The writer's strike might actually be good for ABC's Lost Season 4, which starts on its new night this Thursday - don't forget! This being one of the few shows with more than a handful of episodes (8) while other shows are airing the bits and pieces they have saved up from before the writer's strike. Any suggestions on how to sedate my kids by 7 AM CST (8 PM EST) on Thursdays?

But where, oh where, is Jess of Apropos of Something? I will really be disappointed if I don't have Lost-vivor to look forward to this year.

Lots of groundswell to try and save NBC's "Journeyman", a well-written serial drama with great writing and tons of potential. Looks like no more episodes have been ordered and episode 12 may be it for this show - so if there's an opportunity to save the show, it closes within the next couple weeks. There are a couple plans out there:

  • Groundlings say to watch Journeyman episodes online Monday night via NBC's website. This costs you nothing, but would send the network a message that there is a fan base. If you've never seen the show, start with the pilot, of course 🙂
  • A comment at the above blog gave out the name of the press manager for the show:

    Park, Joanne

    Senior Press Manager - NBC Entertainment Publicity (Project Assignment: “It’s a Wonderful Life” “The Singles Table” “Journeyman” “The Office”)

    Phone: (818) 840-4579

    Fax: (818) 840-4943


  • Sign an online petition. Mostly worthless, but it doesn't hurt.
  • is planning to send either Rice-a-Roni or Aspirin to the network (show-related). I might even consider this once the campaign has made up their minds.

I know it's kind of sad to see somebody whining about how their favorite show is on the chopping block - and oh, the injustice in the world (or at least in the business of network television). Ah well, at least I did my bit to spread the word. That's what these self-serving, narcissistic blogs are about, right? 😉

Once again, NBC's Journeyman is proving itself to be a solid science-fiction serial drama, overshadowing its sophomore lead-in Heroes. The stakes have been escalating over the past few weeks, and last night's episode was probably my favorite so far. Last night was the first time I felt really bad for Livia, too.

So far not one of the plot lines on NBC's Heroes has intrigued me. But Journeyman looks good so far. Read the rest of this entry ...

I found Chad Vader last night and finished watching the series this morning. This is not your typical YouTube video, the production value is pretty high. Apparently they are compiling the series onto a DVD while planning for "Season 2". Each video is about 5 minutes long. Here are the links in recommended watching order:

I like how the last episode of Season 1 and the video blogs set up the major plots for Season 2. I'm looking forward to it! 🙂
