News & Link roundup

A handful of things I found interesting in my RSS Reader this morning.

The first is that the new Star Trek script is done, and shooting is scheduled for the fall. As for the rumors of Matt Damon as Kirk-they were neither confirmed nor denied.

Secondly, Stargate Atlantis is going through a number of changes for season four. They're lost a couple of cast members, but what I found most interesting is gaining Amanda Tapping, who reprises her role as Samantha Carter. While I like the fact that this character isn't just disappearing into character limbo, I have to wonder about what this will do for Tapping's career. She's been Carter for a decade now, for 10 seasons of SG-1. That has to do some serious type-casting on her. But, I've got to admit, she plays the part well.

Anyways, the new season of Eureka should be starting soon, and I can't wait for that. Frankly,
Eureka was the only non-animated show that I watched the whole season of in the past few years. I loved Heroes, but still failed to watch the final half dozen or so shows.

Ah well, I guess it's time to start thinking about which game I want to rent for my Wii next.

I wouldn't worry about Amanda Tapping being typecast. She is also starring in a new show called Sanctuary and that role is sooooooooo not Carter!! It's brilliant actually.
