Rangerboard’s Shirley Chong has posted an interesting new interview with Power Rangers Time Force‘s Red Ranger(s), Jason Faunt. Check it out.. 🙂
The N has green-lit a second season of 13 episodes for South Of Nowhere. It will begin filming in late spring and the episodes are set to begin airing in October 2006. Yay. 🙂
The WB has decided to move Supernatural to Thursdays at 9PM ET, directly after Smallville, beginning on March 16th. That’ll make it one “super” night. :p … *hides*
Speaking of something super, Warner has announced new details concerning its DVD release of Superman: Ultimate Collector’s Edition. The 14-disc set (including all five Super films – Superman I – IV & Supergirl) is scheduled to be released in November 2006, to coincide with the DVD release of Superman Returns. “The Donner Cut” of Superman II will be exclusive to the boxed set and will consist of 50% never-before-seen footage (70% of it directed by Donner). Click the link above for more details on this and many other releases Warner has planned for 2006.. 🙂
TVShowsOnDVD.com reports that.. Amazon reports that Scrubs: The Complete Third Season will be released onto DVD on May 9th. Yay. 🙂 ..TSoD also reports that the new repriced & repackaged X-Files DVD boxed sets that began being released today (Tuesday) don’t include the Special Features discs from the original releases. I had even considered upgrading to these thinpak case releases (even after buying the originals for at least $80 each), but then Fox had to go and screw it up. Ah well. 🙂
FOX has set its February sweeps month schedule. Unfortunately, it’s disappointing this time around. It includes the two-hour season finale of Arrested Development on February 10th, a special Monday night episode of House on February 20th, a special Tuesday night episode of War At Home on February 28th, and the series premiere of Free Ride (starring Time Force‘s Erin Cahill) on March 1st. It looks like most of their shows are going into reruns opposite the Winter Olympics coverage. Grrrr. If all the other networks do this, I’ll have nothing to watch. Damnit. *pouts* 😦
CULT (The CW) – Rockne S. O’Bannon’s drama pilot, about a man’s (Matthew Bomer) investigation of a string of mysterious deaths and disappearances surrounding a TV series named “Cult,” has been terminated following last week’s announcement of the merger between The WB and UPN. The new network’s limited real estate was cited as the reason by industry insiders. Warner Bros. Television was behind “Cult,” which was to be directed by Yves Simoneau from a script by O’Bannon.
MR. & MRS. SMITH (ABC, New!) – A small screen version of the recent Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt-led feature, about a suburban couple secretly working as competing assassins, is being developed by its director, Doug Liman. ABC has given a pilot order to the project, which is being targeted for midseason 2007 at the earliest. Simon Kinberg, who penned the feature script, is on board to write the pilot with Liman likely directing should his schedule permit. Regency Television and Fox TV Studios are behind the hour, which will be executive produced by Kinberg, Liman and Doug Bartis via the latter two’s Dutch Oven (previously Hypnotic) banner.
SciFi Channel has slightly changed their schedule. Passions will now begin from the first episode on February 13th at 9AM, a week later than previously announced..
I stayed up past 2:30AM last night, for once. To bad there wasn’t a promo to capture. :p ..I awoke the next morning freezing cold. Even more than usual because my dad turned down (or off) the bedroom heaters to try and save some money. *sigh* I read another great chapter of Area 51, briefly got online, had some breakfast, and watched some morning TV. But soon, we went out to media buy..
First, I checked out Best Buy and was only able to purchase Avatar Book 1 Vol 1. Grr. I really wanted the new TMNT volume (I hear they’ve finally stopped including the commercial bumpers). The website says the DVD was in stock, yet the guy I spoke to couldn’t even find the damn thing in their database.. I added a visit to WalMart to try and find the DVD there instead. No luck (though I did notice they were down to one Mystic Force Knight Wolf Battlized Ranger figure.. but I’m not into the toys so..). Then I went to Target. Again, no luck.. Next, I complained like a damn baby to my dad once I realized the person back at Best Buy could’ve gotten the search wrong. We went all the way back out to Best Buy with the little gas my dad had left. I asked two others separately to look for it. It seemed they couldn’t find it either. One couldn’t spell “mutant”, and the other one gave me some bullshit explanation that the website only indicates which stores the DVD can be sent to for in-store pick-up. Grrrrrr. So mostly due to some computer/employee fuck-up, I left the second time with nothing..
We watched Passions. It was somewhat interesting. I’m so rooting for Theresa, even though she’s been acting rather crazy lately.. Next, I watched episodes 11 & 12 on the GitS SAC 2nd Gig Vol 3 DVD (the first was pretty touching, nice little backstory for the main character.. and the second was just awesome). After that, I kinda fell asleep on the couch for a bit. Then returned to my freezing bedroom to inventory the new DVD and to news-gather. I was rather busy with the latter, as you can see above.
I got done online at 8PM again and headed to the living room. We watched According To Jim (lol) and Rodney (lol). But then our evil dictator had to interrupt the night with his bullshit. My dad didn’t want to hear it, so he returned to basketball and I returned to my room. I checked out Anime Network for the first time in a while and watched Cromartie episode 26 with bonus Fuccons episode (lol). I played with the cat a little, finally had a little late supper, then returned to my room. Again..
I can’t believe there’s still money in the bank after the last Tuesday of the month. Usually, it’s down a lot more than it is now. I did pass on a few DVDs this month that I probably would’ve otherwise gotten. And next month looks even lighter DVD-wise. Yay. See ya..

“This year, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union Address fall on the same day. As Air America Radio pointed out, ‘It is an ironic juxtaposition: one involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication, and the other involves a groundhog.'”
