Virtuality - Reviewed

Virtuality is FOX's new Sci-Fi drama that's a TV show within a TV show. The best way to describe it is MTV's Real World meets outer space.

Just look at the crew and compare them to a Real World cast. There is an interracial couple, a gay couple, a couple in a solid relationship that now faces the challenge of one member cheating, and two semi hot chicks that have a love/hate relationship.

There is also the video confessionals, which was the Real World's trademark.

Now there were a couple of moments where potential was shown. Okay so really just the beginning and end, with maybe one or two moments in the middle.

The only member of the crew that was tolerable throughout the entire show was Capt. Frank Pike, and he unfortunately didn't survive. Well at least not in reality.

The worst part was FOX's cheap plug of their network throughout the entire episode. It actually got quite annoying.

Being a Sci-Fi series on FOX, we don't count on Virtuality being around very long. Hopefully we can get a little more of the story before the inevitable happens. - GJ

Live Action Akira Is No Go

Akira has joined a growing list of manga/anime that will not be adapted to live action.

For many this is actually great news; the manga was a great success, and there were fears that this would just turn into another Hollywood flop. -GJ

Futurama - It's Back Baby...Again!

After the "success" of four straight to DVD movies, Comedy Central has renewed the show by ordering twenty-six (26) episodes.

There are doubts about this being a successful move, but if the writers go back to their original style, and leave the Family Guy poop jokes alone (unlike the movies), everything should be OK. If not well at least we got something. - GJ

Our Smallville Ideas

Eight seasons, several sexy heroines and countless villains later, what more could Smallville offer viewers to keep them coming back. Well we have some suggestions.

1. A Darker Story Arc
The last time we saw Clark Kent he showed us that he has become angry with himself, and maybe ready to finally admit that not everyone contains good or caring qualities and he may in fact have to sacrifice one in order to save hundreds.

2. Darkseid
The conclusion of season eight ended with the arrival of a mysterious figure, our hopes is this figure will be revealed as the villain Darkseid. To learn more about Darkseid you can read his Wikipedia page.

3. The Caped Crusader Himself - BATMAN
Do we really need to say more. This show will go at least nine seasons, and with the way the economy is there is no guarantee for more, so why not give fans what they really want, the two biggest DC heros Batman and Superman together in one place.
We could honestly settle for Bruce Wayne simply making a business trip to Metropolis; maybe to discuss possibly purchasing Luthor Corp from Oliver. Just a suggestion.

Have a suggestion of what you'd like to see, well leave us a comment. - GJ

Star Wars - Old Republic E3 Trailer

A lot of great looking games have been seen at E3 2009, but Star Wars Old Republic left us breathless.

This game, along with the upcoming novel "Death Troopers" (Oct. '09), could be taking the Star Wars universe down a more darker, adult themed path; and we can't wait.

Enjoy the trailer and let us know what you think. - GJ
