Reading the Screen: A V Good Time
Posted by: David Pitt

You’ve probably heard that V, the ABC alien-invasion series, has been picked up for a second season. The show is based, of course, on the 1983 NBC miniseries, its sequel, and a short-lived weekly series. If you haven’t seen any of these (they’re all on DVD), you can check out the various spin-off novels. Start […]

Reading the Screen: Another Trip to the Planet of the Apes?
Posted by: David Pitt

I just found out — and I’m very upset with you for not telling me sooner — that there’s going to be another Planet of the Apes movie. It’s called Caesar: Rise of the Apes (or just Rise of the Apes, depending on which report you read), and apparently it’s a prequel to the original […]
