I have to admit that I was never a massive fan of the Superman films. I always found the character too bland. The films never drew me in like they did so many others and I always thought the series was just really one-dimensional and unintentionally goofy. Give me Spider-Man, with his knowing wise cracks, any day of the week.
The first interaction that I had with the character was through a Saturday morning TV show called Live & Kicking, which would regularly show episodes of the Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher show: Lois & Clark – The New Adventures of Superman. This was a show that I loved, as it didn’t focus on the character of Superman but on his earth alter ego, Clark Kent. Yes, it was cheesy and predictable and yes, it was a bit ridiculous but, I think that was why my young mind took to it. Also Teri Hatcher was ridiculously attractive. »

ABC's upfront presentation has already produced news about "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," most notably that the show is going to be great. Access Hollywood and IGN caught up with actors Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson), Ming-Na Wen (Agent May) and Elizabeth Henstridge (Agent Simmons), as well as producer Jeffrey Bell ("Angel"). The actors were all tight-lipped about the series, of course, but the video is still worth watching if only to see just how excited these actors are to enlist with S.H.I.E.L.D. Ming-Na's even busted out her boxing equipment!

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a same-sex marriage supporter!
“If anybody wants to get married, go ahead," the 46-year-old actor, who will next be seen in the VH1 series "Hit The Floor," said. On a more serious note, he added, "I have a lot of gay friends ... I can't understand why it's an issue. For me, it's a non-issue."
Cain, who played a gay character opposite Zach Braff and Andrew Keegan in 2000's "The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy," is a registered Republican who reportedly backed Rick Perry and eventually Mitt Romney in the 2012 U.S. presidential election.

Remember Hercules, Xena: Warrior Princess and Dr Quinn Medicine Woman?
Okay, well maybe not so much the last one. But those first two, they had some overwhelmingly corny opening credits - as did most 90s light entertainment fare (looking at you, The New Adventures of Superman).
In a way, the HBO adaptation of George R.R. Martin's fantasy saga, A Song of Ice and Fire - Game of Thrones - shares a spiritual heart with those early programmes. But only like how the Dothraki share hearts. As in, cut them out of a horse and eat them for a baby shower.
It makes the following mock-up video both nostalgic and rather funny...a mid-90s reimagining of Game of Thrones' opening credits, VHS grain and all:

A new supernatural horror film from Spotlight Pictures, The Appearing, showed up on our radar today; and we have all sorts of goodies to share: a sales trailer, some artwork, and a rather lengthy synopsis. Check it all out!
The Appearing, which is now in post-production, was directed by Daric Gates and stars Dean Cain, Will Wallace, Don Swayze, and Quinton Aaron. Based on true events, it is said to be in the vein of Hollywood blockbusters like The Possession and Fallen.

Michael takes a job in the sheriff’s office, thinking not much will happen in such a quiet town. However, on his first day of duty, Michael is asked to »

Remember that time when Superman caught a Kryptonian virus on Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman? And he spent practically the whole episode laid out on the couch, barely conscious? And all he could manage to do was sort of thrash his head about and moan a bit? Having spent the entirety of this past week laid out at home with what I have not-so-fondly dubbed “The Winter Plague,” I suspect I know just how he felt.
I also suspect that when it comes to the Winter Plague, I have not been very heroic. Or at least that’s what it seems like when looking back at my pathetic tweets over the past week (tweeting being about all I’ve had the energy to do, since I can do it from my phone, while lying down in bed). But I guess I could look at the whole matter in another way. »
