newsbits: pilot season

- Not sure where Bonnie Bedelia has been, but we know where she's going to be this fall.

- A bunch of TV shows are on the bubble. Some have run their course and already syndicated (Cold Case), while others never quite found their footing (Eleventh Hour). I think its funny that three years ago everyone thought Studio 60 was a surefire success and 30 Rock was a weird little thing that wouldn't go anywhere, and now Fringe is thriving while Bruckheimer's import remake is on the bubble -- even though it follows CSI.

- Ellen Pompeo is pregnant, which I guess means that she finally has to eat. Hey, it worked for Nicole Richie.

- NBC is auctioning off a Battlestar Raptor, which isn't really news since they tried auctioning it off 2 months ago and it never met the reserve price. Something tells me the finale + recession means that we'll be seeing this on the backlot tram tour in the not-so-distant-future.

- More robot smash footage from Transformers 2 has hit the internets, and I still could care less. The first movie was so bad it transcended mockery.

- I'm trying to avoid everything Star Trek I can so I can have fun in the movie -- I fear I already know too much about the set up.

You may be the only person I know who didn't like Transformers. I thought it was a special effects masterpiece, but other than that...meh.

I guarantee you i'm not the only one who disliked the movie, nay, loathed, and if applying the "blur" filter to almost every oversaturated frame counts as a masterpiece...well...
