Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen:
OMG toy spoilers! Some guy got hold of an action figure for Scrapper/Dirtboss, the Transformer that turns into a forklift. And here's his review (skip the first two minutes of him ranting about something or other). [TFW2005]
Land Of The Lost:
Here's new poster for the crazay Will Ferrell vehicle. (Bigger and non-cropped image at link.) [Cinematical]
And here's a psychedelic poster for the Heroes-esque movie, which opens February. [Filmofilia]
The revelation of the final Cylon will be a let-down, Ron Moore promises:
It will never be as powerful as the build-up. I resigned myself to that a long time ago. The "Who Shot JR" of it all is an instructive lesson: No matter who it is, it's still going to be a bit of a letdown. But I decided that precisely because of that, it wasn't going to be in the final episode. I didn't want that to become the entire series. I'm sure there will be a variety of reactions. Some people will love it, some people will hate it. But I think when you see how the revelation fits into the overall mythology of the show, when all the questions are answered by the end, then it'll make sense and you'll think, "Oh, well it kind of had to be that person."
Meanwhile, Tahmoh Penikett hints that Helo dies at the end of BSG. At least, he says letting Helo live would be "kind of predictable," and he said a couple months ago that he had talked Moore out of doing the predicatable thing with Helo. Hmm. There will definitely be some loose ends at the end of the show, Penikett adds. [E! Online]
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles:
You might have noticed daddy Kyle Reese in the trailer that aired after the last episode. Apparently, Kyle plays a big role in the next episode, airing Feb. 14, but won't be a series regular after that. [E! Online]

Also, there are incredibly blurry photos of some filming on "Hurley's golf course," including some Dharma people and Sawyer. The photographer writes, "I also got to see hurley jack kate." (Do you think "jack" is a verb or a name there?) [SpoilersLost]
Finally, at the tail end of a Carlton/Damon video, there were screencaps showing two new characters, Caesar and Ilana. [The ODI]
So we weren't the only ones confused about that Sylar-related spoiler the other day. Turns out Sylar is only on a quest for his real parents, not his powers. Sylar has lost his powers (for the second time), but he'll get them back before too long. Phew, that's a relief. [E! Online]
Also, Adam/Kensei is really, really, really, reaaaaallly dead. [TV Guide]
A new trailer you might not have seen:
Screw Maxima and the Legion — in episode 8x14, we finally get to meet a crucial figure in the Superman mythos. I'm referring, of course, to jerky reporter/sportscaster Steve Lombard, who'll be played by Ray Galletti. [KryptonSite]
So we mentioned that in the episode "Hex," Chloe gets turned into Lois, and she shared a meaningful look with Clark while in Lois' body. Turns out there's more to it than that. Chloe gets put into Lois' body because she wishes she had Lois' "easy" life, and a magician (Zatanna, probably) grants her wish. At the end of the episode, Chloe comes to an epiphany. And Clark gets a wish too. (To make people forget him revealing his true identity? Or something else?) [TV Guide]
And here's a new trailer for the next episode, "Legion." [OSCK]
If you're sad about the amount of screentime Jared Padalecki has gotten lately, rejoice. The next two episodes are equal parts Sam and Dean, and then the third episode features tons of emotional upheaval for both teen Sam and grown-up Sam. [TV Guide]
Good news for everyone who's tired of Rufus Sewell's two-note performance. He gets a third note in "H2O," the Jan. 16 episode: psycho! "An epidemic of sudden, violent outbursts by law-abiding citizens draws Dr. Jacob Hood to a quiet Texas community to investigate - but he soon succumbs to the same erratic behavior." [SpoilerTV]
