The triumphant return of Geek in Review

Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Geek in Review picks up a month later with a roundup of news from the far corners of the science fiction and fantasy universe we like to call Nerdvana:

i-want-to-believe.jpg1. Battlestar Galactica’s Tahmoh Penikett (Karl “Helo” Agathon) has signed on to the latest Joss Whedon-Eliza Dushku venture. He’ll play an FBI agent in Dollhouse.

2. Officially canceled: Bionic Woman by NBC and Jericho (again) by CBS. But don’t be surprised if Jericho emerges from the brink of destruction to find a new home on cable. It’s not the end of the world.

3. Sir Ian McKellen blogs that he is eager to reprise his role as Gandalf the wizard in a big-screen version of The Hobbit, and will do so “if Peter Jackson and I have anything to do with it, he being the producer and me being, on the whole, a very lucky actor.” Although Guillermo del Toro is widely expected to direct, nothing is official.

4. The truth is out there once more.
