io9.com:

The Cape, starring Dave Lyons (NBC)

Official synopsis: Lyons [plays] Vince Faraday, an honest cop on a corrupt police force, who finds himself framed for a series of murders and presumed dead. He is forced into hiding, leaving behind his wife, Dana (Jennifer Ferrin, “Life on Mars”) and son, Trip (Ryan Wynott, “Flash Forward”).

Fringe Is Becoming The Show That Lost Wishes It Could Be

io9.com: J.J. Abrams has unleashed two television shows about faith and science and strange reflections of reality. Fringe will never be as popular as Lost, but it has the potential to be far greater, as it proved last night. Spoilers below…

Thing is, I still love Lost a lot, and I’m still clinging to hope that the whole “two thousand years of sibling rivalry” storyline culminates in something amazing. But I can’t remember the last time Lost made me feel quite as exhilarated as last night’s Fringe. Maybe it was partly because Fringe managed to work so many character beats and emotional moments into an hour, it felt like enough drama for ten Lost episodes. Or maybe it was because of the episode’s loopy twists and turns, which kept knocking me off balance.

6 amazing sci-fi TV shows ruined by their freaky finales

scifiwire.com: Like a spreading bowel infection, the end of a sci-fi TV series can fatally infect every previous episode. This happens when a finale retcons the mythos in such a way that every episode in the series is negatively affected. Watching cherished episodes becomes a sickening reminder of the final truth, like looking at your family photos after learning that your grandmother is a seven-headed alien who snatched your parents at birth.

Quantum Leap

The Show:
Dr. Sam Beckett leaps into some unwilling fool’s troubled past to fix their future. Dr. Sam prays to the cruel deity that spun him into this body-snatching roulette wheel, hoping against hope that his next leap will be the leap home.

The Ending:
After the finale ends, the narrator pisses all over our hopes and dreams by telling us that he never gets home.

I sure would want Faraday’s journal and Charlie’s DS ring!  What would you like to have from those props? What other prop that isn’t in that list would you like?

Heroes canceled (wow), Smallville back for more (yay). I must admit that I didn’t watch the last season of Heroes, some of my favorite characters got killed and things changed. As for Smallville I’m still loyal to it. I just want Superman and Lois to get together. 😉
