Stargate Atlantis - Joseph Mallozzi Blog Update Aug 15

From Joseph Mallozzi's blog updated for August 15, 2007:

(Please follow the link for the complete update. There are photos of Christopher Judge visiting and artwork of a Wraith cruiser design.)

Watched the final mix of Adrift this morning. Simply put: Best Season Premiere Ever.

Marty G. pitched out a special guest star for Outcast, a character we haven't seen since his debilitating injury in season. Won't the fans be surprised. Well, probably not as I'm sure you've figured it out.

I'm really looking forward to Harmony. I know Jodelle will be brilliant. She's always brilliant.

Midway is looking big, Big, BIG! Oh, and BamBam has been working on that sparring scene for weeks.

Marty G. promises to have Trio (formerly Full Tilt) done for next week after which he'll no doubt sleep for three straight days.

Watched Kindred II dailies from Terminal City. Dark, dank, disturbing.


Mailbag resumes tomorrow.

Torchwood - BBC America Premiere Sat, Sept. 8th

From the BBC America site:


Save the planet - one alien at a time!

Premieres Saturday, September 8 at 9pm.


This site doesn't have a separate web page for Torchwood yet.

At the top of the page, on the right hand side, click on Torchwood, and a video clip of the promo commercial will play (formatted in Adobe Flash Player 9).

And here's a surprise for dial up users -- whatever BBC America has done for their video, once it loads, this puppy plays normally. No stops and starts like over at SciFi Channel's SciFi Pulse.


Painkiller Jane - Reuters: "Painkiller Jane" put to sleep

From Rueters/Hollywood Reporter (via Yahoo News):

"Painkiller Jane" put to sleep at Sci Fi

Wed Aug 15, 1:16 AM ET

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Sci Fi Channel is pulling the plug on "Painkiller Jane."

The female-centered action-hero series starring Kristanna Loken is wrapping production on its 22-episode first-season order, which will run as planned. Sixteen episodes have aired so far, with the season/series finale slated for September 21

Based on the comic book of the same name, "Jane" centers on top DEA agent Jane Vasco (Loken), a woman with regenerative powers who joins a covert government agency that hunts down "neuros," people with neurological powers.

The cancellation of "Jane" comes on the heels of the strong Friday premiere of another Sci Fi series based on a comic strip, "Flash Gordon," which scored the channel's best series premiere numbers this year.
