You've had a busy week. So we want you to sit back, put your feet up and enjoy a big bowl full of the hottest stories and the best comments of the week. Today we highlight such gems from the past seven days as the bloody, naked True Blood cast; Jewel Staite's new Blastr blog and new pics from Captain America and Harry Potter.
Your best comment: Mal and Jayne vs. Shepherd and Ronan? Seriously? That could be the next Enterprise vs. Star Destroyer debate of the Internet. My money is on the men who would cheat, lay traps, sabotage the enemy, and run away if the fight doesn't go their way.— Sean
Your best comment: I don't understand why people think the Dumbledore thing was a stunt. When I read the last book, I thought Dumbledore's relationship with Grindelwald was pretty clearly subtextually gay. There are LOTS of hints throughout the series, and that relationship from his youth solidified it. I wasn't surprised by the news, because the evidence was all there, it just wasn't explicit. Gay characters are often a bit coded in order to get by. Can you imagine the conservative parent outcry if J.K. had told everyone before the books were done? But she knew he was gay, she wrote him gay, and you're kidding yourself if you think her answering someone's question at a reading was a way of trying to start a "publicity stunt." Trust me, J.K. is doing well for herself without it. — Blake
Your best comment: It looks like Demi Moore's "pregnant" cover for Vanity Fair, but smeared in the afterbirth.
Makes you yearn to be the filling in a vampire sandwich though. — Valeris
Your best comment: Shatnaphobia: The often clinically warrented fear that somehow, somewhere, Shatner is watching you. — Argo
Your best comment: I was at the convention in Orlando this past weekend and at the Mark Hamill interview they asked him about the scene. He said that he had just been shown the scene for the first time recently and now remembers having shot it. — Wesley
Your best comment: My thought was they were looking to replace Shatner by dividing his role in half. Shatner brought the same kind on presence Stewart has and Frakes was brought on to be the dashing lady killer. I dont believe they ever thought Stewart would be popular with the ladies and yet it turned out he was. — kenel thai
Your best comment: What kind of pansy tank needs a rain coat? — Jahooba
Your best comment: This is a bad idea. Ever since seeing the very first Terminator movies in the 80s what I've been passionately wanting is a movie set in the future with what's left of humanity fighting a "Stalingrad" type battle for survival in the ruins of Las Angeles. We got a few glimpses of that in TSCC but no where near enough to "hit the main vein." How hard could it be to make this happen? — Jeff77042
Your best comment: Further evidence that it's impossible to look cool while riding in a sidecar. :) — Tom Black
Your best comment: Some great sci-fi shows aren't even given the opportunity to "go bad." Seems that some networks go through the tried and true (read: boring) formula for many shows these days. Unless it has "pew pew" and grabs the attention of xx million viewers in the fast few weeks it's considered for cancellation.
They need to focus on allowing the shows with promise to to build their fan base over time instead of splicing together old mind-numbing concepts hoping they're the next big thing. Some of us really want an intelligent series like *Defying Gravity* instead of rehashed crap. — MickeyB
Your best comment: I always felt from day one that a really puzzling concept of the show was that even though Hiro was such a mega-fan of Star trek, due to numerous references from him, however he NEVER once said (in English or Japanese) "hey guys, my dad is the spitting image of Mr Sulu!" — Chewie 68
Your best comment: I feel bad every time I read a story about this guy. We all hated him as Wesley and he's taken it all in stride and offered nothing but kindness and respect back. He's a total class act and he should be rewarded with more sci-fi roles. — Maltheus
