News Notes

News Flashes and Brief Follow-Ups

David-Nykl-Fringe
Last Week’s TV Appearances: David Nykl in Fringe; Michael Shanks in The Good Guys; Robert Picardo in Supernatural.

  • Robert Picardo – Apologies to Picardo fans! We hadn’t heard that he’d be a guest star on Supernatural on November 19 in the episode “Clap Your Hands If You Believe …”! Good news, though: The CW will be posting the episode online soon so you can still catch his appearance!
  • David Hewlett – He wasn’t in last week’s episode of Hellcats as we were expecting. The show will be on a brief break and will return December 1, so we’ll be on the look-out for him as Dr. Eagan then.

Syfy: SGU 2.05 “Trial and Error” at 9 PM ET, with a repeat at 11 PM.

Sky1/UK: SGU 2.05 “Cloverdale” at 9 PM.

We’re in the process of trying to verify with MSOL whether or not tonight’s episode of the Cartoon Network’s Tower Prep is the one in which Michael Shanks has the role as Professor Literature. We were under the impression that the episode he appeared in was directed by Stargate alum Peter DeLuise, but the information in the IMDb record for tonight’s episode says differently. If you miss watching at 8 PM ET/PT, the show’s official website posts the episodes for later viewing online. [NOTE: MSOL has since confirmed that Michael’s episode is going to air on November 16.]

If you missed Paul McGillion in the Lifetime movie Confined, it will be repeated tonight at 8 PM ET and again at midnight. [NOTE: If you have a screencap of McGillion in this movie, we’d love to post it in his gallery for Beyond the Event Horizon (it needs to be 260×146).]
