Author Vonda N. McIntyre, 1948-2019

by on Apr.02, 2019, under Books, Obituaries

Award-winning Science Fiction author Vonda N. McIntyre, perhaps best known for her work in Star Trek including giving the characters of Sulu and Uhura first names as well as being just the third woman to win a Hugo Award, passed away yesterday at the age of 70 from pancreatic cancer.

McIntyre wrote the first original Star Trek novel (and second overall, after the novelization of Star Trek: The Motion Picture), “The Entropy Effect”, in which she gave first names to a couple of the original characters, Hikaru Sulu and Nyota Uhura. The former became canon after fellow author Peter David visited the set of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and convinced the director, Nicholas Meyer, to use the name. The latter didn’t become canon until 2009’s Star Trek movie reboot.

She also won the Hugo, Nebula and Locus Awards for Best Novel in 1979 for Dreamsnake.

You can read her official obituary here.

Supernatural to end after 15th season

by on Mar.24, 2019, under Television

The Earth just shifted slightly on its axis…the CW’s longest running series ever (it started before the WB and UPN merger), Supernatural, will end after the upcoming 15th and final season. Stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, and Misha Collins announced the end on Instagram and Twitter:

The show is currently in the top 20 scripted primetime series on U.S. TV, and with its 15th season I believe will tie for 9th on the list, assuming Grey’s Anatomy gets renewed for a 16th season.

James Gunn reinstated by Disney for Guardians of the Galaxy 3

by on Mar.15, 2019, under Movies

This was a jaw-dropping moment today…Disney did an about-face and reinstated James Gunn as director for Guardians of the Galaxy 3, after having fired him back in July when old inappropriate tweets regarding rape and pedophilia of his surfaced. Gunn was immediately apologetic over his “poor judgement” at bad humor.

Today, Gunn was grateful for Disney’s letting him back in:

The reaction in social media seems relatively positive, but bears close monitoring.

Arrow gets shortened 8th and final season

by on Mar.06, 2019, under Television

One of the CW’s Arrowverse shows will come to an end…and it’s the first and flagship show, Arrow. The show will have an 8th and final season of 10 episodes. Star Stephen Amell broke the news today on Twitter

Arrow executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Beth Schwartz released a joint statement: “This was a difficult decision to come to, but like every hard decision we’ve made for the past seven years, it was with the best interests of Arrow in mind. We’re heartened by the fact that Arrow has birthed an entire universe of shows that will continue on for many years to come. We’re excited about crafting a conclusion that honors the show, its characters and its legacy and are grateful to all the writers, producers, actors, and — more importantly — the incredible crew that has sustained us and the show for over seven years.”

Arrow spawned a franchise for DC Comics on the CW, with three more successful shows – The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl, and a fifth series, Batwoman, is set to join next season.

Star Trek: Discovery renewed for third season

by on Feb.27, 2019, under Television

The mission will continue for the CBS All Access flagship show as CBS has renewed Star Trek: Discovery for a third season. In addition, The Originals producer Michelle Paradise will join Alex Kurzman as co-showrunner after having joined the show as co-executive producer this season.

With Discovery and the upcoming Jean-Luc Picard series starring Patrick Stewart, CBS All Access appears all-in for Star Trek, so it will be interesting to see what they do next. It appears that they are poised to bring back Star Trek in multiple channels, much the way Disney has been working on Star Wars, with live action and animated shows all in development.
