This just looks cool – so cool, they made a trailer for it. It’s a book about the first 150 years of history of the United Federation of Planets, in a nice book that also comes with a lighted stand which also has a recorded message from Admiral Hikaru Sulu. Check out the video, and pre-order from Amazon.com today (it will be released on November 30th, 2012).
NBC’s pilot reboot of The Munsters, Mockingbird Lane, finally has a Herman and Lily Munster…or, at least, a Herman. Jerry O’Connell (Sliders) has been tapped for the role of Herman Munster, the clumsy patriarch and Frankenstein of the movie-monster-merged family.
The twist is that Mariana Klaveno (True Blood), who has been chosen to play matriarch Lily Munster, is currently committed to an ABC pilot, Devious Minds, which is now being considered for pickup by Lifetime. Klaveno had only a minor role in the pilot but is still under contract, and ABC Studios, which is the show’s producer, isn’t budging – even with NBC offering to allow her a recurring role on Devious Minds so long as they have priority.
Previously announced castings are comedian Eddie Izzard (United States of Tara) as Grandpa Munster; Mason Cook (Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D ) as 10-year-old werewolf son Eddie; and Charity Wakefield (The Raven) as the “normal” cousin.
In next Monday’s episode of Eureka, Carter’s romantic surprise for Allison turns deadly when they’re trapped in a sinking marine lab with time and oxygen quickly running out. Tune in next Monday at 9/8c!

Anna Silk (Being Erica) stars as seductress Bo, a Succubus (a powerful female entity in folklore) who feeds off sexual energy. Raised by human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door – until she “drained” her first boyfriend to death.
Bo discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend who pass as humans while secretly feeding off them. Faced with choosing between an allegiance to the Dark or Light Fae clans, Bo takes the middle path between the human and Fae worlds while embarking on a mission to unlock the secrets of her origin.
Returning for season three are Kris Holden-Ried (Ben Hur, The Tudors, Underworld 4) as “Dyson”; Ksenia Solo (Life Unexpected; Black Swan) as “Kenzi”; Zoie Palmer (The Guard, Instant Star, XIII) as “Lauren”; Rick Howland (Billable Hours, Murdoch Mysteries) as “Trick” and K.C. Collins (Owning Mahowny, Doomstown) as “Hale.”
Joining the Lost Girl cast this season is Rachel Skarsten (The Vow; Flashpoint) in a recurring role as “Tamsin,” a thrill-seeking, sexy new Fae who ruffles many feathers. Emmanuelle Vaugier (Two and a Half Men, Covert Affairs) will reprise her role as “The Morrigan,” the leader of the Dark Fae.
Lost Girl was developed by Prodigy Pictures, in association with Shaw Media and Showcase. Executive producers are Jay Firestone, Emily Andras, Plato Fountidakis, and Paul Rapovski. James Thorpe is co-executive producer, Vanessa Piazza is co-producer and Wanda Chaffey is producer.
