I didn’t even realize there was a Blade spin-off TV show. If you didn’t either, and you want to check it out, the pilot episode is downloadable for free on iTunes.

My New Line contact just alerted me to this awesome contest they’re doing for Snakes on a Plane. Here’s the gist of it: Think you’re a King Cobra? Are you the biggest and baddest SNAKES ON A PLANE fan around? Prove it! And if you can .. we’ll help you flaunt it! The most supreme …
Oh, you want to know who won the Superman Returns contest that ended on July 4th, nine days ago? Oops. What can I say. You all know I’ve been a bit distracted lately. My sincere apologies. I printed up the names of all entrants, put them in a coffee can and had them drawn by …
FOXNews.com – ‘South Park’ Scientology-Bashing Episode to Re-Air – Television “Trapped in the Closet,” the controversial “South Park” episode that skewers Scientology and its popular proponent Tom Cruise, is hitting the airwaves again. Comedy Central plans to air the Emmy-nominated episode on July 19. It was last scheduled to rerun in March but was abruptly …
Previously on Monitor Duty, I asked for the opportunity to name our newly discovered tenth planet Procrustes. (What’s the status on that? And do I get money?) Now, with the new fossil discovery of a vicious fanged kangaroo and a demon duck of doom, I would like to suggest that the fanged kangaroo should be …
Who killed Fidel Castro?
Jimmy Olsen will be joining the cast of Smallville in the upcoming 6th season. He’ll be played by Aaron Ashmore, whose twin brother Shawn has played Iceman in the X-Men movies and Eric Summers in a couple episodes of Smallville. According to the article Jimmy will be romanticly linked to Chloe.
Here is the 22-minute pilot for “Supernerds,” about Patton Oswalt (the comic book loving comedian mentioned in the previous posting) and Brian Posehn (the tall goof from “Just Shoot Me”) as owners of a comic book shop.
Chuck Dixon’s recent comments about “tourists” (writers from TV/movies/novels who are invited to become top talents at comic companies) gave me mixed feelings. For those of you who missed it, here is what Chuck wrote on his message board: Tourists It bothers me when they don’t know anything about the craft of writing comics but …
Here is a listing of the Ninth Doctor’s adventures in chronological order. These adventures include the novels and comic strips, along with a few short stories and are all considered to be in continuity. Enjoy. This is a companion piece to Alan Kistler’s Profile on the Ninth Doctor.
It had been sixteen years since the original series had been cancelled. Nine years since FOX had attempted to start a new series with their TV-Movie pilot, which gave us a Doctor who was not against romance and lived in a TARDIS that had a much larger control room. Although the Eighth Doctor and his …
It’s common knowledge to regular readers that our bud the Continuity Cop plans to do a guide on Captain America. I find that weak. Yes, there’s a lot of cool stuff about Captain America and for sheer volume of cool stuff it’s an ambitious undertaking. But aside from the character having five successors and still …
Sorry for the goofy subject line, but I saw the news item about the late Aaron Spelling’s monster mansion going on the market for $150 million and it just reminded me of the MST3K segment during Angels’ Revenge where the Spelling mansion passes by the Satellite of Love and it is even longer than the …
They aren’t taking credits, or even gold-pressed latinum as hundreds (thousands?) of Star Trek items are finally being sold. With “Enterprise” over and no Star Trek shows or movies in production, Paramount has decided to finally offer some of the most-prized items for sale. Models, uniforms, Borg outfits, weapons, tribbles… Just remember to bring money.
Even the Man of Steel has problems with big city newspapers and revealing journalism. Recently there have been (well, are) various matters of controversy regarding how much rights and freedom and periodical has to publish information and whether our governmental institutions and protective services should have it secrets and confidential details kept from the general …
on his downtime…. Such hatred. Such malice. So much of the time…. So much for a religious icon!
Continuing with the other DOCTOR WHO CHRONOLOGY LISTS, this features the comic strip and audio play adventures of the Eighth Doctor. I have not included the Eighth Doctor novels for reasons I explained in the Eighth Doctor Profile. If you feel cheated and wish such a timeline that includes those books, I suggest you go …
That is all.
My fellow Monitor Duty folk refuse to post.
Superman Returns was released on Wednesday and I re-watched the original Donner film that night. So soon after I absorbed in one helping the awful process of getting a passable Supermovie past Jon Peters from 1987 to 2004 and I take in a not-so-delightful pair of Agony Booth reviews for Superman IV: the Quest for …
