Final episode of The Cape to be screened online only?

by on Mar.02, 2011, under Television

So, if NBC cutting the episode order to 10 wasn’t enough to convince you that The Cape will not return next season, perhaps this will: The final episode, which did not air as originally expected on Monday, will probably never be shown on TV, but rather appear as an online exclusive.

It was thought that they’d close out the show with a double episode, when NBC pushed back The Event and extra week. But that would have meant a two-week layoff for Chuck (which seems to always be uncomfortably close to the bubble), and when the time came there was Chuck, and only one episode of The Cape. NBC says they are “prepping an exclusive episode for online fans”…

Help save the Lars Homestead

by on Mar.02, 2011, under Movies

Always dreamed of traveling to Tatooine and taking in the sites, like Mos Eisley, Toshi Station, and of course the place that Luke Skywalker grew up, the Lars Homestead? Well, you can (turmoil in Tunisia notwithstanding). However, some of the locations have fallen into disrepair, including the homestead exterior, and a group would like to fix that. They estimate they need about $10,000 to fix up the exterior, and they are almost 79% of the way there. They have some great photos as well so you can see the various locations, not just of Tatooine, but the Cairo of Raiders Of The Lost Ark and others.

What of the Lars interior, you ask? It’s still there, and in decent condition – it just happens to be about 150 miles away from the exterior, and is actively used as a hotel – one without power, apparently…

Stargate Universe preview: “Deliverance”

by on Mar.02, 2011, under Television

In the anticipated return of an all-new episode of Stargate Universe, Dr. Rush checks on the team as they try to run a bypass through a section of the Destiny to boost power. Slow and steady seemed to be the right road until they pushed a little too far and the plan backfires. The team tries to assure Rush that it’s just going to take more time. Watch the clip and tune in on Monday at 10/9c to find out if the team can make any progress on the Destiny as the final 10 episodes kick off and they reach the climax of their epic adventure!

Don’t forget – if Stargate Universe gets great ratings in its return (and I mean GREAT – like premiere-level great) through the last 10 episodes, there there is still the possibility that there will be some sort of future for the show…
