Pardon me for interrupting the 31 Days of Blogging Honesty. Chris from Nerds of the Round Table is always beating me to the punch on breaking science fiction news and giving out great information on upcoming movies and series finales, and comic book story lines and I could go on ad nauseum. I’m sure he knows about this new movie, Super 8 but he has yet to blog about it. The movie comes out June 10th so I felt like I needed to post it now and not later. Tomorrow you will be returned to you regularly scheduled post.
You know my love for science fiction. You know J. J. Abrams and Mr. Steven Spielberg are two very talented Directors/Producers/Cinematic Geniuses, right. If you don’t know already, the two have teamed up for a late seventies science fantasy/fiction horror film. It’s called Super 8 and for this one, I’m not sure I can wait for the DVD. This might be the movie we should see together Cherlyn.
In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.

So, what do you guys think? Any takers? Do you think this movie will tank or be another blockbuster?

Being both a self confessed movie and television addict, I always look forward to what new shows the networks are adding to the boob tube line up. I’m also eager to see how the cliffhangers from the previous season will turn out. Most notably this season I’m waiting to see what happens to Gibb’s father on NCIS. I know what I’ve read spoiler, (don’t read the rest of this sentence if you don’t want to know); Gibb’s father survives but doesn’t live past the first show.
A moment of silence for the death of Jack Bauer on television and a moment more for however long it takes to bring 24 to the big screen.
Who knew that NBC would be must see TV again? Most of the new shows and returning shows I am looking forward to are on NBC. Of course I am very interested in finding out just what the heck The Event is. I have always liked Blair Underwood as an actor and it will be good to see him as President. Critics have talked about The Event as if it is the new Lost. I didn’t watch Lost, so I can’t speak on that, but if there is even an hint of sci-fi, I might be glued to the set.
Another show that has piqued my interest is from film director J. J. Abrams (Star Trek). Undercovers not only has a great theme song (or at least for the commercials for the show), but it has Gugu Mbatha-Raw. I first saw Gugu Mbatha-Raw on the season opener of Doctor Who (2007), Smith and Jones. Gugu Mbatha-Raw played Tish Jones, the sister of Martha Jones, who was The Doctor’s companion that year. I miss Martha.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw wasn’t on screen for more than two or three minutes but she is so very sexy with very kissable lips that she left an impression on me that I haven’t been able to shake. Well I haven’t really tried. April’s not jealous at all. Her list of sexy celebs eclipses mine by about twenty actors!
Staying with NBC, Chuck’s dad is dead and now is mother is going to enter the picture. I’m not as into the show as I first was. I would watch Chuck and then change to watch 24 but alas, no more 24. I haven’t watched an episode of any Law & Order in about three years but I think I will watch the new Law & Order: Los Angeles. Just want to see what it has to offer and see what the theme song will be like.
That’s all I really have to talk about for this fall season. What if anything are you waiting to see? Even if you don’t live in the United States, what shows in your country interest you the most.
By the way, if anyone knows the name of the Undercovers theme song, let me know. It’s a latin song but I have no idea who the artist is or what the name is.
