WEBSTM44-Exclusives

Here’s two brand new shots from the set of J. J. Abrams’ Star Trek 2.   Although they don’t tell us much about the new movie.  The photo above does suggest that Benedict Cumberbatch is playing a Star Fleet officer, because he’s wearing a black Star Fleet tunic under his jacket.  And he appears to be vulnerable to the Vulcan neck pinch.  Yup, we know, not much to go on.

Ratings for “Alcatraz” Continue to Fall!

Posted in Ghosts, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror, Television with tags , , , , , , , on February 21, 2012 by ghostradioworld

After its strongish premiere, the ratings for for Fox’s  “Alcatraz” have fallen every week.  And this week that fall pushed it further below 2.0 rating barrier, only receiving a 1.8 rating with the critical 18-49 demo.  It’s generally felt once ratings fall below 2.0 that show could be cancelled at any time.   This is the second week below that number.

Gay Character in Next STAR TREK Movie?

Posted in Movies, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror, Television with tags , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2011 by ghostradioworld

J. J. Abrams was asked by Afterelton if he’d put any thought into adding a gay character to the next “Star Trek” film.  He responded:

… that it is, you know, something that I would love to do …

But he quickly tossed in a bunch of caveats:

… but just the way I would be careful doing a story that would involve any of the characters and their personal lives. The balance is always, what how does that story relate to sort of the bad guy, which by the way is always going to be that critical thing, what are they up against? The question how do you get into literally these are personal sexual lives of these characters? Like what is that going to be about.

In short, it looks unlikely that J.J. will put a gay character in the flick.  We always thought “Star Trek” would be the first major sci-fi franchise to feature a continuing gay or bi character.  But “Doctor Who” now holds that prize with Captain Jack Harkness.  Who also became the first gay or bi main character in a sci-fi show, when “Torchwood” was launched in 2006.
