Happy Birthday, Christina Hendricks!
109 has a look at sci-fi time loops.
Wil Wheaton remembers the Atari. God, I loved that machine. I tried a few times to get into a Nintendo, Sega or X-Box, but there are just too many damned buttons. Joystick and red button, and blow shit up. That's the ticket.
Banning comic sans, the ugliest and most overused font EVER.
Has Chuck been saved? Hey, I bought my $5 footlong! More Chuck, please!
Gillian Anderson on Doctor Who? Swoon.
Swine Flu panic? Let the movies show you how to handle it.
Lostpedia interviews Darlton.
A Lost "in memoriam."
Favorite TV hangouts.
Holier than thou gasbag Sean Hannity calls Kim Kardashian a "role model" for girls. A. I don't think he does much research, and B. when his daughter is getting fucked on camera for a porn tape, maybe he might want to revisit that statement.
Galactica Sitrep found these odd little videos, with animated characters bitching about BSG to a clown standing for Ron Moore.
If this is the case, I should be the least lonely person alive.
E! talks to Dollhouse's Topher.
Paleyfest report on Fringe.
Fake tits, "real" marriage and empty heads.
Anna Faris will start in a new comedy about that age old relationship irritant: What's Your Number? Apparently, her character sets a limit on the number of dudes she can bang in her lifetime: 20. If one of my exes had done that, she'd have hung up her panties during recess.
Speaking of which, I find it odd that this headline was from Columbus Ohio.
Yep, that's my home state. Forget the fish, bread and eternal life. Nothing says benevolent mythological deity like an affordable Korean car.
Like a lot of sci-fi fans, I enjoyed Ender's Game. But the author is a whackjob, and just joined the NOM, to "declare war on the government" if they recognize marriage equality. I guess giant space insects are bigots, too.
Another good interview with Darlton, from Variety.
Televisionary talks with Caprica showrunner (and writer of Friday's AWESOME Dollhouse ep, "Briar Rose") Jane Espenson. BTW, I saw Caprica on DVD, and it was terrific. Highly recommended.
Atlanta sports fans rejoice. Our long national nightmare is over: Terence Moore leaves the AJC. (Typical column: bad owners, race, Aaron, Braves suck, race, bad sentence, race, Big Red Machine, race. Oh, and race).
Good look at UGA from Tony Barnhart.
The 5 Hardest Things to do in Acting. I guess "read dialogue in a George Lucas movie" or "convey emotion in a Michael Bay movie" just missed the cut.
