tchansen writes “According to sources at http://theforce.net, the original Star Wars trilogy is set for a release date of November 4th, 2004. The rumor is that each of the three films would be released separately with no boxed set of the trilogy. I doubt it will stay that way and that a boxed set will end up available.
Also of note, the episode I and II DVDs will be discontinued on December 31st, 2003 according to another article at TheForce.Net. Speculation is that the Clone Wars cartoons featured on Cartoon Network may soon be released on DVD and that the episode I and II DVDs are discontinued in favor of that release. However, a search of the Zap2It site used as a source for the article didn’t turn up any references to a DVD release of the cartoons.”
Russell T. Davies, who is developing the the return of Doctor Who, dropped a few hints on the differences you’ll see in the new Who. First off, the female companions won’t be “screaming girly companions” (I’m still convinced the only acting Bonnie Langford, who played “Mel”, could really do was scream), citing Buffy, the Vampire Slayer as to why that won’t work. And don’t expect too many old monsters – he wants to make new ones. Even the Daleks may have a tough time getting a job.
