I confess, I’m in love with the Sarah Connor Chronicles. I’ve never been a big Terminator fan. However, being a big Summer Glau fan led me to latch onto this series and not let go. Terminator: SCC was given half of a season to start the year with, however the picture has been looking bleak lately due to low ratings. It has a tough time period currently, going up against the Genre similar Chuck and the ratings giant Dancing with the Stars….Posted in Television News
How would you rate the current state of the television industry? That’s the question we discussed in detail at the Television Report Card call-in show over on our GeekiNput page. We talk about all things TV. Well, not all things, actually. We left out those spoilery things, as it’s virtually impossible to have watched everything on TV currently.

As part of my ongoing experiment of watching Chuck and Supernatural while Scott watches Babylon 5 (See the articles I’ve pereviously written for more details on this), I’m bringing you an update on my progress. I have now completed the entirety of Chuck, and moved through the first three episodes of Supernatural. What did I think? Keep reading to find out.Posted in Articles
In just two weeks, GeekiNput will go on the air to talk about the past and future of Heroes. Need something to get you in the mood and pumped up for that discussion? Try the trailer below. I checked it out out of curiosity, but I actually found myself with goosebumps at some of the scenes. It’s not too spoilery, as it just lets you know what to expect from this season. Still, it has me more excited than I have been in a long while.

I admit that quite often I’m a bit too hard on new shows. If they don’t capture my attention right off the bat, I often quickly dump them. Even worse, sometimes I never give them a shot to begin with. My television watching schedule is already pretty full with the shows that I consider myself to be a fan of.
The problem with this is that quite often, I miss out on a lot of really good shows. As recently as 6 months ago, I had only watched 2 episodes of Lost. Now it ranks amongst my favorite shows on television. I didn’t get into Veronica Mars until the second season, just because it sounded…un-compelling. I missed the original television run of Firefly (Though, then again, is that such a bad thing?).
My point is that often I unfairly judge a show before I give it a fair shot. We all do it. Admit it. How many of you refuse to watch The O.C. because of your impressions of what it might be? Well, the other day I entered into an agreement with TheDoctor (Scott) to rectify two cases of pre-maturely judging a show. Well, two cases for me, and one for him. I’ve agreed to give Supernatural and Chuck a fair shot, if he would be willing to do the same for Babylon 5.
It’s a pretty sweet deal for me, because I’ve been trying to get him to watch B5 now for a while, but talking him past the first season isn’t an easy thing. Meanwhile, I have to watch two shows as well that I haven’t really given a shot. I watched the first episode of Supernatural, and decided it wasn’t the show for me. And Chuck? As appealing of a name as the show has (/sarcasm), what little I know about it has never grabbed me. But Josh Shwartz (Going back to The O.C.)? Adam Baldwin? Somehow, I’ll find a way to soldier through, I’m sure.
The deal is simple. I watch Supernatural and Chuck for a mostly unspecified amount of time (We’ll say at least into season 2 of Supernatural, and the entire season of Chuck). And Scott watches Babylon 5 at least up to "Coming of Shadows". In both cases, we should then have enough of an opinion of each show to mostly judge it for what it is. In Scott’s case, it’s a little risky, because ultimately a lot of season 1 of Babylon 5 isn’t fantastic. Personally I think there are about 3 episodes up to and including "Coming of Shadows" that are pretty fantastic. But will it be enough of a glimpse into the series of a whole to grab ahold of him? We shall see.
Which of us has the better road ahead? Who got the better deal? What show are you unfairly hesitant to watch despite the suggestions to do so? Stay tuned as I keep a running list of entries about my experiences and thoughts while I go through my half of the deal.

AFTRA is a union made up of 77,000 actors from television and radio, which includes 44,000 members that also belong to the SAG. Recently, the SAG began pushing for AFTRA members to vote down a deal that the guild leaders had reached in principle with Hollywood studios. Instead, yesterday AFTRA ratified the vote with a 63% approval rating. This deal undercuts a lot of SAG’s powers to strike, and is good news for entertainment fans everywhere.
I personally hope that all actors get the deals that they deserve. But work stoppage hurts everyone involved. So I am glad to see that this happened in order to make the liklihood a little smaller. The SAG can still call for a strike vote, but losing the support of a majority of it’s AFTRA members could be a barometer for how things would turn out in that regard.

I must say, I’ve had a lot of enjoyable episodes of podcasts in the past 3 years. But this ranks right up there at the top. If you are a Lost fan, you won’t want to miss listening to this episode. Clocking in at just under 3 hours, we receive a lot of help this episode from our listeners in creating a fun and entertaining look at the series.
If you have not watched Lost all the way through, this is probably not the episode for you. We free ourselves to discuss spoilers until our hearts are content. And spoilers there are. A large number of characters are discussed in detail, including their motivations, their character arcs, their relationships, and even their deaths.
The end result is an episode that could’ve went on much longer. But the content and discussion we did get was fantastic. Thanks again to everyone that tuned in. If you still haven’t caught one of these shows, you are running out of opportunities. Next week is the E3/Video Game discussion, followed the next week by Comic Book Films. Join us!
*edit* New version of the episode is up, with hopefully improved audio levels.

Tonight begins a more focused discussion on the GeekiNput call-in show segment. We begin a spoiler filled discussion of seasons 1-4, as well as a look at what we’d like to see happen in the future.
Anyone that has seen the series is welcome to join in the calls, or just come for the chat room. In case you missed the action last week, it is a lot of fun. Anyone with a phone that can handle U.S. long distance, or a VOIP client with a microphone/headset can join us on the call. We will be asking you a couple questions concerning the show, but this week we want you to give us some comments and questions of your own, concerning the show. If absolutely can’t join the call, we encourage you to sit in the chat room, and discuss the show there. It’s a lot of fun to interact with the show live, and last week had a lot of people to chat with.
While we want to keep a majority of the focus on actual discussion of the series, we will still have a couple questions to present to our callers to get to know their Lost tastes.
1> Who is your favorite character?
2> Who is your least favorite character?
3> Jack and Kate? Kate and Sawyer? Or that love triangle can bit me? (Spoiler)
4> Most powerful/touching/frustrating death scene to you?
Hope to see you around tonight! 8pm EST, 5pm PST
