Weekly Journal May 31 – June 6

Thanks for all the positive attention for my impromptu Neal Asher week. It has been a fun week though work has kept me quite busy.

Next week I hope to cover some of the new season on TV. Things are slowing down in the Pilot Watch now, but I expect some casting news for Terra Nova and maybe some from the other shows.

This week’s Formidable Female Protagonists in Science Fiction

  1. Athena Hera Sinastra – Intrepid Rebel
  2. Nell – Mouse Queen
  3. Nicole des Jardins Wakefield – Stowaway to the Stars
  4. Sauscony ‘Soz’ Valdoria –  Empath Commando
  5. Festina Ramos – Expendable

This week’s Female Protagonists on SF TV was Wendy ‘Dub-Dub’ Watson on Middleman. I loved that show, so much fun.
