Bacon or Hamm (or Radcliffe or Fillion or Tennant)--What's Your Pleasure? Five Things You May Not Have Heard About This Week

By Cindy Davis | Seriously Random Lists | November 11, 2012 | Comments ()


I find the Important Stuff so you don't have to.

5. "SNL" Released an Extended Version of Louis C.K.'s Lincoln Sketch.

Now with more wifely duties. Slightly NSFW/K.

4. Fox Released a Creepy Trailer for Its New Series "The Following."

Every once in a while, Fox unearths a gem ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, 24"); this psychological thriller looks like it could be the great next entry in their dark and gritty parade. American loves a nasty serial killer and this one--Joe Carroll (James Purefoy)--is so good bad, he's amassed a cult following of baby serial killers. Bacon is ripe for a jump back into the collective consciousness as Ryan Hardy, a disgraced former FBI agent brought back into the fold because of his connection to Carroll. "The Following" premieres on Fox January 13, 2013.

3. We Got a Snappy Little Trailer for "A Young Doctor's Notebook."

Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm as two sides of the same coin? That's the premise for what looks to be a delightful miniseries based on the Mikhail Bulgakov novel. The actors play younger and older versions of Dr. Vladimir Bomgard, a Russian medic who likes to talk to himself. Despite (or perhaps because of) Hamm's questionable accent, you'll want to watch this several times. "A Young Doctor's Notebook" plays on Sky Arts 1's Play House Presents on December 6th. (No word yet on what other methods we stateside folk will have to resort to..).

2. The Science Channel Celebrates "Firefly's" Tenth Anniversary Tonight.

Dirty Talk

Nathan Fillion's True Love

Following an all day "Firefly marathon today, tonight at 10 pm EST, the Science Channel will air the reunion documentary "Firefly: Browncoats Unite," a roundtable discussion between writers Tim Minear and Jose Molina and castmembers Nathan Fillion, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin, Sean Maher and Alan Tudyk, as well as interviews with Morena Baccarin, Gina Torres and Jewel Staite, and...what the second season plans were. As if that's not enough, you can click over and see clips of extra footage.

1. David Tennant Made His "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" Debut.

Our beloved Ten voices a droid named Huyang, who helps the Jedi make their light sabres; he appears in three episodes: "A Test of Strength," "Bound for Rescue," and "A Necessary Strength." After hearing Tennant was a Star Wars fan, Supervising director David Filoni sought out the good Doctor, who "...delivered a performance which impressed even the Master himself, George Lucas." Episodes air Saturdays at 9:30 am EST.

While, Over at Casa Lucas: The Film Wing, Star Wars: Episode VII Named a Scriptwriter.


Academy Award nominated Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine, Toy Story 3) will write the new Star Wars entry that will focus on "a new generation of heroes," and bring the Skywalker family story to a close. Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford are all rumored to be reprising their roles; Episode VII is expected to have a 2015 release.

Cindy Davis simply cannot choose.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    "The Following" sounds very original and interesting. Unfortunately, it's on Fox, and your mentions of "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" and "Firefly" are grim reminders of how Fox handles "original and interesting."

  • Rocabarra

    James Purefoy, aka my beloved Marc Antony back on TV!?

    Christmas came early this year!

  • Sirilicious

    It comes late actually, January 21st.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Oh, a still of young Harrison Ford. Sigh.

    Alas, I do not get the Science Channel. (was not even aware of its existence)

  • jmd

    And I am fuming as the only channel not working on my cable today is the Science channel - so no Firefly and no reunion unless it resets by tonight. :-(

  • Sirilicious

    Which s a very legit reason to go the illegal route this ONE TIME. Unlike me, hardenend European criminal.

  • jmd

    Hmmm, do you have a connection that might be useful? One would be grateful for any info.

  • Sirilicious

    I don't think Pajiba will appreciate me putting a link inhere. I use bittorrent myself, if you've never done that, the trouble of setting it up might put you off. How much do you love Firefly? :)

    If you google 'bittorrent' it's easy to find instructions.

    I think there is a good chance it will turn up on Youtube in a few days.

  • Is it wrong that I want The Following to succeed simply so Winona can't be on Justified?

  • urbanbuffy

    Fringe is another gem that Fox has unearthed.

  • John G.

    I'm excited for the new Star Wars movie. Getting it out of the hands of George Lucas can only be a good thing.

  • googergieger

    2015 eh?

    Anybody want to get a suicide/murder pact going?

  • Mrs. Julien

    Because it's too long to wait, or because it is happening at all?

  • Jezzer

    This is totally going to ruin all the goodwill Lucas built up with the last three movies, which everyone totally loved and no one complained about ever, especially not the script, characterization, over-dependence of CGI, or the Binks.

  • googergieger

    Because it's happening AND it is going to be turrible.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Maybe because it's going to be atrocious?
