… what’s new news then?
The random first:
FTP Prods submitted a special application for a film permit [for FlashForward] at 2828 Butler Ave., for filming scheduled to begin Feb. 16 and end Feb. 18.
City Councilman Alfredo Flores jokingly asked if there would be any autographed head shots provided for council members of some of the cast members. “I’m just kidding,” he said.
No joke is the recent news from the “FlashForward” front, though.
As if the hiatus for “Flash Forward” and the date-juggling over at ABC weren’t bad enough (at the moment, the series is supposed to continue on 18 March, 2010), we now have to learn that
CO-CREATOR DAVID GOYER IS STEPPING DOWN FROM HIS ROLE RUNNING THE SERIES,
though he’s quick to assure that
“I’m proud of the show and excited about the relaunch. It’s in great hands.”
Ah. Well, the same was said about the US version of “Coupling”, and we all know how that turned out. I really want to believe in the success of FlashForward, despite this chaos. I also want to believe in unicorns.
I’ll keep my fingers crossed for Jack Davenport and everybody else involved with the show; maybe we’ll witness a miracle and “FlashForward” can recover. But so far, we have artificial hype and many online gizmos by the makers, yet not a strong, solid fanbase. There simply aren’t enough fans who really care. That sort of emotional investment into a show, vitally important for its success, can’t be bought. Why, yes, I’m disappointed.
On a more positive note,
HERE’S AN INTERVIEW WITH JACK DAVENPORT
And now for something completely different – rumours and gossip!
DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ ON WIKIPEDIA.
Anybody capable of starting a computer can edit entries. Information, be it on a person’s professional or private life, is only reliable when it comes from a reliable source. And as far as private information goes, it’s none of our business, anyway. Caveat lector!
JACK DAVENPORT ON FACEBOOK?
Yes, there’s a “Jack Davenport” on Facebook. (Or two. Maybe three.) The person running that facebook is clearly stating in her profile that she is not the “real” Jack Davenport, and that it’s a fan project. She’s not pretending to be somebody she’s not. Looks like innocent fun to me.
As you can tell from my usage of third person, it’s not me who is running the facebook in question, even if there’s a link to “Good Boy, Sparky”. I also don’t know who’s running it. Facebook is to me what garlic is to a vampire. Also, I’m a dog and am not allowed to have an account. So if you’re upset because you don’t like this fan project, don’t clutch your pearls in my mailbox. Any further complaints regarding this matter will be deleted and your address will be marked as spam.
