SGU breaks open the space drama we’ve been waiting for

We finally cracked open all the drama each character has been carrying around for weeks.

Spoilers ahead…

Eli’s mom has come down with a bad case of the television malady “losing the strength to live.” You remember this disease from such classics as the third Star Wars prequel, or Rent. Is can’t-go-on-itis lame. Yes — but at least it meant we got to hang out more with Eli, and watch him unravel as his mother goes down the tubes.

Posey: ‘New Teen Wolf different to film’

Posey told Collider: “It thought it was awesome that they were redoing [Teen Wolf] but I wasn’t expecting what I read from the script.”

He explained: “In the movie, Michael J. Fox’s character… already had the werewolf DNA in his blood. Whereas on the TV show, I’m bit [by a creature]. It’s a lot darker than the movie. [Also] the sport [I play] isn’t basketball, it’s lacrosse.”

However, the actor insisted that fans of the film will still enjoy the new television remake.

“I think for the people who know the movie and hear of Teen Wolf on MTV, there’s going to be some weird stuff going through their heads,” he admitted. “But I think that anyone, fan of the movie or not, will love this show.”

It’s not a big surprise that The CW has a soft spot for author L.J. Smith. After all, she gave the network one of their biggest hits, “The Vampire Diaries,” based off of her series of the same name. (Not to mention the show also gave us the beautiful trio of Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley!) The CW is heading back to L.J.’s works, this time adapting her series “Secret Circle, Vulture reports.

The “Secret Circle” series follows 16-year-old Cassie, who moves from California to live with her mom in New Salem and falls in love with a mysterious boy named Adam.

I enjoyed The Secret Circle Series. And it doesn’t surprise me that the CW will adapt it considering their success with Vampire Diaries. Do you think it will be a successful series? Why or why not?
