TV News: Meet Jim Rockford

Grey's Anatomy SPOILER



No, that's not Jim Rockford. Keep reading for that news.

What the heck's a Grey's Anatomy spoiler doing at the top of this list? Well, it's also a spoiler for Shonda Rhimes' new, tropical-island medical drama Off the Map and if it's set on a tropical island, I'll cover it. At least until I discover whether or not it sucks.

At any rate, the romance between Ben the anesthesiologist (played by the awesome Jason George above) and the even awesomer Bailey will be short-lived. George is moving to Off the Map to play a different character. The odds of Off the Map's sucking just got a lot longer. [The Ausiello Files]

A dinosaur pilot, your new Nikita and Rockford, and the best way ever to get detention after the break.



Terra Nova



Steven Spielberg's producing a potential TV show about a family from the future that takes its time machine to prehistory and gets stranded there. Actually, the details are more vague than that (particularly about how the family goes back in time), so I may be filling in with some wishful thinking. I also doubt they'll armor up a bunch of dinosaurs and use them to fight each other, but we can hope. [Variety]

Batman: The Brave and the Bold video game



I knew that buying David that Nintendo DS for Christmas was the right thing to do. [Robot 6]

New Avengers cartoon



Speaking of awesome superhero cartoons, Disney's got a new one coming. At least, it looks awesome. Heck, if it's half as entertaining as The Super Hero Squad Show it'll be in the Top Five Superhero Cartoons of All Time. [Robot 6]

Maggie Q is Nikita



More of a sequel than a remake, the CW's Nikita will star Maggie Q as an agent who's recruited to replace the original Femme. [Double O Section]

Meet Jim Rockford



We were wondering who could play him in the comments to another post. Now we know. It's Dirty Steve. I never would have thought of that, but I think that could work quite nicely. [The Ausiello Files]

Save the date (unless you've got a TARDIS)



The fifth season of Doctor Who will air on BBC America on April 17th. [Topless Robot]

Office Detention



I think that may be more of a Win though. [Failblog]

Dammit! We're just now catching up on Grey's (we're three episodes behind because while we recorded 'em, all we watched for 16 days was the Olympics), and I love this pairing. Crap on a stick.

I feel the same way. I'm very glad that Jason George has a regular gig, but I'd really hoped it would be on Grey's.

I just glanced at the photo up top and thought "The Old Spice Guy is ROCKFORD?!"

Heh!

Man, I was careless about that formatting, wasn't I? :D
