One star means that the commercials are more entertaining than the program.
Two stars watch if you have nothing better to do.
Three stars is good solid entertainment.
Four stars means you never dreamed television could be this good.

Christian Brock sends news that The Ghost Whisperer has not given up the ghost after all. It will be back this Fall.

Battlestar Galactica Ronald D. Moore has announced a prequel to Battlestar Galactica called Caprica. It is designed to be character driven, rather than action/adventure. I love Ron Moore's work, but Star Trek tried a prequel, and we all know how that fared. I think most people like their stories to move forward rather than backward. There is a sense in which people watch a story in order to learn what happens next. When a story is told out of order, that desire goes unsatisfied.

The good news for July is the return of new episodes on Sci Fi Friday. No, no new Battlestar Galactica yet, just Stargates. The web abounds with spoilers about Battlestar Galactica Season Three but you won't read any here. I like surprises.

What's new in July:

Sunday, July 2
The 4400, the first five season 3 episodes shown back to back

Sunday, July 9
The 4400, "Graduation Day" (season 3, episode 6)

Friday, July 14

Friday, July 21

And now, I'm off to the IMAX to see Superman Returns, (partly in 3D).
