Yesterday we wrote about the demise of 20th Century Props and the auction of their collection - today we can notify you of another auction occurring in..... 2010! If you are going to ComicCon you should check out the Profiles in History display of"Lost" props that will be auctioned in 2010 and start saving up for that Dharma Initiative bag of potato chips that escaped the clutches of Hurley.
"Wipeout" is on tonight and it will be on for at least another season asABC has renewed the program.
Any "Drawn Together" fans out there? For some reason Comedy Central is going to be doing a feature length movie version - you can learn more about it at ComicCon where we are sure the response will be enthusiastic but here in the real world we're not so sure about it. Does anyone remember what a flop the "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" movie was? We seem to recall a larger fan base for that series.---
