XF2 Preview on Entertainment Tonight

It's slowly starting to trickle in but it looks like media coverage for XF2 has begun.

The official teaser trailer has been released although it isn't much different from the trailer shown at WonderCon. Sure I stayed up till 2:30 the night before a big presentation but it still got my little X-Phile heart thumping.

Unfortunately they didn't air the ultra cute intro with the interviewer and David Duchovny that is already available on the ET website but someone has already uploaded it here.

Journeyman, New Amsterdam, & Moonlight cancelled; The Border preps for Fall launch of season 2

When it comes to new TV shows I tend to have this rule. I rarely watch a series in its first outing and it isn't until a second or third season that I check out shows that had struck me as interesting and have somehow managed to make it through the network television gauntlet.

The X-Files--middle of its 5th season.
Smallville--middle of its 5th season.
Supernatural--reruns of the 1st season in preparation for season 2.
Six Feet Under--3rd season
Ally McBeal--3rd season
Roswell--2nd season
Homicide: Life on the Streets--4th season
Gilmore Girls --6th season
Veronica Mars--3rd season

Of course there are exceptions to that rule. I was there for the very beginnings of Deadwood and Rome (both on HBO), Friday Night Lights on NBC, Millennium on Fox, and this season's Damages on FX. However as a general rule and as a means of protecting myself from getting too attached to a series that probably won't even make it past their 3rd episode, I generally choose to stay away. Sure I follow the media buzz surrounding those shows that I'm interested in but I always stay a safe distance away. Pre-launch buzz doesn't always translate into ratings. Can you say Bionic Woman, because I can.

However this season I deviated from the very plan that had always worked so well for me. My theory is that the shows that appealed to me reminded me of shows that are near and dear to my heart.
