Site News: No More Tru Calling
Well, it seems that after years of not having an issue with Fox, they finally decided that they have had enough of me. Sitting on my doorstep this afternoon, in a DHL courier envelope, was a brief two-page letter from the Fox legal department. Fox is requesting that while it's okay to keep up the Buffy/Angel archives, I must immediately remove any and all Tru Calling spoilers/summaries and links.
Before, I might have tried to fight it. But to be honest, I was on the fence about covering 'Tru Calling' as it is. If Fox feels that having less spoilers might improve the ratings for the show, more power to them. Effective immediately, the site will no longer cover 'Tru Calling'. I have also been requested to remove any and all images related to Buffy/Angel/Tru Calling that are used for 'commercial' purposes. Which means I have to remove the Spoiler Store and banner ads.
What does this mean for the site as a whole, I'm really not sure? One of the other shows I was thinking about covering was a Fox property, which pulls that out of the running. Of the others I was kicking around, one has yet to receive the greenlight and the other is going to be on a network that is infamous for canceling shows after a few episodes. While I don't want to end spoiling shows, if it means I'm going to be getting 'legal documents' on my doorstep on a regular basis, I have to be honest and say that it's not worth it. The site itself really has nothing left to prove, and if the networks feel that what I'm doing is detrimental to their shows, then why try to fight it.
In any event, with the last of the spoilers for 'Dead Like Me' coming in, I don't have to make a decision immediately. But I think it's safe to say that there will not be a lot of news over the next few weeks, while I try to figure things out.
In the meantime. I have done the best I could to remove any Season Two 'Tru Calling' spoilers and store links. Since the letter specifically mentioned Season Two spoilers, I have not removed the 'Tru Calling' entries for Season One. If you do run across any Season Two spoilers or broken links while surfing the site, please let me know so it can be corrected.
Thank You for all of your support and understanding!!!
DLM: Info On The Final Two
'DeadGirlWalking' has returned, with spoilers for the final two episodes of the 'Dead Like Me' season. Some interesting events in the second to last episode, titled 'Always'. While the final episode is a Halloween-themed 'All Saints'.
Just a reminder as well, the new season of 'Dead Like Me' begins tomorrow night on 'Showtime'.

Dead Like Me: Always (2.14)From the looks of it, it does appear that the big season-arc finale will be resolved in Episode 14. The Halloween episode sounds more like a themed-episode that may not have much to do with setting up next season's arc. Then again, with such limited information, it's hard to say.
I don't know what has happened to Trip, the love interest that seemed to appear several episodes earlier. After George reaped his father, and the funeral in the following episode, there seems to be nothing else. Which is surprising, since it seemed so well setup for him to discover George's true identity.
Also not much on the Daisy/Mason storyline it seems in these episodes. Mason is now living with Daisy and George, so we may have to see how this plays out next Season.

I had several people email reports that while doing an interview in Australia, James Marsters mentioned that Joss approached him about returning to the Buffyverse. Hercules at AICN also reported on this story. According to his comments, it could be as many as four made-for-television movies. Each would focus on a different character, and it's safe to assume that one of those would be Spike. If I had to guess, I would think Willow, Illyria, and Giles would be the others. Giles would make the most sense, as at least a partial story for 'Ripper' already exists.
In somewhat unrelated Anthony Stewart Head news, he has signed to join the cast of 'Monarch of the Glen'. Some may recall that I have mentioned this series in the past, and while I personally feel that the show is not worth watching past Season Two, with both Anthony and Tom Baker ('Doctor Who') on the cast I may have to start again.

DLM: Episode 12 and 13 Information
The emails from 'DeadGirlWalking' have been sporadic lately, but she did just write with new information on 'Dead Like Me' episodes 12 ('Forget Me Not') and 13 ('Last Call'). I can also add that the title of the 14th episode will be 'Always'.

Dead Like Me: Forget Me Not (2.12)Very interesting spoilers, especially in regards to both Rube and Daisy/Mason. I believe that what we are seeing is George's influence on the others. Still no word on Trip, perhaps that is the big secret that her friend is not mentioning. Also very little Happy Time info, perhaps these stories are taking a back seat while we focus on the Reapers themselves. By my count, there are only one or two episodes left in this season, so it will be interesting to see how this all turns out.
