I'm beginning to like Woosley..

I liked him soon after he first came on SG-1, in the climactic story arc of the new President. He was a bureaucrat sent to do what he thought was an important job, then discovered that he was working for VERY bad superiors, and had to oppose them to do his duty. He sticks to the rules, but who wants someone with enormous delegated power out freelancing? Of course he came from Stargate Voyager, with a similar character as the holographic doctor, which didn't hurt.

Didn't spot any additional 'Battlestar Galactica' actors in new shows this week.

Woohoo Eureka’s back.

That’s just plain a fun show. It’s never going to change the world, it will probably be forgotten within 2 years of the last episode, but for now it’s just fun.

Picardo has a way of bringing out the best of a character. I like everything I've seen him in.

Including "The Cowboy" from Inner Space

I watched some of the web-only Sanctuary or Sanctuary for All.

It has potential. I read that it may be coming to SciFi this fall.

The Middleman on ABC Family is sort of Men in Black/Torchwood/Special Unit 2. It tends to be long on the ‘girlie-ness’ of one of the 2 main characters. (That is what got the new Bionic Woman dumped.)

Possible spoiler for the coming season on “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” is on zap2it.com, FYI.

I think Woolsey’s character is meant to be sort of dislikeable, and if other TV shows I’ve watched with similar characters are any indication, either he’ll eventually become cooler and likeable, or he’s there for the viewers to hate on and eventually he’ll come to a satisfyingly awful end. I don’t have a specific preference, but I miss Sam, cause she was cool.

This latest Doctor Who episode seems to have brought in characters from many of the recent episodes as well as the Doctor Who spin-offs, Torchwood, and The Sarah Jane Adventures. I won't say anything more, but it's one of the most exciting Doctor Who story lines that I have ever see - and I've been a fan since the 1970s.

I'm one of the few people I know who has seen part one of Doctor Who and who has neither seen nor had spoiled part two. (Since it aired already in the UK, spoilers are easy to come by.)

I like that they're bringing back some older stuff. However, I'm not all that familiar with the older stuff, so I don't want to see any guest appearances for the sake of guest appearances. They should be able to do something. (For instance, I was unfamiliar with the Shadow Proclamation, so I hope they have something to do with the next episode.)

I had to watch it a second time. The TV it was recorded on is equipped for closed captioning ... but the guy who gave it to us never mentioned how to turn it on. However, it automatically goes on when the TV is on Mute.

So the second time, I muted the set and read the dialogue. Too much of it goes by too fast, and I'm having a problem with the accents sometimes.

Saw this last night -- it was really dumb but I liked it. BTW I think the white haired gunfighter character is the same from Tremors 3 or 4 (the old west one). So that makes this a prequel of sorts.

I just discovered Eureka a few months ago. Thanks to NetFlix I'm all caught up. Love it. Fun fun fun indeed.

BTW ... Has anyone watched The 4400? Is it any good?

I want to see Brigadier Sir Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart.

I don’t know why but ever since Woosley came to Atlantis I can’t see him as anything other than the Johnny Cab from Total Recall.

Oh yeah, great Doctor Who but then I even think the bad Doctor Who’s are good.
