Sarah Connor Chronicles Gets Full Season


Despite struggling in the ratings on a very tough night & timeslot (Mondays/8PM), FOX has decided to pick up the back 9 episodes of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' second season.

Couldn't've happened to a better show.

I hope all my tens of readers will sample--It's really a fun, thought-provoking, subversive show. Great character work, highly suspenseful, and top-notch action.

Star Trek Plot Details

Star Trek’s time-travel plot is set in motion when a Federation starship, the USS Kelvin, is attacked by a vicious Romulan (Eric Bana) desperately seeking one of the film’s heroes. From there, the film then brings Kirk and Spock center stage and tracks the origins of their friendship and how they became officers aboard the Enterprise. In fact, the movie shows how the whole original series crew came together: McCoy (Karl Urban), Uhura (Zoë Saldana), Scotty (Simon Pegg), Sulu (John Cho), and Chekov (Anton Yelchin). The adventure stretches from Earth to Vulcan, and yes, it does find a way to have Nimoy appearing in scenes with at least one of the actors on our cover — and maybe both. The storytelling is newbie-friendly, but it slyly assimilates a wide range of Trek arcana, from doomed Captain Pike (Bruce Greenwood) to Sulu’s swordsmanship to classic lines like, ”I have been, and always shall be, your friend.” More ambitiously, the movie subversively plays with Trek lore — and those who know it. The opening sequence, for example, is an emotionally wrenching passage that culminates with a mythic climax sure to leave zealots howling ”Heresy!” But revisionism anxiety is the point. ”The movie,” Lindelof says, ”is about the act of changing what you know.”

Guys, this movie's gonna rock. Unfortunately, we have to wait til next May for it.

That was the best episode of SNL I've seen in a long time. The political sketches were spot-on (see below), but--shockingly--the non-political sketches were actually funny or clever -- sometimes both in the same sketch. Can you imagine?

A smart, talented guest host (Anne Hathaway) can make all the difference, huh?

This Thursday at 9:30PM, SNL begins a month of live, prime-time political satire. Woof!!
