In retrospect this has been a productive week with some tv news, the return of True Blood and some good reading.
I expect a busy four days this week but then it’s off to holiday for five weeks, last day is Thursday. I hope to give you at least a post per day up until then.
In an almost unprecedented move AMC put the whole first episode of their new conspiracy series Rubicon online (you might want to watch it, it looks promising), it premiere August 1.
ABC’s new Series The Gates premieres later tonight, expect a review on Tuesday June 22. You can watch the first 17-18 minutes here.
HBO also showed the first video (short) for their upcoming fantasy series Games of Thrones and a the first poster of Ned Stark.
This week’s Female Protagonists on SF TV was Æon Flux on Æon Flux. I am one of the few people I know that liked the movie. The cartoons on MTV was great too.
True Blood a Review of the 3rd Season Premiere might also interest.
New Series by David Weber – Out of the Dark – Cover Art & Blurb I still can’t decide if I should be appalled that David Weber jumped on the Vampire bandwagon or delighted with another new series from an author I love.

- Friday Jones – the Sometimes Single Cyborg
- Esmay Suiza – Landsbride Officer
- Gloria VanDeen – Glorious Bureaucrat
