One promising note about the ABC remake of Life on Mars: Colm Meaney is going to play the old-school DIC. Good casting. I can totally picture him in the role. (Unlike their Sam Tyler, who will be played by Jason O'Mara, who played Stuart the publisher on Men in Trees.)
Roland Emmerich is going to direct a new version of Fantastic Journey written by the people who did National Treasure. I can't decide if this will be a reimagined fun ride of a movie or just lame.
They are making a direct-to-dvd sequel to The Lost Boys with Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, and Keifer Sutherland's younger brother. This is going to be just lame.
Here's an interesting retrospective on Doctor Who as it approaches it's 45th anniversary.
As if American education wasn't bad enough, some high schools are requiring kids to declare a major and career path in 9th grade! One, there is no way they can realistically know what they want to do at that age when getting there is at least 8 years away. Two, they are going to completely ignore the rest of the curriculum. So much for getting a broad base of knowledge before specializing.
