Upcoming Appointment Television

  • The newest (to the U.S.) Doctor Who special will premiere tomorrow night at 6 PM, 9 PM Eastern, on BBC America. It's titled The Next Doctor, which is intentionally misleading since the Tenth Doctor still has some time left before he regenerates. It's actually a Christmas special featuring the best gift of all: Cybermen. A second special, Planet of the Dead, will air on July 26th.

  • The Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood is coming back to television as well. The mini-series Children of Earth will premiere on July 20th on BBC America. The mini-series is five episodes long with each episode airing on successive nights that week. I'm kinda bummed that neither Doctor Who or Torchwood are getting full series this year but any new programming is better than nothing.

  • The second season of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 begins this Monday June 29th at 8 PM, 11 PM Eastern, on the Sci-Fi Channel. I've enjoyed the heck out of Gundam 00 thus far and I can't wait to see how they follow up the first season's finale.

  • After a long absence Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit is back on the air Saturday nights on [adult swim]. More importantly new episodes begin airing on August 22nd. That's nearly a year after the series first premiered. I'm glad they finally got their issues sorted out and we can finally see past the tenth episode.
