Star Trek Continues continues with E06: “Come Not Between the Dragons”

Hooray!

I don’t recall ever hearing an Australian accent on the U.S.S. Enterprise, which you would expect if crew members are hailing from all over planet Earth. So that’s a nice touch. And of course that Aussie crew member here is played by Farscape’s Gigi Edgley, for that extra geek kick.

Tweeks: Hollywood Sci-Fi Museum

  • Comicmix
Last summer at San Diego Comic Con, we got to sit on the bridge of the Enterprise and learn a little bit about the concept for the Hollywood Science Fiction Museum. Just in the beginning stages, it sounded pretty cool, but when we caught up with the Huston Huddleston the museum’s founder at WonderCon to talk about the progress we were blown away.

Set to open later this year at an existing Los Angeles museum, the Hollywood Sci-Fi Museum has plans to open its own location eventually. This location will feature a space ship restaurant, as well as a museum that will house a hall of cars, a hall of space ships, a hall of robots, and a ginormous store where you can buy everything from Harry Potter wands to Sonic Screwdrivers. It will also have sections for all the movies and shows in the genre. And there will

“New Girl” Adds Damon Wayans Jr. to the Apartment Lease, Chris Colfer Writes Tonight’s “Glee” and Fox Orders Batman Prequel “Gotham”

News

Once again Louie dared visit a topic that TV has otherwise avoided by acknowledging that men use sex toys. Jokes about women’s vibrators have become commonplace, but a similar joke about men is acknowledging a truth that’s mostly ignored. It was a brilliant bit for the season opener, with the kind of brutal honesty that makes Louie one of TV’s best comedies.

Damon Wayans Jr. will be a series regular on the fourth season of New Girl. Now that that’s been taken care of, when can we get some kind of Happy Endings reunion?

A month ahead of the debut of its second season, Netflix has ordered a third season of Orange is the New Black.

Kristian Nairn talked with Vulture and said what had to be said about Hodor‘s potential as king, “I don’t think Hodor could be any worse than Joffrey.

TV Review: ‘Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge’

TV Review: ‘Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge’
The latest Syfy reality entry to tap this particular vein, “Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge” is a run-of-the-mill elimination contest, distinguished almost entirely by the cool creatures the players — none of whom are novices, given the particular nature of the enterprise — get to create as part of their weekly showdowns. Whether that’s enough to merit sitting through yet another makeup/design/effects-oriented playoff likely depends on how many Henson-produced properties beyond the Muppets one can name. At the least, the low-key series seems well timed to piggyback (or if you prefer, frogback) on the release of the latest “Muppets” feature.

Produced by the late Henson’s company and featuring his son Brian Henson among the judges, the eight-episode series features teams of competitors trying to fabricate utile creatures on extremely tight deadlines. Hosted by actress Gigi Edgley (and five points to those who immediately said, “Farscape”), the show

This has been a terrific season of Face Off so far, with a lot of amazing hits and very few misses. I was afraid that last season’s Veterans vs Rookies would be hard to match, but Season 6 has taken over without missing a beat. Tonight’s spotlight challenge looks particularly cool:

Dancing With the Stars Week 9 Results: Were You Shocked by This Week's Elimination?
DWTS might qualify under the heading of “four-letter word” after Dancing With the Stars‘ controversial Week 9 proceedings.

Along with an ever-shrinking cavalcade of stars (only six remain!), the episode featured both an individual dance (in a style not previously performed), a “trio dance” and what may be the cherry atop the most shocking string of unexpected eliminations in the show’s history.

Seth MacFarlane Takes Fox to a “Bordertown” and Lord Grantham Will Continue to Mismanage “Downton Abbey” for Another Season

News

And the next UK series to get remade for U.S. viewers is… Bad Education. ABC is adapting the Britcom bringing star Jack Whitehall along as the unconventional teacher who battles with school administrators focused on test scores. Unfortunately, I hear it will be revamped into a wacky sitcom about the school’s hockey team with a Friends alum playing the coach.

It’s one of TV’s most-watched programs and Downton Abbey has been renewed for a fifth season. PBS will air the season, probably after fans have had to work to avoid spoilers for months.

Oh dear. Someone is hoping to make a reality show about furries. If this goes well, I’ will be very surprised.

The failure of Ender’s Game in movie theatres makes it unlikely that Orson Scott Card‘s other novels will make it to be big screen. However, Lionsgate says it is still considering a TV spin-off.
