I agree with Agent Vaughn AKA Michael Vartan, rather see original cast back.  Because it is way too soon to be rebooting a show that just ended a few years ago.

“I heard rumors of it, and to be honest with you, I find it absolutely preposterous,” Vartan said in a conference call on June 7, while he was promoting the medical drama Hawthorne. “I’m still young enough to run down a hallway, and so is Jennifer [Garner]. What is this nonsense of recasting Alias? Give us 20 years at least. How dare they?”

He’s being sarcastic there, and he says it with a laugh, but there is a kernel of truth to Vartan’s rant. Wouldn’t getting Vartan and Garner back for some butt-kicking adventures be better than starting over?

Even though a few days old, I still glad to hear that the BBC series Torchwood will get a fourth season.  Quite enjoyed the shorter season three more mini series style Children of Earth.

When the cult series “Torchwood” finally returns in the summer of 2011, the sci-fi drama will have a new American home and a more international flavor. “’Torchwood’ has to date been located primarily in Cardiff, Wales,” Starz’s Monday release said. “The new series will allow Davies and his writing team to tell a more explosive and global story, one that takes advantage of the unlimited narrative opportunities of a premium television service like Starz.”

When I finally saw the first film, I surprislingly enjoyed it, since was not quite sure what really to expect from it.

Nesson said that he’s meeting with Besson later this month to talk about the sequel. The big hurdle right now, according to the actor? It will be “hard to get a plot that will be believable.”
