Glitter News


THE CAPE, coming early next year, is about a framed cop who dresses like his son's favorite comic book hero to fight crime. He will have weekly crimes to solve, not so much discovering little things each week. That was creator Tom Wheeler's pitch to NBC.
"One of the things we found with Heroes was it was so much about the discovery of their powers and that was sort of the premise of the first year," Bromstad said on July 30 in Beverly Hills, Calif. at the Television Critics Association fall press tour. "This is really more of a procedural. This was the showrunner's vision of the show and I think that he probably saw this more as a comic book and more that this is the way he wanted to tell the story. I think he did want to avoid some of the issues on Lost and Heroes. I think it's a fair thing and I think he definitely wanted to do that."
THE CAPE is a self-made crime fighter. He's more like a Batman or Green Hornet type who puts on a costume to kick butt. Viewers won't have to worry about following the rules of magical powers. "This character in The Cape doesn't have super powers," Bromstad said. "He's trained in a way that he just is able to manipulate things but he doesn't have super powers the way the heroes characters did."
The villains THE CAPE faces may have some technology beyond the real world. But his own methods only look like magic, the way an illusionist does. That's actually cooler, making it look like he's super powered when he's really just a skilled guy. "He's trained by this character, sort of a Houdini," Bromstad said.
THE CAPE stars David Lyons, Summer Glau and Vinnie Jones. It's coming to NBC in 2011.

Terrence Howard LAW AND ORDER: LA
Associated Press reports that Terrence Howard is joining the cast of NBC's newest "Law & Order" spinoff.
Howard will play a deputy district attorney in LAW & ORDER: LOS ANGELES, rotating with Alfred Molina, who was previously announced as a prosecutor on the drama.
Series creator Dick Wolf said Friday the combination of Howard and Molina makes him feel like the manager of the 1961 Yankees. Wolf said he now had his "Mantle and Maris," referring to sluggers Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. Also joining the cast of "LOLA," as the "Law & Order" spinoff is nicknamed, is Corey Stoll. He's in the movie SALT and guest-starred in the original "Law & Order."
LAW & ORDER: LOS ANGELES debuts Sept. 29.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Time Warner's TNT has ordered new seasons of hit shows "The Closer," "Leverage" and "Rizzoli & Isles" for 2011.
"The Closer," which continues to rank as ad-supported cable’s No. 1 series of all time, is coming back for its seventh season. "Leverage," now in a Sunday timeslot, will return for season four.
And new show "Rizzoli & Isles," which is cable’s No. 1 new series year-to-date, will be brought back for its second season.
TNT has ordered 15 episodes each of the two first shows and 13 of the latter.
"TNT has enjoyed tremendous success on Sunday and Monday nights with 'Leverage,' 'The Closer' and 'Rizzoli & Isles,' " said Michael Wright, executive vp and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies. "All three shows feature terrific casts, sharp writing and top-notch production teams."

Variety reports that Josh Hutcherson will topline and executive produce the teen horror-comedy film DETENTION.
The movie, which also stars Dane Cook, marks the second feature for helmer Joseph Kahn (Torque), who is best known for directing hit music videos such as Eminem's "Without Me."
The story centers on teens who must survive their final year of high school. Standing in their way is a slasher-movie killer who has seemingly come to life. Kahn and Mark Palermo wrote the script.
Hutcherson will shoot the $10 million DETENTION in Los Angeles next month before seguing to New Line sequel JOURNEY TO THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND in October.

Henry Cavill ("The Tudors", upcoming Immortals) will star in THE COLD LIGHT OF DAY, a kidnapping thriller from Intrepid Pictures and Summit, reports Heat Vision.
Mabrouk El Mechri (JCVD) is directing with Intrepid principals Trevor Macy and Marc D. Evans producing. The trade says "the story centers on a cocky young Wall Street trader who reluctantly vacations with his family in Spain. When his family is kidnapped, he is thrust into a government conspiracy and must unravel his father's darkest secret in order to save his loved ones."
Richard Price is writing a production pass on the original script written by Scott Wiper and John Petro. Filming starts on September 6 in Spain.

Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, two of the most popular Looney Tunes characters of all time, are returning to the big screen in three all-new animated 3D shorts. The studio will attach the cartoon shorts to three of its upcoming family features—all three features to be released this year in 3D. The first short will be seen with CATS & DOGS: THE REVENGE OF KITTY GALORE on July 30th; the second with LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS: THE OWLS OF GA'HOOLE, on September 24th; and the third with YOGI BEAR, on December 17th. The announcement was made today by Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. Pictures President of Domestic Distribution.
In the new cartoon shorts, each three minutes in length, Wile E. Coyote is as determined as ever to catch the elusive Road Runner, who continues to leave his hapless nemesis in the dust with a taunting "beep-beep." However, bringing the classic characters into the 21st century, the resourceful Wile E. will now be employing an arsenal of state-of-the-art ACME gadgets to snag his quarry—with all of the action in stereographic 3D.
In making the announcement, Fellman said, "Audiences have always delighted in Wile E. Coyote's dogged pursuit of the Road Runner, with hilarious, albeit predictable, results. We are thrilled to be presenting these characters for the first time in 3D, which will heighten the excitement and humor of the chase, not to mention the impact—at least for Wile E. We're sure these three new adventures will entertain a new generation of fans while reminding us all why these two characters have been beloved for so long."
The shorts will act as a lead-up to a new 26-episode half-hour series called "The Looney Tunes Show," which will air on Cartoon Network this fall featuring Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck as roommates with the other classic Looney Tunes cartoon characters as their neighbors.

Marc N. Kleinhenz has begun a series of interviews of the cast of BABYLON 5, one of the landmark television shows in American history. Look back with them as they discuss their characters, their emotional evolution, and their participation in television history.

Pat Tallman at:

Me, Sandra Bruckner:

Here are a few reports from JMS' presentations at Comic-Con:

I know a lot of you are already on FaceBook. However, I don't know if you knew how many other Babylon 5 folks have taken the plunge and opened FaceBook accounts. In fact, Pat Tallman has reopened her Fan Club using FaceBook at the site. For a peek, go to Claudia Christian has been really active -- sharing pictures of her recent trips and letting us know about upcoming convention activities. J. Michael Straczynski has a FaceBook presence as well. So check it out!


I've taken the leap and started a group over on Facebook. There is a discussion page where we can talk about Babylon 5 and all things science fiction. Be sure to check it out.!/group.php?gid=132854680067759


Bill Mumy has a new CD out. Check it out at:

Also, listen to Bill Mumy's interview on ON SCREEN & BEYOND at

Bill is inviting you to check out his brand new weekly radio show, "THE REAL GOOD RADIO HOUR with your host Bill Mumy". We'll be listening to many different styles of music and learning about those who pioneered them. "The Real Good Radio Hour" will air every Wednesday and Friday at 7 PM both Pacific and Eastern time and can be heard weekly on

Bill has a new place on FaceBook as well There you will find information about some of his new projects, including a graphic novel LOST IN SPACE and a Star Trek novel with Peter David, "The Return of the Worthy."

Here is a quote from J. Michael Straczynski about emotions.
I had this theory that the more important and intimate the emotion, the fewer words are required to express it.

First it's in dating: "Will you go out with me?" Six words.
"Honey, I care for you." Five words.
"You matter to me." Four words.
"I love you." Three words.
"Marry me." Two words.
But what's left? What's the one most important and intimate word you can ever say to somebody? It's "goodbye."

While Andreas Katsulas (G'Kar), Rick (Biggs) and Tim (Choate) are no longer with us, we will not forget their wonderful personalities and talent -- as well as their significant contributions to the BABYLON 5 universe. Be sure to visit In Memory Of for more information about memorial efforts.
Until we met again, in a place where no shadows fall.

Babylon 5 Podcast


Welcome to Show #206!
Tim, Summer and Bret (and the entire B5 fandom) are glad to hear that Jerry Doyle is doing better and recovering well, and can’t help but wonder how similar the situation sounded to Garibaldi’s experience with PsiCorp’s “treatment” facility.
We also discuss the lingering Hollywood accounting shenanigans, and how after all these years, Babylon 5 is still considered by Warner Bros to still be $80 million in the hole after $100 million in costs for all 5 seasons, even though they reported $1 billion in DVD sales and other earnings.
Source: 11 biggest sci-fi blockbusters that still managed to LOSE money
Inquiring fans want to see the mathematical proofs, and to get those equations vetted by top mathematics and economics professionals. And where are the bulldog representatives for the creative talent in Hollywood? A-List actors and directors aren’t the only ones who are due fair compensation for their work… writers, producers and crew work just as hard, if not harder (Summer’s a writer and producer… can you tell this is a hot button for her?)
Discussion: This episode is all about the surprises we experienced while watching Babylon 5, both the very first time, and the subtle new things discovered on subsequent viewings.
Emails: Seems the Triluminary discussion from Show #204 struck up a rather deep analysis and dialogue!
John in Jersey puts forth his theory on what exactly the Triluminary was really reacting to (was it reacting to Minari souls in humans, or human DNA in Minbari?); Jim Stiles thinks the Triluminary was scanning for junk DNA markers common to both Minbari and humans; James agrees with Bret that the soul transfer argument was religious caste hand-waving, and there’s a genetic component that it’s reacting to.
Summer posits that maybe Valen wasn’t a human fully transformed into a Minbari, but was a human-Minbari hybrid just like Delenn transformed into. Having them both be hybrids answers some of the questions recently brought up by our insatiable curiosity. Thoughts?
Ernestine from New Jersey comments on the theory that Morden would be an excellent lover, but has concerns about his ever-present hidden surveillance, and she also comments on the Days of Our Lives-B5 crossover data points.
Submitting your own Feedback: If you have any suggestions or comments, please let us know! Call 206-338-2259, or just email us a comment you’ve recorded yourself!
Lurker’s Guide 2.0: Summer is starting a push to get Lurker’s Guide 2.0 completed and finished, including missing collectibles, photos of magazine covers and toys, and all sorts of other B5 goodies that didn’t get included in the original guide during the years after Crusade. Let her know if you want to lend a hand.
More Parody/Filk Songs Wanted: If you know of any more B5-related fan songs out there, definitely let us know, so we can let other B5 fans know where to buy them! And if those CDs are out of print, let’s brainstorm on ways to get those songs back out there for fans!
Second Life Info: FarPoint Media’s Second Life space can be found on the Third Life Books island in the Wind River Territory. Find the island here:
Babylon 5 Information Gathering: If you know of a dead or abandoned B5 related website that may be in need of a new home, let Summer know! Maybe we can mirror it here or house it on a sister site.
If you can, Please Donate to the show!

Audiences will love Emmy® Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Seinfeld) as Christine Campbell in the third season of this hilarious ensemble comedy.
Life gets even more complicated for Christine in season three when she recognizes that her ex-husband, Richard (Clark Gregg - Ironman), has moved on with his life and his impossible-to-hate new girlfriend, aptly named New Christine (Emily Rutherford - Van Wilder). While successfully juggling the daily stresses of motherhood and owning a woman's gym with her best friend, Barb (Wanda Sykes - The Wanda Sykes Show, Curb Your Enthusiasm), "Old" Christine realizes it may be time to move on with her love life as well. Things get steamy for Christine as she embraces a romantic relationship with Mr. Harris (recurring guest star Blair Underwood - Dirty Sexy Money, Something New, L.A. Law), a teacher at her son Ritchie's school. Will Old Christine finally find new love?

Clash of the Titans CLASH OF THE TITANS
Release date: July 27, 2010
Official website:

In Clash of the Titans, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, Perseus and his warriors will only survive if Perseus accepts his power as a god, defies fate and creates his own destiny.

Video Clips

I really didn't know what to expect from this movie. The reviews were mixed and like most remakes, CLASH OF THE TITANS will always be compared to the one before -- in this case the 1981 version starring Harry Hamlin as Perseus. This version is a more realistic Bronze age world, but the story hasn`t changed all that much. The citizens of Argos have become disenchanted with the rule of the Gods. The Gods have caused too much chaos and ruin to their lives so they've decided to take their destinies into their own hands, and destroy the temples and statues of the Gods. In doing so, Perseus'(Sam Worthington) family is killed by a falling statue of Zeus. When Zeus (Liam Neeson) learns of the desecration urged on by Hades (Ralph Fiennes), he decides to destroy the city in four days or they can offer the sacrifice of the King of Argos' daughter Andromeda (Alexa Davalos). In a visit to the throne room of Argos, Hades tells Perseus he is a son of Zeus, a demi-god. Being told of his near divinity, Perseus and a group of soldiers go off on their quest to save the city.
The advances in special effects are very evident in this movie. They are great! The monsters look real and the characters realistically interact with them. The giant scorpions look deadly, Medusa is creepy, and the Kraken is HUGE. I sort of had a flashback to STAR WARS as I watched the heroes riding the scorpions with the help of a tribe of warriors made of stone. The photography is awesome. The special features are wonderful as well. You follow the crew as they build the ships and sets. This project became a labor of love for everyone. This is a good adventure movie everyone should enjoy.

Release date: July 20, 2010

ER: The Complete 13th Season ER: THE COMPLETE 13th SEASON
Release date: July 6, 2010

Shaking things up: Former paramedic, now intern Dr. Tony Gates arrives with a straightforward attitude and a complicated personal life. Except for his devotion to healing, he’s Gallant’s opposite: brash, cocksure, with a bad-boy past – and maybe he’s the right prescription for Neela’s broken heart. Really shaking things up: Contentious Weaver leaves County General for a career move you wouldn’t expect. And the profound dramas of the outside world continue to make their way to the ER, including a hostile patient whose real condition is a secret even to himself, homeless children who escape to a magic world of their own making, and a Christmas miracle. Then again, miracles happen every day at County General.

This series just keeps going and going. This season opens with trama in the ER -- both patients and doctors are affected. The drama builds as Abby has her baby and Sam is kidnapped by her ex-husband. Each episode of the series is filled not only with your usual hospital drama, but deep charcterizations that have made this series a favorite for years. Even if you haven't been following the series for years, you can enjoy the well-written episodes that involve some very good segments showing surgery and trama medicine, but you'll quickly get caught up in the personal lives of the staff at County General. This season includes guest appearances from Forrest Whitaker, who received an emmy nomination for his role as Curtis Ames, a former patient of Dr. Kovac who sues him for malpractice.

Release date: July 6, 2010 exclusively online at and

DARK BLUE (from iconic producer Jerry Bruckheimer and starring Golden Globe® winner Dylan McDermott) is the story of Lt. Carter Shaw (McDermott) and his special undercover task force that tread the line between right and wrong to bring down a criminal underworld.
Experience each heart-stopping moment again or for the first time with the release of SEASON 1 on DVD before the start of the all-new DARK BLUE Season 2, August 4 only on TNT.

If you are looking for a good, tight, gritty police drama, look no further than DARK BLUE. From the pilot onward, you get a little information on each of the main characters -- just enough to keep you watching! Dylan McDermott is an awesome actor and he fits the persona outlined for Lt. Carter Shaw. In the pilot, one of the main characters says, he will do anthing to protect you and anything to get the bad guy. It's just hard figuring out which one comes first."
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, you get that feel of realism and you are on the edge of your seat with each episode. There is a good bit of violence, so it may be a bit much for some. But the violence fits the feel of this cable TV show -- dark and hard. I can't wait to see what season two brings.

Release date: June 29, 2010

At work, L.A. Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson is a woman in charge. Got a suspect to grill, a case to crack, a murderer about to walk? Call Brenda in and watch the fireworks. But at home...well, that's another story. Kyra Sedgwick headlines a sizzling 4-disc, 15-episode Season 5 of the series that combines heart, humor and homicide into a show that's equally compelling as a police procedural and a personal drama. As a cop, Brenda takes on everything from a corpse that comes COD to a serial killer to Sharon Raydor, an internal affairs officer as tough as she is. As a civilian, Brenda loses one family member (bye, Kitty) and gains another: her surly niece Charlie. Brenda can outsmart, outmaneuver and out a killer. But can she handle a teenager?

Here's a video clip from this outstanding series:

How the Earth Changed History HOW THE EARTH CHANGED HISTORY
Release: June 29, 2010

Product Description:
The traditional interpretation of history has focused largely on human factors. Yet the natural environment has also shaped history since the dawn of time. This series reveals for the first time on television how geology, geography and climate have had a far more powerful influence on mankind than has previously been acknowledged. With passionate storytelling and extraordinary HD camerawork, this series combines bold ideas with a new science, geo-determinism, to form an original version of human history. Discover why societies have succeeded or failed, and how the environment has influenced every aspect of our history from art to industry, religion to war, world domination or collapse. This series overturns preconceptions about our nations and our cultures to offer a new perspective on who we are today.

Iain Stewart takes you on a journey to some of the most remote parts on the Earth. The journey is divided into water, deep earth, wind and fire. Each segment will show how these elements have affected history on Earth. Water, or the lack of it in places like the Sahara Desert, has shifted the balance of power. He traces how ancient people tried to manage water and how water affected the economy as well as culture of civilization.
BBC has done an awesome job on this DVD. The photography is amaing. You follow Stewart as he ventures underwater to see where caves lead; down caverns and caves to see how ancient civilizations built tunnels to manage water. Ever wonder about the faults of the Earth? You will learn all about them and see how they have been dealt with from ancient times. A very educational -- and entertaining -- DVD.

Release date: June 15, 2010
Official website:

This season, love is in the clear mountain air of Everwood. Back from a troubled summer at Juilliard, Ephram commits himself to his music and to Amy. Andy is drawn to a patient’s wife – and into an ethical dilemma. Dr. Jake Hartman moves to town and starts eating a lot of pancakes, as long as Nina’s serving ’em up. And mousey Hannah Rogers flips over Bright. But don’t expect love to conquer all, especially when the secret Andy kept from Ephram last season comes spilling out. Suddenly, trust is destroyed, lives are turned upside down and the bonds of love – romantic and father-son – are stretched to the breaking point. Andy wanted Everwood to be his family’s home. Now it may be just another place they used to live.

I loved this series from the very first episode. When we got to Season Three, there were moments of "soap opera" stories, but because the characters were so well developed, you wanted to see how things would work out. When new characters were introduced, like Jake Hartman, you want Nina to be happy, but you know she loves Andy and hope he realizes his feelings for her before it is too late!


Looking for movies you can watch with your children? I have moved many of the family-oriented DVDs to a Family DVDs page. Here you will find wonderful DVDs you can enjoy with your entire family -- no matter the age. You will find background information about the DVD, but there are clips as well from Warner Bros. Enjoy!

Babylon 5


I found this message on the Babylon 5 moderated newsgroup this morning and just had to post it so that others might enjoy the marvelous music videos created by John Hudgens.

As some of you may know, I was hired by Joe Straczynski back in the day to create Babylon 5 music videos for him to use at science fiction conventions, and later to promote the show to networks. Eight were produced over the run of the series, not including the memorial videos I did later for Rick Biggs and Andreas Katsulas.

For the longest time, the only way to see these was if Joe or I showed them at a convention, but now, after numerous requests from fans over the years, Joe has given me permission me to post these online.

For those of you who've never seen these, I hope you enjoy them - and for those that have (and emailed me many times over the years about releasing them), I hope they're as good as you remember. Working with Joe on these videos was one of the highlights of my career, and I'll be forever grateful to him for the doors these have opened for me. I'm proud to have them on my resume.
