Or, Fox could do what it did with Firefly.

Which is possibly why Nathan Fillion was not cast for this show, at all. I don't think he auditioned, but still, his track record with Fox is far from stellar.

Yeah, Shatner's kewl on a stick covered in kewl sauce with an extra helping of kewl fries, Denny Crane especially so.

Finally, proof that Network Execs killed God, stuffed his body in the trunk of a late model sedan and drove it off the end of a deep water port peir.

I'm still ashamed to live here.  Embarrassed

It's not all bad, we're just about to get the 4th seasons of both Boston Legal and House here. That's two fine examples of quality American programming. Oh, and before you ask, it does feel a little odd using a Shatner show and 'quality programming' in the same sentance.

The sad thing is that there is no Wii version.

And if there was it would be much better if it was first person and you swung your Wiimote to generate the moves onscreen. It mightn't be as kewl when to people fight using the one TV, but it would still be much more fun - and quite a workout, too.

I love that they mention how well the show did when compared to last week's American Gladiators. I think you could put on 44 minutes of a dog balancing a ball on its nose to the looping track of Yakety Sax* and get higher ratings that AG!

*Knowing American TV execs, this show probably already exists Tongue

There's also talks (by the director) of having Lobster Johnson appearing in Hellboy 3, with "The Chin" playing that role.

You've sold me on the third movie with just that one tidbit!

Maybe Campbell and Perlman could have a 'duelling chins' sequence....

Hands up all those who remember this classic French anime series from the early 80's...

It looks like this show will finally be getting an English language DVD release next month, and there is also a movie version slated for next year.

I loved this show when it was on local TV here. I made a point of making it home from school or wherever else I was in time to see it. I'm interested in a DVD version, especially if the image is sharp and not taken from 20+ year old VHS.

Furthermore, here's a close up of his appearance in the trailer - courtesy of Wikipedia:

Johann will be voiced by Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong, Resident Evil: Apocalypse).

Who's the extra member? Ben Daimyo? Johann Kraus?

I believe it is Johann Kraus. If you goto the Photo section of the official site you can get a better look at him, he also gets mentioned in the Story section.

I've been known to do voices on occasion. I must admit that my female Nazi German accent is not nearly as good as my Sam Elliot cowboy accent.

I must say, though, that Jack as Captain is the best casting I've ever heard of. Heck, I'd watch that movie!

I liked him until he showed up as a little kid in the stupid ass prequils.

Hey, what's wrong with an army of Jake the Muss' land-claiming the galaxy in the name of the Emperor? Grin

I guess it's funnier if you're a Kiwi...

Don't panic! Daniel Craig isn't being replaced, but it is almost as bad.

The Hoff has bent his indescribable musical talent towards recording a version of the song Secret Agent Man and produced a very Bond-intro-esque video for it to boot.

Click the screen capture if you're brave enough to watch the video...

It's not the worst music video he has made, mainly because he's mostly in shadow and there are a lot of tastefully nude women to give you something else to look at.

I watched the redband (R18) trailer and it was pretty much everything I expected from a movie. In fact, I knew I was going to see it as soon as I saw him take out the two guys in the jeep.

Pure, unadulterated badass.

And look, you've just forced yourself to spend $15-40 on a new keyboard all due to your disbelief!  Undecided

That's where I was clever. I made that previous post at work, so it wasn't my keyboard which was damaged. Anyway, it was a virtual tea-spitting, so I'll leave this here and move on.

$80 US is about $100 NZ, and shipping and import duties could easily amount to the $40 US to bring the cost to $150 NZ.

Actually, the gaming stores here just take the US price and double it (sometimes adding a little more on top), but you're on the right track. It would be easier just to purchase the books online and have them shipped out, but I believe in supporting locals.

If Crafty were to bring out a theoretical limited run, full colour version which cost US$80 I wouldn't mind so much - as long as you could pick up the black and white version at the normal price. It's the old 'Special Features' thing with DVDs and CDs. People who want that bit extra are often willing to pay a bit more for it, but there are always those out there who want the basic 'meat and potatoes' version at the cheaper price.

EDIT: I'm honestly not White Knighting here, myself. Sure, I'm a Crafty Super Fan, but that is not coming into play here. Besides, I'm much more of a Hurloon Minotaurerer...
