Just a couple of quick, fun and nerdy things-
Mystery Science Theater is returning. Sort of. The Film Crew compromises the three principles who were also writers- Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy. They are releasing new dvds that've been given that MST touch. There aren't any robots or mad scientists behind the scenes but there's plenty of mocking of bad acting and styrofoam rocks. Sorrry - no Joel, either.
Doctor Who has returned for a third season and a new companion who, in my opinion, is hotter than Janet Fielding's Tegan. No word yet on when they'll broadcast in the states but their are alternatives... Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, saynomore, saynomore.
Rowan Atkinson has a new flick coming out. Sadly it's Mr. Bean and not Blackadder. Here's an interview where he talks about both and admits his admiration for Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat. If you haven't seen "Keeping Mum" then I suggest you rent it. Atkinson shines in this very dark, dry comedy.
"Stardust" How the heck did fantasy/ sci-fi movie starring Peter 'O'Toole, Robert De Niro get by me? It looks to have a cool Terry Gilliam/ "Adventures of Baron Munchausen" vibe.
