Bacon Bits: VERONICA MARS Movie, Emmys, and More

– EW’s Michael Ausiello says Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell are talking about a Veronica Mars movie. Don’t dust off that Neptune Pirates letter jacket just yet, though. Between the two pilots already on Thomas’ plate and the chances of any studio greelighting a feature film version of a TV show that averaged only 2.5 million viewers, we’re more likely to get a Serenity sequel than to see this baby get off the ground.

– The Emmys want you to help choose TV’s most memorable moments. Watch clips and vote online at emmys.abc.com until Sept. 15. Just don’t ask me why the M*A*S*H where Henry dies is part of the “comedy” category.

– Can’t figure out what all the 90210 fuss is about? SoapNet will be airing a 24-hour marathon of the original Beverly Hills, 90210 on Sept. 1st to ring in the premiere of the CW’s spinoff the following night.

– The Bad News: Sci Fi Channel has canceled Stargate Atlantis (the series will finish out its fifth and final season in January). The Good News: the network has greenlit a two-hour movie based on the series.

– Scott Foley and Elizabeth Banks will each be returning to Scrubs this season, for one- and two-episode guest spots, respectively.

  1. Wouldn’t it be great if Buffy’s “The Gift” was the scene that won? If only to allow a whole lot of people who’ve always relegated Buffy’s awesomeness to the “it’s a teen show” basement a chance to see what a top-notch drama it was..

  2. The M*A*S*H question loops back around to the frustration you and I have with the Emmys every year–why is Pushing Daisies a comedy? Why is Boston Legal a drama? And in terms of a poll like this, why wouldn’t the Emmy folks try to double their pleasure, double their fun–why not have a category for best dramatic moment in a “comedy” (there’s your Henry Blake moment) and best comedic moment in a drama (I’m leaning toward Josh Lyman in fisherman get-up, but that’s just off the top of my head). Anyone who loves TV enough to vote in that poll is going to enjoy having more categories to vote in anyway.

    *off to vote for Buffy*
