But that is another story


The Summer Glau Chronicles is now confirmed for the remainder of its second season including not only the two new episode orders but the full back nine. Which for some reason sounds like a double entendre in this context now I come to think of it (hat tip to Agent Bedhead).

The network recently ordered two scripts of the show, so perhaps the stories came in strong. Midseason sci-fi drama "Dollhouse" might be another factor -- Fox's previously announced winter schedule pairs "Dollhouse" and "24" on Mondays and "American Idol" and "Fringe" on Tuesdays, without "Terminator" listed. So perhaps the network has a new scheduling configuration in mind to support its sci-fi efforts.

Related: Girls with guns.

Also related: Cat that looks like Summer Glau (according to Kathy).

Totally unrelated expect for the River/Riverbank pun that is not coming to me and, let's face it, would have been a stretch anyway: Tales of the Riverbank - The Riverbank Clock.

Reason nobody is watching television: Girls burping, dancing and smoking cloves on YouTube is miles better. This last one makes me yearn for the days when eating a piece of cake could take an afternoon. Young people have a lot more time to waste. This blog keeps me too busy in the pixel mines for that sort of frivolity.

I met the creator (also narrator) of Tales of the Riverbank, Paul Sutherland, while working at a software store as a young lad. Went to his house near Flemingdon Park Golf Club to fix his printer, or some other peripheral. I didn't realize who he was until we got to his home office in the basement, and the place was *filled* with Hammy Hamster memorabilia. Then it dawned on me that his voice was familiar too. Chatted a bit about the old shows, and the new ones he was working on for YTV at the time.

Sad to learn he passed away a few years ago.
