Depends on what they mean by "urban fantasy," I guess.

I wonder if I can get my brother on Don't Quit Your Daydream....

More Defiance casting.

Starting to sound like a wannabee Deadwood...

^ That wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.

The talent seems to be really mounting up for Defiance. Could be something of a sleeper hit.

Well SyFy won't allow all that swearing. Unless it's in Chinese.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

I don't really who they cast in Defiance.

But...

The other day I was wondering what happened to Rockne O'Bannon after he got done with Farscape. And here is he with a potentially cool new show. Sweet.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

Defiance is one of the shows mentioned in this thread that I am really interested. Given O'Bannon's involvement, and the cast they've gotten together I'm really looking forward to it. I might try the game, but I'm not sure yet.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

Remember that Booster Gold series for SyFy? Still alive.

For those of you unfamiliar with Booster Gold, Dan Jurgens created the character in 1986. He made his first appearance in ‘Booster Gold’ #1, being the first significant new character introduced in the DC Universe continuity after the reboot of ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’. Initially, he was a showboating glory hog from the future that used knowledge of historical events and futuristic technology to stage highly publicized heroics. Eventually, he becomes a true hero alongside his trusty sidekick/robot Skeets, but he’s weighed down by the reputation he created for himself.
Ben Browder's the guy for that part...

^I wonder what would happen to Temis if Ben Browder and Joe Flanigan somehow managed to get cast in the same show.

They already did! They were in Stargate: Atlantis together on one memorable occasion.

I tried to Google "cameron mitchell john sheppard" to get a screenshot or something but instead...my oh my, do I have a lot of reading to catch up on. And what images I found are NSFW.

To be pedantic, they were actually together on Stargate SG-1, not Stargate: Atlantis. The Episode is called "The Pegasus Project," the third episode from season 10.
