The Good News…

A couple feel good items of interest for you today.  First for fans of the FX drama Rescue Me new episodes started airing last night.  The brooding meandering series has found some modest fan support over its first two seasons but hasn’t garnered the attention of FX hits such as The Sheild or Nip, Tuck.  The series centers on a New York firefighter (Leary) who is watching his life literally burn and spiral out of control.  It’s either quite excellent or easily dismissive given your taste (and if you want to taste you better try it while it’s hot because odds are this one’s not going to last much longer). 

Also of interest to true Sci-fi nerds out there – Blade Runner will get re-released this September on DVD as the film will get a limited run in theaters as well!  Then, as to not be out-Lucas’ed, Warner Home Video will release a brand new “final cut” DVD edition in early 2007 which will include all versions of the film from the first theatrical version, the international version, and the director’s cut.  The Sci-fi noir film is an adaption of Philip K. Dick’s novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” and weaves a tale about a detective (Harrison Ford) tracking down four replicants (human looking robots) who have hijacked a ship and returned to Earth seeking their maker (William Sanderson, without his brothers Darryl and Darryl).  Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Edwards James Olmos, and Daryl Hannah also star in what most agree is one of the finest Sci-fi films ever made.
