Sadly tonight is the last new episode of "Outlander" before the season goes on hiatus and doesn't return until April. Fans are whining - I'm trying not to. I know how horrible it is waiting whole years for "Game of Thrones" to return and they only get 10 episodes - at least "Outlander" is getting a full 16 eps for it's first season (the difference between it not being heavy FX driven.)

Anyway here are my new bunches of wallpapers and one poster from last week's amazing episode. As always the walls are either 1280x800 or 1680x1050.

Hello all - FYI I'm not dead. I've had massive internet issues over the past year that seem *knock on wood* to be finally clearing up.

I haven't been doing a lot of fan art mostly because my gallery is broken and I can no longer upload anything to it. My sister used to maintain it but I think she lost all of the files, so short of her building me a brand new one (which she has zero interest in doing) I'm w/o a working gallery to upload and host any new artwork.

Hi All,
So you might've noticed that I seem to have dropped off of making wallpapers. Actually I have made some, I just haven't had much interest to advertise them considering I keep finding my works either A) Stolen B) re-drawn by other people who are now making money off of them C) used for over-seas merchandise that other people are profiting off of.

So this article came out today and basically said that Kathleen Kennedy got shot down by the Mouse for asking for an extension for Ep 7's release. Things cited in the article were Kathleen and Abrams bickering over casting decisions and Arndt spending too much time (and money) working on script rewrites. This explains Abrams and Kasdan taking over scriptwriting duties. The article also says that Abrams is more in line w/ Disney wanting to hit the 2015 release date. This leads me to believe that Abrams is waiting for his big payday. Very likely he only got a small chunk up front and has a big deal in place where he'll get film & merchandising points. He won't get hugely paid until the film is released so of course he would want it to come out ASAP. Course this is risky, because if the film is crap, those paychecks won't be as big as he's hoping for.

The studio demanding time constraints on the film is why George kept his company independent for so long. He didn't want to have to answer to anyone. He could set his own time schedules and any delays were on him only. Can a "Star Wars" movie be made in only a year and a half? Sure. We're 10 years now after "Revenge of the Sith" thanks to the CGI technology advances that George made w/ his films, movies can be made a lot faster now; just think of how quickly the Harry Potter films were cranked out w/o any loss of quality. Abrams wanting to do the film on standard film rather than film it in HD might cause some delays, but that'll be on his head if it happens.

I think at this point fans should start getting worried, there's been nothing but shufflings behind the scenes and nothing announced about the film actually moving forward, which is lovely considering it's supposed to go into full production in like January. I would think that they would need time to start choreographing fight scenes, fitting costumes, etc w/ the actors, that was always a big part of the pre-production periods that George built into his 3 year plans for the other films.

Who knows - maybe they'll just cast everyone from "Spartacus" so they won't have to train them to use lightsabers.

So after being (and continue to be) underwhelmed by AGENTS OF SHIELD, I'm moving forward with things to watch. Several new shows premiere this week that I'll be checking out.

Spoilers abound below -

So far this season I've watched 2 new shows, Sleepy Hollow on Fox and Agents of SHIELD.

[Spoiler (click to open)]Sleepy Hollow  -  I caught the premiere of Sleepy Hollow while on vacation in Kauai and was pleasantly surprised. I had zero interest in this show when I heard about it...blah boring, whatever. Turns out, it's pretty stinking good! They've immediately set up a really cool mythology on the series and it's set to be a Fox darling in that it looks like monsters of the week will be running wild on the show. I like the two leads. The guy who's Ichabod is strangely hot, he's got a John Corbett vibe with his looks and a very sexy English accent - ohlala! There's the fish out of water thing w/ the show with him freaking out over 21st century stuff that's always amusing. His partner Lt Mills is a tough chick but nicely balances being freaked out by the weirdness around her. The two play well off of each other.

Mythology set up - Ichabod decapitated the horseman during the Revolutionary war - turns out he was one of the four horsemen and bringers of the Apocalypse. His wife Katrina had been a witch and put a spell on Ichabod to wake him up again when the horsemen would rise again to complete their task. Headless horseman arose looking for said head and Ichabod woke from his dream spell. Abbie Mills got to see the Headless horseman after it killed her mentor and left him headless. She, we learned, had seen something as a kid (along w/ her sister) that shows that she's supposed to be on this crazy journey to stop the horsemen with Ichabod.

I do wish they had crafted the show in a way that it wasn't fully procedural - I'm so bloody sick of cop shows it isn't even funny. BUT at least it's unique and the entire cast is engaging, the writing is smart and sophisticated. Let's hope that even though it's not doing so great right now in the ratings that Fox will stick with it.

Agents of SHIELD - I'm a newer Joss fan - meaning I didn't watch Buffy and only watched part of Angel. Love Firefly and did watch Dollhouse for a while. One thing I loved about those 2 shows were the strong ethno-diverse casts - even if he had abundantly white folk in the cast, they didn't all look the same. Agents of SHIELD this is NOT the case. I don't know if this is supposed to be this way or not but other than Ming Na Wen who's Asian, there isn't a single non-white, non-brunette person in the cast (excluding Coulson.) This made watching the pilot, IMO very jarring and confusing. If you were only casually paying attention it was easy to get Simmons, Skye, and Agent Hill mixed up. Fitz and Ward both have brown curly hair - yes one is taller and handsome, but they still look similar.

I also flat out don't buy Skye as an uber smart hacker chick. I guess she's actually 1/2 Asian, but I just look at the girl and think she looks like Alyssa Milano (kudos to her, Alyssa is gorgeous.) Her looks don't bother me as much as the fact that someone who "lives in a van" shouldn't have beautiful glossy hair and wear designer clothes. She should have her hair thrown off of her face, willy-nilly and should have worn either funky or functional clothes. She's lacking that anarchist attitude also that Eliza Dushku could've pulled off in a snap.

All of that being said - the show is flashy, it's got a nice high budget. The pilot could've used being 2 hours I think, but It was ok. I liked the Superhero of the week storyline, you really felt for Michael the poor test subject Dad. I like Coulson and I LOVE Miranda May - she's got that stoic fierceness that we all love about Zoe from Firefly. The geeks are pretty cute, I just think Ward needs some development, so far he's pretty but flat.

They set up things for a good fun show w/ danger lurking around every corner, I just hope that they find their rhythm and they work on building more mysteries to keep things continually interesting.
