ER will be returning April 10 with all new episodes! I have the upcoming episodes titles and some spoilers. This is to go along with the news- in case you missed it- that ER was picked up for a final- yes this will be the 15th and final season! The producers and network are promising some old favorites will be returning and some new stars joining the show to bring us a really great final season. I will post more news as it becomes available on season 15. One thing- we have been told by NBC at their upfronts that the new season which will be a full 22 episodes will run without repeats starting in the fall. I really enjoyed the episode earlier this winter with the return of Jeanie Brulet played by Gloria Rubens. I was watching some of my season 1 dvds of Friends last night and reminiscing for the good old 90s Thursdays on NBC.

Back to season 14! TV Guide scan with the latest ER update

We have titles for 4 remaining episode:

Stargate SG-1 The Ark of Truth – My Thoughts March 19, 2008

Last week I posted the many previews and clips available online to get you excited about the new SG-1 movie The Ark of Truth.

This is what the opening menu looks like- I recommend watching the prelude if you haven’t recently watched seasons 9 & 10

My Thoughts

Today I want to share my thoughts on the film- this won’t be an extensive review or summary – I don’t want to give too much away so you can enjoy if for yourself.

I came to SG-1 a little late- I had watched episodes periodically throughout the series , watched SGA from its premiere and always loved the original Stargate movie. I got the entire first 9 seasons on DVD two years ago for Christmas and started watching them in the fall of 2007. I made my way to season 10 in March and was nearly done when the new SG-1 movie The Ark of Truth came out. For me it was a seamless transition from the end of the series as I had no real gap or time without SG-1 in my viewing history. I think many sci-fi fans do this- I became an obsessive Smallville fan after watching the first five seasons in about 2 weeks – total immersion tends to make solid fans.

This said- I have enjoyed Stargate far more than I ever liked Star Trek. I think for me the whole communist/socialist thing against making money in the universe of the Federation never quite sat right with my capitalistic heart. Stargate has always been about helping others find freedom, lead them on a path of self-governance and pull them away from the clutches of races of false gods who enslave them. The first enemies the SG-1 team took on were the mighty Go’Auld. These self-serving parasites with an unquenchable thirst for power were handily taken down eventually but then other enemies arose. The replicators- insidious self-replicating machines took powerful ancient technology to eradicate but they were machines and thus did have weaknesses. When Daniel and Vala inadvertently opened the door to the Ori Galaxy they encountered what has to be one of the most frightening villainous races to grace the annals of science fiction. Using religion and demanding complete devotion from their followers these beings not of light and goodness but fire and brimstone reign over their galaxy with fear in order to sap the energy from their followers to expand their own power. Think really scary demons….. The way the producers portrayed them on SG-1 they were so evil especially because they showed outwardly initially a face of kindness and good thoughts and an offer of salvation- lying about their true nature and hiding it from their followers.

In season 10 there is a quest to find and build a special weapon that can supposedly kill them- but of course the battle is not over. At the beginning of The Ark of Truth the Ori armies and their ships helmed by their officers and the priors who wield staffs of power are out to take over our galaxy. Meanwhile Vala’s Ori spawned daughter Adria had ascended meaning she is now an Ori and a force to worry about as well.

Our heroes take on a quest- but it is not an easy one. There are political roadblocks by the pesky IOA ( International Oversight Administration) and nobody is certain that this new artifact the team seeks will really work or that it exists. The trip takes us into the heart of the Ori galaxy and the action, scenery and story are big, bold, loud and full of danger including lots of fights and explosions. Stargate never lacks for dramatic explosions! Some of the best footage is with Christopher Judge as he gets the big hero location shoot in the Canadian mountains. Watch the last episode of season 10 to find out why Teal’c has grey hair.

See I told you I wouldn’t give the story away! I really enjoyed the movie and it felt like a big two part SG-1 cliffhanger all in one package with bigger effects and a bigger stage than even a cliffhanger.

I give the movie a solid 9 out 10- a small guest shot with Jack O’Neill would have pushed it to a 9.5 but alas Jack is absent in this one though Beau Bridges as General Landry is present.

BONUS FEATURES:

You must must must watch the footage with Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, Ben Browder, the producers and Gary Jones at Comic Con. Our trio is so funny! They give some hints and some peeks at the next SG-1 film coming in July,2008 which is SG-1 Continuum. They talk about who went to the arctic to film it and who did not.

The behind the scenes making of stuff is great too- my clips ( see previous blog post) show the stunt guys using this new goop that allows them to set people on fire. That is included but there are more videos with the stars and crew talking about the movie as well.

You can choose to watch it with the Prologue or not- if you haven’t seen all of the episodes recently- watch it. They manage to give a neat summary of the Ori storyline from seasons 9 and 10 bringing you right to the present time when the movie is set. The movie is between the end of SG-1 and the beginning of SGA season 4 if you want to make sure you keep your timelines straight for viewing purposes.

I capped a few images from the brief spoiler footage shown before the movie begins that shows shooting Continuum in the arctic with Ben Browder and Amanda Tapping. Apparently temps were as low as -50 degrees F while they were shooting- BRRRR!

312 Jus in Bello SNEAK PEEK! February 17, 2008

Two new clips for the upcoming episode of Supernatural- Jus in Bello!

See my previous posts for more spoilers for this upcoming episode. This was originally going to be episode 11 then the producers decided it made a better mid-season finale so it got switched with Mystery Spot- so if previous posts have different episode numbers- this is why.

312 Jus in Bello Supernatural SPOILER! February 15, 2008


From Entertainment Weekly Feb 22, 2008 this week’s issue:

“You like zombie movies, right? Because Supernatural ends this round of episodes by cribbing from every trapped-with-the-undead-coming-to-eat-our-brains script ever written- not that that’s a bad thing. Intrepid Agent Henricksen (C. Malik Whitfield) thinks Sam ( Jared Padalecki) and Dean ( Jensen Ackles) are Satan-loving serial killers, so he jails them at a sheriff’s station. Then what looks like the smoke monster from Lost turns the town into demon-zombie hybrids, it doesn’t take a lot of brains to predict the rest, but….mmmm,brrrrrrrrains.”B
