Sons of Anarchy Season 2 Preview

In season 1, we watched the ever growing rift between Jax and Clay. I suspect that this rift will be a central focus in the upcoming 2nd season.

Why do I think that?  Check out this preview of Sons of Anarchy titled Clay Vs. Jax

David Tennant’s Next Role

David Tennant and Sarah Harding have jumped on board their new project called St. Trinian’s II: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold.

It’s reportedly a comedy… if that’s what a “laffer” is.

Does ABC’s Gravity Have A Chance?

ABC has picked up a Fox TV Studios produced adventure drama titled Gravity.

Gravity is about eight astronauts from five different countries who go on a mysterious six-year mission through the solar system.

It stars Ron Livingston, Laura Harris, Christina Cox, Malik Yoba and Florentine Lahme.

It’s going to be produced by Canada’s CTV, Germany’s ProSieben and the BBC.  Just like the show, it’s an international effort.

I know it’s not the same, but it started to remind me of Virtuality a bit…  just a bit.  At least it sounds like ABC will at least give it a chance to flounder rather than cut it’s legs out from under it before it gets going.

Next up: Last week’s network ratings.

  1. HA ha! i’m the first to post.

  2. Strange trend with the crime dramas.
    Sheesh. I don’t watch any of those at all. If I wanted to watch that genre I would watch Showtime or HBO not CBS. Who’s are these Neilsens ?????

  3. Is it all the episodes of Scrubs or just the ones that aired on ABC?

  4. Crime drama’s are the big net… some of them are pretty good as far as I’m concerned. -B

  5. The problems that I have with broadcast/network tv are that the shows aren’t based in a realistic setting…
    Shows like Sopranos, Oz, The Wire, are more realistic to me.
