    I'm always going to want a locally based, physical library, both of my own and the public kind. And people are tactilly oriented and like to touch. So I don't see traditional mediums just going away.

    So, Alaric may end up dying for keeps then before the end of the season? Too bad, I really like Alaric :(

    That's a good point. I don't think personal DVD libraries, with nicely designed covers that you can put on a shelf, will ever vanish.

    And you can't really give gifts that are nothing but virtual goods. Well, you can, but it's not really the same as getting something wrapped up with a bow, is it?

    I don't like collecting stuff, so I'd be fine to jump to streaming, but I insist they do it my way, and that's not something I see emerging soon, maybe not at all. Till then, I'll stubbornly stick with the status quo as the next best thing.

    Well, the showrunners claim that Alaric will be back as a guest star next season, but this song and dance seems awfully familiar. Wasn't there another recent case just like this one that didn't turn out so well for the character whose actor was jumping ship to a new show, despite official assurances to the contrary...? ;)

    I like Matt Davis a lot but I've pretty much given up on TVD (they keep going over the same stuff, two seasons of that is enough for me), so I'm happy to see him get his own series.

    Heh, yea, in that case, with the short seasons, it seemed totally believable the actor could do both series, so, I was surprised by the death

    Yea, I'm still hanging in, but, my interest has been waning a bit this season too

    It's possible the actor could be back for flashbacks, so in that sense, maybe the producers were telling the truth? ;)

    Simon Pegg may join LA Noir as guest star.

    (I know it's not sf/f, but I like the concept and there are plenty of genre connections.) ;)

    Pegg would be great as some weasley little character in the Peter Lorre or Elisha Cook Jr. mold, who rats on the mob and gets whacked in the premiere. It would be unimaginative of them to cast him as comic relief.

    Oh, for a second I thought that was saying the show was named Drama Infection, but it's actually just saying "A drama named Infection." The former sounded somewhat more interesting. ;) (Reminds me of Monty Python's sketch about the overacting clinic.)

    So now Revolution is "a world where physics no longer follows the same rules"? Well that's an improvement over all forms of energy vanishing. ;)

    A world where the old rules of physics no longer apply outside the human body. Thankfully everything beneath the skin continues as usual.

    That wouldn't be science fiction, more like a documentary.
