John Scalzi, the creative consultant for Stargate: Universe has mentioned in his blog that he's been signed on for the second season of the series, and is already hard at work looking at scripts and offering feedback.

There may have been an official announcement prior to now, but if there has, I haven't heard about it until Mr. Scalzi mentioned it just now. He goes on to say

Spider Robinson is the author of the "Callahan" series, and an award winning Science Fiction writer. He's picked up three Hugos, one Nebula, a Campbell and a Heinlein as well, but of couse if you don't already know who the guy is, shame on you.

His wife - and occasionally co-writer - Jeanne Robinson is in a bad way. Here's an excerpt from Spider's own website:

Not that there was much debate on the subject, but Dollhouse is now officially dead. Early reports are that they *will* be allowed to finish their 13-episode order for the season, and since Whedon's been given enough warning (He's filming episode 11 as you read this), so there should be some kind of conclusion to the series, but it's gone, baby, gone.

BREAKING NEWS: Disney Acquires Marvel

As reported by multiple sources, Disney has bought Marvel Entertainment, including the comics and the movie divisions for about $4 billion.

Though Marvel has distribution deals with about a half dozen studios right now (Fox (X-Men), Sony (Spider-Man), Paramount (Iron Man/Avengers), etc), Disney seems unconcerned about this and is apparently in it for the long haul.

I personally think that the Marvel U could stand a little Disney-style lightnening-up.

Looking forward to the Fantastic Four Pixar movie... oh wait. That was already done...

BREAKING NEWS: Looks Like Futurama Will Continue To Sound Like Futurama

A while back we reported the story about how the eternally cheap and unattractive FOX suits were attempting to keep the costs on the Futurama revival down by re-casting all the voice actors with soundalikes. The fact that they were holding open auditions at Comicon struck us as a little bit odd, but, hey, if they made any kind of sense at all they wouldn't be FOX, now would they? In any event, it turns out this was all a weird ploy to shame the network in to renegotiating the actor's contracts with some pay raises. Details here.

This is bad: http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118006123.html?categoryid=14&cs=1&nid=...
The bottom line is that 20th Century Fox is looking at once again resurrecting Futurama as a series, and giving them a two-season deal, but with built-in raises the original voice cast is now too expensive for them to use, and unless they're willing to slash their previous salaries, they've already been effectively fired.

BREAKING NEWS: NASA admits Global Warming probably has nothing to do with air pollution, or humans at all

Republibot 3.0's picture

We here at Republibot have long gone on record as being dubious about this whole "Global Warming" thing. Our individual opinions vary from outright disbelief that the phenomenon is actually happening to a grudging admission that something is going on, but we're unsure whether or not it has anything to do with us stupid humans. All three of us agree, however, that fear of Global Warming has been shamefully used to scare people out of their money and their votes. And it's been highly effective at that.
