According to Zap2It's news post, FOX scheduled the premiere of the fourth season of "24" for Sunday, January 9, 2005. While the network recently announced that the new season would begin on Monday, January 3, the revised date will allow "24" to launch with three hours of programming over two intense nights. The Sunday sneak will also let FOX tease the lauded drama following coverage of the NFC Wild Card game.
The fourth longest day of Jack Bauer's (Kiefer Sutherland) life will start with a two-hour episode, as the Emmy-winning series begins a 24-episode run that won't be interrupted by repeats or preemptions (unless FOX unearths a couple "American Idol" specials that are just too pressing to keep on the shelf). After the two-hour episode, which will air from 8-10 p.m., the show will move into its regular Monday 9 p.m. ET time the following night (January 10).

ABC will be reshowing the pilot episode of The Lost tonight at 8:00 PM for two hours. If you haven't seen it, be sure to watch it if you want suspense, adventure, action, a few cute women (in binikis!), etc. It's a very good TV show series by J.J. Abrams, the creator of my current favorite TV spy show Alias.
Ulic and I agree this is a good show. Thanks to Spaceman Spiff to tell me about it, and he still hasn't seen it!

From The Digital Bits for 9/28/2004:
"We certainly expected this... New Line has announced that the 4-disc Special Extended DVD Editions of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King will all be available in a single box set on 12/14 (SRP $119.97). So if you haven't gotten them yet, here's the perfect chance. Basically, the three separate 4-disc sets will be packaged together in a new outer slipcase. There's nothing new in this release - no exclusive bonus discs or anything. This is just a way to sell all the Extended Editions in one package for those who may wish to purchase them that way."

Dark Horizon's story says:
"Fox has released details of the first episode of the fourth season of "24" over at Mediasharx and finally some details about this 'slimmed down' new season have been revealed. Coming off a solid but somewhat disappointing third year, Fox has revived the show a bit by leaving only Kiefer Sutherland as the main regular returning this time around whilst much of the cast has been restaffed.

Star Wars vs. Star Trek in Five Minutes article defines itself:
"First, Star Wars vs. Star Trek normally means "could t' Empire kick t' Federation's @ss". If it's a question o' taste (ie- "do you like Star Wars more than Star Trek"), debate becomes impossible because t' answer be subjective. Anyway, once we agree that we're talkin' about military prowess, people like t' perform substitutions: instead o' Federation vs Empire, suddenly it's t' Borg vs t' Empire, or Species 8472 vs t' Empire, or t' Q vs t' Empire, or perhaps t' race that built t' Dyson Sphere vs t' Empire, because all o' them showed up at some time or other in Star Trek. But lest we forget, Star Trek be basically about t' Federation, remember? That's t' technology base. Subject changes be quiet admissions that t' Empire would wipe t' floor with t' main characters o' Star Trek, so you've got t' resort t' one-episode wonders (even if they're long-gone, or just as likely t' turn on t' Federation, or if they've been stymied by t' Federation in t' past, which would call their abilities into question)."
