The surviving members of Monty Python, along with Robin Williams, have a new project in the works: a sci-fi comedy called "Absolutely Anything."

The Pythons will voice a group of aliens who give an earthling the power to do "absolutely anything." Their reason? To see how much trouble he causes. What can I say, aliens are jerks. There is also a talking dog, voiced by Robin Williams. Of course there is. Still, I'll see almost anything with Monty Python attached to it. Even if director Terry Jones says it's not explicitly a "Monty Python" film.

"It's not a Monty Python picture, but it certainly has that sensibility," he said. That's good enough for me.

Holy s**t, please let this happen! Nothing is officially set up yet, but there is interest from both sides. Matt Smith said in a recent interview:

"Let's get Peter Jackson to direct one and go and make it in New Zealand. I would love to, I will campaign endlessly to come over and film there."

And Peter Jackson thinks that's a good idea too.

"I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, and I think Matt's fantastic. Just name a time and place, and I'll be there!"

What kind of episode do you think Jackson would direct?

Fox has decided not to renew "Terra Nova" for a second season. While the series had some problems, it was definitely showing signs of improvement, and had an amazing series finale. Unfortunately, it didn't have the ratings to justify the expense of each episode.

This does not necessarily mean the series is over. 20th Century Fox TV, which produces the series, is shopping the show to other networks. Maybe it would do better in the hands of Syfy or AMC.

What do you think? Are you sad to see "Terra Nova" go? Would you continue to watch if it gets picked up somewhere else?

Producer Rick McCallum talks about the challenges involved in making a "Star Wars" live action TV show. There's some good details revealed here. They have over 50 scripts completed, each an hour long. The show will take place between episodes three and four. The working title they have right now is "Star Wars: Underworld." Hopefully by the time they're able to actually produce the show, they'll have come up with something less generic.

Are you looking forward to this being on television in the next couple years? Or do you think this will turn out like the prequels?

Yes, that is The Doctor riding a horse. It seems the seventh season of "Doctor Who" will take Amy, Rory, and The Doctor to the old west.
