Posthumous Honors: Cancelled TV Shows Nominated for 2009 Emmy Awards

July 21, 2009
It happens every year. Shows that have ended or (more likely) have been cancelled are nominated for the industry's highest honor, the Emmy Award. Interestingly, many of them are nominated for the show's last episode. Though the cast and crews of these shows may attend the award ceremony on September 12th, they sadly won't be working with each other the next morning. Here are the lucky and yet not-so-lucky nominees... According to Jim, Battlestar Galactica, Boston Legal, ER, Everybody Hates Chris, Life on Mars, MADtv, The Mole, My Name Is Earl, Pushing Daisies, Samantha Who?, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Veterans of Cancelled TV Shows That We Lost in June 2009

Veterans of Cancelled TV Shows That We Lost in June 2009

July 6, 2009
Last month was particularly hard on television lovers. We lost a lot of indelible talent during June. Like their shows, there are a lot of talented people that won't be back in the Fall. They include David Carradine (The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, The Virginian, Wagon Train, Kung Fu, Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, Charmed, Medium, Alias, and Jackie Chan Adventures), Ward Costello (The Edge of Night, The Streets of San Francisco, Little House on the Prairie, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Newhart, and General Hospital), Johnny Palermo (Passions, Campus Ladies, Just for Kicks, Everybody Hates Chris, and ER), Michael Roof (Hype and Raising the Roofs), Hal Riddle (Green Acres, The FBI, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Eight is Enough, The Waltons, and Dallas), Ken Roberts (Candid Camera, Love of Life, The Secret Storm, and The Electric Company), Anne Roberts Nelson (I Love Lucy, All in the Family, Gunsmoke, and The Young and The Restless), Lorena Gale (The X-Files, Smallville, Reunion, Bionic Woman (2007), The 4400, Battlestar Galactica, and Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins), Ed McMahon (Who Do You Trust?, The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, Star Search, TV Bloopers and Practical Jokes, and ALF's Hit Talk Show), Michael Jackson (Jackson 5ive, The Simpsons), Farrah Fawcett (I Dream of Jeannie, The Six Million Dollar Man, Charlie's Angels, Ally McBeal, The Guardian, Spin City, and Chasing Farrah), Gail Storm (My Little Margie, The Gale Storm Show, The Love Boat, and Murder, She Wrote), Billy Mays (Pitchmen), and Harve Presnell (The Pretender, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Dawson's Creek, and Andy Barker, PI). Here are the details... David Carradine, 72, was found dead in his hotel room in Central Thailand. He was there shooting a movie and his June 3rd death is still under investigation. Carradine was born in Hollywood, the son of actor John Carradine, and he is related to several other performers that share his last name. His early roles include those on The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, The Virginian, and Wagon Train. In the 1970s, he starred in the series Kung Fu as "Grasshopper" Kwai Chang Caine and it would become his most-successful television role. He was nominated for both an Emmy and a Golden Globe for the show. Carradine returned to the role in a TV movie in 1986, with Brandon Lee playing his son. Then, in the 1990s, he came back to series television in Kung Fu: The Legend Continues and played the grandson of his original character. He appeared in many movies over the years (most notably the Kill Bill movies) and guested on shows like Charmed, Medium, Alias, and Jackie Chan Adventures.

<em>Battlestar Galactica:</em> New Movie in the Works — Is It What Fans Want?

Battlestar Galactica: New Movie in the Works — Is It What Fans Want?

February 28, 2009
Fans of Sci-Fi's popular Battlestar Galactica TV show are looking forward to the last episode, but they're also dreading the void that the series' absence will leave. Though the network is moving ahead with the prequel series Caprica, the traditional characters won't be part of it. News has now leaked out that a new movie is in the works. Curiously, it won't be based on the current series. Created by Glen A. Larson, Battlestar Galactica (BSG) centers around a group of refugees from a distant star system, searching for a mythological planet called Earth. The series features performers like Richard Hatch, Lorne Greene, Dirk Benedict, Herb Jefferson Jr., Laurette Spang, Terry Carter, John Colicos, Tony Swartz, Maren Jensen, Noah Hathaway, David Greenan, Patrick Macnee, Anne Lockhart, Sarah Rush, Felix Silla, and Jonathan Harris. After BSG's cancellation, an impressive write-in campaign took place, and Larson crafted a sequel series. Galactica 1980 is set several years after the original series. Several familiar characters were written out of the story to help control costs. Interestingly, only one of the stars who were included signed on. Greene returned but Benedict was unavailable and Hatch read the script and declined. Utilizing unused footage from the original series, Benedict's Starbuck character returned in a flashback episode but it wasn't enough to save the show. Production was halted midway through episode 11 and only 10 episodes of Galactica 1980 aired.
