci-Fi fan knew that this show was doomed from the first 10 minutes of the pilot, I knuckled down and watched 4 episodes even though it made me want to puke my guts out in the new KIT the whole time I was watching, till I just couldn't take anymore. Pushing Daisies was a cute show and I watched it for the whole first season, but cuteness wears out quick, babies are cute too, but just think about one with a real humdinger of a stinky diaper, enough said there. By year two I would catch it at some point, some times months after the episode aired on the DVR. As for TSCC, season one was awesome, it was kicking much ass up to the season two premier,  and it was downhill from then on out, bad acting, bad storylines, even the way they would put the scenes together just sucked. 

 

 

Fox's "Dollhouse," a sci-fi show that was suppose to be geared for the female gender. Ummm, how did that work out, it failed just as I knew it would. No offense intended ladies, but there just aren't enough true sci-fi fans of the fairer sex to sustain a TV series on the public air waves at this time. For most of us guys it just turned our stomachs inside out. I have a strong feeling that the up coming SyFy Channel's "Battlestar Galactica" spinoff series "Caprica" will turn out the same way as Dollhouse.  

We also lost two series that was on the ABC Family Channel that very few talk about  when addressing  Genre ratings, the sad part is they were both good series. "Kyle XY" and  "The Middleman" where both excellent shows and in my opinion if they where on ABC's public air channels they would have survived and been here today gearing for a new season. We also lost "Stargate Atlantis" that was on none other than the SyFy Channel, not many talking about it either. The biggest problem with Atlantis was the constant change in Characters, also by the third season the storylines was getting very dull. And last but not least of shows we lost was the USA Networks "4400" series. Great show overall, but issues with some of the actors and storylines going dry helped lead this show to it demise.

As for existing shows, the CW's "Smallville" was moved from it's Thursday night slot to Friday night, so they could make room for another show geared for the ladies called the "Vampire Diaries." Smallville took a big hit in the ratings due to the move but it now seems the show ratings are climbing back up and it's fair to say that we will get at least one more season of Smallville, and yes the show is kicking more ass than normal so make sure to tune in, no matter what time slot it's in. As for Vampire Diaries, it's ratings are good, but it is not no where as popular as Smallville was when it was in that time slot, and the new series has hurt "Supernatural" in the ratings. As for Supernatural, if any of you have been watching lately can see that even the Winchester boy's are growing tired of the series and I suspect we will being the departure of Sam and Dean at the end of this season even if the series is renewed, which I doubt will happen.

Now for the big dogs. "Lost" is fixen to start it's finale season. Last season the episodes had gotten better than the two previous seasons, but it was to late, most folks had already moved on and wasn't willing to give LOST another chance. Heroes, will more than likely be renewed for a new season and yes the episodes have gotten better but I think it's to late and like LOST, the viewers they lost won't give Heroes a another chance and it's ratings will never be as high as they were before."V", to be honest it's to early for me to predict, but so far this new series is on the right track and I give it a A rating in all areas. "Flash Forward" I feel will flash out by the end of it's first season.

Tune in tomorrow and I'll cover more on TV series not mentioned in this article and give you the real scoop on whats wrong with most of the genre shows today and why they are dying. Till then just remember "It's all about the Sci-Fi Baby!!"

Dollhouse gets the Axe!

 
Fox is currently producing the show's 11th episode of the season; and production has not yet halted, which means "Dollhouse" is expected to finish up its 13-episode order. Fox has confirmed that all 13 episodes will air on the network, with the 13th serving as the series finale.

"Official word from Fox: 'We will air all 13 episodes and this gives Joss the opportunity to end in a significant way'," said Variety's Michael Schneider via Twitter.

I hate it for Joss Whedon but he should have had a more active role in the series than just slapping his name on it. And I really hate that it looks like Summer Glau is becoming a jinx to any TV series that she gets involved with. I like Summer, she has talent and is a icon to most of us SciFi fans.

 
As for Eliza Dushku I hope she stays far away from future SciFi and Fantasy TV series and movies. Here is a hint Eliza, go do porn honey then we might watch something else that your in.
