VIEWS FROM THE ACORN UNIVERSE, 8/7/08

This week, In The Closet, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, and Doctor Who.

IN THE CLOSET.

ThisWeekInTexas.Com has posted my review of In The Closet, as well as an updated version of my review of A Four Letter Word. In The Closet is a production of the gay scifi/fantasy/horror site doorQ.

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.

The SciFi Channel has announced plans for another Battlestar Galactica prequel. Edward James Olmos will direct the feature, which takes place just before the mini-series and series, but will air after the series finale in 2009. SciFi had previously announced the prequel pilot Caprica, which takes place much further in the past.

STARGATE.

The new direct-to-DVD movie Stargate Continuum is an exciting romp, filled with nostalgia. It also contains hints about a new villain, suggesting more installments in the movie series. If the sequel prequel sequel The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior can happen, you just never know.

DOCTOR WHO.

The site io9 has posted an Exclusive Interview with Doctor Who’s Steven Moffat. The new show-runner discusses his plans for the series, which won’t return until 2010, except for some specials.
