OMG spoilers! Terminator 4! Transformers and Dragonball pics! A new side of Gaeta from BSG season 4.5! Doctor Who and Lost hints! Plus Heroes, Sarah-Connor, Smallville, Spirit, Stargate, Life On Mars and Knight Rider.
Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen:
Toy spoilers! That blue Chevy Volt in the movie? Is a Transformer named Jolt. He comes with "electro whips," which make him almost unstoppable. "He is chaotic and impulsive, always out for the next big adventure." [Transformers Live]
Meanwhile, Tyrese Gibson says his character has been promoted to Master Sergeant in the new movie. "I am bringing on more air strikes. Michael Bay beefed up my presence in this sequel." [Transformers Live again]
Here's a new pic of Bulma and Goku that appeared at an event called Jump Festa. [DBtheMovie]
So maybe I'm the only person who doesn't know this, but apparently one of the changes in Frank Miller's movie version of Will Eisner's comic is that Miller gives the eponymous Spirit a super-power: the Spirit has a healing factor, like Wolverine, that lets him recover from almost any wound. [Newsday]
Here's a new clip that popped up on the BSG "You Will Know The Truth" site. Gaeta is definitely getting to show more sides of his personality these days. Do you think the "people will know who I am thing" is meant to point to him as the final Cylon, or is it another red herring? And what does Felix have against disabled people anyway? [YouWillKnowTheTruth via Battlestar Blog]
Comedian John Culshaw toured the set of the Christmas special and interviewed David Tennant. And there's a bit more of that clip from the episode we showed the the other day, where Tennant shouts at the Cybermen that he's the Doctor. (Segment also includes which actors bookies think are in line to play the role. I would love to see Chiwetl Ejiofor as the Doctor!) [Whovian World]
And meanwhile, Dervla Kirwan did an interview on Paul O'Grady. Apparently, the Cyberman follow Miss Hartigan because she has something they want. And she showed a clip from the episode — roughly the scene fans watched being filmed many months ago. [Doctor Who on LJ]
The BBC posted its usual "Fear Forecast" for the episode, including a hint that the Other Doctor describes his regeneration at one point, and you get to hear the Cloister Bell. [Planet Gallifrey]
Eagle-eyed reader Ajax noticed something in the latest trailer: a hooded figure sitting at an old-school Hatch-style computer, with the display saying "Event Window Determined." Does this mean there's a limited window to return to the island? Also is this figure in another Hatch, somewhere off the island? Like L.A.? [Thanks Axel!]
Our sister site Jezebel had a nifty rundown of Lost spoilers over the weekend. [Jezebel]
Terry O'Quinn (Locke) says his favorite scene in the new season so far is one he's shot with Michael Emerson (Ben). Do Locke and Ben meet up in the "present," or is this a flashback? Or something else? [SpoilersLost]
Britain's Sky One interviews the cast. [SpoilersLost]
This spring, we'll see two "significant" female deaths on the show... one of which will be permanent. The other one is "up in the air at the moment." [EW]
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles:
A casting call for two minor characters in episode 19 of the current season. Dr. Martinez, a female Hispanic doctor in her forties, and a rugged UPS delivery man known as Delivery Man #2. (Does that mean there's a Delivery Man #1?) [SpoilerTV]
Here are some pics from the final episode, "Enemy At The Gate." Man, every day is a bad hair day for Amanda Tapping, isn't it? [SpoilerTV]
Here are the official descriptions for episodes 8x11 and 8x12, "Legion" and "Bulletproof":
The aftermath of Doomsday’s (Sam Witwer) attack on Chloe (Allison Mack) and Jimmy’s (Aaron Ashmore) wedding leaves Clark (Tom Welling) in shock, but before he can search for the kidnapped Chloe, The Persuader (guest star Fraser Aithceson) appears and attacks him. Rokk (guest star Ryan Kennedy), Imra (guest star Alexz Johnson) and Garth (guest star Calum Worthy), also known as The Legion, step in from the future to help vanquish the Persuader and the group realizes Brainiac has taken over Chloe once again. Meanwhile, up at the Fortress, Chloe, as Brainiac, informs Davis he is Doomsday and was created to kill “the other Kryptonian” and destroy the world.
Clark (Tom Welling) discovers John Jones (guest star Phil Morris) was shot while working as a police officer, so Clark dons the uniform and goes undercover to find the culprit. Meanwhile, Lana (Kristin Kreuk) confronts Tess (Cassidy Freeman) and tells her Lex isn’t the man she thinks he is. Lana’s shocking news forces Tess to reevaluate her position as the head of Luthorcorp.
