Our unlikely trio's strange partnership begins as they investigate the mysterious death of a woman who conceives, carries to full-term and births a baby in the span of hours, and her baby who ages 80 years in a matter of minutes. As the bizarre and seemingly unexplainable occurrences are explored, quirky Dr. Bishop runs extensive testing in the lab; his reluctant son Peter endures his new role as his father's keeper; and Olivia turns to Massive Dynamic Chief Operating Officer Nina Sharp for assistance.[Fringe Bloggers] And here's a new commercial. [Fringe Television] Eleventh Hour: Here's a new trailer for the Jerry Bruckheimer stop-the-mad-science show: Heroes: Producer/director Allan Arkush dropped a few new Heroes spoilers. Just like her dad, Claire will have an unexpected partner. (Her dad, of course, will work with Sylar.) Something unmentionable will happen to Suresh by the eighth episode. At some point during the season, all of the heroes will lose their powers. Characters you'd never expect are coming back. And the eighth episode will consist of previously unshown scenes from the pilot, six months ago, and one other episode. [Heroes Television] And it sounds like it's just one episode where everybody loses their powers temporarily. [E! Online] The first five episodes of the season will be called "The Second Coming," "The Butterfly Effect," "One of Us One of Them," "I Am Become Death," and "Angels and Monsters". That weird symbol that appears on Hiro's sword? Has a super-secret origin, but it's meant to be a "half-helix," and the Pinehurst Corp.'s logo is two of those half-helixes put together. And in season seven, when the aliens invade, we'll see the full helix symbol, says producer Joe Pokaski. [Heroes Spoilers] And here are a few more pics of Elle and HRG at Primatech Paper. Looks like HRG is giving Elle some fatherly advice. In another scene, Elle is on the street at night and she runs to the Primatech paper van. [Heroes Spoilers]
Smallville: Finally we get the first official trailer for the season opener. It seriously looks like a fan film to me, and not one of the good ones. [Operation Save Clark Kent]
Star Wars: Clone Wars: The Star Wars animated series showed an entire episode at Dragoncon. Yoda and three clone troopers travel to the planet Toydaria (really??) to negotiate a treaty, but wind up facing off against Asajj Ventress and a buttload of droids. Will they get off Toydaria alive? [TheForce.net] Stargate Atlantis: Here are some stills from the 13th episode of the final Atlantis season, "Outsiders." [SpoilerTV]
Here's a synopsis for episode 19, "Las Vegas":
When another body turns up in the desert outside of Las Vegas, Nevada, Detective John Sheppard is called in to investigate. Sheppard is a homicide detective, but the murderer he has to hunt down now is unlike anyone — or any thing — he has ever seen. Sheppard tries to dodge a news reporter when he arrives at the crime scene. The reporter suggests that, if this victim is like the others, the city may have a serial killer on its hands. The local authorities have already arrived, and show Sheppard the body: it looks as if the man had the life sucked out of him. At Detective Sheppard's office, Captain Lopez introduces him to someone who will aid him in his investigation: Agent Woolsey of the F.B.I. Elsewhere, in a cheap motel, a very ill, middle-aged businessman throws up. To make life worse, his neighbor is blaring heavy metal music. The man collects himself and goes over to pound on the door. He's shocked by what he sees when the door opens. A Wraith hand reaches out to feed.[SpoilerTV] Sarah Connor Chronicles: The second episode of the new season is now called "Automatic For The People," and here's a synopsis: "Sarah and Cameron investigate a nuclear power plant; John grows less enthusiastic about academics, but flourishes socially with the help of a new friend; Catherine Weaver gets another piece of the puzzle for her pet project." [SpoilerTV] Knight Rider: We'll learn more of the backstory of the new KITT throughout the new series, says producer Gary Scott Thompson:
Each episode is geared towards some sort of lesson but as much as Kitt learns from our humans, they are learning from him. Kitt is an artificial being which means he has no emotions. A big part of season one is going to be why Kitt is here with this group, why is he learning, and why is an artificial intelligence in this car. There is a bigger mythology to it and what I wanted to do was bring some from the original and update it. It's been 25 years since Knight Industries was seen so what's happened to them and where have they gone?[Newsarama] Additional reporting by Lauren Davis.
