SciFi Friday: Who Never Heard of The Brady Bunch?

Most fans found the last episode of Lost to be disappointing. Two weeks ago we saw how Juliet wound up with the others, and last week we saw that Desmond might be unstuck in time like Billy Pilgrim in Slaughterhouse-Five. (Some people even speculate that they are all unstuck in time, having gone back to before personal catastrophes such as Locke getting stuck in the wheel chair, allowing them a chance to have things be different.) After these two episodes we had hopes for something great as the promos promised to reveal secrets. It was a real let down to find that the biggest secret revealed was how Jack got his tatoos. It was just another story of Jack searching for himself and being destined to be a great leader.

Another secret revealed is that Cindy and other Tallies were alive and with the Others as some sort of Watchers. What they were watching wasn’t clear, but most likely it was either Juliet’s hearing or this is something left vague dealing with the Dharma project. The whole time Jack, Kate, and Sawyer were with the Others it seemed strange that they weren’t trying to get more information as to what is going on. Now Jack had a chance to talk to someone who just might answer some questions and he throws a tantrum instead. Sawyer and Kate also mgiht have asked Karl a bit more. At least they found out that he never heard of The Brady Bunch, which suggests that either he spent his entire life on the island or that they really fried his mind in that room he was rescued from (using the old Wookie Prisoner Trick.)

While this episode of Lost was disappointing, they are still up for several Saturn Awards from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films. From Slice of Scifi:

In the television categories, “Lost” continued to find nominations, receiving a total of 6. NBC’s newcomer “Heroes” burst onto the scene, earning 5 nominations, followed closely by Sci Fi’s “Battlestar Galactica” and Showtime’s “Dexter,” each garnering 4 nominations, while TNT’s “The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines” discovered 3 nominations.

Slice of SciFi also reports that Claudia Black has an upcoming guest appearance on Dresden Files:

The SCI FI Channel will be sharing its wealth of talent and lending them to some of their newer projects. For example, Claudia Black of Stargate SG-1 and Farscape fame has just finished filming a guest-starring role on the network’s new original series “The Dresden Files.”

In the episode, entitled “The Other Dick,” Claudia will play the role of Liz Fontaine, a boistrous, and pushy private eye with a her own shady past she’d like kept hidden. This is a perfiect role for Black, just think legal-eagle and talk-show host Erin Brockovich with an attitude and a gun.

Lucy Lawless will also be back on televison after her fellow Cylons pulled the plug on her. She will play a ruthless spouse on the US adaptation of Footballers’ Wives.
