Tom Baker Returns to Doctor Who after 28 Years!

After nearly 30 years away from the part, Tom Baker is returning to Doctor Who!  Baker has recorded five audio dramas that will be released by the BBC starting in September at a rate of one a month.  While I’m sure we’d all love to see Baker on the new television series, audio is really […]

Trade Paperback Explosion

Seems like I’ve picked up several trades in the past few weeks. When the heck am I going to find the time to read them all, on top of my normal monthly pull of single issues?!?!?!  I’ll make the time somehow, all of these look really good. Eureka – I love me some Eureka!  And […]

Eureka Returns Tonight!

Eureka returns tonight on the Sci-Fi network!  I really enjoy this show… and so should you!  While I haven’t seen every episode, the ones I have were a real hoot.  The series is funny, smart, sometimes sexy, and always entertaining.  There is a brief interview over at io9 with Colin Ferguson and co-creator Jamie Paglia […]

DC Comics DVDs – Green Lantern & Superman/Batman

DC Comics has two upcoming films in their DVD series of DC Universe animated original PG-13 movies.  Both look great and I’m definitely picking them up! Green Lantern: First Flight will be available on July 28.  While I’d rather they’d featured Kyle instead of Hal, this movie still looks really good!  This story covers how […]

If you’d been a fly on the wall during our 1,400 mile road trip, you might have overheard the following… “I’m trying to get us outta here and you’re taking this apart now?!?“ Heard as Shag was loading the truck while Serv was dismantling a desk. “And I thought they smelled bad on the outside.“ […]


TONIGHT! Torchwood – Children of Earth

After waiting over 14 months, tonight we finally get the next installment of Torchwood!  Instead of a 13-episode full season, we’re getting a five-part mini-series entitled, “Children Of Earth”.  This storyline airs over five consecutive nights – July 6 through 10 on the regular BBC, and July 20 through 24 on BBC America.  It’s disappointing […]
