DVD Sets, A Convention, and Genre TV

Panzer Davis still has not told me whether my services will be needed at the Creation Xena Convention this month. If they say yes, then I will be there. I have gotten no other offers to show up (party & dinner invites, oh how it sucks no longer being popular), so there is a good chance I might not be at the convention this year. They have pushed forward the release date of the 3rd season Xena DVDs from January 13th to February 10th. Right after the convention. I advised them to have a release date at the start of the convention and they could make a killing on selling those DVDs, but do they listen to me? NO! Oh well.

Of the shows we are covering this season, Tarzan is dead; Karen Cisco is on hiatus until March and looks like she too will be dead before the season ends; Alias is still just a cult hit with a minimal audience, but most are hoping it will earn another season renewal; Tru Calling is getting the support Karen Cisco deserves, but the jury is still out whether it will get a renewal for a second season; and All My Children's Lena and Bianca snuck in a 2nd kiss when no one was watching for New Year's Eve.

The highlight of my genre month was the DVD set of Firefly. The show came off much better watching it in its proper order and it was well worth its price.

It is New Year's Day and I have a cold. I have been entertaining myself by getting the new issue of Whoosh on-line and watching the week old tapes of All My Children that I have been stockpiling. Oh no! Juan Pablo's car just blew up! Well, got to get back to lots of rest, liquids, and daytime drama.

See you next month!
