Logan’s Run – The Series to be released on DVD
by Doc on Dec.15, 2011, under Television, Video/DVD
I just learned that Logan’s Run – The Series will be [sfs=1186]released on DVD April 10th, 2012[/sfs]. I’ve long thought that this series might never make it to DVD – it wasn’t particularly good and it didn’t last long, but it is one I remember as a kid. But it seems that slowly they are bringing out pretty much everything.
If you don’t quite remember the series, I did a Retro Review of it four years ago. I may just have to get the DVD set and re-review it…
Golden Globe nominations out – Harry Potter absent, Game of Thrones in
by Doc on Dec.15, 2011, under Awards, Movies, Television
The science fiction and fantasy genre seems to have taken a hit in the latest Golden Globe nominations. It don’t see anything in the Motion Picture awards at all aside from the animated features, which is very surprising given the major buzz about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. Harry Potter could still see an Oscar nod as the field is larger there, but it could mean it is a longshot at winning.
On the TV side, however, there were a few genre hits, notably Game Of Thrones receiving nods for “Best Television Series – Drama” and a “Best Supporting Actor” for Peter Dinklage, while American Horror Story also received one for “Best Television Series – Drama” and “Best Supporting Actress” for Jessica Lange.
SF-friendly show The Big Bang Theory saw a single nod for Johnny Galecki for “Best Performance By An Actor In A Television Series – Comedy Or Musical”.
The complete nomination list is available at Deadline.
Ponds to leave Doctor Who in next series
by Doc on Dec.15, 2011, under Television
Time is running out for Amy and Rory. After a screening of the upcoming Christmas episode of Doctor Who, “The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe”, Steven Moffat spoke and let the cat out of the bag: Amy and Rory will be leaving the TARDIS during the next series, and will do so “heartbreakingly”.
Sounds like the next series is going to be very hard to watch. 🙁
