Netflix to launch Wachowski-produced TV series Sense8 in late 2014 | The Verge

Eureka canceled

It looks like Syfy has canceled Eureka. It ends after the next season and not in the next few weeks, as some would have you believe. The producers wanted a shortened sixth season to wrap up some things, but didn’t get it. Hopefully, the story will wrap up nicely.

Personally, I have always thought five seasons is enough for any series, no matter how many episodes are in each individual season. Eureka was a very enjoyable show and I will enjoy the rest of the episodes knowing that, unlike some other shows, it won’t wear out its welcome.

I stopped watching the show when it came to the winter break and I didn’t start watching The Cape either, so they lost a Monday viewer (Well, a Monday night DVRer). However, knowing that the story might be completed, I might go back, finish the first season and watch the miniseries when it comes out.

Jeff Conaway Hospitalized in a Coma – ABC News

Unfortunately, Babylon 5‘s Jeff Conaway has fallen into a coma. Apparently, he had a drug overdose. I think he was on a show called Celebrity Rehab a few years ago, but it looks like any treatment didn’t stick. My best wishes go out to him and his family in this trying time.
