After months of waiting, Zack Snyder's Superman short, encompassing the entire 75 year history of the character, finally debuted this past weekend at New York Comic Con and it's now made its way online for you to enjoy. Here's what DC had to say about the short:

From the creative minds of Zack Snyder (Man of Steel) and Bruce Timm (Superman: The Animated Series) and produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this short follows Superman through the years, from his first appearance on the cover of Action Comics #1 to Henry Cavill in this year's Man of Steel...all in two minutes!

Don't forget it will air on Cartoon Network on Wednesday, October 16 at 6:58 p.m. ET and will be available on the DVD and Blu-ray for Man of Steel this November.

I had almost forgotten I had this blog.  It has been a while since I last posted.  Sorry about that.  I have been keeping up the website ( though as well as the Facebook page ( 

There have been a number of new developments on the Babylon 5 front.  The #FreeBabylon5 movement is the main one.  This all started following a mention of Babylon 5 on Breaking Bad a couple of weeks ago.  From there things have moved on.  Ranger Jan Schroeder has made up #FreeBabylon5 buttons and they were given out at New York Comic Con this weekend.  Great start.

Other items:

There are two polls over at imdb that are of interest:
There are two polls over at IMDb now where you can vote and make a difference. The first is for the best series finale episode. Predictably, 'Breaking Bad' has been winning hands down. But Babylon 5's 'Sleeping in Light' is holding on to #3! Not bad for a show that hasn't been on the tube for a long while! Go to IMDb and cast your vote! It is a great way to show support for the show. 

The second poll is for your favorite story set in the 23rd century. Go to Favorite 23rd Century Story and vote for BABYLON 5. Early voting shows Babylon 5 just ahead of Star Trek.

BBC America ( had a nice shout-out to Babylon 5 for its accuracy in space.  Here's a quote from the article:

"Some do it slightly better than others. "I'd prefer not to single out a single film/book/series for this particular error, because it's so common - but I will laud the old television show Babylon 5, for doing a wonderful job of representing the mechanics of spaceflight inertia so nicely," explains Trollope."

This is all good news.

For those interested in convention appearances, a number of the Babylon 5 cast are scheduled to appear at the SpaceCity Con in Texas January 3-5, 2014.  For more information, go to  

More news to come.

Movies with a Message

I was offered the opportunity to review RUN ON a few weeks ago.  While I usually don't watch videos of this sort, I started watching and loved the stories of people overcoming challenges.  Though described as a comedy, it is far from the slap-stick comedy routines I'm familiar with.  You will laugh -- and cry -- as you watch this presentation. 

Here is a synopsis of RUN ON.

RUN ON is a standup comedy delivered by the top three Christian comedians -David A.R. White, Tommy Blaze and Brad Stine - who hysterically share a stage and tell stories of family, growing up and their own prodigal journeys.

Though each story is from a unique experience, they weave seamlessly together to form the oldest human story of all, the futility of trying to "run" from God (The Prodigal Son). While relaying humorous stories along with the real truth of their faith testimony, these three also show a serious side as they testify to sinful moments in each of their lives.

These men will make you laugh and teach you some important lessons for your life as they discuss the Christian influence that changed each of them. This show will reveal the funny and serious side of living a prodigal son's life. While the monologues are independent from each other and reflect very different paths and lifestyles, they weave together to create one greater story with elements and commonalities shared by all of us.

New TV Season

I have a number of shows that I watch -- rather faithfully -- as my schedule permits.  FRINGE is one of them and while I have missed a few episodes, I can usually catch up using the website to watch episodes.  That is a tremendous asset that Fox has made available.  Now that there are new shows on that will compete for your viewership, having shows available over the internet is a destinct benefit.  I know some shows have a way to factor that viewing public into their statistics -- so that helps as well.

FRINGE has always been a favorite of mine.  The acting is wonderful and the story line keeps me guessing all the time.  From the strange occurances that the team would investigate each week to the subplot of what did Walter do when Peter died and he went into the alternate universe to retrieve the other Peter.  There are always other stories swirling around as well. What was Massive Dynamics and where did they fit into the scheme of things.  To have Leonard Nimoy play Walter Bishop's former partner was marvelous casting.

The new season started off with a bang as well.  I don't want to spoil it for any who haven't seen it yet, but did everyone else enjoy it as much as I did?

Are there other shows that made it to your "favorites" listing this week?  How about Hawaii Five-O?  I have always liked Daniel Day Kim from Crusade and he is great in the role of Chin Ho Kelly (looks nothing like the original).  Grace Parks is good as Kono as well and everyone seems to be melding into a good team.

So drop a line, lend a comment.  Let us know what you think about the new shows.  More coming this week!

Movies You Should See

On Friday, I had a chance to watch INVICTUS, a movie with Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela and Matt Damon, as a rugby captain.  It was a marvelous movie.  Made me wonder why anyone would play rugby though.  It seems a very violent sport, but I guess football and hockey aren't that much better.  Anyway, the movie was a wonderful study not only of South Africa following apartheid, it showed a nation torn along racial lines come together over a rugby team. 

This afternoon I went to see ROBIN HOOD.  I loved it.  Unlike other Robin Hood movies, this one was very unique.  The main character is not Robin of Lockley, but Robin Longstride, an archer who fought with King Richard in the Crusades.  I don't want to spoil the story for anyone, but I really did enjoy Russel Crowe in the title role.
