So, it turns out Sci-Fi's big three-hour movie about M. Night Shyamalan
is nothng but a hoax and was done as a p.r. piece to drum up interest for his new movie. I didn't see it, but based on the hype I did set the VCR for it. Now I find myself dramatically less interested in it. Also, I find myself wishing that Sci-Fi's cancelling of Farscape
had been a hoax. Alas, that isn't the case. (Speaking of Farscape
, I saw the preview for the upcoming PeaceKeeper Wars mini-series. Wow, I'm excited!)
Speaking of sci-fi shows, William Shatner has an idea of how he could guest star
next year. Rick Berman says that Shatner has "a great story idea" for Shatner's appearing on the show. Now, as most of you know, I love Shatner and think he's great--but the only way he should be on any Star Trek
show is as Captain James T. Kirk. As for this "great story idea," I have to admit I've lost some faith in Rick Berman. Because lately he just doesn't seem to know what a great story idea is. His stories with Brannon Braga are consistenly my least favorite on Enterprise
and I have to wonder if this great idea is one that is a good story or a good stunt to promote the heck out of Shatner returning to Star Trek
. If you're gonna have him on there, it has to be a GREAT concept and idea to go with it, not just a--gee, how can we spike those ratings. And let us also remember that Berman thought it'd be OK to have the Borg on Enterprise
even though it completely disrupts and violates the established Trek
continuity. Cause dang-nabbit, those Borg guys drive in the ratings!
Banks cited for underage consumption

Opened up the sports page Saturday to see this news. Not good news for the Vols going into a season with inexperience at QB. Yes, we've got a plethora of wide receivers there and I hope they live up to their potential. Because, James Banks hasn't done it. And after I criticized Fulmer on Friday for appearing to have a lack of discipline, it looks like he may have to have some tough love here and cut Banks from the team.
