The letter S on my keyboard just started sticking. If omething below is mipelled, it not my fault.
Fear the Walking Dead started filming in Vancouver this week. There's a clip, but it's pretty much one minute of nothing.
The X-Files six episode revival will begin with a two-night premiere, Sunday, January 24 at 10:00 and Monday, January 25 at 8:00, and the rest will air on Monday, replacing Gotham reruns.
Stephen Amell appears to be a serious Constantine fan. So much so that he wants someone to pick up the cancelled show and if someone does, he'll guest star as Oliver Queen. Can he do that? I'm assuming he checked with his corporate overlords first.
And David Lynch is back on board with the Twin Peaks revival. I'm sure everyone's happy about that. (I noticed this week that people have tarted talking about The X-Files and Twin Peaks as 'revivals'. That's a nicer descriptor than 'reboots'.)
This week in fall schedules
The networks all came out with their fall schedules this week. It always makes me want to create a grid of sorts, but I'll resist the temptation. So here they are in alpha order so as not to show favoritism: ABC, CBS, The CW, Fox, NBC. And here are the shows we cover, and the shows that interest me the most. In other words, Billie's shows.
MONDAY -- Supergirl, Gotham, Minority Report
TUESDAY -- The Flash, The Muppets, iZombie, Agents of SHIELD
WEDNESDAY -- Arrow, Supernatural
THURSDAY -- The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Sleepy Hollow, The Blacklist
FRIDAY and SATURDAY -- nights when I usually tend to catch up with my DVR
SUNDAY -- Once Upon a Time, The Good Wife. AMC hasn't announced yet, but I'm assuming -- The Walking Dead, Talking Dead
There are a lot of shows that we'll have to wait for until midseason: The 100, Agent Carter, American Ninja Warrior, Containment (Julie Plec's new series, previously known as Cordon which I liked better than Containment), Legends of Tomorrow, Lucifer, Person of Interest, The X-Files. Plus the spring shows like The Americans and Orphan Black.
What did I miss? I'm sure I missed something.
This week in casts
-- Riley Voelkel, who plays Freya, just became a regular on The Originals. That's good news, since in spite of a prominent seaon finale guest spot, Claire Holt still doesn't appear to be returning.
-- Morena Baccarin just became a regular on Gotham. Smart move by the producers.
-- Caity Lotz's character on Legends of Tomorrow has been revealed. And we even got a video! With Spydad!
This week in cats
Kevin Spacey is making a Freaky Friday-like movie called Nine Lives in which he will trade places with his cat! Have you all heard about this already? I hadn't heard about this.
Okay, there is going to be a cat convention in Los Angeles in about three weeks. That's good cat news, too. Albeit a little disappointing, since I don't live in Los Angeles any more and can't attend.
